  • Notes 
    • Abraham C. Clemmer, "was born in Bedminster, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, September 17th, 1815. When a young man he served his apprenticeship at shoemaking and followed the trade of his choice for some time, but owing to his father not being able to manage the farm, he quit the shoemaking business and went to farming. In the summer of 1845 he was married to Caroline, daughter of Morgan L. and Harriet (Babcock) Hermance. She was born July 2nd, 1828. After his marriage he rented the farm until the decease of his father when he purchased it. Here he resided until his death which took place January 9th, 1893. His widow is still having her home on the old farm. To them was born a family of eight children"

      CLEMMER - On the 9th of January, 1893, near Berlin, Waterloo Co., Ont., Bro. Abram C. Clemmer, aged 77 years, 3 months and 17 days. He was buried on the 12th in Eby's graveyard. Funeral services by Bish. D. Wismer at the home, at the meeting house by Bish. E. Weber in the German language from John 5: 24, 25 and Noah Stauffer in English from Rom. 6: 26. Bro. Clemmer was born in Montgomery Co., Pa., Sept. 17, 1815; in 1825 he came to Canada with his parents. He united with the Mennonite church in his youth and was ever a faithful member, serving for a long time as chorister of Eby's congregation. He also took a deep interest in Sunday school work, and as long as health permitted took an active part in the work. About six years ago he was affected by an epileptic stroke from the effects of which he continued to fail in health until about a year ago, when a second stroke brought on fostering of the brain, since which he has failed more or less rapidly until the Lord called him up higher. His constant trust in all his affliction, was in God and he waited patiently for the call that should free him from all that is mortal. He leaves a sorrowing wife, 5 sons and 3 daughters and many relatives and friends to mourn the loss of a devoted husband, a beloved father and an esteemed brother and friend.2a
