Wilhelm Scholl 1633 - 1669

Wilhelm Scholl could be the son of Joss Scholl and
Barbara Dietrich. Although the Graben records do not go back to the 1630s if we subtract his age at death which is 36 from the date of death we find he was born in 1633. No other records have been found on Wilhelm even though a careful search has been made by hand of all early Graben entries. Because Joss Scholl was born in 1610 Joss could be the father of Wilhelm because Joss is 23 years old at Wilhelm's birth. in 1633 and because Wilhelm's mother, Barbara Dietrich, was born in 1614 - that makes Barbara 19 at Wilhelm's birth.

response was censored, you can go to Thode, page 116, for his definition of "Hurenkind" to see the complete definitions of this word.
