Adam Brua1

b. before 1734
  • Adam Brua was born before 1734.
  • Possible son. An Adam Brua owned 100 acres of land in Heidelberg Twp., Lebanon Co., Pennsylvania in 1754. No birth record has been found for him in Hirschland, and he could not have been a grandson of the immigrant, Theobald Brua. Adam was the name of Theobald's father, and it would be likely that a son, among a family of many sons, would be named for him. A marriage record in Lancaster Co. for an Adam Brua, Jr. on 25 Feb 1783, states that his father is deceased. An Adam Brua served as a private in the Sixth Battalion, Second Company of Pennsylvania Militia in 1785. Adam Brua, Jr. was living in Cocalico Twp., Lancaster County in 1784, listed as a millstone cutter. His wife was Margaretha Feder, daughter of Heinrich. In 1797 an Adam Brua was living in Hamilton Twp., Franklin Co., Pa., possibly this same Adam.1
