  • Notes 
    • Henry H. Clemmer, "son of Henry Clemmer, was born in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, July 18th, 1780. On November 17th, 1805, he was married to Magdalena, daugher of Abraham and Mary (Steiner) Clemens. She was born in Lower Salford, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, January 17th, 1784. After their marriage they moved to Bedminster, Bucks County, where he was rated as one of the "well-to-do" farmers, but owing to a defective title he lost nearly the whole of his money invested in the farm. After quitting the farm he moved to Philadelphia. In 1825, when his two brothers-in-law, Jacob and Abraham Clemens, moved to Canada, he accompanied them and settled near Berlin, (on the place now known as Dunke's old place, in Berlin) Waterloo County, Ontario, where he resided for a short time, then he moved to Preston, on the farm known as Henry Hagey's. Here he resided for four years, working at his trade, shoemaking. In December, 1830, they moved on the farm known as "Clemmer's Farm" two miles east of Berlin where they resided until their deaths. He died April 30th, 1851, and she died September 2nd, 1859. To them was born a family of seven children"
