  • Notes 
    • Unzicker, originally Hunzicker= from Hunzicken, Canton Bern. The initial H was probably lost during a stay in France where an H is not pronounced at the beginning of a word.














      Was Elizabeth a sister to Jacob (d. 1847) who married Barbara Eyer?
      See Dec 1991 IMH , p.75 for note on possible descendants.

      More likely, Elizabeth could have been a sister to Daniel b. 1798 who married Magdalena Kahn.} [7, 8, 9]
