Undersigned by Thomas Kieffer, guardian, and Catharina Becker, as mother.
She became godmother to Maria Anna Hummel in 1753. Is this Philips third wife?
There is no mention of Maria Ester Kieffer as a mother or godmother from 1762-1764. In 1763 (p.315) a woman named Anna Maria ?Hintz is listed as the wife of a man named Andre Hartinger (occupation: miller). In 1763 (p.318) a man named Andre Hartinger (occupation: miller)and his wife Magdalena ?Hertz had a child and the godfather was Ignatius Fridman. Ester Kieffer was the godmother to two of Ignatius Fridman's children. I think Ester died about 1762 and Andre remarried ?Hertz/?Hintz.
