  • Notes 
    • Daniel Hagey, "the second son of Jacob and Susannah (Schwartz) Hagey, was born July 12th, 1784, and died November 14th, 1859. He was married, in 1806, to Elizabeth Bergey (Bergey then spelled Birgi), who was born February 26th, 1784. They resided in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, until 1822 when they, with their four children, moved to Canada. With them came Henry Clemmer, father to John Clemmer, Joseph Bergey, and Abraham Becker. It took them 21 days to make the journey, arriving at Preston about the 20th of October. They settled on a farm, a little north of Preston, where they both died. She died September 16th, 1854. Their family consisted of six children"

      _____________________________

      One who will soon be classed among the old settlers of Preston is Christopher Kress, who by his energy and pluck has accumulated considerable property and who has greatly aided in giving Preston a good name as a desirable place of resort for the cure of rheumatism and kindred diseases, through its mineral baths.

      The mineral springs were struck by one Peter Erb while boring for salt in 1838, which he never obtained. He placed no value in the sulphur water he had so struck. After abandoning boring, the water of the spring was employed for driving an overshot wheel of a wagon making shop, occupied by one Daniel Hagey, until Mr. Samuel Cornell obtained from Mr. Joseph Erb sufficient land near the spring to erect an hotel. Mr. Cornell with great energy built suitable premises and a bath house with boiler to enable him to furnish hot and cold baths.. His undertaking proved successful but death terminated his career. The property was sold and Christopher Kress became its owner. He greatly enlarged, improved and ornamented it and the invalids who have sought and obtained relief at the Preston mineral baths count by the hundreds.
