  • Notes 
    • David Histand, "the third son of David and Elizabeth (Bechtel) Histand, was born in Upper Providence, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, November 5th, 1789. In spring, 1816, he left his home which was in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and moved to Canada. He arrived at his uncle George Bechtel's place, at Blair, Ontario, where he soon engaged himself to Jacob Bechtel in whose services he was for one year. After the expiration of his year with Mr. Bechtel, he worked for different parties until spring, 1818. On March 10th, 1818, he was married to Elizabeth Bechtel who was born August 8th, 1792, and died July 21st, 1885. Soon after their marriage they moved on the farm now possessed by Isaac M. Shoemaker, about two miles north of Preston. Here he died January 6th, 1833, leaving a widow and three children. The widow was married again to old George Clemens."
