Notes for Elisabeth Reidin
She was from Malans at the time of her marriage. She apparently died in Grüsch (check those records), age 54. Surprisingly (if this is a correct identification), the record does not mention her husband's name.

I did not find her death record, or anything close to it, in the Grüsch death (burial) records. I had misread her surname earlier as Krinli. The naming patterns of her children suggest Jacob and Ursula as possible candidates for her parents' given names.
Notes for Andreas (Spouse 1)
He was born in the Schiers district. The godparents and witnesses at his christening were Hercules von Salis, ___ Dunas, Disch Wundig, Johannes Dalatz, Jacob Truog, Maria Fandrina Plantin, Ursula Allieschin, and Trina Aggala.162 He was already a Landamman and a "preacher of God's Word" at the time of his marriage. He served as the priest at Schiers for 48 years.

The Schuders Taufbuch (v. 3) states that he served as priest until 1724. That book calls him "Nauli" instead of Andreas, but his brother Nauli died in 1716! The biography of Andreas given there attacks him for just going through the motions of being the priest and not increasing the religious knowledge. He is described as being one who had studied much but not one who diligently applied himself to the priesthood. The parishoners couldn't sing hymns, confirmation examinations were desultory, etc.

Truog's history of Evangelical priests in Graubünden describes him as being from Schiers and ordained in 1674. He served first at Furnas 1676-1679, Schiers 1679-1731, and also at Schuders from 1679-1724 (according to the Schuders listing, the biography under Furnas says 1724-1731). He died 24 December 1731., 252
