      As early as 1634, Heinrich, age 15 has been reported living at Muhlekram with his father and a servant from Swabia, Germay. During the 1640 census of Baretswil,Heinrich is shown to be living in Hinter Gryffenberg,now called Hinterberg, with a family who were to become his in-laws the following year. The stay with the Uli and Anna Ruegg (Ruggin) family had its benefits; although separated from his father who was in Oethenbach prison in Zurich,Heinrich found love with Elsbeth Ruggin,whom he married on January 6, 1641. He(Heini Waber) is listed as a widower in Muhlekram by 1670, where he lived with three of his children, including...Hans (our immigrant ancestor, Johann Anton Weber). Three other of his children had already moved up into the Palatinate, two living near Sinsheim.

      One of the religious beliefs taught by the Mennonites was that it was a God-imposed duty to have as many children as a mother could bear. Heinrich and Elsbeth must have been good Mennonites because hey had ten children. Most, if not all, born and/or baptized in Baretswil parish,Canton, Zurich, Switzerland.
