Hi Barbara,
Anna Elisa Rey(10-12-1841)was my half-great-grandaunt. Her father, Rudolf(b.4-21-1811) was my 2nd great grandfather(YOURS,TOO!) Anna's mother was Rudolf's 2nd wife(Anna Dobeli,b.1805). She also had Anna Maria Rey(1842-1844) and Adolf Rey(stillborn in 1847). Rudolf's 1st wife,Susanna Hochstrasser(1812-1840), was my 2nd great-grandmother and the mother of Rudolf Rey(1836-1914) and Samuel Rey(1838-1907)[my great-grandfather]. I have info on the Mullers you wrote of as well as the Fischers. Johannes Muller marr. Johanna Fischer. She was the 2nd child of Jakob Fischer(1810-1846) and Rudolf's younger sister,Elizabeth Rey(1815-1839). Elizabeth was my 2nd great-grandaunt and Johanna my 1st cousin 3 times removed.

I have a lot more info. Please e-mail me at and I'll fill you in. It appears we're 1st cousins 3-4times removed.

Tom Rey
