  • Notes 
    • This couple farmed on the Freudenbergerhof estate near Zweibrücken. The family moved to Bavaria where Daniel was born in 1813. When the family applied for permission to emigrate, Jacob and daughter Catherine were living at Giesing, Munich.

      In 1837, Daniel was at Freimann and father Jacob and daughters Magdalena and Catherine were at Giesing.

      All of the family except wife Magdalena emigrated to Canada.
      —————————————
      The Schrag family lived on different farms as tenants in Bavaria. The last place was in Giesing / Munich 1837.
      In the state archive in Munich I found under Fazikel RA 1730 following entry:
      From here, the familie applied for emigration to Upper Canada. Six family members filed for emigration in March 1837. Their fortune was 1000 Guldiers. The family came from the “Bavaria Rhine circel“ also Palatinate. [4, 7, 12, 13, 14]
