Catherine Stombach was probably related to Peterman’s wife, Anne Maria Altland. Two of Anne Maria’s sisters married Stombach brothers. Peterman created a Certificate of Birth and Baptism for Daniel Stombach, a Taufschein for Lucyana Stombach and a drawing for Catharina’s sister, Elizabeth Stombach.
