    • CHAPTER II. - EARLY CATHOLIC SETTLERS.

      When the first Catholics came, and who they were, can not be told. So many came and stayed only a short time. Mr. John Gatchene, a son of Ignatius, a pioneer in St. Agatha, established a chair factory about 1844. This was burned down in 1852, rebuilt and again destroyed by fire in 1861. Mr. Joseph Schaefer, son of Carl, of Rummelhart, was one of the oldest permanent residents. Before 1850, or in that year, the following Catholics were here: Jacob Dahm, a carpenter; Mrs. Voisin and her son August, a tailor; Joseph Schaefer, clerk; Peter Jung, a lock and gunsmith; Anton Stamm, a pump maker; John Herringer, a limeburner; David Kuntz, a brewer; Joseph Brandt, a brewer; Jacob Kuntz, a brewer; Valentine Schwan, a brewer; Peter Schario, an engineer; Timothy O'Brian, a blacksmith; Louis Heit, stage driver; Michael Heymann, a laborer; Nicholaus Klemm, a laborer; John Schwartz, a clerk; Mr. Lappen, Mr. Schumacher, Valentine Straube, a tinsmith; besides others. As early as 1836 Father Wiriath gives for Waterloo 22 Catholic families, with 105 souls, while in Berlin he found only 4 families with 16 souls.

      Recently found out that my g.g.grandfather lived in Waterloo Co. as I found him on an Ontario 1871 census index. The only thing I know about Valentine STRAUBE, that he was from Greiesen, Poland, and that he came to Ontario abt. 1840-1850?? or so. He married a lady named Catherine GRZEZKUSVAKA OR GRZESZWSKA? One of their daughters, which is my g. grandmother, was born July 2, 1859 in Wilmot. I'd appreciate any help anyone could offer regarding these people. Thanking you in advance, for your kindness. Gratefully, Judy "elista"
