Lehman Families in the parish of Rothenbach in the Emmental of Canton Bern, Switzerland, 1648-1725

Hans Ruege Eggers (Rueggisegger), who, "for reasons of conscience," had immigrated from Nider Ey in Switzerland to the Swiss colony at New Bern, NC, wrote a letter on 07 Apr 1711 to a grown son in Switzerland. In it, he refers to a brother-in-law in Switzerland, Peter Leemann, and suggests that he also might immigrate to Carolina. Hans refers to two additional grown children so he probably was at least in his mid 40s. There are numerous Eys in Switzerland but only one known Neider Ey and it is in the parish of Rothenbach.In the Rothenbach Kirchebuch 5, we find the following marriages:

Hans Rueggsegger and Barbara Muller, m. 13 Oct 1689
Peter Lehmann and Anna Muller, m. 04 Mar 1691/92

The brother-in-law is, without a doubt, the Peter of Rothenbach Family 1, b. 18 Nov 1666.
