  • Notes 
    • West of Waterloo Town on the Upper Road, as it was formerly called, and called the little settlement Rummelhart, after one of the principal early immigrants. Frieburger, Schwartz and others bought land here from the Mennonites. Carl Schaefer, a shoemaker from Baden, began the first tavern here, and kept it till his death, making and mending shoes at the same time. Martin Hergott, came with his father, when nine years old. His father bought the last farm on the north side of the Upper Road on the west end of the Township at about 1830. His son Martin grew up on the farm and remained on it till called by death at the age of about 94 years, in 1915.
