  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Charles Martell (forename Ann) predeceased her husband. Her surname was, according to family tradition, "Smith" [= Schmid ?]; The re-copied family bible states a location that most likely sounded like "Duglishone in Switzerland," or could be mistranscribed as such.

      Places to try:
      Dachlissen, Zurich [part of Mettmenstetten]
      Dachslern, Zurich
      Detligen, Bern
      Taeglischuer, Zurich
      Taegerschen, Thurgau

      There were Swiss people in Halifax because of the "Foreign Protestant" settlement, however, if Charles was in Philadelphia and/or New York, he could have met and married her there. This might explain the elusive nature of a marriage record.
