Artzer/ArzerFN{Philipp Anton}: Darrell Brungardt guesses that the family earlier came fromUC Swtizerland but reported that a transcription of Wiesbach church records said this man came fromUC Volkersweiler while his first marriage and children’s births were in Winterbach.  However, usingrior  LDS film #489413 and 247677,  Brent Mai found that Artzer first married Goette{M.Catharina} on 26 February 1743 in Wiesbach where several of their children were born and after his first wife died, he second married Brungard{M.Margaretha} 27 October 1761also in Wiesbach although several of their children were born in Contwig.  The Seewald FSL (#33) said he was a widower fromUC Stambach, Zweibruechen.   Winterbach is some 3 miles N, Wiesbach some 5 miles N, Volkerswiler some 21 km ESE, and Contwig some 2.5 km E, of Stambach.  Darrell believes that more records should be in Homburg which is some 5 miles NNW of Stambach.  For more detail on Brent’s work go to http://cvgs.cu-portland.edu/origins/a/artzer_sewald.cfm
