About Dimanche George

George: This was a local, French-speaking family of Natzwiller, before the arrival there of German-speaking miners and Swiss farmers. In 1621, Jehannon the wife of Dimanche George of Neuvillers confessed to witchcraft, probably under torture, saying that about 1612 she and other sorcerers used black powder to cause a plague in the village of Belmont. A branch of the family in Riangoutte (or Ringelspach), near Neuvillers, adopted the name of their residence. In 1623, Blaise Georges (BlaiE Georg) of Riangoutte is called in the same document BlarE Ringelspach vohn Neuweyller, and another document in the same year calls Dimanche Georges (Sontag son of Hans Georg) Sontag Ringelspach.
