J(acob/Joseph?)* Ulrich Mishler/Mischler (bef. 1715-1756/70) b. Germany or Swartzenberg, Welden Canton, Switzerland; r. Blue Mountain, Berks Co.; Lancster Co.; or Whiteland, Chester Co., PA (son of Ulrich b. 1687/95?)
(Anna) Dodorea/Dorothea Mueller (Zug) (1700/15-1780/89) b. Baden-Wurttemberg, Swiss-Germany; r. Bernville, Berks Co., PA; and/or Lebanon, & Chester Cos. (possibly daughter of Ulrich Mueller)
Marriage: m1. Dodorea is thought to have first married Christian Zug; m2. before 1730; some list a child (Veronica?) “Anna,” (c. 1710-1829) – could she have been from a first marriage for Joseph or a sister? She is believed to have married our Christian Daniel Miller, Sr.
Emigration: 1711 from Switzerland to Rheinland-Pfalz (palatinate), Germany; 1728 to Baden-Durlach, Wurtemburg, Germany; and 1737 from Germany to Philadelphia via Charming Nancy or 1749 via Phoenix. Daughter Veronica had emigrated in 1749 and married Christian in 1749.
*Joseph signed his oath of allegiance in America in perfect German script, while a Jacob signed only with an “X.” Therefore, it’s believed that Joseph was the father and Jacob was his minor (over age 16). Joseph, Jr. was too young to sign.
Burials: Northkill Amish Burial Grounds, Berks Co., PA (See cemetery “Show map” for GPS) This may have been the farm of Bishop Jacob Herztler.
