Searching for any info on Jakob Kobler probably born about 1775-80 in Sangkt Gallen Canton, Switzerland.I foundJakob in 1805 at Hard (parrish) in theCatholic Church records: KIRCHEN BUCH 1619-1926 -Montlingen.It’s onmicro film through LDS FHC.
Jakobis the first namedKobler in the Family Buch forHard sohe wasn’t born there.Family legend is that the family home there was a popular hunting lodge,orginally built foraforeign nobleman but purchasedand operated by Jakob and the family.
If my reading of the tinyGerman script is correct--
Jakob Kobler& Ana. Maria Kirisin (?) of Hard, Montlingen, Sankt Gallen, Switzerland, had three children. The eldest: Josef b.Mat 21, 1805, at Hard, m.1839 toM.A. (Maria Anna L...........?)b. 1815. They had4 children. Theeldest:Ferdinandb.Jan 27,1844 at Hard (my gr.gr.father, John Ferdinand Kobler)llstedas‘1870 emmigrated to Amerika’ John married Mary JacobeaEbnother alsoSwissinUSA.
I'd like to connect with anyone who has information on our Jakob and Ana. Maria.
