Jody Schmidt contributed the following picture of Katharina Margaretha Wunsch Borgert
[parents pictured just above - Johann Freidrich Wunsch and Maria Margaetha Lust/Loust]
with her second husband Jacob Arnbrister. Shortly after this picture was posted to the web we learned that the child is Jacob's youngest daughter. She is Bettye Grant's Aunt Rose, living and well at the age of 96 years in December 2001. I would appreciate any additional information on the Borger line or the Arnbrister line.
Further Contacts desired.
