  • Notes 
    • Marriage with Jean Sommer :
      There is persecution and persecution ... In the seventeenth century, the persecution of the Anabaptists took proven forms, which led them to hide for good, even to renounce their religion and to dissolve in the majority Lutheranism. The Kommer family, for example, had on their arrival in France, a propensity to ally with the Anabaptist family Sommer, but at the same time, she makes classical marriages at Ban de la Roche. So there have been a number of families who have presented clues of possible Anabaptism but have become part of the overall landscape. As for the families who lived their Mennonite faith without concessions, we did not risk identifying them: they refused to baptize their children, so that their civil status is inaccessible since the parish registers are the basis.
      Marriage with Benoit Hertzog
      Waldersbach, BMS, 1691-1734, 3E 513/1, right page 87/152 The marriage of Benoit Hertzog, son of the late Benoit Jean Hertzog of the village of Schorheim (?) To the canton of Berne in Switzerland and Catherine Commer (spelling according to the 'act of marriage') also native of Switzerland and widow of the late Jean Sommer, when he lived as a shepherd in Waldersbach, was blessed in the church of the said place.
