  • Notes 
    • John Baumann, "the fourth son of Joseph Baumann, was born April 4th, 1800, and died of paralysis, September 22nd, 1850, in Lincoln County, Ontario. He was married to Nancy Bechtel."

      John B. Baumann, "the fourth son of Rev. Joseph and Mary (Baer) Baumann, was born in Berks County, Pennsylvania, April 4th, 1800. In 1816, he in company with his parents and their family, moved to Canada and settled at Blair, Waterloo County. About the year 1825 he was married to Nancy, daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Gabel) Bechtel. She was born June 6th, 1808, and died August 3rd, 1855. Soon after their marriage they moved a little north of the "Toll Bridge" on the farm now possessed by George Becker. Here they resided until their death. When he was about thirty-five years of age he was called to the ministry. He proved himself to be an able minister and a good worker among his class. While on his pastoral duties he died of paralysis, September 21st, 1850, at the Twenty, Lincoln County, Ontario. Their family consists of three children"

      Bloomingdale (Schneider or Snyder) Mennonite Church

      Services began in 1824, and in 1826 a first meeting house, known as Schneider's or Snyder's, was built northwest of Bloomingdale, and east of the Grand River, on land (part Lot 7) donated by Jacob Schneider. Henry Weber was the first minister to this congregation, from 1824 until 1854. He was followed by Moses Erb who was ordained minister to the congregation on April 14, 1854. The church building was primarily used as a school in the beginning; the first teacher was John Bauman from Pennsylvania. Church services were held in homes. Dorothy Sauder, in her 1972 history of the church, states that "Prior to 1860, Schneider's was the only [Mennonite] place of worship on the Grand River and, until the 1889 Martin schism, it was one with the Martin congregation with ministers serving both groups" (Sauder 1972: 8). Services were held on a two-week schedule, at one meeting house and then at the other.

      Snyder's was affected by division in the church in the early 1870s. The majority of the congregation joined the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites, a group organized by Solomon Eby on May 15, 1874, and from 1875-1879 the meeting house was used almost exclusively by them. It was here that the conference was held on March 23, 1875 in which the New Mennonites and the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites joined together as the United Mennonites. However, because the original deed to the church property had been lost or perhaps never duly executed, a new deed was drawn up on January 15, 1879, giving ownership of building and property to the group of more conservative Mennonites in the congregation.

      The present church was built in 1878 on approximately the same site as the first meeting house. Renovations to the church building were carried out in 1951. One main entrance, to replace the two separate entrances, was part of the changes made. Further improvements were made in 1985. The name of the church is now Bloomingdale Mennonite Church.
