Descendants of Matthias Strayer I

 

Strayer-Stroher-Strohr-Streyer

From immigration records we find a Joh.Matheis landing in Philadelphia on Sept.11, 1749 and Joh.Mattheis Strohr Sept.7, 1748.Although we do not know if either is an ancestor of Elizabeth Strayer Metzger they appear to be in the time frame that Mattheis I and Matheis II, a child at the time, may have immigrated. The earliest verifiable ancestor records is Mattheis Stroher II marriage to Anna Barbara Brechtbiel on Mon Mar. 21,1775 in the marriage records of Rev. John Casper Stoever,Lebanon County,Pa.
