I believe Anna Maria to be the "Mary" and Maria Anna to be the "Anna" -- if
they followed the typical Pa-German tradition of the first name being the
baptismal name and the second one being the name by which they were usually
called, but I'm not absolutely certain. I have baptism records for Anna
Maria and for Rebecca from Emmanual Lutheran Church in Pottstown.

I have also discovered a suggestion that the Susan(na) to whom John Benner
was married may have been Jacob Hoffecker's (Rebecca Benner's husband)
sister.... working on finding more info to confirm or deny this. Here are
outlines of each Benner line as I have them through the generations under
discussion here; additions & corrections welcome!

Norm, I'll send you an updated gedcom as soon as I'm reasonably sure I
haven't outwitted myself with all the new data...

And, to throw another cat among the pigeons, there are also other Rinewalt
intermarriages among the Benner descendants, and I'm working on connecting
some other Bealers I have with Catharine Benner's sons.

... as someone on one of the lists I read said, "...with all these cousins
intermarrying, it's a wonder we don't all have webbed feet..." ;)

I don't know whether or how they are connected...
