|Eva Maria SIX
Other names for Eva were Eva Maria SIP and Eva Maria THOMAS.
Eva Maria sponsored the baptism of Margeth Kiehl (daughter of Peter and Hanna Kiehl) at Altalaha Lutheran Church on 6 Jun 1786.
Eva married Peter THOMAS, son of Johann Peter THOMAS and Anna Elisabetha KURZ, on 6 Apr 1760 in Bethel Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.1 2 3 (Peter THOMAS was born about Mar 1736 in Pleizenhausen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany 5, baptized on 11 Mar 1736 in Protestant (Evangl.) Church, Pleizenhausen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany 5 and died before Dec 1789 in Bethel Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania 6.)
It is unclear how Eva Maria would have met Peter Thomas, given there is no record of Peter's family in the Bethel Township area. Given that their marriage took place at the conclusion of the Indian uprisings of 1755-1759, perhaps there is some relationship between those events. Eva Maria's family clearly had been forced from their home during portions of this time period. Perhaps they stayed further south in Berks County, or in Lebanon, where Peter may have been raised. Perhaps Peter was in the militia garrisoned at Fort Henry near Eva Maria's home. These ideas are nothing but speculation at this point.
