Notes for Elsbeth Meÿer
She was born in the Fajuana district. She was christened together with her twin sister Ursula. The godparents and witnesses for her christening were Christen Matthis, Ottli Willi, Barbla Truogin, Maria Töni, and Nesa [Agnes] Flutsch. Her christening record is annotated with the date of her death.

She is listed as Elsbeth Tarnutzer rather than Meyer on the 1838 census. She is named on her daughter’s death certificate.
Notes for Nicholas (Spouse 1)
He was born in the Fajauna district. The godparents and witnesses at his christening were Clas Schaleben, Klas Meyer, Stina Flütschin, Anna Casalin, and Eva Kesslerin. His christening record is annotated with his death date.

They were living in the Fajauna district at the time of the 1848 census. The part of town he was living in when he died was Faj., short for Fajauna, on the hillside east of Schiers. This is confirmed by the fact that his son Rutger was described as being from Fajauna when he was confirmed.

His name is given on his daughter’s death certificate.
