Johann Friedrich Baumgärtner aka Frederick Bumgarner named son Joel in his will (Orange County, Virginia Will Book 2: 94). Frederick's wife was named Catherine as evidenced in lawsuit (Orange County, Virginia Order Book 4: 280.). Catherine was also supposed to have been granted administration of Frederick's will from the will book (Ardys V. Hurt, "Johann Frederick Baumgardner," Beyond Germanna, 1, no. 5, (September 1989): 41-43).
Son Joel Bumgarner named his mother as Catron Deer in his will (Culpeper County, Virginia Will Book B: 111).
John Deer names his "beloved wife Catharine" in his will (Culpeper County, Virginia Will Book B: 422-423).
There were only two men surnamed Deer (originally Hirsch in German) in the area at the time, Martin whose wives were named Pheronicka/Frances and Anna Maria and Johannes/John whose wife was named Catherine.
