  • Notes 
    • Henry M. Clemmer, "son of Abraham, was born in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in April, 1783, and died August 13th, 1866. In 1806 he was married to Sarah Bergey who was born in March, 1786, and died April 7th, 1867. They, in company with others, moved to Canada and arrived at old Christian Shantz's, one mile south-east of Berlin, in May, 1822. During the summer he purchased from H. Lamb, a farm situated near Preston. On this place he resided until 1837 when he made a deal with Christian Erb, exchanging this place for one of over two hundred acres, situated two miles north of the town of Waterloo. Here they resided until their deaths. They had a family of eight children, all of which were born in Franconia Township except John, the youngest, who was born in Canada."
