Searching for info on Franz N Niederberger b 1846 in Stans, Switzerland. Married Francisca Christen 7 Mar 1876 in Stans. Franz had a brother and a sister, fathers name Nicholas, mother was Theresa Fischer. He was in the army when his father died. His brother did not want the farm, Franz sold it and had a wine & beer store but didn't do too well.

Francisca was a cousin to Father Adehelma Odermatt who was the Abbott at Abbey at Mt. Angel, Oregon USA who wrote them of land being given away there.

Franz & Francisca Niederberger left Switzerland in 1883 with their 7 children, Frances, Agnes, Nannette, Gustav, Fernande, & Walter. Franz farmed in Oregon until his death of typhoid fever in 1895. Francis lived into her 90's and died in 1934.

Looking for the family of Franz Niederberger and Francis Christen. Your helpl would be very much appreciated.
