Stephen Harnsberger md Ursula Shitley ca 1750

Stephen Hansaberger/Harrensperger/Hanceburger/Harnsberger md Ursilla Shitley/Schulteli/Shoetli. My 4th great grandmother was Ursilla's sister, Ann. They and their sister, Francis, were step daughters of John Fotch/Fudge. Ann married George Zimmerman/Carpenter as his second wife. There is a list of emigres from Hallau, Switzerland, that includes both a Hans Fotsch with 3 step children and a Jerg Zimmerman with two children and a stepdaughter. We think the John Fotsch step children are Ann, Ursilla, and Francis. These families resided in that part of Augusta County that became Rockingham County. Do any Harnsberger researchers have more information? The list of emigres for Schaffhausen Canton is found on the Switzerland Genealogy site.
