Translation Help - Merz or Mertz? and Wife's maiden name and her father's name and info
This is a record from 1726 in the Eichen, Hessen area for Johann Andreas Mertz or Merz (I see a "t" cross in there.) legitimate son of Johann Wilhelm Mertz/Merz and Johanna Maria ????? of master Lorenz (again the "t") Bendor/Standor, citizen and huffschmitts and then the whole next line with maybe a town where they are from at the end. Any insight and help is most appreciated. Thank you!
