  • Notes 
    • Changed their crest to show a black and white animal named Steinbock (rock goat). The famous Gerber cheese comes from this line.-Marianne Gerber 28 October 2001 email
      Purchased Oberer Habbach (Hapbach) after 1801. The descendents were no longer part of the Mennonite church, but became members of the State Reformed Church.
    • According to Peter Gerber: He was christened “Niklaus”. That name is usually abreviated to “Klaus” and in the language of the people Klaus transforms to “Glais” (as "Robert" to "Dick" in English).
