  • Notes 
    • A relative, Niklaus Gerber (probably his half-brother who lived at Untern Hapbach), the farmer at Obern Hapbach, was ordered to raise Christian and Michael after their father's death.



      Farmer at Hinterer Baeregg. Co-managed Giebel before his father's death.

      According to documents obtained from family in Switzerlland, he is probably the father mentioned in the Gerber Book of Michael Gerber of Hapbach who immigrated to Ohio (USA) and who became the ancestor of 650 descendents.

      It is possible that they are referring to the Mennonite deacon, Michael Gerber. However, his birth and death dates are a little off. Deacon Michael emigrated from Chaluet in the Bernese Jura, likely due to fleeing from religious persecution. The spouse names are not the same, either.
