     Judith Reinwald was born on 16 April 1701.1 Judith was the probable and almost certainly the daughter of Melchior Reinwald. Brecht's Genealogical Record, which provides most of the information concerning the Schwenkfelder genealogies, declares that Judith is the daughter of Melchior on page 886. However it also declares she is the daughter of George Reinwald and his wife Barbara on page 414. An analysis of the claims, which conclusion I agree with, was presented by Jerry Heebner
"http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/SCHWENKFELDER-DESCENDANTS/2008-01/1199594986" Schwenkfelder message board. Judith Reinwald was the daughter of Melchior Reinwald. Judith Reinwald was possibly but unlikely the daughter of George Reinwald and Barbara (?) Judith Reinwald married David Seibt, son of Christopher Seibt, on 28 August 1714.1 Judith Reinwald and David lived in Armenruh, Silesia.1 Judith Reinwald and David immigrated in 1734 to Pennsylvania with their three children. Only two of these three children are known.1 Judith Reinwald died on 13 September 1775 at age 74 years, 4 months and 28 days.1,2 She was buried in Towamencin Schwekfelder Cemetery, Towamencin, Philadelphia County, presently Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.1

MotherJudith Reinwald1 b. 16 Apr 1701, d. 13 Sep 1775
     Casper Seibt was born circa 1 November 1725.1 He was the son of David Seibt and Judith Reinwald.1 Casper Seibt was also known as Casper Seipt.2 He immigrated with his parents David Seibt and Judith Reinwald in 1734 to Pennsylvania.1 Casper Seibt purchased 135 acres of farmland in Towamencin Township, Philadelphia County, now Montgomery County, in Pennsylvania, in 1750. This land was owned, in 1920, by Charles Trumbore and Jonas Kriebel.3 He was naturalized on 4 October 1759 in Supreme Court, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, a subject of the British Crown. The 1923 edition of The Genealogical Record of the Schwenkfelders says that he was naturalized on 1 June 1750.1 This, I believe, is incorrect. The date 1 June 1750 is the date the clerk of the Court issued the record of naturalization for transmission to the Board of Trade. Several of these records, before and after this particular record, were issued over his signature on that day with dates of the Court sitting on various dates.4 He married Rosina Yeakle, daughter of Abraham Yeakle and Maria Wiegner, on 27 November 1750 The ceremony was conducted by the Rev Baltasar Hoffman.1 Casper Seibt and Rosina lived after 1750 on a farm, Towamencin Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.1 Casper Seibt left a will 8 December 1773. He left £20 to his sons David and Abraham, the residue of the estate divided among all his children. He requested his family live together on the farm until his eldest son came of age, at which time the farm was to be sold. His mother was to be supported free of charge and his mother-in-law, who lived on his property, was allowed to continue living there under the same conditions as she was while he was living.5,6 (see also .)
      The transcript of the Will read:
In the Name of AMEN, I Casper Seibt of Towamencin Township in the County of Philadelphia, in the Province of Pennsylvania yeoman, Am weak in Body but of perfect sound mind, understanding and memory Thanks be to God, Do this Eighth day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy three make and ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner following.
