  • Notes 
    • John Gottlieb was baptized Johann Gottlieb and his name was anglicized after his immigration. Witnesses at his baptism were Gottlieb Keßi of Belmont, at Biel; Johannes Niggeler, gym teacher at Münchenbuchsee; and Maria Freidrich, teacher at Vinelz.
      John Gottlieb immigrated to the United States, arriving at the port of New York on 14 June 1866 aboard the Teutonia which had sailed from Hamburg, Germany. The ship’s manifest lists him as Gottl. Kessy, 16-year-old male, labourer, from Switzerland. [1, 10]
