Distinguishing Elisabetha Ehrhardt and Elisabetha Staub

The following timeline, built from the parish register records of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church (formerly St. Peter's Rock Hill) near Woodsboro, Frederick County, Maryland, shows that Elisabetha (___) Ehrhardt and Elisabetha (____) Staub are two different people. It remains uncertain from these parish records whether either of them were the daughter of Johannes Flinner and his wife Anna.

Note that the parish records spell the parishioner names inconsistently. Ehrhardt is sometimes spelled "Ehrhard" and Staub is sometimes spelled "Stab." The name Elisabetha is sometimes spelled "Elisabeth." All parish baptism records for either couple are reflected in the table below. Also included is the record of the confirmation of Peter Staub and Elisabeth his wife, showing their marriage by Sep 1769.

These records are all from the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church formerly St. Peter’s Rock Hill near Woodsboro, Frederick County, Maryland, Parish Registers, 1767-1889. A digital copy of this publication is available on Ancestry.com as a part of the database "Pennsylvania and New Jersey, U.S., Church and Town Records, 1669-2013" ($ubscription required).[1] The specific page numbers of the parish records cited are included in this table, with a link to the relevant page in the Ancesty.com database.

From these records, we know the following:

  1. Elisabetha Ehrhardt/Ehrhard and Elisabetha Staub/Stab were both living at the same time, married to different men, and having children during the period from 1769-1778
  2. Johannes and Anna Flinner acted as godparents for at least some children of both couples, but others also acted as godparents for both of them. Therefore, while the fact that the Flinners sometimes acted as their godparents does suggest there was some relationship between the Flinners and both Elisabethas, it does not establish that they were parents of either of them.
