Hi all -- Traditionally on my birthday (today) I check through all my dead ends looking for new ancestors to include.My great grandmother was Sophia Oeschger, born 9 Feb 1843 in Hornussen, Kt. Aargau, to Xaver Oeschger and Josepha Herzog.Xaver Oeschger (my notes say) was born in Marin, Kt. Neuchatel 19 Oct 1814, but I wonder whether that is correct.My notes also say that his parents were Christian Oeschger and Maier Waldburga, born in "Switzerland," and Christian was son of Mathias Oeschger and Briggitta Mezger, also just born in "Switzerland."Christian was supposed born 5 Mar 1793 and died 19 Jan 1871.Does anybody have any more specific information on this branch of the Oeschgers?
Also: Josepha Herzog, wife of Xaver, was born in Hornussen, probably around 1818, but I have no further info on her or any ancestors of hers.Anybody researching the Herzogs of Hornussen?
