  • Notes 
    • Wendell Hallman, "the youngest son of Benjamin and Elizabeth (Detweiler) Hallman, was born in North Dumfries Township, Waterloo County, Ontario, November 4th, 1827. His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm near Roseville. On February 13th, 1849, he was married to Nancy Schlichter who was born August 24th, 1829. Soon after their marriage they settled on a farm (The farm is now owned by Mr. Samuel Tohman) about a mile west of New Dundee, where they resided until March 20th, 1883, when they sold their farm and moved to Yale, Michigan, where he again purchased a farm and followed farming for several years but now lives retired. Nearly thirty years ago he was ordained to the ministry for the River Brethren (Dunkards) denomination, for which body he is still a diligent worker. As a minister he is well liked by his congregation and others, and his sermons are distinguished for the great amount of well-digested thought so vividly expressed in the plainest language, that no one hearing him preach can say, "I did not understand him," for all who wish to be taught out of the Word of God, will say, "Mr. Hallman's sermons are always Gospel-like and soul-cheering." In his habits he is very domestic."
