  • Notes 
    • Nicholaus Cober, "from whom all the Cobers in this country are descendants, was born in Pennsylvania, U. S., November 24th, 1763. In 1796 he was married to Eva Fisher who was born June 27th, 1777. In April, 1800, they, with their two children and others, moved to Canada and settled in Vaughan Township, York County, Ontario, about twelve miles north of Toronto. During the first years of their Canadian life they had to contend with numerous hardships and self-denials. In 1810 they had already cleared some eighty acres of their large farm and had erected a comfortable log dwelling and log barn thereon. In course of time the first buildings were replaced by more expensive residences. (Old Mr. Cober must have seen quite a difference in the country from 1800, when it was all forest, until 1840 when York was the Banner County and Toronto the capital of Canada). Mr. and Mrs. Cober raised a family of eleven children"
