  • Notes 
    • George Clemens, "was born in 1786. He received the old homestead and never came to Canada. He died February 6th, 1843, leaving a family of eight children. All these with their descendants reside in Pennsylvania. In June, 1855, Abraham, one of the sons, who was married to Mary Nice, moved to Canada and settled two miles south of Breslau, on the farm now owned by Daniel Wenger. Some thirty years ago he was accidentally drowned in the Grand River while engaged in fishing. His widow and family, after his decease, returned to Montgomery County, Pennsylvania."
