Maria Stamm1,2

d. circa December 1825
ChartsAncestry of David Kipp Melat
     Maria Stamm married Michael Sieger.1,2 She died circa December 1825 in Windsor Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.3
     
Research Note:

Maria Stamm maybe the daughter of Jacob Stamm and an unknown person based on circumstantial evidence. According to the burial record of Maria's daugther Christinia, Maria's maiden name was Stamm. The earliest record of Maria's husband Michael is in 1783 when he appears on the tax list in Albany Township, Berks County which is where Jacob Stamm lived. The proximity of Michael and Maria Sieger with Jacob Stamm suggest a relationship and the possibility that Jacob was Maria's father.4,5,6,7,2
