    Notes 
    • According to Beat Hodler, "Alois Wyser spent several years abroad as a mercenary. This is not so extraordinary: many young Swiss chose that activity at that time. Later he reached a high position in the Solothurn government. He must have been an interesting personality. He wrote a humorous sketch ('Three Days'), describing his short, but shattering experience as a young school teacher in the village of Niedergösgen in the 1820's." [1]
    • As a farmer's son, Alois decided upon a career in the army. As a professional soldier, he rose to the rank of colonel. He first lived in the town of Solothurn with his family, where he was elected administrator of the Quartermaster Store in 1839. He held this position until his death. He also was Quartermaster General. He died of stomach cancer on 28 Oct 1870. His estate was settled on 24 Apr 1871 (list of beneficiaries and heirs of canon Solothurn, 1870-71, Volume 82, No. 37).

      Hi Craig

      During the last months, I have continued my research about the history of the village of Niedergösgen. It becomes more and more clear to me, that different members of the Wyser family have played a very important role in this community. As attachment, I send you some informations about the familiar background of Bruno Wyser. As soon as I find more, I will inform you.

      Kind regards

      Beat
