What Alexander Mack Jr. recorded in his list of deaths was (as transcribed
in English): "Bro. Christopher Kalckloeser and his wife, the sister."
(Source: The Day Book/Account Book of Alexander Mack, Jr. (1712-1803),
Kutztown, The Pennsylvania German Society, 2004, p. 95. The transcription
in German (p. 33) is much more interesting: "Br Christophel Kalckglöser und
swin Weib die sh. Mariahlösel." This could explain the entry in Brumbaugh.
Do you suspect that there were two marriages: first, Maria Mack, and
second, Maria Leisel, or that there were two Christopher Kalckloesers? In
my opinion, Christopher was married to Maria Mack when they came over on the
Ship Allen. I say this for two reasons. First there is the matter of the
marriage record which we have uncovered. Second there was the positioning
of the wives and other women on the Ship: Maria [nee Mack?] Kalklieser was
next to Anna Margaret Mackin who in turn was next to Phillipina Mackin (see
List A). I believe that all three of these Mack women were sisters,
although I don't know who their parents were.
This Kalckglöser family is extremely difficult to figure out. If you look
at Brumbaugh, p. 399, you will find a "Ludwig Kalckglaeser and wife" in a
list of the early Conestoga Brethren. Their identities are explained by no
one to my knowledge. Usually the men's names include Johann Heinrich,
Christoffel, and Emmanuel.......but Ludwig?????? Who was he?
