Discussion & Documentation: 

Nobertus Arzt (age 19) and his sister Maria Elisabeth (age 10) are recorded on the 1767 census of Ober-Monjou in Household No. 85. They had settled there on 5 March 1767.

The widow and children of Norbertus Arzt are recorded on the 1798 census of Ober-Monjou in Households No. Om45 & Om51.

The 1767 census records that Norbertus Arzt came from the German village of Ronneburg. [Since the Arzt family was Catholic, it is unlikely that this is the Calvinist village of Ronneburg in Hessen - but rather, the Ronneburg in Saxony.]
