Hi all you NY Bixler Researchers,
after all this time I have finally found a death record, that lists Christian Bicksler/Bixler's wife's name. She would be the mother to Jacob as she was listed in Christian's (Sr's) will by just the given name "Eva" (Berks Co., Courthouse)
The death certificate listed in 1853 Schuylkill Co., for Jacob's brother, Christian (Jr.) lists the following: (reason for this taking so long to find was a spelling variation in his name) Christian's (Jr's) death was listed under the surname, Biscler, who died Lower Mahantongo (which is now considered Hegins twp. Schuylkill Co.)
Parents of Christian: Christian Bixler and Eve Burgend, sometimes spelled Bergund. Hope this helps with filling in Jacob's mother's name.
And many thanks to Katharine, Judy, Richard, and the rest of you Bixler descendants who got the "ball rolling" on Peter's line in NY. By the way, his brother Abraham (baby of the Christian Bicksler Sr. family) went to Groveland, Oakland Co., Michigan where he is buried in Ortonville Cemetery with wife, Elizabeth Frick. Thanks again -
Sarah (Bixler) Quinn
