    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. Book, "Wampler Family History 1500s - 1700s," by Fred B. Wampler, Ph.D., pp. 29-51 provides copies and detailed discussion of various mortgages contracted in the late 1600's by Hans Wampler and his sons with the Diemtigen Church funds which acted as a local bank. Using these mortgages, one can prove that Hans did in fact have three sons: Peter, Hans, and Christian. Several of the mortgages were redeemed in 1720 by Jacob Klossner and his sister Barbara Klossner - there was a Barbara Klossner who married the son Hans Wampfler. The Swiss named every piece of land and these names still survive - using these mortgages one can locate Schuopis, Geisegg, and Meniggrund. Specifically we learn the family home was on the Geisegg in Oeyen which is in Zwischenfl├╝h and can be walked today. (The book contains a photo of this piece of land in a panoramic view of the large alpine valley.) One of the mortgages refers to Peter Klossner, brother in law of Hans Wampfler, or brother to Barbara Klossner.
