3. Simon Dreisbach, Jr. "was a farmer and miller in Lehigh township, and at the outbreak of the Revolution was a member of the Provincial Convention. He was a member of the Assembly from 1776 to 1780, and on Oct. 20, 1782, became a member of the Council of Censors. After the war he served several terms in the Assembly and was a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1790." (3. History) He married Maria Dorothea Theis (Does, Toss, Taes) and together they had 11 children. Simon died Dec. 17, 1806 and Maria Dorthea died July 8, 1773. They are also buried at Zion Stone Church, Kreidersville,Pennsylvania. Our family has a line of descent through his son John Dreisbach, born August 21, 1752, whom some references say saw service in the American Revolution. Simon and John provide yet another line of descent to Beatrice Graver Smith.
Both Wilson Graver and Jennie Ellen (Genevieve) Lauer descended from Johann Simon Dreisbach and Maria Katharina Keller through different lines.
