Margaret/Anna Margaretha LeFevre aka Margaret Lefever [Anna Margaretha]

Anna Margaretha married Gehrhard Mohr sometime before 31 MAY 1747. In the records of CONGREGATION OF THE AUGSBURG CONFESSION IN SAUCON AT PHILIP SCHLAUGH'S, NOT FAR FROM THE BIG LEHIGH AND FORKS OF THE DELAWARE, Church Book, p. 7,80 Gehrhard Mohr and wife Anna Margaretha Feber are sponsors at the baptism of a daughter of Pädric and Catharine Dewenne, 31 MAY 1747. Again on p. 11 80 of the church record we find that Margaretha Mohr along with Georg Kiefer are sponsors at the baptism of Christina Feber, parents Abraham Lefevre and wife Elisabeth, on 21 MAR 1751.

Gehrhard Mohr apparently died and Anna Margaretha then married Jan John Van Etten.

Anna Margartha and Jan apparently moved to Rowan Co., NC in 1775; d: Rowen Co., NC.

Margaret Lafevre married:

1) Gehrhard Mohr before 31 MAY 1747; d. sometime after 21 MAR 1751.

2) Jan "John" Van Etten ca. 1757 in Pennsylvania he was eldest son of Jacob Van Etten & Anna Westbrook, b: 17 APR 1720; d: 20 MAR 1786 Rowan Co., NC

Note: Margaret would have been over age 30 when she married Jan Van Etten, This suggests a prior marriage.
"John Lafevre sold 260 acres of land in Worcester Township to his son-in-law John Van Etten on 21 May 1764 for 500 pounds (wife Christina also signed deed)"[2]
