Jean Joseph ANDRES, ° 28-10-1681 in Rohrdorf, close to Isny, Allgau, in Württemberg, † 25-09-1743 at Merchweiler glassmaking in Illingen (the Saar). His profession was glass-maker. He came from Zwiefalten, to 100 km south-east of Stuttgart, 50 km south-western of Ulm in Württemberg in Souabe, in 1723. He went then to the glassmaking industry of Hassel, close to St Ingbert, in the Palatinate Saar, Two-Bridges, accompanied by his wife and his children, Melchior, Balthasar and Jean. He thus worked from the very start in this forest glassmaking. This glassmaking, created in 1723, ceased its activities around 1745/46 (Crismer, pp. 327, 341). About 1737, they left Hassel for the glassmaking house of Merchweiller with Illingen (the Saar).
Hohenzollern, Ursula HAUKENMILLER (= HOCQUEMILLER), born about 1684 in Wiggensbach, in Allgau (it should be noted that the R.P. begin in 1696). She is the daughter of Jacques HAGGEMILLER and Brigitte SCHMIDT from Oberhaufen, southern village west of Kimratshofen, sovereignty of Kempten, in Allgau, in Souabe Bavaroise. When her son Antoine married in 1747, Ursula lived in Illingen. She died in Charleroi the 28-08-1755, "widowed Jean Andris, buried the following day, provided with the sacraments of the Holy Church".
Jacques Hocquemiller is probably the first glass-maker in this family, which one finds operation with the glassmaking of Unter Kürnach since 1669 (Crismer, p. 340). Mr Crismer adds: "many citizens of Allgau were employed; but only one would be allowed in the dynasty of the blowers of blood. It is about their son Jean Haggenmiller because his/her mother was Schmidt and her two elder sisters, Anastasie and Ursula, had married two Masters glass-makers, respectively Jacques Schmidt and Jean Joseph Andres.

Mr Claude Andries, in a work in preparation, studied the history of the family ANDREIS-ANDRES-ANDRIES during 16th and 17th Centuries and wanted to show the bonds between Allgau and Trente. He proposed that Jean Jh Andres met Ursula Haggenmiller because the HAGENMILLERs belonged to a family of restorers of churches. What is certain, is that Johan Georg HAGGENMÜLLER was a stucco worker (nobody who manufactures stuccos imitating the marble). He had studied in Rome and he worked in 1684 on the restoration of the St. Lorentz Basilica in Kempten. He had executed the columns in false marble of the Master furnace bridge of the basilica; raised gold columns (source "Oberschwäbische Barockstrasse", vol. III - Spahr p. 113).

Therefore, the HAGGENMÜLLERs and the ANDRESes knew each other since they worked together with the restoration of the basilica. It is possible, but not completely certain, that a Jacques HAGGENMÜLLER (X Brigitte SCHMIDT) was a glass-maker.

At the same time, Jean ANDRES (X Marie FALLER), is a glass-maker with Unterkürnach. This locality was dependent on Wiggensbach (see Spahr, vol. III, p. 94). the glassmaking was transported in 1685 in Obere Kürnach.
