ancestors of Johanna
her father, the KAISER ascendancy of Johanna goes back - at this stage
of our findings - to:
Kaiser and his wife Anna Hildebrand, lived in Ammansegg
(SO) and were born at the end of the 1500 years (their 8 children found
were born between 1613 and 1635. The family takes the origin of Ammansegg.
believe that the family came from the bernese village of Leuzingen
during the Reformation, to remain catholics. Ursus arrived in Ammannsegg
with his father, perhaps also his grand father.
second son of Ursus and Anna moved and is the base of the Kaiser branch
originating from Biberist (SO), while their great grandson Stefan and
Maria Affolter are the base of the Kaiser from Lohn (SO) of which Johanna
is a descendant.
other descendants of Ursus kept the Ammansegg origin.
her mother, the MOSER line was not researched further back than her
great-great grandfather Christian, born around 1825-1830.
her mother, the JEGERLEHNER line was researched back to Abraham around
1750. One of his grandson, David and his wife Magdalena born Strahm,
to the USA around 1851/1852. They first settled in Paint Township,
Fayette Co., Pennsylvania, then around 1860 in Holmes Co., Ohio
south of Mt Eaton church).
son Christian settled in Clay
Indiana where he buys 104 acres of land. The farm is transmitted from
father to son and is actually
owned and operated by Alan Yegerlehner, his wife Mary and their daughter
Kate under the name "Swiss Connection" (see the link below).
are in contact with a few descendants of David Jegerlehner in the USA
(where the surname changed to Yegerlehner, Yagerlehner,
Yager-lehner, Yagerline et Yeagerline).
