Nicholas (Niklaus or Nickolus) was the father of Elizabeth (Schwartz) Yegerlehner. The Schwartz family emigrated from Switzerland in 1852. Upon arriving in America, they traveled to Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio, and there Niklaus and several of his children stayed. Niklaus had a very large family. He had fifteen children between his two wives. Some of the children moved around Ohio, while two traveled further west into Indiana. Elizabeth moved to Clay County, Indiana after she married Christian Yegerlehner. Her younger brother William B. Schwartz also settled in Clay County.

Niklaus married Elizabeth Kunz who bore him six children: John, Jacob, Christian, Elizabeth, Anna Barbara and Niklaus (d.y.). After Elizabeth died in 1846, Niklaus married his wife’s younger sister Anna Barbara. Their children were Nicholas F., Gottfried, Samuel, Charles, Sevilla, Henry, William, Sophia, and Henrietta.

Niklaus and Barbara are buried at Berlin Cemetery in Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio.

The original photograph comes from a photo album that was scanned by Eric Graham. He was visiting relatives in California when he discovered this album in their possession, and (thankfully!) he had the foresight to ask if he could copy the pictures.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Niklaus and Elizabeth (Kunz) Schwartz. She was a native of Biglen, Canton Bern, Switzerland. She was the eldest daughter and fourth child of her parents. In 1852, she sailed with her family on the ship Hungarian from Le Havre, France. On arriving in the United States, the family settled near Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio, in a predominately Swiss settled area. She married Christian Yegerlehner on 24 November 1861. Christian was also a Swiss native from Canton Bern, Switzerland. A few years later, they moved further west to Owen County, Indiana. They eventually bought farmland in neighboring Clay County, Indiana (which still remains in the family today). She was the mother of ten children.
