      1aThe Biographical History of Waterloo Township, by Ezra Eby

      _______________

      Joseph sold his property (234 Tilt Dr., Kitchener) to Jacob Block on 25 September 1883 (Waterloo Township, Land Record Abstracts, instr. #8976; Eby 1895:281). The 1891 Census did not enumerate Jacob Block in the sub-district where this property is located, but did enumerate his son there. Samuel Block was 57 years old, and his wife, Cathrine, was 52: they had five children. They were living in a wooden, 1½ storey, 9-room house. Jacob Block died on 3 June 1893, and his executors sold the property to his son, Samuel, on 18 December 1894 (Waterloo Township, Land Record Abstracts, instr.13114). Samuel retained the house and land until 1920.

      _______________


      Question: Did Samuel remarry. In the 1901 Census is a Samuel Block born 8 Jun 1840 with wife Maria with two children Emma and Edward.
