Kent Gardiner:
Simon Suss, not sure what is written under his death date
Margaretha Magdalena Krauss
1. Wilhelm Friedrich
2. Karl Simon
Translation by Robert Seal:  
You did very well with your interpretation of the names in this family register. You know, however, that I am a stickler for transcribing the names exactly as they appear in the record, so I would transcribe the parents' surnames as: Simon Süß and Maria Magdalena Krauß. This is a minor point about the ß and of course if you prefer "ss" that is fine; but the umlaut on the "u" in "Süß" is not optional as it affects the pronunciation of the name.
Note: I believe the word written under Simon's death date is: verunglückt = accident(al); casualty.
