  • Notes 
    • Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage (Vol XIII, No. 2, Apr.1990, Jane
      Evan Best) "On March 22, 1612, Hans Graf of Baretswil, east of Lake
      Zurich, Switzerland, married Elsbeth Peter of Aaruti, in parish of
      Fischenthal. They had six children by 1625. The father and two of the
      children were not included in the 1634 census (Census of Baretswil,
      1634-1723, Canton Zurich Archives, Zurich, Switzerland), and may have
      died in the 1629 plague. When the Anabaptists in the canton of
      Zurich were required to register in 1633, Elsbeth Peter was a
      forty-five year old widow who had been an Anabaptist for seven years.
      She lived with her four surviving children, aged ten to nineteen. In
      1634 they lived in one of the five households in Betschwyl, now
      Bettswil, where the plague had struck particularly hard" A. Sierszyn,
      "Unser Baretswil, Aus der Geschichte seiner Fluren, Hoffe and Dorfer",
      (Baretseil, Zurich: 1983) p. 203, translated by Raymond T. Stoe. The
      first Bettswiler family of record is the Graf family in 1469. At
      least three families of this clan lived in the three Bettswil houses
      in 1541.
