There is a Zürcher Pfarrerbuch - but I don't find it in the familysearch catalogue
Kent: I may have found Anna Barbara Hamburger von Unter-
Wezikon. FS number KHQY-T14. FS names her parents and I 
attached her birth in 1786, not much else. She would be 
20 years old, which I think is possible.

Mrs. Anna Barbara Salzmann, née Jenta, ...., dies on 16.11.1875 and is buried on 21.11.1875 in Maschwanden ZH.


Question: Please help me to read the word after "Jenta": this position usually refers to the place of residence or citizenship - not to the cause of death. Nevertheless, I don't want to rule that out either. To compare the script: here is the complete page.
Who has an idea?
Note: The date of birth given (09.01.1806) is also surprising, as she was baptized on 15.06.1806 in Wetzikon ZH.
