This is Paul Schaer or Pablo Andres Schaer... A bunch of Schaer Brothers emigrated from Gongiswill and/or Thunstetten, Canton Bern to Argentina in between 1856 and 1858 (Johan or Hans, Felix, Andreas, Ulrich) Some of them traveled with kids, like Andreas and Felix who's son was called Jakob) Their father Johan / Hans stayed in Switzerland with some other siblings... in my family there is not information about those left behind. Please find enclosed an interesting document about that...
In the case of Andreas, when his wife past away he married again with a widow called Magdalena Schuerch or Schurich, born in Roggwill, Canton Bern. Magdalena and her first husband Samuel Hegi, married in Switzerland in 1857 and then emigrated to Argentina where they had 10 kids. Magdalena and Andres had 2 chidren, Maria and Juan Andres, who 20 years later married Luiisa Pastells, a daughter of his half sister Luisa Hegi-Schuerch (and grand daughter of Magdalena and Samuel Hegi)
