Magdelana Rima was born about 1786 probably
at East Schuyler, New York.
The first real record we have of her existence is her sponsorship in the
who was born in
1802 at Schuyler. The sponsors were Theobald Hiller (possibly cousin) and
Magdelena Rima. Since most all of John Rima's children stood up as sponsors
with their spouse to be just months before their marriages I assumed incorrectly
that Magdelena may have married Mr. Hiller. Further research indicates that
his wife's name was Catherine.
In order to be a sponsor, I guess that she would have to be an adult, or
close. If she was a sponsor in 1802, she would have to be at least 16 to
18 years old. This would put heer date of birth in the mid 1780s or earlier
which is exactly as we have it. She undoubtedly married
Mr. Henry Lints (Lince)
son of Jacob Lints by his first wife Catherine. The records for the German
Flatts Reformed Church between 1795 and 1811 are missing and those of course
are the years that would spell this whole thing out. I am sur that further
research will find proof.
I will assume resonably that Henry and Magdelana were married about 1803
at or near Schuyler, New York. They apparently made a move to Rome, New York
before 1810 with many other family and friends.
It appears that Lana may have died in the 1830s or the 1840s. Her husband
died on February 7, 1859 aged 73 years. He was born March 29, 1785 at Schuyler,
New York. He is buried at Lorena Rd. Cemetery, Rome, New York. There is a
footstone at his grave that has "L.L." which may be Lana Lince, his wife.
