  • Notes 
    • Rev. Jacob Hallman, "the eldest in the family, was born November 18th, 1803. In 1822 he, in company with Mr. Lutz, walked to Canada and made Waterloo County, Ontario, his home for about two years, then he returned to his native state where he remained until the following spring when he and his father and family moved to Canada. Some time after his arrival he was married to Eva, daughter of Christian and Polly (Ruth) Strome (Then spelled Strohm). She was born September 9th, 1805, and died July 11th, 1886. Soon after their marriage they moved on their farm in Wilmot Township, about two and one-half miles north of New Dundee where they resided until their deaths. In 1837 he was called to the ministry of the Mennonite Church which body he served faithfully for over forty years. His sermons were always plain, practical, and accompanied with a strong appeal to the younger members of the congregation to live up to the teachings of the Scriptures. His great and only desire was that he might pass the rest of his days in the humble yet honorable service in the ministry of the Lord, to which he was so sincerely attached. He died March 23rd, 1878. His family consisted of six children"1a
