Marriage of Johannes and Ursula

Marriage of Johannes and Ursula

This one is easily the messiest of the bunch! It's also one the most interesting because it establishes the link between Ötisheim and Dußlingen. In fact, the marriage was recorded in both churches because it was common practice for the pastors to record marriages of their town's native sons and daughters that occurred in other parishes. The Dußlingen entry is undated but is sometime after August 1703, and it states that Hans Breÿel, weaver, son of Conrad Breÿel married Ursula, daughter of Hans Jacob Ruop in Öthisheim (sic).

The marriage took place less than a month after the accidental death of Johannes's father Conrad.
