  • Notes 
    • Catharine Clemens, "was born May 21st, 1782. She was married to Jacob Kolb who was born April 17th 1781, and died January 3rd, 1869. In 1819 they, in company with others, moved to Canada and settled in Waterloo County, near Breslau, on the farm now possessed by their grand-son, Joseph Kolb. Here she died January 25th, 1869"


      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a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character.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.].

      _____________________________________


      On the 25th of Jan., in Waterloo co., Ontario, Catharine Kolb, aged 86 years, 8 months, and 4 days. She was buried on the 28th by which occasion funeral addresses were delivered by the brethren Daniel Wismer from Rom. 12: 11. and Joseph Hagy from Ps. 39: 5,6. We cherish the good hope that, if we remain faithful, we may meet her again with Jesus, where she was longing to go.
