  • Notes 
    • Noah S. Bowman, "was born near Bloomingdale, Waterloo County, Ontario, October 23rd, 1843. He spent his boyhood days in attending the public schools of the neighborhood and acquired a knowledge of the branches then customary to be taught, viz: reading, writing, arithmetic, and spelling. When about twelve years of age he was apprenticed to learn the dry goods and grocery business with John B. Snyder & Bro. who were then engaged as general merchants and doing a rushing business in Winterbourne, Waterloo County. Here young Bowman remained from 1855 until 1862. When Mr. J. P. Snyder opened his new store in Conestogo he engaged young Noah to be his principal and confidential clerk. So well was J. P. Snyder pleased with him that at the end of two years the two formed a partnership which existed from 1864 until 1872, when Mr Bowman bought Mr. Snyder's interest in the business. From that time up to the present he was the manager and proprietor of the large business now carried on by himself and his sons. He was first married to Emily Webb who was born in Suffolk, England, February 2nd, 1847, and died March 27th, 1879. After the decease of his first wife he was married to Sarah Hysert of Lincoln County, Ontario. With first wife he had a family of five children"
