    Notes 

    • Elisabetha Kesselring was the mother of all of Hans Jacob’s children.

      Michael Renner, father of Hans Jacob’s first wife Eva, was the Schultheiss of Assenheim from 1623 to 1630 when the Court was discontinued because of the Thirty Years War.

      Hans Jacob and Eva bought two pieces of meadow from Paul Geringer for 6 Gulden, in 1657. Eva must have died in 1657 as we find Johann Jacob marrying Elisabetha Kesselring in 1658.

      Elisabetha was the daughter of Michael Kesselring, the Schultheiss of Ellerstadt. In 1669, they bought one Morgen Ackerfeld, (about 2/3 of an acre) from Georg Ott for 4 Gulden. In 1686, Schweitzer bought from Christian Spohne, a house, yard, barn with all appendages and a share from the good Duerkheim Hospital in Assenheim, for 300 Florin; 190 Florin was given to him by his wife, and the remainder of 110 Florin to be paid according to his ability to pay. The190 Florin was probably her inheritance on the death of her father.

      Known as Hans Jacob or Jacob. lived at Rheingoeheim, and was a lead-hand at Bad Durkheim prior to marriage. Appointed to the Court of Assenheim, 16 Apr 1668, replacing Lorenz Haman, in an appointment for life.

      Folklore has it that Eva died in 1657 in Germany along with a first born child. This would make sense as there where many lives lost, during childbirth, in this period of time.

      Elisabetha's father was the "Schultheiss" (Chief Magistrate) of the village of Ellerstadt.
