  • Notes 
    • Christian Witmer, "The progenitor of the Witmers of Canada was a native of Switzerland where he was born probably as early as 1735. He emigrated to America and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, about the year 1760. All the information that could be obtained in regard to this old progenitor was that his name was Christian and that his family consisted of nine children. The names of four were David, (One of David's sons (Martin) settled in this county at an early date) Henry, Abraham, and Joseph. (These four sons were of the younger members of the progenitor's family)."
