  • Notes 
    • “Mennonite family Schrag from Giesing (Community Au) six family members together have 1000 Gulden as John Schrag counted out for the tribunal. The family is from the Bavarian Rhine District (Palatinate) with the following persons: Jakob, 84 years old previously farmed several estates, now in Giesing supported by his children. Children: Magdalena, servant with farmer Haslinger in Giesing; Katharina at home with her father; Joseph, hired hand in Kloster Scheyern; Johann, works as brandywine maker; Daniel, hired hand with farmer Glaser in Freimann. A son of Jakob Schrag of the first marriage with the name Jakob Muller [called a step-son in the first application] emigrated to America 13 years ago and settled in ‘Wilmont.’ He left behind a child by Barbara W., hired girl in Weissenfels by Pardorf, Munich, Katharina Muller, who is now 13 years old and is now in the care of the Mennonite Holly at Linden, District of Ebersberg. The Schrag family wish to take this child with them to America. Mother and guardian are agreed. The sons of Schrag performed their military duty. No other hindrance. The family, for three years in Giesling, complains that they are being sent around from one authority to the other. (2 Dec 1837)

      They farmed at Kösching, a suburb of Ingolstadt, adjacent to Hellmannsberg, where the Sutters leased an estate in 1811.

      Christian died near Munich in 1831. His parents, brothers, and sisters went to Canada in 1837. [2]
