Washburn, p. 3: Shortly after their marriage in 1469, Johannes and Verena Schnely purchased property in Affoltern am Albis, a village about 7 miles southwest of the city of Zürich and 5 miles west of Thalwil, where the Schnelys had lived for some years, perhaps as long as 50 years. Their new home was only about 3 miles from the ancestral von Lunkhofen castle. As part of the marriage dower Johannes came into possession of the Ober Mühle (Upper Mill) in Affoltern, from which he made a living for his family. This mill may have been located along the little stream that still flows through Affoltern. Its operation supported many generations of Schnelys-Schneebelis, and was still in the family in 1878.
