Leonard Scholl 1619-1683

Leonard Scholl was born 1619 in Graben. His birth date was arrived at taking his death date and subtracting the 64 years he lived. He is not found on FS.

Below is his death record in 1683 at 64 years old. That makes him born in 1618/19. He could be the brother of Joss Scholl b 1610. He was a Bürger and Twisted Weaver. In fact both his death record and Magdalena Julia Schollin's death record say Leonard was a weaver or twisted weaver.
In his record it says he was a  Zwirnsweber. Zwirn is a strong double thread, zwi = zwei = two. Therefore his profession was to make robust textiles out of this thread. (Peter Bertschinger)
The year after Leonard's death a woman named Magdalena Julia Jiligin or Jilig died. She passed on the 18 of August 1682. In the death record she says she was married to a Leonard Scholl. Based on her death record she was born in 1622 in Graben. See document below:

To make matters even more confusing there was a Leonhard Scholl who died 13 August 1661 with Anna Christina Scholl as his mother.
