"INDIAN EVE" GRAVE
Eve's husband was
Adam Henry Ernst / Earnest
- born 1735-1740 - died Sept. 1777 (killed by Indians).
Who was Indian Eve??
Up until just recently, Eve was assumed to be a granddaughter of
Wilhelm Imler / Emler
born about 1678
in Baveria, Germany (Town of Emler/Rhine River). Wilhelm's son George Mark Imler / Embler born about 1705 in Bavaria, Germany was assumed to be Eve's father.
New evidence indicates that Eva Catharina may have been the daughter of
Jorg Adam Hillebard/Hellebart.
If you have evidence that will help resolve this uncertainty, please feel free to present it here.
