E137 - Vallentine's book is a treasure trove of information about the Zeller family that descended from Johann Heinrich and Johann George Zeller who moved into the Berks County, Pennsylvania area about 1720. It is a derived work, but it is very well documented with over 600 referenced sources.

Hi Barbara. My name is Dan Zeller, and recently I started a free-space project to clean up the Zeller tree back in the 1700s time frame. Anna Maria Briegal was the wife of Johann Heinrich Zeller. He is one of the profiles that we have recently merged from about four separate profiles. We've also merged about four profiles of Anna Maria. I stumbled on yours just yesterday while browsing Zeller profiles. I believe that your Anna Maria Von Berigal is one in the same as Anna Maria Briegal. Please take a look and if you agree, merge the two. You will still be a manager of the merged profile, but you will find a lot more information and connections. I am working on a unified Biography for Anna Maria that I will have posted shortly. Here is a link to our project page. I will be glad to add you if you want to join in. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Zeller_-_1650_-_1850
-- Thanks -- Dan

There are plenty of Perigals in Family Search, however. So it is not a phony surname.
Anyway. Take a look. If you think we have a match, please merge. If not, let me know.

It is difficult to determine what name she went by in her day, but I did a little poking around to see how these names survived over the years. Briegal seems to be the most persistent. There is only one Breughal record in FamilySearch, six for Breugal, 26 for Breigal, and 151 for Briegal.
For the sake of reconciliation, it seems to make the most sense to me to set Last Name at Birth to Briegal and AKA to Breugal.
I suspect that her ancestry in Europe may have well gone by Breugal or Breughal. I could get along with either of those for the AKA.
