Yeah, I'm pretty happy I've gotten where I have too, with some good help mind you. Yeah, I've looked at some of the early records, it's very difficult to make much out.
I was a little thrown by both surnames appearing the same. It's possible this is a relation as well, and not the Joseph I am looking for, father maybe? I was expecting marriage to be closer to the birth date of 1776. If it appears to be a match, I can look further for area births before Anton, maybe I can pick up a few more clues to identify further. Even if I get stonewalled here though, I've still make it back 3 generations further than I was when I started, most of it backed up with solid sources.
Hopefully an expert can clue me in better, thanks!
