We know that there were two Johannes Scherrer that emigrated in 1730. One was the Uncle of Augustus, age 33, the other was Augustus' brother age 16. We have a record of Johannes, son of Frantz m. Maria Barbara in Lachen-Speyerdorf in 1739. The date of his marriage to Maria Catherine was 1737 that other researchers have found in PA. There is a possibility that Maria Catherine died, Johannes traveled back overseas to marry Barbara. The children of Johannes birthdates start in 1740 which would fit in with his marriage of Barbara. As usual, we have a mystery instead of answers.....
