Surname Saturday - WIESER (????)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week. I am skipping #501 (since I don't have a name for William Hutchison's (ca 1745-1826) mother) so I am up  to number 505: Margriet Wieser (ca 1726-????). [Note: The 6th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts] 

My ancestral line back to Margriet Wieser is:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) 

6.  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976)
7.  Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977)

14.  Charles Auble (1849-1916)
15.  Georgianna Kemp (1868-1952) 

30.  James Abram Kemp (1831-1902)
31.  Mary Jane Sovereen (1840-1874) 

62.  Alexander Sovereign (1814-1907)
63.  Eliza Putman (1820-1895)

126.  John Putman (1785-1863)
127.  Sarah Martin (1792-1860)

252.  Peter Victorse Putman (1760-1835)
253.  Sarah Mary Kinnan (1761-1841)

504.  Victor Davidse Putman, born before 9 April 1721 in Monmouth, New Jersey, United States; died 1765 in Morris, New Jersey, United States.  He was the son of 1008. David Janse Putman and 1009. Helena.  He married about 1746 in New Jersey, United States.
505.  Margriet/Grietje Wies/Wieser, born about 1726, died New Jersey, United States.
Children of Victor Putman and Margaret Wieser are:
i. Maria Putman, born Bef. 08 October 1749 in Smithfield, Monroe, Pennsylvania, United States; 
ii. Elizabeth Putman, born Bef. 28 April 1751 in Smithfield, Monroe, Pennsylvania, United States; 
iii. Sarah Putman, born Bef. 12 August 1753 in Smithfield, Monroe, Pennsylvania, United States;  
iv. David Putman, born Abt. 1755 in probably Northampton, Pennsylvania, United States; 
v. Johannes Putman, born Abt. 1757 in probably Sussex, New Jersey, United States; died before 14 December 1798 in Newton, Sussex, New Jersey, United States; married Sina.
vi. Peter Victorse Putman, born about 1760 in probably Sussex, New Jersey, United States; died 03 October 1835 in Barrington, Yates, New York, United States; married Sarah Mary Kinnan 20 March 1780 in Wantage, Sussex, New Jersey, United States.

The only clue in the relatively sparse records I have for Margriet Weiser's parents is a man named Nicholas Weiser.  Mark Putman, who shares the early generations of this line with me, notes:

"In about 1745, he married Margaret Wies, who may have been the daughter of Nicholas Wies. Margaret's name is also found in the records as Greitje Wiser.

"In 1749, Victor and Margaret Potman lived in the Minisink Valley of the Delaware River, possibly on the New Jersey side above the Water Gap, across the river at Smithfield, Pennsylvania.  Their three daughters were baptized at the Dutch Reformed Church of Smithfield, Pennsylvania which served both banks of the Delaware River."

So I'm looking for a Wies/Weis or Wieser/Weiser/Wiser, probably  in northeastern Pennsylvania or northwestern New Jersey in the 1710 to 1750 time period.  

I have done no original research on this family or the Wies/Wieser/Weiser/Wiser line.
