    Notes 
    • Steinsoultz is near the corner which connects France, Switzerland, and Germany. This is the Upper Rhine region (that is, southern Rhine, away from the ocean), in the Alsace.

      Family history has him emigrating from Alsace in 1813. This is possible, but I’ve found one concrete immigration record in two places.

      According to a post on Ancestry.com that refers to Schrader-Muggenthaler, a passport was issued on Dec. 21, 1839 to Pierre Bisantz, a 40 year old teacher from Steinsoulz, for travel from Colmar to New York. Note that he may have traveled back and forth.

      Probably he and his wife both died in the cholera epidemic in the summer of 1849.
