Johan Michael Conver 1734-1810


Immigrant Ancestor

Johan Michael Conver
Born  1734 in  Zweibr├╝ken, Palatinate, Germany
Died 1810 Pine Grove Twp., Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania
Anna Catherina 
Born: 1742
Died: 1811

Several researchers name Catherina Truckenmiller as the wife of Michael Conver.  They list Catherina as a daughter of Sebastian Truckenmiller, immigrating ancestor of my husbands Truckenmiller line.  I think this is extremely unlikely.  For one, I have her as being born in 1752, not 1742.  But it's possible, I haven't looked too hard at this point.
