    • Tilman Shantz, "was born January 8th, 1850. On March 20, 1871, he was married to Esther, daughter of Benjamin and Magdalena (Shantz) Snyder. After their marriage they moved on the farm now possessed by his brother Aaron S. Shantz. Here they remained for one year, then, on March 6th, 1872, they moved to Maryborough Township, Wellington County, 4th Concession, near Wallace line. Here they resided until March 6th, 1875, when they moved on the farm they now possess, north-east quarter of lot No. 9, German Company's Tract, about three miles north of the town of Waterloo where he is engaged as a farmer and breeder of thoroughbred stock. He has been councillor for two years, 1884-5, deputy reeve for six years, 1886-91, and reeve for the year 1892. He always takes an active part in political matters and strongly advocates the platform taken by the Liberals of this province. His family consists of nine children"
