Thanks to the succesful cooperation with Petra Kemmler there is the final confirmation that Johann Jakob Kemmler, born on Oct 27, 1842 in Zollikon, Switzerland, was the son of Johann Georg Kemmler, who was born April 15, 1817 in Nehren and emigrated after 1831 to Switzerland.
The father of Johann Georg Kemmler, Christian Kemmler stemmed originally from Maehringen and was the founder of the Kemmler branch in Nehren after his marriage with Barbara Fauser from Nehren.
First contacts to the descendants of Johann Jakob Kemmler were established already in 2003, however there was still the final evidence missing for the relationship of Johann Jakob and Johann Georg Kemmler.
On the provided family record of the city of Zollikon it is recorded that Johann Georg Kemmler had three more children who reached the marriage age:
- Karolina Kemmler, born May 10, 1846 married to Heinrich Breuler from Zumikon
- Bertha Kemmler, born Feb 10, 1848 married to Eleonor Hardmeier from Zumikon
- Sophia Kemmler, born May 12, 1853 married to mit Emil Reutlinger from Hegnau
At this point I wanted to express my special thanks to Petra Kemmler for her great support.
