a. See #7 that Margaret Zumwalt married a John Link.
b. By 1755 Henry Heiser/Houser, step-brother to John Link moved to (now)
Shenandoah Co., VA, and lived in the vicinity of the Zumwalt family.
c. Between 1755 and 1769 John Link would have had opportunity to have
accompanied or visited Henry Heiser and met Margaret Zumwalt.
d. By early 1770, after the death of his father Martin Link in Dec. 1769, John
had returned to PA and his son was baptized there. See #29 on Link page.

f. In his 1783 will, John Link named John Mauk as an executor. See #35 on Link page.
g. One witness to the will of John Link was Frantz Jacob. See #35 on Link page.
This would appear to be Johannes Franciscus Jacob who was born 15 Feb. 1732 and
baptized at Contwig.32 Frantz Jacob was a first cousin to John Link's wife

See #7 that Catharine was a child of Andrew's second wife. See #21 that Margaret, who
was from Andrew's first wife that she was born about 1747. One of their ages as given
would be incorrect. As Catharine married in 1772, it may more likely be her age that
was listed incorrectly, and she may have more likely been born about 1753 than 1744.

Margaret Zumalt of lawful age appears in open Court and after being duly Sworn on her oath disposeth
and saith that she has been acquainted with the above Mary Zumwalt ever since the both were children.
That they (deponent) and said Mary Zumwalt were both raised in the State of Kentucky that she knows
the above named Mary Zumwalt is the widow of the above named Adam Zumwalt that she was present and said
Adam Zumwalt and said Mary Zumwalt married but that she said deponent has very little education & is not
in the habit of keeping dates and cannot speak positively as to the date of the marriage But she believes
it was about the time mentioned in the foregoing declaration to wit the 24th day of May in the year 1785.

Subscribed & sworn to in open Court before the count court of Warren County Missouri aforesaid on this
20th day of August 1839.
[Margaret Zumwalt was the widow of Adam Zumwalt's brother Andrew Zumwalt.]
That Margaret had known Mary [Roth] since childhood and was present when she married Adam Zumwalt fits
with Margaret Lail, daughter of George.
As noted on WikiTree: "This primary source testimony makes it impossible to assign her to a Baldridge
family, because none of the Baldridges were there."
