This is a "Needle in a Haystack" question??
My GGGG-Grandmother Catherina was born 10-31-1763 in either Maryland or Pennsylvania, she married George Best abt. 1787 and they lived in Littlestown, Adams, Pa, she died on March 6, 1849 in Littlestown.
Little is known about her except her Birthdate (From her Headstone in Christ United Church of Christ Cemetery)
Her husband George (Baist) Best was a Hessian Soldier that Escaped an Army Prison while being transported and was in Taneytown, Md. Recently some papers were recovered about him and they have the name "Rohrbach" on the Communicant list, also a Grandchild of this Couple has the middle name "Rohrbach", So there is a possibility that her Maiden name was Rohrbach.
So... I have seen References on this list Regarding books about the Rohrbach Family and I was wondering if anyone has access to these Books? If so would they mind looking up the Name Catherina born 10-31-1763?
