  • Notes 
    • It has been passed down over the years from Ernst that Johann died at an early age. It was said he died while working "in the field". However, there is a letter from "Sue" to Erma stating that Hans married a Martha and had seven children.

      Also, a chart from the Gerber reunion in 2009 shows he lived at Bottigen. Whether that was where he grew up or where he lived as an adult is unknown. The chart also shows he was a dairy farmer.

      Documents from the 1993 reunion indicated Hans had 7 daughters.
