History, Genealogy & Ancestry
DESCENDANTS OF JOHANNES SCHWARTZ
Johannes Schwartz was a native of Canton Bern, Switzerland, He died at Berne, Adams County, Indiana and is buried in the Peter Schwartz Cemetery, three miles north of Berne.  Anna (Ramseier) Schwartz was born in France and died at Berne, Adams County, Indiana, and is buried on the Huser farm, west of Berne, Indiana. Johannes’ parents suffered much persecution in an effort to escape it, they moved from Switzerland into Montbelir, France, where they had more freedom of worship.  After persecution in Switzerland abated, they returned but within a short period of years again went to France, on an estate called Saur in Debardema Du Du. Johannes saw the clothes worn by the last martyr, Haszlibacher, and he drank water from the Bern town well which is said to have turned to blood during and after the execution of the man from Haszlibach.  Johannes and Anna (Ramseier) Schwartz resided one and a half miles from Santiglit, Department Dauchs, France. This was about six hours from the city of Montbelir and nine hours from Belford. On account of their conscientious objection to compulsory military training in their homeland they eventually decided to migrate to America. Their knowledge of the country to which they were about to migrate was unbelievably scant.  What little they knew they had gathered from land and travel agents who told fabulous stories of the land across the ‘Western Sea’ which possessed riches untold and offered glorious opportunities for all. So when they compared their poverty-stricken condition with the glamorous possibilities of the New World they finally decided to chance the great undertaking. Leaving behind a comparatively well settled and somewhat developed region in their Fatherland, they little realized what fate had in store for them in the future.  Of even greater propensities were the grief and sorrow incurred by departing from their friends and loved ones, their families and neighbors, all acquaintances and all the scenes of their childhood which were so dear to their hearts, to go to a land unknown to them and more than 3000 miles away across the wild and stormy deep. On December 2, 1852 John and Joseph, sons of Johannes, left their home in France for Paris, the first stage of their journey to America. On December 6, they sailed from Havre and arrived in New York on February 2, 1853, after a fifty-eight day voyage on the Atlantic Ocean.  After leaving New York, Joseph became ill and was confined to a Buffalo, New York, hospital for several weeks. After his recovery, they continued on their journey to Starke County, Ohio. In the latter part of April 1853, fifty-two persons with eleven teams and wagons started west for Allen County, Indiana. In May 1853, Johannes and the rest of the Schwartz family also left France and sailed for America. In the autumn of that year they arrived in Adams County, Indiana., and settled in virtual wilderness.

AN ESSAY ON THE FAMILY OF SCHWARTZ. From the St. James Magazine Vol. 11 pg. 101
There was once upon a time, in the little district of Guebwiller, in Alsatia, a very honest family of the name of Schwartz, which supplied Alsatians to the whole world. Alsatians are generally looked upon with favour, and the Schwartz family somehow placed its young ones in favourable positions. The family consequently flourished, increasing and multiplying with evangelical abundance, sending its broods of youngsters to Paris, to the provinces, or abroad, and, in spite of these continual exportations, always keeping in stock an imposing number of little Schwartzes and Schwartzesses ready to be packed oft”. Normandy has been specially celebrated in song. This may be right, for no country produces apples so fine or lawyers so handsome; but for commerce, choral societies, and beer, Normandy can in no degree compete with Alsatia. A young Schwartz, carefully trained and ripe for conquest, resumes in himself all the virtues of the Savoyard, the Provencal, and the Auvergnat ; he possesses the proverbial economy of the first, the imperturbable self-confidence of the second, and the chivalrous delicacy of the third. And thus I defy you to find in Europe a city of two thousand souls which does not possess at least one Schwartz of Guebwiller, and which, in its innermost heart, does not congratulate itself upon the fact. In 1825 there were two of them at Caen, — a commissary of police, as trustworthy as he was skilful ; and a pastry cook, who was honestly making a fortune. This date of 1825, the locality, and the word commissary of police, may perhaps be a sufficient hint to the reader that we are about to speak of the famous Maynotte trial. But we do not mind that. Amongst celebrated trials the Maynotte affair is one of the most curious, and one of the least known. Moreover, we invite those ..who think they know the case, not to shut up the book ; they will here find something more than the simple details of that strange judicial error.  On the 14th of June of this same year 1825, a young Schwartz — a real Schwartz of Guebwiller — arrived at Caen on the outside of the Paris diligence. His attire was neat and clean, indicating an amount of careful attention which does not always succeed in disguising poverty. His hair was brown, his skin very dark, and his features somewhat sharp. This type, which is not very common in Alsatia, is generally modified by a precocious obesity. J. B. Schwartz, however, was very thin. His age did not appear to be more than twenty. The general aspect of his countenance was that of gentle gravity, — disturbed, however, by eyes that had a sharp and eager look. His luggage was sufficiently slender to allow of his taking the whole of it under his arm on alighting in the yard of the Messageries. Touters for hotels are generally more or less physiognomists, especially in Normandy : nobody applied for his custom. He obtained the address of M. Schwartz, the commissary of police, and that of M. Schwartz the pastry cook. Between Schwartzes at the top of the ladder and Schwartzes on the bottom rail there is a certain freemasonry. Our young traveler was very well received both by the magistrate and the shopkeeper ; they made inquiries about the old place, and were visibly affected at hearing that both his father and his mother were dead, leaving two full dozens of orphan Schwartzes of tender age. He was the eldest. In twenty years his worthy mother had had sixteen confinements, six of which were double. The Schwartz ladies are all the same, thanks be to Providence ! There was no necessity for him to state that he came to Caen to gain a livelihood ; it is an understood thing that a Schwartz does not travel for pleasure. Both the commissary of police and the pastry cook exclaimed during his interview with them, ” What a pity ! if you had only come last week …. But it happens that a Schwartz is already engaged ! ” A Schwartz had an engagement at the pastry cook’s ; a Schwartz had made a nest at the police office : there are always enough and to spare of the Schwartz tribe. Thus we may see in forests oaks of every size growing humbly, in order to replace large trees condemned to die. During the dinner-hour our young traveller was strolling in melancholy mood on the banks of the Orne. The hospitality of his two compatriots had not extended to the point of offering him a seat at table. He still carried his luggage under his arm, and his thoughts were not quite couleur de rose. Doubtless, before giving up to despair, there remained a great number of Schwartzes to be called upon in various departments of France ; but his finances were exhausted, and his stomach had perforce exhibited patience ever since the morning. “Eh, Schwartz !” exclaimed a joyous voice behind him. He quickly turned round, already well pleased, for any meeting is good to the hungry when there is the possibility of a dinner at the end of it. Nevertheless, at the sight of the new comer, the countenance of J. B. Schwartz darkened and his eyes fell. A young man of his own age, very presentably attired, but whose elegance, mi generis, proclaimed a commercial traveller, was coming towards him along the quay, smiling and holding out his hand. ” How are you, old fellow ?” inquired the new comer, roundly. ” Here we are in the native place of the bretif gras, eh ?”  And after shaking the hand of Schwartz, which, remained inert ^and cold, he added, — ” How strangely people meet each other sometimes I” ” True, M. Lecoq,” replied the young Alsatian, raising his hat ceremoniously ; ” people meet each other in this way.” M. Lecoq caught hold of his arm, apparently somewhat to the discomfort of Schwartz. It should be said that there was nothing in the aspect of the new comer to account for such a repulsion. He was a handsome young fellow, with a fresh complexion, a jaunty air, and an open, dare devil look. His manners might want distinction, and there might be an abuse of vivid colours in his costume ; but these details were of little importance to our Alsatian. At Guebwiller people are very prudent. The fact that J. B. Schwartz evidently fought shy of the dashing M. Lecoq, should, therefore, to a certain extent, put us on our guard against the commercial traveller. ” Have we dined ?” inquired the latter, after walking a few steps. Schwartz reddened, and his quick eyes began to roll; but he answered, — ” Yes, yes, Monsieur Lecoq.” The commercial traveller stopped, looked him in the face, and burst into a somewhat forced peal of laughter. ” Yaas, yaas, Mezie Lecoq!” he repeated, exaggerating his companion’s accent. ” Stop that kind of fun. We can tell lies like a real scamp, Baptiste ! Those who told you, my friend,” added he, with lofty dignity, ” that I was turned out of the premises of Monnier Brothers, lied in their throats ! Lecoq, the adopted son of a colonel, is not to be bowed out, I can tell you. It is Lecoq who bows himself out, when his employers have the misfortune to displease him. Monnier is simply a block head. He gave me four thousand francs ; Berthier and Co. offered five thousand and my commissions, and I closed with them.” ” Five thousand and commissions !” repeated the Alsatian, smacking his lips. ” That’s good — eh, mm ami ? But I don’t intend to stop at that. . . . And how is it you are not with Monnier — you ?” ” They had to reduce the number of hands in their employment.” ” I told you, — blockheads. . . . How much did they give you ?” “Three hundred francs and my breakfast. . . .” “Of bread and water? Their place is a contemptible hole. Jean- Baptiste, if I ventured to express myself frankly, I should inform you that you are a perfect goose.” Schwartz tried to smile, and answered, — ” I have not such luck as you have, Monsieur Lecoq.” They had left the water-side, and were going up the Rue Saint- Jean. The commercial traveller shrugged his shoulders, and assumed a profoundly wise air. ” In commerce, Jean-Baptiste, there is neither good luck nor bad luck. It’s the way of holding one’s cards, that’s all, eh ? . . . and the mode in which one risks what has already been gained. As for myself, so soon as I find a flaw in Berthier and Co., I shall be off to other quarters, where I can get eight thousand francs or more.” ” You must be putting by something handsome, M. Lecoq !” interrupted Schwartz, full of admiration. M. Lecoq let go his arm in order to give him a tremendous punch in the ribs. ” Play, wine, and women ! I am a young man of family, and your timid muffs never make a fortune, eh, dear boy ?” At the same time he twisted Schwartz to the right-about, and pushed him through the entrance to a rambling old house having for a sign a splendid painting, representing a long-legged winged biped trampling on the mane of a lion, with the legend, The Game Cock. J. B. Schwartz submitted ; for a strong odour of flesh-pots had taken him by the nose, as a wrestler might seize a bullock by the horns. ” I say, waiter, chambermaid !” called out M. Lecoq, in the imperious ‘ tone which characterizes the commercial traveller in an hotel. ” Mother Brule ! father Brule ! someone — the devil ! Is everybody dead ?” Mother Brule exhibited, on the threshold of her kitchen, the venerable face of a sorceress. M. Lecoq blew her a kiss, and said, — ” As I have found a very faithful friend, and as the table d’hote must by this time be nearly cleared, be so good as to serve a banquet for two, at four francs a head, in my own room. And distinguish yourself, eh, my angel ?”  He was rewarded by the toothless smile of the hostess. ” It is here I hang out when I come to Caen,” continued he, whilst mounting the broken steps of the staircase. ” They would give me the slates off the roof on credit. But that’s of no use just now, eh, dear boy ? Pray take the trouble to come in.” This time J. B. Schwartz complied without resistance. The odour of the saucepans had taken effect upon the sensual portion of his organization. I know not what vague echo of the recent words of Lecoq rang in his cars, — ” Play, wine, and women.” Gambling certainly was not in accordance with his tastes, but for wine he had no dislike, and the thought of loving some beautiful woman sent a thrill through his soul. These men of Alsatia may be as backward as you please ; but when their August comes they burst into blossom. It was the chamber of an inn, ugly and not very clean. Scarcely had they entered when M. Lecoq rushed to the staircase, and called out in a stentorian voice, — ” I say, girl ! father Brule ! mother Brule !” And when he was answered, — ” My trap at eight o’clock, military time ! I must be at Alencjon ,to-morrow morning.” Returning towards his guest, he carelessly added, — ” The firm of Berthier allows a trap and horse. And at this time of the year I travel by night, so as not to spoil my complexion.” ” If I might venture . . .” began J. B. Schwartz, in an insinuating tone. “To ask me for a seat in my chariot?” interrupted Lecoq. ” Yes.” ” Yaas ! — Well, don’t venture, Jean-Baptiste, eh? We’ll have a chat by-and-bye, my good fellow ; I’ve got other designs upon you just now.” An expression of distrust was again evidenced upon the features of our Schwartz, who murmured, — ” You know, Monsieur Lecoq, I am but a poor young man.” ” Well, well, we’ll talk it over, I tell you. — We’re not going to ask anything very prodigious of you.” While Monsieur Lecoq was talking he was changing his town attire for a travelling costume. When the servant came up with the dishes, he threw open his portmanteau. ” Before we start for foreign parts,” cried he, ” I wish to settle my account. See that the charges are exact, young woman, eh ? not forgetting that I am privileged with the usual commercial discount, and a feed of oats for my charger.” J. B. Schwartz was probably not the king of observers, nevertheless he could see pretty clearly ; and it appeared to him that M. Lecoq made a great show of his departure. He became attentive, and certainly, sup posing M. Lecoq meant to play a farce, the audience was sufficiently on its guard. But this was of little avail against M. Lecoq, who was, as we shall have occasion to perceive, an original tactician of the first order. ” Did you see the sign ?” said he, suddenly taking his place at the table, — ,” The Game Cock. It was that fixed my choice, eh, Jean-Baptiste? I am Lecoq, and I am a game one. Let us unbosom ourselves ; you may perhaps render me a service, my boy, and I pay ready money. 1 am in funds. I have had one or two good affairs here ; the day before yesterday I sold to M. Bancelle, the richest banker in Caen, an iron safe with secret lock and trap against burglars — new model — with which he has quite fallen in love. Nothing else is talked of all over the town. All the bankers in Normandy will now want these safes, and I may have an interest in the firm of Berthier whenever I please. Here’s to my health !” He tossed off a glass of wine after his soup, and continued,— “Why, because I’m a gamecock, able to make myself at home anywhere, good appearance, elegant address, facility of elocution, and that kind of thing. You, my boy, you’re the chicken, eh ? threadbare coat, >emptv purse, always afraid of something happening ! — There are then two Schwartzes at Caen ; I always hit upon the facts of a case at once, you know. The Schwartzes are like the Hebrews, they push each other out in the world, but very meanly, eh ? After the carp, the Alsatian is the softest and the most cold-blooded of animals. — Nothing to be done at the pastry cook’s, nothing to be done at the commissary. Then here we have my poor friend wanting to go to Alencon to look out for other Schwartzes : what nonsense, eh ?” This kind of thing was not very pleasant to listen to ; and yet, such is the power of a good appetite, our young friend managed to do justice to the repast. Eating leads to drinking ; the generous Lecoq kept his companion’s glass filled with wine. It is true that the wine one gets at the inns in Normandy has a vile reputation in every quarter of the globe, travellers going so far as to say that nowhere else can we find it so sour, so heavy, so unmistakably detestable, and that no chemist up to the present time has been able to discover the noxious substances which enter into the composition of this cruel beverage ; but, on the one hand, those who come from Guebwiller are not difficult to please, and on the other, the exemplary sobriety of our poor friend had made his head about as strong as that of a young girl. As the banquet at four francs followed its sumptuous course, after devouring baeuf a la mode on the top of a fricandeau, and an omelet on the top of the baeuf a la mode, J. B. Schwartz felt within him an unwanted warmth ; he regained his manhood, and actually caught him self envying the hardihood of M. Lecoq.  In the little world of Parisian subordinates where J. B. Schwartz had already lived during some few months, Lecoq had not the best possible reputation ; neither his antecedents nor his acquaintances were known ; there were even prevalent about him certain damaging reports; but nothing had been proved against him, and envy always follows in the steps of success. Lecoq was a successful man ; a salary of five thousand francs, his commissions, and a trap to drive about in. There were, in 1825, but few commercial travellers who had arrived at this summit of prosperity. J. B. Schwartz looked up to him with humility and respect; each glass of Normandy wine added to the measure of his admiration. At the dessert, if all the joys of this Lecoq had been placed on the one hand, and all the virtues of Alsatia on the other, it would have been difficult to say to which side the choice of J. B. Schwartz would have inclined. He was honest, nevertheless, in the sense that he would not have deceived you to the extent of one farthing on an invoice once made out ; it remains to be considered how the invoice is made out. The cheese was on the table, as were the four elbows of our two friends, who were chatting together. ” It’s a married woman,” this Don Juan of a Lecoq was saying. ” You understand, Jean-Baptiste, at our age a man is not made of wood.” And J. B. Schwartz made a sign of assent, the coward ! ” With married women,” resumed Lecoq, “one must be careful; there is the Code.” ” Then don’t you go !” cried Schwartz, upon whom this word produced an extraordinary effect — a fresh proof of his Alsatian honesty. But Lecoq placed his hand upon his heart, and pronounced in a dramatic tone, — ” I have set my heart upon it, old boy ! I would die rather than renounce my happiness ! Besides,” added he, with less emphasis, ” we are up to snuff, Jean-Baptiste. Every precaution is taken, and there is a letter, signed by myself, now travelling by the mail. Tomorrow it will be thrown in the letter-box at Alencon, addressed to father Brule, to request him to forward my silver-headed cane, there in the corner, which I intend to forget when 1 leave.” ” Ah !” murmured Schwartz. ” All this for a little love affair ! ” M. Lecoq filled the glasses. He raised his own to his lips, taking advantage of this movement to scrutinize his companion. They were at the end of the third bottle ; Schwartz had dined copiously. ” This puts me in mind,” said he, ” of some of the accounts in the papers. What do they call that kind of thing at the sessions ? Establishing an alibi, I think.” M. Lecoq burst out laughing. “Bravo, mon ami!” cried he, “we’ll make something of you. You hit upon the right word at once, Jean-Baptiste, eh ? An alibi ! that’s it exactly, by Jove ! I establish an alibi in case the husband should chance to be troublesome. There are other things besides roses in the trade of seducer ; there are sometimes sword-thrusts, and the husband is an old soldier ! — Here, girl ! coffee and liqueurs ! quick !” All this was delivered with great volubility, for M. Lecoq fancied he saw a suspicion lurking beneath the heavy gaze of his guest. ” I should be very sorry myself to run my head into such a hornet’s nest ! ” thought the latter aloud, in all the calm pride of superior wisdom. ” Jean-Baptiste,” exclaimed M. Lecoq, helping him to an ample bumper of brandy, ” your turn will come ; you too will experience the wild frenzy of passion. . . But I have not told you everything, eh ? The husband is an intimate friend of the commissary of police.” J. B. Schwartz drew back his chair. ” Monsieur Lecoq,” exclaimed he, with resolution, ” I have nothing to do with your affairs.” ” Indeed you have, mon ami! indeed you have. ” Now listen to me, my dear Schwartz, and be reasonable. I pay you one hundred francs, ready money, without discount, for one word which you will whisper this evening in the ear of the commissary of police, quietly, and with the utmost innocence. . . . Why, it is but something to laugh at, and to oblige papa. That’s all !”
