Oberlin's Namesake: John Frederick Oberlin (1740-1826)

Jérémie-Jacques Oberlin (1735-1806)

Oberlin's older brother, Jérémie-Jacques Oberlin (1735-1806), was a respected scholar at the University of Strasbourg and a distinguished historian and philologist. The brothers had married women who were sisters, thus their relationship was especially close. Jérémie-Jacques published a book about the dialects and folkways of the Ban de la Roche in 1775, while John Frederick was teaching his parishioners the French language to mitigate their isolation.
