The Swiss Family Holliker: Johannes – Military Discharge

The next document I came across was Johannes’ military discharge.  Military service in Switzerland is compulsory, as I think it should be in our nation.  But this is a subject for another post sometime…

The document further validates his birth year (1803) and lists his occupation as a “Landmann,” e.g., “Farmer of Rein.”  So here I picked up that Johannes had an interest in farming, even though I don’t think he owned a  farm at that time.

Johannes was released from military service on 6 August 1828, when he was 24.
