Pedigree for Joseph Michael Flint
     Maria Margaretha Kraus was born on 15 September 1731.1 She was the daughter of Johann Jacob Kraus and Catharina Elisabetha Nellis.1

Maria Margaretha Kraus married Dieterich Horning, son of Niclaus Horning and Anna Maria Hoffman, say 1748 (Marriage date estimated as one calendar year before the estimated birth year of the first child, Mary Elizabeth).2,3

I am assuming that the Maria Margaretha Krausin listed as the mother of Johann Dieterick Horning in his baptism record is the same women as Mary Margaret listed as his wife in Dieterich Horning's will. If this is so she is the mother of all the children listed in Dieterich Horning's will.3,4
