Comment

Another Taufscheinof this edition, made for a Sussan May born February 24, 1843 to Jacob Krück and Catharina Bechle of Cumru Township, Berks County, is listed in Stopp, 2:213. In all likelihood this is for a sibling of the Mariana Krick whose certificate is pictured here. This Taufscheinform is identical to PAG1998.168.
