Andrist's of Därstetten place of origin (note: or Daerstetten, a-umlaut may be converted in 'ae'). The families known from this place had rights of citizenship of both Därstetten and Oberwil. Although some moved to Därstetten from Oberwil they kept their rights of citizenship for a while. There is a lot more of research for Daerstetten families. This tree currently is of special interest, as we managed to get in contact with descendants in Argentina.

11 ANDRIST, Charles Ernst (Robert?) M 14 Sept 1864 19/20 Switzerland SP RAMSOYER (RAMSEYER ?), Rosetta F 1869 1884 15 Switzerland Romang, Santa Fé, AG REMARKS: Aida wrote: He came to America about l880  and, at l9 or 20, married Rosetta Ramsoyer, who was l5, daughter of John Ramsoyer and Elizabeth Wingeyer, in l884, all of Swiss citizenship. The personal facts about grandfather are scarce because he never spoke of his family. We don't know why; he only said he had two sisters. His father was Emil Robert Andrist and his mother Anna Maria Thomann. Charles Robert Andrist was a blacksmith, at least he did that here in Romang. Grandmother was a homemaker and also worked as an honorary teacher of embroidery for 30 years in the German School which was then located in this area. They ha eight children, two boys and six girls. I am the daughter of Elisa Barbara Andrist and Maximo George William Kaenel (originally von Kanel; in Immigration when my paternal grandfather, Jacob, entered the country, they changed his last name). REMARKS: Willi Andrist: A transcription of his Heimatschein (certificate of origin) says he had inherited rights of citizenship of both Daerstetten and Oberwil im Simmental. This confirms our earlier assumption that Daerstetten Andrists were former Oberwil citizens which obviously kept rights of citizenship of both towns.
