Robert, Here we go again - another non-citizen. How often do you run into non-citizens? I wonder how many non citizens there were in Graben vs Bürgers? I have been told that a Bürger who belonged to the "union" had certain rights and privilages. If they moved to another community, which was rare, the new community took care or watched over them. If they ran into trouble they were sent back to their original place of residence and their original church took responsibility for them. I was also told only 3% of people moved from one community to another. Kent

Translation by Robert Seal:
Died on the 27th of May  at night after 10:00 pm and buried on the 29th [of May 1758] Anna, the surviving widow of the late Georg Obermäyer, former "Beÿsi(t)zer" and weaver at Blankenloch. Age: 74 years.
My comment: "Beÿsi(t)zer" = Beisitzer. Ernest Thode, German-English Genealogical Dictionary, defines "Beisitzer" as: "junior lawyer; juryman; inhabitant without land (e.g. a son in the parental household) without citizenship rights or duties". Then I penciled-in in my personal copy of Thode in the margin next to this word: council member. Google Translate and DeepL translate this word as: assessor. So you have a variety of options to chose from. Hopefully if you find other records for Georg Obermaÿer you will be able to narrow this down.
Location: Blankenloch is approximately 6 miles south of Graben and approximately 3 miles north of Hagsfeld. All of Maria Catharina's siblings were born in Blankenloch. Maria Katharina's father died in Blankenlock and her mother Ann Bane died in Graben, probably living with Maria Katharina after the death of Ann Bane's husband. Johann Georg Obermeyer died in 1743 and his wife Ann Bane died in Graben in 1758. It must be noted that Graben and Spöck are often confused. The death record for Ann Bane is from Graben.
|Salome Nichter marriage 26 Jan 1775 film 102078348 page 731|
Because of all the flourishes the handwriting was difficult to read but here is the translation you requested:
[Were married] on the 26th of January , George Michael Klein, the local non-citizen resident, the surviving legitimately-conceived unmarried son of the late Johann Michael Klein, former inhabitant at Fürfeld, with the late Christina, née Zieglerin, and Salome Nüchterin, the surviving legitimately-conceived unmarried daughter of the late Thomas Nüchtern, former non-citizen resident here, with Catharina, née Obermaÿerin.
My comment: Both the groom and the bride's father are identified as: Hintersass(e). Ernest Thode, German-English Genealogical Dictionary defines "Hintersass(e)" as: "non-citizen resident (with own household, no land, no major livestock, but no rights or obligations of citizen)".
Graben Pastor J. J. Ritter performed the marriage.

[Died in Graben] on the 10th of January 1794 at 8:00 pm and buried on the 12th of the same month Maria Catharina Obermeierin, whose husband was Thomas Nüchtern, former non-citizen resident, [her] age 74 years, 11 months, 2 days.
My comment: Based on age at death, Maria Catharina's calculated birth date is: on or close to 8/9 Feb 1719. (Robert's calculation was perfect, see above. FS has her born in Spöck, without proof.)
