  • Notes 
    • George Clemens, "eldest son of Abraham and Catharine Clemens, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1732. When a young man his father paid him his portion of legacy and he left Montgomery County and went to Chester County, same state, where he invested in real estate in both Pikeland and Charlestown Townships. In 1760-61 he erected a grist mill where he made quite a fortune. He was married to Elizabeth Carlisle. They lived retired for several years when he died in September, 1813, aged about 81 years. To him and his wife Elizabeth were born quite a family but the names of only two sons have been handed to the writer, namely: V Abraham and V George who both settled in the county of Waterloo, Ontario."

      "(Elizabeth was of Quaker descent and was well educated. According to report she was skilled in medicines, proving herself to be the doctoress for miles around her home during the colonial days.)"
