     Anna Elisabetha Becken was born a 1674. She was the daughter of Hanss Jacob Becken. Anna Elisabetha Becken married Hanss Jacob Schwamm, son of Hans Jacob Schwamm and Anna Maria (Unknown), on 1 May 1694 at Mundelsheim, Ludwigsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.
      To marry in 1694 given the custom at that time, Anna Elisabetha Becken would have been born about 1673 or earlier. A birth record was not found for her in reading the 1653 – 1681 original Mundelsheim birth records.

Christoph Schwamm

M, ID# 4683, (3 Apr 1612 - 22 Feb 1683)
Father:Jerg Schwamm (a 1583 - c 1 Aug 1635)
Mother:Maria (Unknown) (a 1588 - )
Charts:Johan Jacob Kizler lineage
     Christoph Schwamm was born on 3 Apr 1612 at Cannstatt, Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. He was the son of Jerg Schwamm and Maria (Unknown). Christoph Schwamm married Margretha (Unknown) a 1640. Christoph Schwamm married Margaretha Webers, daughter of Michael Webers, on 26 Nov 1650 at Cannstatt, Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg. Christoph Schwamm died on 22 Feb 1683 at Mundelsheim, Ludwigsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, at age 70.
      Christoph's original 1612 birth record shows him listed as Christophorg and his parents as Jerg and Maria Schwammer in Cannstatt, Germany; the record was transcribed incorrectly. In the 1600s Christoph's family was the only Schwamm family found in Cannstatt records, although various spelling were used for their surname.

Christoph first partnered with Margaretha about 1640 and their first child of seven was born in 1641. The Mar 1650 death record believed to be hers stated she was a 36-year-old unmarried woman, so apparently Margretha and Christoph never married. Without benefit of a marriage record there is no way to establish Margaretha's maiden name, thus this is the end of this line.

That year in Nov 1650 Christoph married Margaretha Webers and they had at least four children, some born in Cannstatt and later in Mundelsheim. After Oct 1651 Christoph moved with his family to Mundelsheim, 22 miles north of Cannstatt. The Neckar River runs north from Stuttgart near Cannstatt to Mundelsheim which would have facilitated movement north. Mundelsheim became the Schwamm stronghold for the next generations of the Schwamm family.

Despite the numerous Schwamm family records in Mundelsheim and several large families, most children died soon after birth, many men died before they married and daughters usually lost the Swamm surname for their children. Thus tracing the limited number of surviving Schwamm families from the first generation to the seventh generation was accomplished with the Mundelsheim church records.

Based on church records few families produced surviving offspring: in the first generation only Jerg; in the second only Christoph; in the third Jacob and a few were begat by his brother Wolfgang; in the fourth Jacob; and in the fifth Michael and a few by his brother Jacob; and in the sixth Michael and a few by his brothers Gottfried and Conrad. In the seventh generation two Schwamm families flourished with twenty-three children by Thomas and his brother Jerg who at times were both referred to in records by the name of their father Johann Michael.

The dynamics of the Schwamms and perhaps the town were that men generally married between age 26 and 30 and women not before age 21. No illegetimate births were recorded in the Schwamm family until the eighth generation when daughters of both Thomas and Jerg had children out of wedlock.

     Hans Jacob Schwamm was born on 24 Aug 1646 at Cannstatt, Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. He was the son of Christoph Schwamm and Margretha (Unknown). Hans Jacob Schwamm married Anna Maria (Unknown) a 1660.

Hans Jacob Schwamm died on 9 Jan 1733 at Mundelsheim, Ludwigsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg, at age 86.
      Hanss Jacob Schwamm is confused by some researchers with his namesake son who is also in the line of descent, partly because both Jacobs married women named Elisabetha. Simple math shows the elder Hanss Jacob and his wife cannot be the parents of their grandson Johann Michael because the grandmother had completed her childbearing years a decade before Johann Michael was born.

Their children's birth records were recorded with surname spellings of Schwamma, Schwammer, Schwamm and Schwammen.

      Our Jacob Merterers may be the Jacob who died in Jul 1693 in Mundelsheim. The other nine Merterers records in Mundelsheim in the mid to late 1600s convey there were multiple families headed by men named Hans Jacob or a variety thereof. Our Jacob's daughter Elisabetha could have had full siblings Anna Barbara and Anna Christina born in 1658 and 1663 respectively and subsequently other half-siblings or nieces and nephews. Without additional records or the names of the wives and/or mothers the families cannot be accurately pieced together.
