Thank you! I very much appreciate your response and willingness to help. Here is what I know. It was August 1980. We drove from Lenzburg through Zurich (or at least near Zurich and we took a brief side trip to drive though it). We parked and hiked along a relatively flat trail next to a beautiful alpine stream. I don't believe it was possible to drive to the farm, and that you had to take this hike along the stream to get there. One thing that struck me throughout was that the hills above had multiple military cave-like features. And I believe there were spent "dummy" shells around that my Swiss cousin said was from the mountain artillery practicing. Attached are more photos. After staying the night at the farm, we hiked up those mountains and slept in the snow above tree level. I thought perhaps seeing the mountain peaks, and/or valley below would help identify the location. While the detail is not clear, I believe the one photo shot down into a valley (marked photo number 7) is of the farm location. A small spot at the bottom of the valley may be that farm. Sorry, it was so long ago.
I know it's a long shot, but it's worth asking if anyone may be able to help to me locate my cousin. He lived in Lenzburg. Father's name was Alois. Mother's name was Rita. Brother's name was Eberhard.
