    • David Weber," the second son of Benjamin and Veronica (Martin) Weber, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, June 22nd, 1811. When a mere lad he came to Canada with his parents, in 1817. He was raised a little to the north of the town of Waterloo where his father resided. The old home is now in possession of Joseph Weber, a grandson of old Benjamin Weber. He was married to Catherine Eby, February 3rd, 1833. She was a daughter of Bishop Benjamin Eby, and was born July 25th, 1815. and died March 30th, 1867. After their marriage they moved on the farm now forming a part of the town of Berlin. In 1849 they left this place and moved three miles east of Berlin, on the farm (east end of lot No. 120, German Company Tract) now possessed by his sons, Theodore and Henry. Here they resided until their deaths. He died September 17th,1877. His family consisted of eleven children"

      St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church

      Early Catholic settlers in Berlin travelled to St. Agatha for worship services. Father John Wiriath recorded only six Catholic families in Berlin as of 1837. Father Wiriath was followed by Fathers Peter Schneider and Simon Sanderl who served Berlin from their base at St. Agatha. The next missionaries in the area were the Jesuits, Fathers Lucas Caveng and Bernard Fritsch, who served from 1847. More Catholics settled in Berlin and when it was chosen as the county seat in 1852, with the expected arrival of additional settlers, plans were made to construct a church.

      A site at Weber and Young Streets was purchased from Mr. David Weber, and the cornerstone for the church was laid in 1854. This brick church was completed and dedicated in 1856, but was used only on an average of perhaps once a month as the congregation had to share the time of the priests from St. Agatha. While Rev. George Laufhuber was priest from 1857-1859 a Separate School was organized. The congregation was primarily German at this time. Father Laufhuber was followed by Fathers P. Edward Glowacki (or Glowalski) and Francis Breitkopf, and then by Rev. Dr. Louis Funcken (1866-1890). Regular services began in 1866. Additions were made to this church with a new Sanctuary in 1871, and a larger Sacristy in 1881. A new school was built in 1874, and a new convent in 1885.

      Land for the present church, adjacent to the old one, was purchased in 1899, sod was turned on Sunday, May 27, 1900 and the cornerstone of the new church building was laid on September 30, 1900. Dedication services were held in the new church on December 13, 1903. The full name of the church is Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows
