My great great great grandmothers' name was Elizabeth Weiss and both John and Elizabeth were born in Canton Berne Switzerland, town of Zeinem(?) She was born in 1821 and married John Andrist in 1840. They had seven children in Switzerland and the last two were born in the U.S.A
John and his three brothers came to U.S.A. landing at New York and settled North Georgetown, Ohio. Elizabeth came later with the seven children. This was in 1858. John died March 18, 1875 and is presumed buried in Georgetown,Ohio. After John died, Elizabeth came to Dodge County, Minnesota, where most of her sons were. She died Feb 2, 1902, just 17 days from her 81st birthday. Survived by seven sons. Great great grandmother Elizabeth is buried at Berne, Minnesota, a few miles northwest of Rochester.
