About Jehannon / Jeanne unknown

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.

She confessed that, after nine years, she and the witches of the Ban de la Roche caused a plague contagion in the village of Belmont, with black powder that Piercin gave them. In this same contagion, she poisoned her first husband.

She confessed that at the Sabbath, they worship Piercin by kneeling in front of him, naming him by name and recognizing him as their teacher.
