64. John (Johannes) ZERBE, son of Johan Jacob ZERBE and Maria Catharina WINTER , was born in Oct 1719 in East Camp, Columbia, NY and died prior to 8 Nov 1776 in Tulpehocken Twp., Berks, PA, at age 57.
John's birth and baptismal dates are recorded in the registers of the Lutheran Church in New York City, probably the home church of the minister who baptized him. When married by the famous Rev. John Casper Stover in 1744, he entered their names as John Zerwe and Catarina Stup. It seems certain that it was this John Zerb who was an original signer in 1743 on the rolls of Christ Lutheran Church. The only other man by this name of appropriate age was John's uncle, John the Miller (i.e. John Japhet son of Martin). However, the latter seems unlikely since John the Miller had previously joined the Moravian movement, and Christ Lutheran Church had been formed primarily as a result of the Moravians having taken over the old Rieth's or Zion's Lutheran Church.
John married Caterina STUPP on 4 Jun 1944 in Tulpehocken Twp., Berks, PA.
