I have found Elisabetha Catharina Lauck in The Palatine Families of New York vol. 1 pages 522 and 523 by Henry Z Jones, Jr. The spelling of her name at birth is Lauck. It says she was baptized on 10/7/1696. She married Johann Michael Schauer in 1717 (Tulpehocken Chbk. entry after the event).

The will of Michael Schauer of Heidelberg was dated Nov 27, 1771 and probated Aug 26, 1772 (Berks County Will Bk 2, p.117) Upon Michael`s death, his estate was valued at 1950 pounds 11 shilling and two pence. The estate was left to his wife, Elizabeth, for her use until her death, then to be divided equally among his children.

Schauer-284 and Schauer-234 are not ready to be merged because: not the lowest LNAB

Schauer-234 and Schauer-24 appear to represent the same person because: these profiles look like they might be intended to be the same person (but 1699 seems correct birth date - 1720 apparently based on wife b 1720, but possible duplicates for her have b c1700 - and 1820 death appears to be "filler" guess of 100 years from 1720 that some programs add). Please merge if you agree these were intended to represent the same person... and review the profiles for daughter Catherine (sp?): Schauer-10 & Schauer-233 are married to same man but birth dates are 1723 & c1745. Schauer-293 shows b 1731. Thanks!
