  • Notes 
    • Joseph Reist, "the tenth member of John and Susannah (Huber) Reist's family, was born near Lititz, in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, July 12th, 1809. In the beginning of May, 1826, he, in company with his parents and their family, David Martin and family, Jacob Latschaw and family, Emanuel Stauffer and family, and Henry Ernst and family, left Pennsylvania and moved to Canada. They arrived at Berlin, at Rev. Benjamin Eby's place, on May 26th of the same year. His parents located on the farm now owned by Henry Stroh, near Bridgeport, where they resided until March 1827, when they took up lot No. 102, German Company's Tract, near where now Kossuth is. Here they resided until their deaths. On April 17th, 1838, he was married to Magdalena, daughter of Gloth and Elizabeth (Miller) Miller. She was born December 17th, 1823, and died April 25th, 1886. After their marriage he took possession of his father's farm and has resided thereon ever since. They had a family of eleven children, of whom the greater number died in infancy."
