4) NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):
Anna Martha Nachbar was born in about 1724 in Germany, the first child of Johann Leonhard Nachbar and his wife Maria Margaretha --?--. The family migrated to America in 1738, arriving in Philadelphia aboard the ship "Robert and Alice," with the Schenckle, Weiss, Tofort, Terryberry and other families who settled in the German Valley of Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
Matthias Trimmer married Anna Martha Nachbar married Matthias Trimmer in about 1742, probably in Morris county, the son of Johannes Trimmer[2,4]. They had eight children born between 1743 and 1759, all in Hunterdon County.
When Anna Martha's father died in 1766, his 1765 will said "...To the children of my daughter, Anna Martha Trimmer, the wife of Mathias Trimmer, 200 pounds."
It may be that Anna Martha (Nachbar) Trimmer died between 1759 (when her last child was born) and 1765 when her father wrote his will. There are no death or burial records, and no probate records, for her.
