I21896: Anne Marie BACHOFFEN (dates unknown)

DUTOIT: A Family from Moudon, Switzerland

Anne Marie BACHOFFEN       (ID #I21896)

(female)
Father: Jacob BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1613, d. 1693?)

Family 1 : Johann Jacob EMBSER (dates unknown)

 

Following Poulet's genealogical table of 1753, we assign her as another daughter of Jacob Bachoffen. She is apparently the Marie daughter of Jacob du Four who appeared as a sponsor for a baptism at the French church in Bischwiller, 07 feb 1683. She may be the Maria Bachofen who died 24 mar 1723 at Olwisheim, wife of Jacob (illegible) des alter, herrschaftl. Muller. Jacob's surname was apparently indexed as Foltzel, but that reading does not seem plausible.

Esther BACHOFFEN       (ID #I21877)

(female)
Father: Jacob BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1613, d. 1693?)

Family 1 : Paul GUILLEMIN (dates unknown)

 

As Esther du Four, daughter of Jacob du Four, miller at Olwisheim, she married Paul Guillemin 18 may 1668 at the Eglise Réformée of Bischwiller. Her death record at Olwisheim calls her Esther Bachofen, wife of "Paul Guilnius des alter" and gives her age as 70 years, 1 month.

Isaac BACHOFFEN       (ID #I21886)

(male)
Father: Abraham BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1600, d. 17 JUN 1696)
Mother: Eve RAPINIER (b. 13 DEC 1612, d. 15 FEB 1697)

 

Since there is no mention of him in any of the documents relating to his father's testament, and since his father instead recognized his second wife's children by her first husband as his rightful heirs, Isaac probably died young.

Jacob BACHOFFEN       (ID #I11955)

(male)
Father: Joseph BACHOFFEN (dates unknown)

Family 1 :
  1.  Magdelaine BACHOFFEN (b. bef 1646, d. aft 1684)
  2. +Johann Georg BACHOFFEN (b. ABT 1648, d. 12 APR 1709)
  3.  Esther BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1645, d. 4 JUN 1715)

Family 2 : Elisabetha DROUIN (d. AFT 1667)
  1. +Jacob BACHOFFEN (b. 26 NOV 1655, d. 3 MAR 1712)
  2.  Joseph BACHOFFEN (b. 18 SEP 1658, d. 27 NOV 1680)
  3.  Elisabetha BACHOFFEN (b. 5 AUG 1666)

 

The genealogies compiled by the minister Jean François Poulet of the Eglise Réformée of Bischwiller (dated 1753, rubric P4742 in the collections of the Archives of Bas-Rhin, Strasbourg) call him Jacob Dufour (Dufour is the French translation of Bachofen) with dates 1613-1693, implying that Poulet had access to a death record, perhaps even a tombstone. Further, he identifies Jacob's wife Elizabeth as Elizabeth Drouin, married to Jacob "Dufour" at Bischwiller in 1654 in the Eglise Réformée. As a consequence, Poulet realized that Jacob's children, or some of them, must have come from a prior marriage. Poulet, however, seems not to have been aware of the records of this family at Olwisheim, nor of the related records in the German Reformed congregation at Bischwiller. Secondary sources give Eckbolsheim, near Strasbourg, as the source of the death record in 1693 (no such entry found in the records of the Lutheran congregation there). However, there is considerable disagreement among the secondary sources. In a number of cases the secondary sources give exact dates of birth or marriage in a particular parish, but no church records covering those dates seem to exist for those parishes.

There are about 40 mentions of the family name Dufour (du Four) in the records of the French protestant congregation at Bischwiller. The name Dufour does not seem to occur in the records of the two German-speaking congregations. There also seem to be scattered references in other parishes, with the result that at least a few genealogists have called the family "Dufour dit Backofen". One genealogist has even cited an oral tradition that Jacob's father Joseph was a "Huguenot" from the region of Westrich, the area immediately west of the lowlands of Alsace. Jacob and his descendants are well documented in the German Reformed records at Bischwiller, with additional records at Olwisheim (some recorded at the church of Berstett). Poulet gives Jacob a brother Abraham who married Eve Rapinet or Rapinier. Abraham is mentioned several times as Dufour in the French records, and his wife turns up as a witness in 1688 in the German Reformed congregation as Eva wife of Abraham Bachofen.

The marriage record for Jacob "Dufour" and Elizabeth Drouin says Jacob was then living at "Expercé", a name very clearly written but otherwise unknown. The place in question should be close to Bischwiller, and several other passages in the church registers of Bischwiller (notably those of the German Reformed congregation) place him at Olwisheim. Therefore, we would expect that "Expercé" must be in the vicinity of Olwisheim. Working from the idea that "Expercé", like Dufour, might be a translation of a German name, Catherine Minck noticed the tiny village of Weitbruch, about 10 km from Olwisheim. If we take "weit" to mean "far from" or "outer", and "bruch" to mean a "break" or "opening" (rather than the other meaning, a marsh), we could translate into French as "ex" (outside of) and "percé" (from percer, to dig a hole, or to make an opening). The German translation of percer is durchbruchen. Weitbruch is about halfway between Bischwiller and Brumath; Olwisheim is just a few kilometers beyond Brumath, to the south. (The actual derivation of Weitbruch seems to have nothing to do with this meaning, but no other village in the region would give rise to a French translation of "Expercé".)

Confirmation of the parentage of Elisabetha is found in a collection of correspondence and other papers relating to the rights of citizens and immigrants to Bischwiller (the document on microfilm from the Family History Library bears the rubric 5J2/2, apparently from the Archives of Bas-Rhin at Strasbourg) . A petition written from Strasbourg by the seigneur with jurisdiction over Olwisheim, Jacob von Berstett, dated 04 mar 1662, concerns Elisabetha, wife of Jacob Bachoffen, miller at Olwisheim. Elisabetha is identified as the daughter of Hannss "Truing", and it appears that her step-mother had resided in Bischwiller. The step-mother's name is written "Cartrinna", perhaps a misspelling of Catrina. She had died and had left an inheritance to Elisabetha. When the Bachoffen family tried to claim the inheritance, they were required to pay a tax. Von Berstett reminded the authorities in Bischwiller that, in the past, the subjects of the Berstetts should not have been charged any fees in such a situation, and requested that the agreements of the past should be observed. In 1662, the Bachoffen family was still at Olwisheim, if we can judge from the baptisms recorded in that area for their children as late as 1666. While this much is clear, no trace of the supposed inheritance has turned up in the town records of Bischwiller that are now preserved at the Archives of Bas-Rhin in Strasbourg. If, for example, "Cartrinna" had remarried after the death of the elder Jean Drouin (noted as deceased as early as 1648), we might no longer be able to recognize her in the records, because she would appear as the widow or wife of someone else.

At least two other Bachoffen's of his generation are noted in the burial records of Bischwiller after 1710: Esther born about 1645 and Maria born about 1664. He was "the younger" at the time of his marriage in 1679, implying his father was still living.

[14545] Also a record of banns at Berstett (of which Olwisheim was an annex), 26 oct 1679, where the bride's surname is given as Turang, even though there were many Dürand families in the parish.

Brother of Johann Peter Bachoffen who married about the same time, and whose marriage record give his father as Hanss Georg Bachoffen (in the German Reformed congregation). However, his wife came from the Lutheran congregation that used the same church, and about half of his children were baptised in that congregation. So far, there is no record of this family at Bischwiller after 1750. (The sons were baptised in the German Reformed congregation, and the daughters in the Lutheran congregation!)

So far, we have no record of him at Bischwiller after 1748. Did the entire family end up in New Jersey? Could the Peter Bockoven who appears in early records of Somerset and Morris Counties, NJ be the father of our George Bockoven instead of his brother? (Such a record is the will of Peter Kemble, 30 nov 1765, leaving to his son Peter "plantation no. 1" in Morristown "now in occupation of Uric Baccover", and to son Robert, "plantation no. 2", occupied by "Mary, widow of Peter Baccover", with George Bockover witness.)

Presumably he is the third of the three brothers, George, Jacob, and Peter Bockoven, who came to New Jersey around 1748. However, it is possible that the "three brothers" story is incorrect or incomplete.

(male)
Family 1 :
  1. +Abraham BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1600, d. 17 JUN 1696)
  2. +Jacob BACHOFFEN (b. abt 1613, d. 1693?)
  3. +Judith BACHOFFEN (dates unknown)
  4.  Anna BACHOFFEN (dates unknown)

 

The genealogies compiled by Jean François Poulet, minister of the Eglise Réformée of Bischwiller, dated 1753, show Joseph as the father of Jacob "du Four" and several other siblings associated with the French church at Bischwiller. So far, we have found no other documents that name Joseph, but the connections between his alleged children seem very logical, based on their appearances at family events such as baptisms. In the 17th Century, they are almost always called du Four in the records of the French church, and always Bachoffen or Bachofen in the records of the two German congregations at Bischwiller. Likewise, the town records of Bischwiller (now at the Archives of Bas-Rhin, in Strasbourg) usually use Dufour when the document is written in French, and Bachoffen when it is in German. In the one case where we found a French original translated into German in the late 17th Century, the witness "Abraham Dufour" in the original became "Abraham Bachoffen" in the translation.

Judith BACHOFFEN       (ID #I21892)

(female)
Father: Joseph BACHOFFEN (dates unknown)

Family 1 : Jean VAUTRAIN (dates unknown)
  1.  Jean VAUTRAIN (bp. 18 NOV 1657)

 

Her descendants evidently ended up with the name Woodring in the US. Internet sources, not verified, tell us that this couple was married at the Lutheran church of "Vinstingen" in 1636, on the 8th Sunday after Trinity, and further, that most of their children were baptised there, even though the family actually lived at nearby Kirberg. Political conditions led to the migration of "several" families to Bischwiller about 1650. Other towns named in the context of this family's stay at Kirberg include Helleringen and Lixheim. "Vinstingen" is another spelling of Finstingen, the German name for the town of Fénétrange in the Départemente of Moselle.

She appears as a sponsor at a baptism in 1661, and so had probably reached the age of first communion by that date.
