Re: New Ehrsam Information dating to 1615

In Reply to: New Ehrsam Information dating to 1615 by Anne of 28

My paternal grandmother was Caroline Ehrsam, born in Bannwyl, Switzerland March 2, 1861 to Jakob and Marguerite(nee Kappler). They had moved earlier from Zurich to Bannwyl where he worked in a carpet mill as a weaver.
Around 1886, they immigrated to Leavenworth,Kansas where he went into the carpet repair business. He died in 1891,and his widow lived until about 1927. I have Jakob's parents as Johannes,b.about 1815, and Anna E.Maegli,b.about 1818. I didn't record the sources for all this so it may not be correct.I do have copies of Carline's baptism and of her death certificate and her parent's death certificates. I'd appreciate any new information about this branch of the Ehrsams.
