  • Notes 
    • PETER BERG, son cf Henry and Elizabeth Berg, was born at Philipsburg Feb. 14th, 1860. He was brought up on the old homestead and educated at the Philipsburg common school. The farm is situated on Lot 18, south of Erb's Road, and was cleared in part by his grandfather, who settled on the farm in 1837. Henry Berg, father of the present owner, took possession on March 7th, 1848. Peter Berg subsequently secured the farm on March 22nd, 1889, and engaged in mixed farming. He held the position of school trustee from 1900 to 1904, and was elected a councillor for Wilmot Township by acclamation 1905 to 1906.1a
