Hans Michel Utzinger: Birth: 13 MAY 1703.
Margaretha Elizabetha Utzinger: Birth: 12 MAR 1703/04.
Note: Came to the Pfalz in about 1690. he probably came through Elsass and down the left bank of the Rhine. He settled as a farmer in Labach, in the county Zweibrucken. At that time Labach was completely deserted. The church, in which Johannes threshed his grain, was still in ruins from the Thirty-Year War.
There are no documents giving the details of his journey, or telling whether he travelled with other Swiss.
After his marriage to Eva Catharina Winter on 19 July 1694, he visited Switzerland once again. This is shown by the existence of a baptismal certificate issued in Botzberg on 15 February 1702 by the reformed pastor Brandolph Wassmer. He probably settled his affairs in Switzerland, and took his inheritance back with him, as many Swiss did at this time.
It has been impossible to find out where Johannes and his wife died, because there was once again a war in the Pfalz, and many people, including many Swiss immigrants, vanished without a trace.
