  • Birth: ABT 1670 in Zurich, Gebieth, Switzerland
  • Note: Per Jones: aus der Schweitz von Balcken Zurcher Gebieth. A christening date of 7 Feb 1669 in Illnau, Zurich is given in a tree at Ancestry.com: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/26014048/person/1762414086 2 3

  • Note: #411 4
  • Event: Milit-Beg 1711

  • Event: DNA test 2009
  • Note: DNA tests of two descendants of son Henrich now prove that the haplogroup for this line is R1b1b2a1b4c, considered to be the Alpine Celt motif, or signature. Autosomal DNA also proves the relatedness of son, Johann W. 6 7
  • Event: Euro-Origin 6661 Rieschweiler, Pfalz, Germany
  • Note:
    Per Jones: "There was a Johann Jacob Kuhn aus der Schweitz von Balcken Zurcher Gebieth who, as he was called a cowherd, a swineherd, and a daylabourer, was found in several Chbks. in the Pfalz. This Johann Jacob Kuhn and wife Maria Elisabetha had ch. bpt. at several villages where other 1709ers were found: 1) Johann Wilhelm, bpt. 27 Nov 1695 at 6661 Rieschweiler; 2) Johann Jacob, bpt. 12 July 1697 a 6661 Rieschweiler; 3) Hans Simon, bpt. 1 April 1703 at 6653 Webenheim; and 4) Anna Gertraud, bpt. Jan 1706 at Walsheim a/Blies..."

    Note: Hans Jacob Kun, his wife, and 5 ch. were in the 6th party of Palatines in Holland in 1709 (Rotterdam Lists). Since the fifth child is not accounted for above, see the other finding below:

    Per Jones: "6349 Driedorf perhaps had as many 1709er emigrants as any village in Germany. In the registers of this village (9km. s.w. of Herborn; Chbks. begin 1671), "A son" (Joh. Henrich? - HJ) was bpt. 10 Jan 1706 to Johann Jacob Kuntz, rider in Driesdorf, and his wife Anna - sp.: Joh. Henrich Reis ..., Philipp Schroder here, Anna Maria - w/o Hans Henrich Petri here, and Ann Ursell - d/o Henrich Bezen here.

    "More proof still is needed to firm up this connective (HJ)."

    Notice that I have found several persons with the name Hans, Johann, Jacob Kuhn in Zurich who would clearly fit as a relative, but this is not yet confirmed, of course.
