Biography:

Sources are contradictory in regards to Marianne. Some claim she was born in Switzerland, while others claim she was born in France. Also half the sources that claim she was born in Switzerland claim she was born in 1716 while the other half and the claims of her being from France claim she was born in 1697. If she was born in 1697, she married at the age of 39, which was uncommon during that time period, her daugher was born at the age of 41 and she lived to the age of 97, but her mother gave birth to her at the age of 22. If she was born in 1716 her daugher was born when she was 22 and she died at the age of 78, but her mother gave birth to her at the age of 41.

Neither of the above sources is proven, but the more reliable of these is that she was born in about 1716 in Switzerland.
