Zerbe, Anna Barbara

Trying to prove the parents of Anna Barbara Zerbe born circa 1720 who married Johan Georg Meyer 4 April 1738 in Tulpehocken region in PA. They were possibly Johan Martin Zerbe and Anna Elisabeth Jungel. Anna Elisabeth seems awfully old to have a child in 1720, since she was born in 1674 and would have been 46 years old.
