This post isn’t about a member of a royal family or a kidnapped beauty. Anna Schaffner lived in Muttenz, Switzerland and and was the wife of a linen weaver. She was born in November of 1700 and married to Hans Jacob Brubeck on September 20, 1720. He died sometime in 1748 and she and their children decided to immigrate to America. Her children arrived in Pennsylvania on August 30, 1749, she did not. Anna died sometime between May 8th when they left Germany and the end of August when the ship landed in Philadelphia. There are no Wiki’s about her, her parents aren’t known she is a side note to geneologists but she was a wife, mother, daughter and explorer. She was an immigrant.
