  • Notes 
    • Christian Schlichter, "(from some source of the Schlichter family the writer was informed that the father of old Christian, Daniel and John was Daniel and that they were members of the Mennonite Church), was a native of Switzerland, where he was born in 1761. He emigrated to America with his two elder brothers, Daniel (none of the descendants of Daniel and John are in Canada) and John, and settled in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. His brother, Daniel, who was born in 1759, settled in the same locality but the descendants of John settled in New York State. Christian was married to Mary Wanderbach and had a family of five children. Some time during the beginning of the present century he, together with his wife and family, moved to Canada and settled in Waterloo County, Ontario, a little north of Preston on the place known as "Green's Farm" where they died not many years after their coming to this country."
