52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - #17 Mary Floerl

My paternal 4th great grandmother Mary Floerl was born in Effingham County, Georgia, on September 19, 1767, to John Floerl and Hannah Brandner. I don't have very much information about Mary yet. Her father arrived in Georgia in 1741 with his parents as part of the Salzburger immigration from Austria and settled in the Salzburger community of New Ebenezer in Effingham County. Mary's mother was born in Effingham County, but according to some family trees on, Mary's maternal grandparents Mathias Brandner and Mary Horl were Salzburger immigrants. Mary had at least one brother, Israel.

Mary married John Casper Waldhauer, another Salzburger descendant, on May 12, 1786, probably in Effingham County. She gave birth to ten children over about a 20-year period: John C. (after 1786-1881), Elizabeth (1792-1870, my 3rd great grandmother), Charles (1792-?), Mary Catherine (1794-1874), William (1797-1837), Susanna (1799-1823), Israel F. (1801-1874), Salome (1804-?), Margaret (1805-?), and Tabitha (1807-1817). (I'm not sure I have the correct information on all of the children.)

Mary died on March 27, 1825, in Effingham County. Her husband John died five years later on March 10, 1830.
