        Johann Konrad Kämpfer   Georg Philipp Bescherer Georg later married Johannetta Margaretha Leng and they had 3 children born 1751, 1753 and 1755. Given that Georg and his first wife Anna were married in 1740 and had only one child Johannes born in 1744 and that Georg remarried and had his next child in 1751, I suspect that Anna Maria (Donsbach) Bescherer may have died while giving birth or when her son was young. This is purely my speculation. -James "Jamie" Arthur Johnson Anna Maria Donsbach

        Anna Elisabeth Kämpfer   Johannes Bescherer  
  July 26, 1777, is mistakenly listed as both the birth date and marriage date of Anna in the source I referenced. It would be the marriage date, considering her husband's birth date and son's birth date. -James "Jamie" Arthur Johnson b. ?
