Re: Glass maker ancestors - Pierre's birthdate

Are you asking about the Nicholas Schwoerer who married Marie Anne Walter? I show this Nicholas was born 22 Jan 1776 in Meisenthal, Moselle, Lorraine, France. Marie Anne was born 7 Jan 1776 in the same place. He is the son of Jean Nicholas Schwoerer and Marie Ursule Walter. She is the daughter of Gaspard Jean Walter and Marie Madeleine Burgun. I show this Nicholas has a brother Antoine born 17 Aug 1777 in Meisenthal. Antoine is married to Ursule Walcker. I also show in the Soucht marriage records a Nicolas (no h in prenom) Schwoerer who married 31 Jan 1775 to Ursule Walber. He is listed as being the son of Antoine and M. Walter and she is listed as the daughter of Jacques and M Bourgon. This means there are 2 Nicolas Schwoerer living in Meisenthal at the same which is not that odd as many cousins had the same names and these towns were filled with cousins. I see no Pierre in the marriage records I have here. But Nicolas appears to have a sister named Marie who marries Joseph Bourgon son of Adam and Barbe Walter also on 31 Jan 1775. Double wedding! In her record her mother is listed as Marie not just M.

The information on Pierre shows a birth date of 1 Sep 1765 in Rosteig Bas Rhin France. He died 20 Jul 1824 Meisenthal. He married on 19 May 1801 Meisenthal Marie Madelaine Burgun. This information came from documents I got by being a member of GenVerrE which is an international organization comprised of descendants of glass and crystal makers. There are many Schwoerer descendants in this group.
I show Pierre is the son of Gaspard Schwoerer and Magdalaine Reinberger. They have 7 children two of which bore the name of Nicholas. One born 14 May 1759 and the other one born 14 May 1770. Now that seems very odd to me...
But some families did name a later child after an earlier one that had died. I do not show that the first one married or when he may have died. Nor do I have that information for the 2nd one. I also do not have the actual marriage record for this information but got it from GenVerrE email in 2003.

Hope this helps at least tell you where my info is coming from and that I do show Pierre is the brother of 2 Nicholas brothers. Other siblings of Pierre are: Anne Magdelaine born 14 Dec 1760, Antoine born 13 Mar 1763, Madelaine Anne born about 1762, Martin born about 1759, then Nicolas 1, Pierre, and Nicolas 2.


Sources for my information include Meisenthal and Soucht records, GenVerrE emails and base de donnes, various family
family records as I descend from Schwoerer, Burgun, and Walter lines.
