Schnebli, Elsbeth 1 2a 3a

Birth Name Schnebli, Elsbeth
Gender female


The path from Johannes (IV) Schnebli (b 1445) to Elsbeth Schnebli (b 1593) is seemingly the weakest part of the chain from Rudolfus von Lunkhofen to me (Mike Ressler). The varying genealogies from JS to RvL all agree, except for one skipped generation in one source. The chain from ES to me also seems reliable.

There are at least two plausible chains from JS to ES. The chain that seems to me more reasonable in terms of the ages of the fathers goes from Johannes IV (1445) to Hans (1474), to Jacob (1502), to Johannes Jacob (1530), to Jacob (1560), to Elsbeth (1593). This is the path proposed by http://; however, they cite no sources. The Snively-Snavely book specifically states there is a dead end at Jacob's (1502) children. The pathway in the book is from Johannes IV (1445) to Thomann (1485), to Hans (1510), to Jacob (1550), to Elsbeth (1593). The IDs given are XI, XI-6, XI-61, XI-612, and XI-6127. It seems that the former would be preferable since the generations are about 30 years apart, rather than the latter where the generations are more like 40 years apart with one exception; however, it is what is in the book, and so is what I follow here.


The 1621 church record at Hirzel provides proof of the name of the mother of Heinrich Weber (WB2). An Elsbeth Schnebli (SN6127) was baptized May 1, 1593, at Affoltern, Zurich, the daughter of Jacob Schnebli. A sister, Margaret, (SN6122) baptized July 12, 1578, may have been the first wife of Oswald Landis.

Other now familiar Lancaster County names are found in the County of Obfeldon says Mr. Schnebeli, a prominent and respected Swiss historian. At the beginning of the 18th century several Obfeldon residents moved to Pennsylvania. He concludes by saying that best authority on these subjects is Dr. Weber, the High Librarian of Canton Zurich, Switzerland.


Possibly born on 1592-01-05.
