  • Notes 
    • Christopher Nahrgang, "The old pioneer settler of this highly respectable family was Christopher, son of George Nahrgang. he was born in Lahrbach, Province of Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, December 25th, 1801. When a young man he chose weaving as his trade and followed it for a number of years. In 1825 he emigrated to America and settled in Canada, choosing Berlin, Waterloo County, Ontario, as the place where he could most successfully carry on his trade. He had his shop at old Joseph Schneider's until he was married to one of Mr. Schneider's daughters, then they moved to near New Hamburg, Ontario, where he followed farming for many years. He was married, April 28th, 1833, to Mary, daughter of Joseph and Barbara (Eby) Schneider. She was born April 1st, 1808, and died at New Hamburg, Ontario, March 22nd, 1887. He died June 22nd, 1886. To them were born eight children"
