  • Notes 
    • There were either two sisters named Barbara and Margaretha Hochstrasser that Hans married in succession, or the same woman had both names. It is not clear if he had two spouses or one.e matter of the widow of the beheaded Hans Landis and their children of Horgenberg. Confiscation of the household of Hans Landis...When the head governors of Horgan met with Margaretha Hochstrasser, the widow of the late Hannsen Landis of the Horgenberg, after long imprisonment (they) admonished her to leave her beliefs and return to the church. Although these men spoke kindly and gently with her, she would not reconsider...It is to be considered what to do. She cannot be talked to or interviewed. She will not be converted and it would not be good to let her stay single. That is why she shall be taken to the Spital (hospital) in the death room and bound and only the most necessary provisions given. No one will be allowed to speak to her or enter the room, in hopes that she may in this wise be listening and converted." Sources for this information: date: Abt 1554 (Ref: Bittinger LANDIS p 29)
