      Rebecca Shrout, Age 80, Sex F, Race W, POB Pennsylvania, Blind

    13. [S997] AA: Conclusion - Marriage, (Date posted to database 21 Jan 2019).
      In my research I have not found any primary document for the marriage between Casper Shrout and Rebecca. I have also not found any primary document that gives the maiden name of Rebecca.

      In the court case mentioned in the conclusion for the parents of Casper it mentions Rebecca as his wife. In the settlement of Casper's will it mentions his wife as Rebecca.

      The marriage date of about 1789 is based on the marriage about 1 year prior to their first child's date of birth. This is even a problem as the birth of their first child is just a guess.

      Based on the above information I have concluded that Casper's wife is Rebecca, with no maiden name, and they were married about 1789.
