This web page is dedicated to our ancestors, who have impacted our lives in so many ways. As we learn about them and share their stories they become more than names on a piece of paper. They are real people with whom we now feel a connection.
According to the mertzgenealogy.com I have some incorrect information concerning David Mertz brothers. I had Johannes and Johan Henry being brothers of David and that is in error. They were evidently part of other Mertz families. In 1728 a will of Peter Mertz, David's father, lists David's mother as Anna Barbara Zimmermann daughter of Benedict Zimmermann. David's siblings were listed as Anna Margaretha married to Abraham Vautrin, Hans Jacob, Anna Barbara married to Ulrich Burckhalter and Johann Peter. Peter the father remarried Susanna Braconnier and had the following children, Anna Catharina, Hans Nickel, Johann, Anna Magadalena.
