She married 2) Johann Friedrich Kuenzel (1737-1802), with whom she came to NC in 1770. Her two Lachenauer sons were probably in the same party.

Gottliebe died in childbirth in April, 1773, apparently losing her baby as well. In 1777, following the death of Anton Kastner's second wife, Maria Spach, her parents Adam and Elisabeth Spach took two children into their care, named in the Moravian diaries as Maria Gottliebe and Christina Kastner, and Friedrich Kuenzel and his wife took the son Heinrich Gottlieb Kastner.
