Jakob Kobler in Hard, Sankt Gallen, Switzerland

Searching for any info on Jakob Kobler probably born about 1775-80 in Sangkt Gallen Canton, Switzerland. I found Jakob in 1805 at Hard (parrish) in the Catholic Church records:
KIRCHEN BUCH 1619-1926 -Montlingen. It’s on micro film through LDS FHC.

Jakob is the first named Kobler in the Family Buch for Hard so he wasn’t born there. Family legend is that the family home there was a popular hunting lodge, orginally built for a foreign nobleman but purchased and operated by Jakob and the family.

If my reading of the tiny German script is correct--

Jakob Kobler & Ana. Maria Kirisin (?) of Hard, Montlingen, Sankt Gallen, Switzerland, had three children.
The eldest: Josef b.Mat 21, 1805, at Hard, m.1839 to M.A. (Maria Anna L...........?)b. 1815.
They had 4 children.
The eldest: Ferdinand b.Jan 27,1844 at Hard (my gr.gr.father, John Ferdinand Kobler) llsted as ‘1870 emmigrated to Amerika’ John married Mary Jacobea Ebnother also Swiss in USA.

I'd like to connect with anyone who has information on our Jakob and Ana. Maria.
