According to the 1834 census, Anna Regina Menzer was 40 years old that year, giving her a birth year of 1794. This means she should appear in the 1798 Grimm census with her birth family as an 4 year old. After reviewing the 1798 census, there were only two women named Anna Regina who could be a match:
Family #78 Anna Maria Regina Stoll 1796
Family #A8 Anna Regina Fritzler Stehl 1790, Husband: Johannes Stehl
Anna Regina Fritzler was already matched to Johannes Stehl for similar name and age reasons. The deciding factor in that match was to assume that she did not marry a sibling or cousin, as Johannes Stehl (surname spelled numerous ways) would have been. This leaves Anna Maria Regina Stoll as the only possible wife for Johann Heinrich Menzer. The Menzer family was #64 in the 1798 census, so in terms of proximity, the families lived relatively near each other.
