  • Notes 
    • Jonas Bingeman, "was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, April 9th, 1817. In 1825 he came to Canada with his parents who had moved in the wilderness near Bridgeport, Ontario. Here he had, even in his boyhood days, to assist in hewing out a home in the primeval forest. When a boy, 14 or 15 years of age, he used to drive through the forest to Dundas, thirty miles distant, being the nearest business place for these early pioneers. A trip to Dundas was nothing uncommon, then considered no more an undertaking than going two miles to town in our day. In common with the rising generation of the day Mr Bingeman received his education in the stern school of experience and hard work. The school he attended was to the east end of Berlin to which place he had to go through miles of forest. He generally took a straight course through the forest from his father's home to that of Mr. John Brubacher's where he met the first clearing. he only subjects then taught were reading, writing, and arithmetic. This school Mr. Bingeman attended for a few short winter months for several years in succession. In 1842 he was married to Elizabeth, daughter of John and Catharine (Sherk) Brubacher. She was born December 13th, 1820. After their marriage they moved on their farm about three miles west of Berlin where they resided until 1882 when they quite the farm and moved to the town of Berlin where they own a beautiful residence, No. 111 S. Frederick Street. They are still enjoying the best of health and are spending the evening of their days in ease and comfort. Their family consisted of nine children".
