      Samuel B. Bowman, "known as "Miller Sam" was born in Berks County, Pennsylvania, February 6th, 1802. He was a son of Rev. Joseph and Mary (Baer) Baumann, who moved to Canada with their large family in 1816 and settled at Blair, Waterloo County, where he was raised, and after the decease of his parents purchased the old homestead where he also died November 17th, 1883. He was married to Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Baumann of Pennsylvania. She was born September 12th, 1811, and died April 30th, 1865. He was a practical miller as well as a farmer, and in his time did a large business among the farming community. His residence and part of the farm are still in possession of the descendants of old Rev. Joseph Baumann, but the mills are now owned by Mr. Hilborn. Their family consists of seven children"
