Johannes Mathias Britzius:
From "The Britzius Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens 2013:
Johannes and Elisabeth Katharina had a son, Johannes Mathias Britzius (1700 Achtelsbach, Pfalz – 1766 Bisterschied, Pfalz). This Britzius went by the name of Mathias. He married Maria Elisabetha Reissdorf (1701 Bisterschied, Pfalz – 1766 Bisterschied, Pfalz). Mathias, besides being a farmer, worked as a decorative gardener and a porter at the Castle Sötern. Early church records of this area are kept in archives in Speyer, Germany. These records are very interesting because as well as giving genealogical information, they also tell about occupations people have such as Matthias being a gardener at the castle.
Maria Elisabetha Reissdorf:
In his record, Bill Moyer has a question mark after the last name. No one else gives a last name.
