All I have for Baltasar Erker is that he was born about 1779 and died 1843 Krasna, Bessarabia (now part of Ukraine). I don't have any info about his parents. He was likely one of the first settlers of Krasna. So he was born elsewhere. Is of German descent. He was married first to Anna Maria, had 1 child Kunigunda born 1816; then to Anna Maria Louisa Damm whom he had 8 children. 1Louisa born 1828; 2Karl born 1831; 3Vincent born 1833; 4&5 Andreas and Ignatius born 1835; 6 Philipp born1838; 7Friedrich born 1840; and 8Adam born 1842.
