      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      ________________________

      It is thought she is the daughter of John Biehn and Nancy Bechtel although The Biographical History of Waterloo Township indicates she was the daughter of John's father and his wife Barbara Fried. More research is needed to confirm.
