Two of my great-grandparents were (based on the information I have):
George Sebastian HÜG (born 1826, St. Gallen, Switzerland; died 8 June 1882 in Sydney, Australia)
who on 7 January 1857, in Sydney, married
Josephine MOESCH (MOSCH on her m/c) (b. 1835 Laufernburg, Aargau, Switzerland; d. 9 Nov 1908 in Sydney)
Their daughter Josephine HÜG (b. 1859 in Sydney; d. 1888 Sydney) on 4 July 1877 in Sydney married John Ulrich VONWILLER (b. 1846 St. Gallen, Switzerland; d. 25 August 1928 in Chatswood, Sydney, Australia).
(They were the parents of Oscar Ulrich VONWILLER the noted physicist.)
From the NSW BDM website, John Ulrich VONWILLER's parents were John U. VONWILLER and Maria M. VONWILLER (née ??).
there is a Johann Ulrich VONWILLER (1827-1892) married to Maria Ursula (née) BÄCHTLER (b. 1830; d. ?) with children: Maria Barbara VONWILLER (b. 1856) Otto Wilhelm VONWILLER (1858-1907) Emma Katharina VONWILLER (b. 1860) Karl Emil VONWILLER (1865-1925) Bertha Dorothea VONWILLER (b. 1872)
can anyone please advise if Johann (1827) and Maria (1830) are the parents of "my" John Ulrich VONWILLER (1846)?
This would have made John born ten years before the birth of their next child (1856), and Maria (1830) would have been only 16 when John (1846) was born.Perhaps Johann (1827) han been previously married and John's (1846) d/c reflects his step-mother???
Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.
