Surnames: GEHRES/STUTZMAN
Searching for more information on Sarah (Sally) Gehres, b 1809 in Schuylkill Co, PA, daughter of Johannes Gehres. Sally married David Stutzman in Schuylkill Co. Sally and David were parents of William, Annie, Henrietta, Joel, Sarah, John, David and Mary Stutzman. Sarah and David are both buried in the cemetery at Christ Church, Fountain, Schuylkill Co, PA. Who was her mother? And who were the parents of Johannes Gehres?

Any help would be appreciated

I am also researching the parents. Floyd's Northumberland genealogy/history names the parents as John Gehres and Catharina Otto, also naming the sibblings. I have not been able to find anything more about the parents, who are said to be buried at Deep Creek Church, he having died in 1820 and she in 1873. One of the children had an apparent mother living with her listed twice in a census as Mary Cares and Mary Carus--of course, spelling varied widely by census-taker when those visited were illiterate in English. Another source lists the parents as George Kehres and Catharine Otto. The oldest child was William K. Kehres, born 1808, and he is said to have adopted the Kehres spelling. I would welcome any detail on the parents.
