Josue Zumbrunnen IV

Life Sketch
Josue Zumbrunnen IV was born in the early 1600s to Burkhard Zumbrunnen and Ana Catharina Behsler.

Like his father, he became the chief clerk of Uri and later moved to Sargans to serve as the landvogt, or bailiff. During his tenure as bailiff, he lived in Sargans Castle. He held the office immediately after his father until 1666. He was also a member of the council of Uri and a representative to the Swiss diet from 1675 to 1681.

He married Ana Margareta Zumbrunnen who was his second cousin once-removed, that is, the daughter of his second cousin Anton Zumbrunnen.

Together they had nine children. She may have died young because he married a second time to Barbara von Beroldingen. He thus became at least the third Zumbrunnen man to marry a Beroldingen girl. The Beroldingen family owned the Beroldingen Castle. He had two more children with Barbara.

He died on December 21, 1684.
