Andreas ? Buechler

b.? in. Bruderndorf, lower Austria, Austria m. October 11, 1782 in. Hollabrunn, lower Austria, Austria. Theresia ? Zehetner b. May 1, 1755 in. Simonsfeld, lower Austria, Austria.

iv. Gertraud ? Buechler b. March 8, , 1791
v. Martin ? Buechler b. October 14, 1793

I am not certain that the above Andreas and Martin Buechler are ancestors of Martin Beekler. The year that Martin Buechler was born makes it very probable. If these are ancestors of Martin Beekler I have knowledge of Theresia Zehetner's ancestors, and the decendents of Katharina Buechler. Katharina changed her name to Bichler.
