According to legend, his given middle name was Adam. But when he arrived in America, he was "sold" to the Sweigerts to pay for his fare. They treated him so well, that he dropped his middle name of Adam and used Sweigert.
There were two Johan Imboden's in Pennsylvania (one born 1709 and one 1733) about the same time (Johan S and a Johan Adam) and many family trees do-mingle them and the information. One was buried in Oley Hill Cemetery, one in Hill Church Cemetery. Both are commonly referred to as Hill Cemetery. So even burial locations can't help to distinguish them. What is even more confusing, is many people identify Johan S as being buried in Berks county. But I have found him buried in Lebanon County at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=10939276 .
Other's have linked the Dotterer family to this one, but I believe they should really be linked to memorial 14777263.

The location for memorial 10939276 matches where I would expect Johann Sweigert Imboden to be buried. This location matches where I would have expected Johann Adam Imboden (1709 - 1790) to be buried. According to burial records, memorial 14777263 is for a John S born in mid 1800's. So I'm not sure at this point correct burial locations for Johnann Sweigert and Juhann Adam Imboden.
