  • Notes 
    • Adam Unger, "son of John Unger, a native of Switzerland, was born in Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, about the year 1763. When some twenty years of age he, in company with others, emigrated to America and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, near Lititz. Here he was married to Elizabeth Koehner. They had a family of six children, two sons and four daughters, all born in Warwick Township. In 1812 he, in company with his wife and family, moved to Canada and arrived at Preston, Waterloo County, May 31st. For a short time they resided in one of the small log houses on the left side of the road leading from Preston to Blair, about a quarter mile from Cress's Hotel. From here he moved on north-west quarter of lot No. 54, German Company's Tract, near Centreville, part of his farm is now owned by David Thaler. After residing here for some years he sold this property and moved near Preston where he died."
