  • Notes 
    • The Blacksmithing needs of the first Mennonite settlers in this district appear to have been attended by Cornelius Pannabecker who came from Pennsylvania in 1810 and some time thereafter set up his forge on the farm at Beaverdale, now owned by Mr. Fred. Lindhorst. David Baer learned the smithing trade with this Cornelius Pennabecker who was his uncle and in 1855 he built the little shop on the Elias Pannabecker farm and started to ply his trade there. Both Samuel Pannabecker and Bernhardt Goebel learned their trades in that shop, and the former succeeded Baer as its proprietor. It is quite probable that David Baer ironed some of the waggons built by John Cober, the waggon maker. Although it is known that Samuel Pannabecker did some ironing for J. N. Cober after he bought his brother John out, and moved to the Tabbert place, it is not likely that this amounted to much because Mr. Cober had his own shop and employed a blacksmith permanently; at first, Thomas Hefferman and later, Barney Goebel. After J. N. Cober moved his carriage business to Hespeler, Mr. Sam. Pannabecker bought that place and continued blacksmithing there along with his farming operations.1a
