I think I have finally tied my family to the Muehleberg, Berg, Switzerland area rather than Wilderswil where I had previously been focusing.
This family includes
Johannes Balmer and Katherina von Gunter, parents of Johann David Balmer (b. 13 July 1788).Johann David married Barbara Ingold in 1819 and had the following children:
Johann Peter (1819) Johann David (1821) Jean Jonas (1823) Friedrich (1825) Anna Maria (1830) Samuel (1833) Ferdinand (1838)
I have spouses' names for all of the above, but nothing more.
Any more information on this family would be of great interest.As far as I can tell, Johann David (my ancestor) was the only one of this generation to come to America, but perhaps others on this board may be tied in through later immigrant descendants.
