Zacherle in Austria
The oldest data
The oldest reference to someone with the name Zacherle is a christening record of Anna Maria Zacherle, who was christened in may 1574 in Brixen im Thale, Tirolia, Austria.
Sebastian - a hungarian reference
At a hungarian homepage I found a document about a Sebastian Zacherle. The hungarian original is:
The english translation is:
Unfortunately I do not have any more information about that. Currently I am looking for this “chronicle of Hain”. I found that there is a german translation, but this one seems only to be an excerpt of the original, hungarian edition.
Franz, the painter
Franz Zacherle was a painter, coming from Hall in Tirolia. In 1772 he was accepted as a member of the academy. His masterpiece is Pygmalion, falling in love with his own statue. In the "Garten zu Hietzing" near Schönbrunn there are marble statues made by him. He died around 1790.

In 1778 there was a member of the Zacherle family working as an innkeeper (Sternwirt) near a mill called "Breimül". More then a century later a german Zacherle was innkeeper in Dietenheim - strange coincidence. And of course there's Nile, the wine and beer maker...
In a series of books called
Österreichischen Kaiserthums (Military Schematism of the Austrian
Empire) I found two references in the 1828 and 1830 edition concerning
Wilhelm Zacherle who was Lieutenant Second Class in 1828 and Lieutenant
First Class in 1830 in the 41st
Galicia Infantry Regiment of the empirial austrian army.
I found three entries of Zacherle's in the austrian yellow pages. It seems that all three people live close to each other. Unfortunately, I did not (yet) have time to get in contact with them. This definitely is on my "To-Do-List", too!
