Notes for David DÄLLENBACH
David Dällenbach married Henriette Garaud, perhaps about 1788 and probably in Bévilard, Switzerland. This couple lived in this small village which is located near Delémont. Henriette was herself a native of Bévilard, but David was a native of Oberthal, near Großhöchstetten, Switzerland. A mention of their three children's baptisms was found recorded in the church records of Großhöchstetten, and the original records in or near Bévilard are currently being sought. Their son David's passport still exists, and from that record we can see that the family received their passports on 19 Jul 1816. The passport was stamped and signed at the following locations: Berne 19 Jul 1816, Neuchatel 25 Dec 1816, Bâle 1 Jan 1817, and Basel 6 Jan 1817. This matches perfectly with the 1817 immigration date listed in Emily's eulogy. Family traditions passed down through David Franz's family state that the family got as far as the Rhein River when their father David took ill and passed away. They returned home to bury him and then started off again. Although we have not yet located their immigration records, they probably went down the Rhein River to the port city of Rotterdam and set sail from there. David must have died sometime in 1817 and is probably buried in Bévilard or Oberthal. There is a chance that the family traditions are incorrect and perhaps he was buried in the location where he died. Henriette probably died in either Fairfield or Licking Co., Ohio.
