"Anna 4w old".
DEATH: Must have died before 25 July 1820 as she is not mentioned in her father's will.
Maybe she doesn't belong in this family, but her parent's names at the time of her baptism are: "

NOTE: Maybe "Mari-herter" and "Hannah" are the same person? "Mari-herter" is not
mentioned in her father's will, dated 25 July 1820. It is possible she died before this date, but I
think that the former is the answer, given name should be "Hannah", and one of the children
deleted as a duplicate. Further research should give us an answer.
