      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      ____________________________


      "Due to other Martins who used "B" for identification, Peter gave his family the initial "P" for "Peter". Levi married, moved to Wallace Township, was ordained a deacon in the Mennonite church, had a daughter, and lost his wife, all in the year 1869. In 1884 he returned to his father's farm (Irvin Shantz farm), where he farmed until 1903, when he retired to the "doddy-haus"." Ivan Kraemer, Elora, Ontario 1998
