1. George HeinrichA Barrav birth date unknown.

He married Mary Magdalena Bogenreif.

George Heinrich Barrav and Mary Magdalena Bogenreif had the following child:


child 2 i. Barbara1 Barrav or Barrow was born August 16, 1760. Barbara died December 9, 1831 in Perry/Fairfield Co.,OH., at 71 years of age. Her body was interred after December 9, 1831 in New Reading Cem., Reading Twp., Perry Co.,OH..(362) She married Johann-Adam Anspach in Christ Luthern Church, Stouchsburg,PA., December 28, 1779. Johann-Adam was born in Tulpehocken,Berks Co.,PA. August 21, 1754. Info. from Michael Spaulding, grandson of Donald R. Anspach. He was the son of John Johannes Sr. Anspach and Anna Elizabeth Fischer.

Johann-Adam died February 25, 1838 in Fairfield Co.,OH., at 83 years of age. Karen Anspach Bott is a direct descendant & gave me this info.

His body was interred after February 25, 1838 in New Reading Cemetery, Reading Twp.,, New Reading.(363) He served in the military during war time September 5, 1776 in South Amboy,NJ..(364) Johann-Adam served in the military in Tulpehocken, Berks Co., PA, June 1780.(365) Johann-Adam registered to pay taxes in Tulpehocken, Berks Co., PA, 1790.(366) Johann-Adam applied for bounty land in Reading Twp.,Perry Co.,OH., 1805.(367) (See Johann-Adam Anspach for the continuation of this line.) Barbara's headstone is still readable, though the script used is German and in a style difficult to translate in places. Records from Christ Lutheran Church have the last nama as Barrav. Other sources have it as Barrow, etc. According to Joel Kenderdines, Barrov/ Barrou/ Barrows all mean "barrell stay" in German, the metal strips that bind the barrell. So this may be an occupational based surname. I have been told that Barbara also went by Bogenreif, but do not know what source that came from, all I know of is the church record with Barrav as surname.
