  • Name Magdalena [Unknown] 
    • Some researchers have incorrectly shown this Magdalena Eller who is married to Jacob Eller (abt 1758-1830) as Magdalena PETERS. In fact, it is Jacob's GRANDSON Jacob Eller (1823-1907) who marries Magdalena Peters in 1850, about 20 years after the death of the older Jacob Eller.

      This Magdalene [with the unknown last name] (1752 or 1761- ) married the senior Jacob Eller in 1777-8 in Maryland (in the U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900). Jacob Eller (1823-1907), the grandson, married Magdalena PETERS on 5 Aug 1850 in Franklin County, VA. (in the Franklin County, Virginia, Marriage Bond Index, 1786-1858). [2, 3, 4]
