  • Notes 
    • According to vol. 9, «i»MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS«/i», p. 37 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds; 1993), the Krider's church records have Michael's and his parents' surname spelled as "Oertter." Further, the records show a birthdate of 5 Mar 1775, rather than 7 Mar.

      According to vol. 9, «i»MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS«/i», «i»Id«/i», p. 48, the Krider's church records show that "Michael and Marcreta Orter" had a daughter "Scharlotha, " b. 13 Sep 1814, bp. 25 Dec 1814. But, the same records show: "Epharim, son of Michael and Margaretha Erter, b. 26 Dec. 1812, bp. 11 Sept. 1813." «i»Id«/i», p. 20.

      Michael is mentioned in his father's will probated in 1813. Frederick County Will Book, RB 1:359-361.
