  • Notes 
    • HERMAN H. MEYER - was born in German Mills, Ontario (now Parkway) April 27, 1867, on a small farm owned by his father John George Meyer, who was born in Hessen, Germany. His mother was Magdalena Haas, also born in Hessen, Germany. Herman was the seventh member of a family of fourteen children. He was married to Salinda Sitler, Jan. 1889 ,the daughter of Henry and Susannah (Good) Sitler , of Mosa Township, Middlesex County. She was born May 12, 1869. Owing to the father's death Salinda was raised by her aunt, Mrs. Isaac Snider of German Mills. Her public school education ended in the Jr. II class. She was taught good housekeeping methods which were considered more important for a girl . She met Herman Meyer at a singing school held, at the Mennonite church and were married by Von Pirich, pastor of St. Peter' s Lutheran church at Berlin. After their marriage they moved to Mr. Fry' s farm between Breslau and Bridgeport where he was employed as a married hired nan.. They were here for some years and in 1896 Herman Mever decided to purchase a small plot of land and settled in Rosendale with his family. The kept a few cows and did market gardening disposing of their produce at the Berlin weekly market.

      There were six children - Lola, Ada and Berta born at Bridgeport: Elma, Verna and Roy born at Rosendale. The children attended S.S.#12 Bloomingdale Public School and the United Brethren Church. Eighteen years later (1914) Herman H. Meyer bought the Isaac Moyer place, next door (north) and sold this small property to Konrad Grundig.
