    Krider's (St. Benjamin's) Lutheran Church Cem.

  • Notes 
    • Vol. 9, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, pp. 17, 49 (1995), gives her name as "Margaretha Dotterer" and "Margaretha Beyer." The records of Krider's or St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church report her birth and baptism as: "Margaretha, dau. of Jean and Katharine Dotterer, b. 11 Sept. 1799, bp. 20 Apr 1800. Sponsor: Margaretha Eberle."

      T.J.C. Williams & F. McKinsey, HISTORY OF FREDERICK COUNTY, p.860 (1910), record:
      "Michael Byers [sic] was a cooper and farmer, and spent his whole life near Westminster. He was a soldier in the War of 1812, and the sword he carried is in the possession of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Byers. Michael Byers was married to Elizabeth Dutrow, of Emmitsburg District. Their children are: 1, Noah Amos,...; 2, Joseph; 3, Joshua...; 4, Elizabeth...; 5, David...; 6, George...; 7, Ellen...; 8, John...; 9, Jacob...; 10, Frances Anna...; 11, Caroline.... Michael Byers and his wife were members of the Lutheran Church, in which he was an elder for many years. Both are buried at Krider's Church, near Westminster."

      Margaretha is buried in the Krider's (St. Benjamin's) Lutheran Church cemetery, Westminster, MD, in sec. B, row 13, grave 25, next to her father-in-law Gabriel Byers. Vol. 5, part 1 CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 100 (Carroll Cnty Genealogical Soc'y, 1999). Her tombstone reads, for the most part: "In | Memory of | MARGARET BOYER | consort of Michael Boyer | who departed this life | November 19th 1838 | Aged 40 years 2 months | and 3 days | [poetry below is not legible]."

      Note that if one accepts the tombstone dates as accurate, then her birthday would have been 9 Sep 1798.
    • (Research):
      Woody Rush's "Descendants of Caspar Beier," pp. 3, 8 (2011), records her name as "Margaret Rebecca Dutterer," daughter of John Dutterer and Katharine Pouder. He states that she was born 9 Sep 1798 in Frederick Cnty, MD, and died 12 Nov 1838 in Westminster, Carroll Cnty, MD.
