  • Notes 
    • German Evangelical Lutheran Church

      A congregation, to be known as the German Evangelical Lutheran Congregation in Strasburg, was formed in 1844 by Rev. Wendlin Schuler. The first church (of logs) was built in 1847 or 1848 just south of the Bleams Road intersection. A cemetery adjacent to the church was first used in 1850.

      The congregation was formally organized by Rev. Immanuel Wurster in April, 1857. It was part of a Parish with St. James in Mannheim, St. James in New Dundee, St. Matthew's in Plattsville and St. John's in Berlin, as each was established; the congregation later, on April 1, 1893 became affiliated with only St. James, Mannheim. The old church building was dismantled and removed in 1905.

      HENRY SCHULER, proprietor of the Paris Stoneware Works, was born in Illinois on 25th Sept., 1842, and is a son of Wendlin and Susanna (Brandt) Schuler, who were married in Canada. The former was a native of Baden, Germany, and died in Saugeen, Ont., in 1856, and the latter, who resides now in East Zorra, Ont., was born in the State of Ohio in 1823, and married the second time, Harman Schmidt, who died in St. Louis in 1874. Mrs. Schuler's first husband had been a school teacher for twenty-five years, in New Hamburg, Ont., where he was keeping a hotel about the time of his death. The subject of this sketch was united in marriage, on 21st November, 1861, to Mary Ann Reynest, who was born in Paris, Ont., on the 6th Dec., 1845, and they are both members of the Church of England. Mr. Schuler acquired a good common school education, and engaged in the pottery business in 1868, which he changed into the manufacture of stoneware in 1873. This he has been proprietor of for the past ten years, and has meet with generally good success. There are nine children in the family, seven of whom survive, viz., Anna, Emma, Edward, John, Frederick, James and Lincoln. The parents of Mr. S. had eight children, of whom six are now living, Henry being the oldest, and of them only he and his brother Wendlin reside in the County of Brant.
