Anna Sidler 1734 - 1770

Anna Sidler was born 7 December 1734 to Hans Kaspar Sidler and Veronica Schneebeli in Ottenbach. Her father was a well known "treasurer" and Edgaumer. Anna grew up as all children did learning how to pray, the 10 commandments, and the small and large Catechism. When she was 18 she passed some tests and was able to partake of the Lord's supper sometimes called the sacrament.

When she was of age she married Mathias Meier. FamilySearch doesn't list any children for the couple. Julius Billeter says Anna died 7 October 1770 which made her about 36 when she died. Her Pastor says she died from a high fever and usual associated stroke.
