  • Notes 
    • Philip Zeller, "The Zellers of this county are descendants of old Philip Zeller, a native of Rhein Bajerin, Germany, where he was born February 2nd, 1791. He was married to Elizabeth Glueck who was born in the same place January 10th, 1792. In 1833 they emigrated to America and in June of the same year they came to Buffalo, New York, where they made a stay of only three weeks. From here they moved across the boundary line and settled within one-half mile from St. Catharines, Lincoln County, Ontario, where he purchased a farm. Here she died September 18th, 1844. In April, 1846, Mr. Zeller disposed of his real estate and moved to Waterloo County, Ontario, where he purchased the farm of John Cressman, deceased. This farm contained 183 acres and the price paid for it was $4600. In 1854 this large farm was divided into two farms. The north part was purchased by Mr. Philip Zeller, the younger son of old Mr. Zeller, while Jacob Zeller retained the south part, containing the old "Cressman Buildings." Here Mr. Zeller died July 18th, 1854. His family consisted of five children, viz:"1
