  • Notes 
    • Christian Weber," son of Christian and Catherine (Bruck) Weber, was born in the village of Dietrichhingen, district of Zweibruecken, Rhein Bayren, Germany, March 4th, 1810. When in his nineteenth year he bid adieu to his fatherland and emigrated to America. After arriving at New York in safety he was obliged to work for some time in order to raise sufficient means to defray his expenses across the ocean. In a few years he had, by diligent labor, saved so much from his earnings that he was able to pay the expenses of bringing his parents and others of the family to this country. Some time during the year 1833 or 1834 he, together with his parents and others, moved to Canada and settled near Wilmot Centre, Waterloo County, Ontario, where Mr Weber was married to Elizabeth Schmaus who was born June 29th, 1818, and died June 3rd, 1886. Here they resided about twenty years, then he disposed of his farm and purchased that of Moses Weaver a little east of Heidelberg where they resided until their deaths. He died March 22nd, 1886. Mr. Weber was a man of noble character, industrious and economical. Modesty, coolness and deliberation were some of his characteristics. His descendants are not so much distinguished for being great men as for the uniform private worth of all of them, not intending to convey the idea that they are less able or competent to fill public positions than others but that a certain feature of character impells them always to attend to their own business first. None of them are and never have been ambitious for public citizenship. Mr. and Mrs. Weber were blessed with a family of eight children"
