  • Notes 
    • Valentine Clemmer, "(Velte), was the first by that name to come to America. Tradition has it that he came to Philadelphia in 1717 and thence to Montgomery County where we find him, in 1728, engaged in the ministry of the Mennonite Church. It is said that he was a bishop of the Mennonites ere his coming to America. It is not known to whom he was married nor what number of children he raised. We have the names of two sons, Abraham and Henry. There were other sons but their names have not been handed to the writer. Tradition has it that Abraham was married to a Maria Mosser and Henry to Anna Honsberger."
