Military Monday - Andreas Kreitzer (Rev. War)

Andreas (Andrew) served as private, Revolutionary War in 7th Company, 6 Battalion, Berks County, PA Militia.  He was born 21 May 1751 and died 5 Dec 1837.  He & his wife, Anna Maria are buried in Altalaha Cemetery in Rehresburg, Berks County, Pennsylvania.  He and Anna were the parents of five known children: Mary, Andreas, Eva, Jacob and Johannes.   Andreas is my 6th great uncle. 

Now if only I could find his brother, Peter, who would be my six great grandfather!  But for now, I'll just enjoy the fact that I found Andreas at all! 

Happy Researching!

Really cool trip finding that stone! Took two trips - 1st in light rain, which got heavier. 2nd time was beautiful weather, just took stone by stone review of the entire cemetery to find this one! Anytime, anytime!
