Johannes Sidler 1583-1625+

Johannes Sidler born in 1583 married Katharina Kleiner born 1584. They had 11children from 1606 to 1625. Katharina died when she was 44 in 1627. That was 2 years following the birth of her eleventh child. Johannes lived to be at least 42 because he had a child at that age but no death date has been found. (Temple Record Sidler and Hegetschweiler, by Julius Billeter, page 7)  

One of Johannes's god parents was Pfarrer or Ottenbach Pastor Johannes Blunschli, (dean of the chapter since 1571,) who died 1604. (see Pastors)

A search has been made for their marriage date in the Zürich Archives datebase but none was located. They may not go back that far. They probably married a little after 1600.
