    Notes 
    • In her 1981 unpublished manuscript, BonnieMargaret Jacobs writes that "Johann Jacob (III) grew up in Plüderhausen with his sister and his cousins, but his father had died a year before the son would have begun his apprenticeship, thus he could not follow in his fathers trade as wannanmacher. He apparently apprenticed with his Uncle Christianius to become a weaver. When he was 20, perhaps in his wandering years as a journeyman, he met Maria Katharina Bauer, whose family had been citizens of Breech, in Börtlingen parish, for several generations. There is, of course, no record of how the young couple felt about each other or what their intent was. But it was not long before they were faced with a difficult choice [because of Catharina's pregnancy]. Under the restrictive marriage laws of the time, it would have been economic suicide for young Jacob to marry Katharina, he would have had to forfeit his imminent promotion to master status. Katharina was pregant with no husband, and while her unfortunate situation was not unusual, it was still difficult. Though the illegitimacy rate in Württemberg was high, so was the infanticide rate. Many young women tried to hide their pregnancies and dispose of their children, but she did not. She would have been called before her pastor to explain the circumstances of her pregnancy and identify the father. In this case, both Katharina and Jacob acknowledged their relationship. In many other cases, that didn't happen and the child would bear his mother's surname. If the father was identified, and acknowledged his paternity, then the child would bear the name of his true father.  (p. 56).

    • BonnieMargaret indicates that on the Plüderhausen marriage record of Maria to Johann Jacob, he was listed as a "Burger, Weaver and Weingartner (vintner, or wine gardener)." The marriage inventory, page five, stated that among other items Jacob brought into the marriage were 200 florins that he had inheritied from his grandfather, but that after a subtraction of a fee he had to pay his "Weibsbild" for the upbringing of his illegitimate son from a prior relationship, he had 125 florins of this inheritance remaining.

      BonnieMargaret said the "Weibsbild" was a Schwabish idiom that translates roughly into "the lady was no lady," a term of contempt for the pregnant, unmarried woman.  In "Gender, Language and New Literacy: A Multilingual Analysis" by Eva-Maria Thüne, et-al, it is shown that Weibsbild is a compound word literally meaning 'picture of a spouse' and in actuality meaning "hag" ---and is derogatory in current usage.
