When Maria Barbara Fischer was born on May 18, 1730, in Schweigern, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, her father, Georg Ulrich Fischer, was 32, and her mother, Anna Maria Boger, was 32.

She married Adam Radabaugh on June 9, 1754, in Tulpehocken, Pennsylvania.  Adam and Barbara had land in Berks County, Pennsylvania that in 1786, after they had moved to Hampshire County, Virginia, they wished to sell.  Adam Sr and Barbara settled two mountain ridges and one creek on the South Fork of the South Branch, 8 to 10 miles south of Moorefield and 7 or 8 miles east of Petersburg.  Note:  Virginia’s Hampshire County was divided in 1786, the southern half, where the Radabaugh’s lived, became Hardy County.

Through the years, about 1758 to 1772, Adam and Barbara had eight known children.  They were mentioned in Adam’s will as a daughter who married a Carshner and a daughter Barbara; Mary who married a Mawyers/Moyers; a daughter who married Higher/Hyer who had children Mary, Peter and Christian Hyer, and sons Henry, Peter, Martin, George and Adam.

Barbara died pre-1802, as she is not mentioned in her husband’s will.
