  • Notes 
    • "Dr. Amos F. Baumann, "the third and youngest son of Moses Baumann, was born at Bloomingdale, Waterloo County, September 29th, 1857. He spent his boyhood days on his father's farm. In 1875 and 76 he prepared himself to pass the teacher's examinations, and in 1877 he was fully qualified for the profession for the province of Ontario. Not finding teaching to be a very pleasant calling, he retired from the profession and began to prepare himself for medical calling. After several years of hard study he passed the medical examinations, and is now one of the most successful doctors of the County. He graduated at Toronto University in 1885. In the same year he entered upon the practice of his profession at Waterloo where he soon gained a liberal patronage. He holds the position as Medical Referee for the Dominion Life Assurance Company. His office is on Albert Street, Waterloo, formerly the residence of his father, the late Moses Baumann."
