Deed to Bernhard's Farm (first page)

This Deed, also called a Patent, conveyed the land from Daniel Snider (Schneider) to Bernhard Zentmeyer. Interestingly, the farm was called "Bishwiler," which is the German spelling for "Bischwiller." Bischwiller is the town in Bas-Rhin, Alsace where Bernhard and Salome were married and where most of their children were born. But the fact that the farm was called Bishwiler prior to Bernhard's arrival in America points to the likelihood that Bernhard was following the path of earlier emigrants from Bischwiller who had settled near Penryn, including perhaps Snider.
