Last Edited=9 May 2004
Anna Maria Emmitt was born circa 1734.
Anna was baptized on 28 July 1734 at New Goshenhoppen Church in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania .1
She was the daughter of Johann Philip Emmert and Maria Catharina Kamp.2
Anna married Johann Andreas Mühlschlägel, son of Hans Henrich Mühlschlägel and Maria Apolonia Hamman, circa 1752 at New Goshenhoppen Church in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania . He was about 22 years old and she was about 18.3,4
He followed German naming customs and was known as Andreas and Andrew.
Grace Kelso Garner in Earliest Settlers of Western Frederick-Eastern Hampshire Counties gives her reasoning behind an estimated marriage date of 1754 but their son, George, was baptized in 1753. Garner did not know his birthdate. I have revised Andrew and Mary's marriage to be circa 1752.5
Anna and Johann Andreas had 8 children. These children are Georg Henrich, Anna Christina, Maria Catharine, Anna Barbara, Anna Maria, Johann Jacob, Anna Margretha and Hanna.6
In 1767, Andrew and Mary were taxed on 70 acres, 2 horses, two cows, and three sheep in Berks County, Pennsylvania.7
They are believed to have lived between 1768 and 1774 in Emmitsburg, Frederick County, Maryland.8
Andrew and Mary purchased land 7 November 1774 Hampshire County, Virginia. Here is part of the deed: "THIS INDENTURE, made the seventh day of November in the year of Our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and seventy four BETWEEN Jonathan PUGH of the County of Hampshire of the one part and Andreas Milslagle of the said County." This deed was for a tract of 106 acres and granted to Evan Pugh, Jr. by deed under the hand of Right Hon. Thomas Lord Fairfax and by Evan Jr. conveyed to Jonathan PUGH in February 1764.1
She and Andrew were 1782 taxed for 7 white souls on the list of in Hampshire Co, on the list of Levi Poston.9
She and Andrew were 1784 taxed for 6 white souls in Hampshire Co, on the list of Elias Poston.9
The 1790 census records for Hampshire Co have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found.
The 1800 census records for Hampshire Co have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found.
Andrew and Mary purchased additional land 20 November 1809 Hampshire Co.10,11
Andrew was enumerated on the 1810 census for Hampshire Co as Andrew Milslagle, aged over 45 years old. Based on ages, it is possible that Mary was also living in the household aged over 45 years old.12

Anna died between 1813 and 1820 in Hampshire Co. Mary and Andrew lived with their son, Jacob, and his wife, Elizabeth, until their deaths.9
She and Andrew were buried in the Millslagle burying place in Hampshire Co. According to Darrell Cooper, the family cemetery is located on north of what is now Highway 50 on 50/22 road, west of Capon Bridge, Hampshire County, West Virginia.9
