Ref:

Early Settlers of Old Mt. Airy by Joseph Rodney Cameron, Sr. shows that
Rosannah Kimberling married Peter Snavely and that there were a total of 7
(seven) children as a result of marriage.

WFT Vol 3 #2309 shows that Rosanna Kimberling married Jacob

incorrect.

September 10, 1840.

Notes for PETER P. SNAVELY:
Records show that Peter was married by John T. Tobler.

Jacob Scherer was the minister for both St. Paul's & Kimberling.
Marriage was performed by John T. Tobler. Who is this John T. ??
Since the Rev. Zubuhler and Johannes T. Tobler left St. Gall. Switz.
on 7 Sep 1736 and arrived in the Carolinas about Nov that year. It
could not have been him since he died in the year 1778 in
"New Windsor" Carolina colony.

Perhaps John Tobler bonded this marriage and the Rev. Jacob Scherer
performed the marriage of his own daughter.

Notes for HANNAH B. SCHERER:
Jacob Scherer was the minister for both St. Paul's & Kimberling.
Marriage was performed by John T. Tobler. Who is this John T. ??
Since the Rev. Zubuhler and Johannes T. Tobler left St. Gall. Switz.
