  • Note:

    Johannes was my ggg-grandfather.
    Christened Sept 17, 1786, Unterseen.

    Johannes was a shoemaker in Spielmatte (the area in Unterseen where they lived). They had been married just 9 years when the "hard times" of 1816-17 brought serious famine to the area, they also lived through another famine of 1845-55. Their son, Christian emigrated to Illinois about 1844 and his brother Jakob followed in 1851. (After 1850 thousands of Swiss people immigrated to the US. In 1850 there were 1361 people living in Unterseen.)
    Children all born in Unterseen.

    His son, Christian moved to America in 1844, and son Jacob followed him in 1850. His other children seem to have died in Unterseen, except for Johannes Jr. I could not find a death record for him. Johannes Sr. died in Switzerland in 1866.

    There is a cemetery called ?Friedhof? in Unterseen, but the Swiss do not keep old graves; they reuse them.
