      Michael Kaufmann (May 28, 1648- ) md. Feb. 26, 1668 Elsbeth Hirsing from Schangnau. He lived at Langencgg. Either he or his cousin Michael was constantly at odds with the law. May 10, 1674, he and three others did not attend Easter week services and were hailed into court and severely reprimanded. Jan. 9, 1676, he was ccused of being heard playing with dice in his home, but he explained that no money or other valuables were put up to be won. The court fined him 10 shillings May 1, 1677, since he had been before the court frequently, he promised if they were lenient he would try hard to reform, but he was given a fine of one pound. Mar. 21, 1680, Christian Burger of Langenegg was charged with giving wine away but explained that Michael Kaufmann gave it to him instead of cash out of the estate of Christian Reusser and that he, Christ Burger, agreed to the transaction. The court decided that he must dole out drink in regular order and not get drunk every night as it seemed. It is presumed he moved away about this time.

      An account appears in Sept., 1653, which relates to his father, Michael Kaufmann, who seems to have been among those taking part in the Peasants Rebellion which was severely crushed, and the property of the leaders was confiscated (see Schiffmann, Steffisburg, S. 79).
