      Could not handle money and had gone bankrupt. He left Canton Berne and married a catholic woman. Therefore, he could not inherit under Berne law. - Marianne Gerber, October 28, 2001

      He had taken a loan against his inheritance because he became bankrupt. He lived for a time in Ufhusen, Luzern.
