    • Abram B. Martin, "son of Abraham Martin and first cousin to Peter Martin who settled a few miles north of Waterloo in 1819, was born in Earl Township, Lancaster County, near a place called Blue Ball, July 30th, 1788. In spring of 1824 he moved to Canada and settled in Waterloo County, near Conestogo, on the farm now owned by David Musselman. From here he moved to Doon where he was engaged in running the saw mills for old John Biehn. While here he purchased a farm next to Joseph Reist's near Kossuth, on which he moved after leaving Doon. Here he resided until his death which took place March 10th, 1834. He was married to Barbara, daughter of Samuel Weaver of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and sister to old Moses Weaver who used to keep hotel in Dundas. They had a family of eight children"
