Hanna Mühlschlägel was born on 11 November 1771 in Berks County, Pennsylvania.1
Hanna was baptized on 11 November 1771 at St. Peter's Church in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Her father's diary, translated from German, reads: "11 November 1771 is my daughter born to the world and then prepared for holy baptism, the witness was Catharina Braunerin, widow, she gave the child the name Hanna, baptized by Preacher Michael."1
She was the daughter of Johann Andreas Mühlschlägel and Anna Maria Emmitt.1
According to Grace Kelso Garner in Earliest Settlers of Western Frederick-Eastern Hampshire Counties, Hanna and Catharine were twins. However, their father gives different birth (or baptism?) dates so I am not sure this assertion is correct.2
Hanna married Colonel George Parks, son of John Parkes (III) and Susanna Elrod, in Hampshire County, Virginia.2
Hanna and George had 5 daughters and 3 sons. Only the names of 6 children are known. These children are John, William, Susan Alice, Elizabeth, Philena and Sarah.3
The 1790 census records for Virginia have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found.
The 1800 census records for Virginia have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found.
George died on 23 July 1842, leaving Hanna a widow.2
Hanna died on 19 December 1858 in Hampshire Co.3
She was 87 years old.
She and George were buried in Parks Burial Ground (Quaker Cemetery) in Hampshire Co.3
She is the daughter of Johann Andreas Mühlschlägel, original immigrant.

At first I thought these dates were baptizism dates but in his last entry he writes "born to the world and then prepared for holy baptism" which made me think his entries were birth dates.
