Surnames: Martin, Herr, Miller
Looking for information on Barbara Herr/Miller who was married to David Martin. David was born in Switzerland 1691 and died in Lancaster co., PA Buried in the Weber-Martin cemetery East Earl Twp. Lancaster Co. I'd like to know why Barbara has those two surnames "Herr/Miller"? Was she married to a Miller before she married David Martin? I know she was b. 1702 but I don't know where. She died 1742 and again I don't know where she was buried. Perhaps she too is at the Weber-Martin cemetery in Lancaster with her husband.
Any information on Barbara certainly would be appreciated.

I am a descendant of Barbara and David Martin.Yes accdg.
to my research Barbara was married to Henry Miller and had
4 children to him After his death she married David Martin and
had 9 children their son Christian is my ancestor.Barbara
was the granddaughter of Hans Herr thro his son Abraham.
David was the son of Christian and Els Martin from Switzer-
land.The Hanns Herr genealogy can be bought from the
Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society in Lancaster Pa.
or at the Hanns Herr House in Willow Street,Pa. There is new
info. from the Martin side Martin A Mennonite Family Tree
The First Five Generations tracing from Christian and Els.
It is also available at the same Historical Society the latter
being a draft which means present descendants are to add
their lines and families and I guess this will be published into
a book. I know nothing about the Millers.It is assumed that
Barbara is buried with her first husband Henry but this has
not been substantiated.I have been to visit the burial place
of David you mentioned and didn't find her grave but that still
doesn't mean anything as some people were buried at the
time with no markers or wooden ones that over time have
deteriorated.Hope I have helped. Beth
