Brunner family from Lutzelfluh, Bern Canton
Posted by: Susan Brunner (ID *****1392) Date: October 12, 2010 at 13:19:51
  of 9014

I am looking for information on descendants and ancestors of Jacob Albin Brunner b. 1832 in Bern Canton, Switzerland, perhaps Lützelflüh. He lived in Munsingen and Bern. His first wife was Elizabeth Breit and 2nd wife Mary (Maria) Stuckey or Stukey or Stucki. His parents were Christen Brunner and Anna Wymann. His grandfather, I believe, was Christen Brunner. Jakob\'s siblings are (Elisabeth 1825), Hans Ulrich (1827) and Friedrich (1830).

Jacob came to Canada with his 2nd wife and their children, plus a couple of children from his first wife. His children by his first wife are Johann-Jakob (1856), Gottlieb (1857), Friedrich (1859), again a Gottlieb (1861), Maria Luise (1864), Martha (1868), Jakob (1870), and Elisabeth (9.Jan.1873). Gottlieb and Mary (Maria) Louisa of this 1st wife came to Canada with him or separately. Children Elizabeth, Herman Albin, Bertha, Ernest, Lydia and Otto, of his 2nd wife, came with him. Another child, Hannah, was born in Canada.

I have a copy of his travel documents, but I cannot read them as they are in German.
