  • Notes 
    • It is believed he came to New York City directly from Germany; left the city to find work in the country as field hand. He later went to Canada where he met and married Elizabeth Herber (1 Feb.1849). In 1860 he applied for and received on 16 July a Crown Grant of 100 acres of forest land in Waterloo County, Wellesley Township, East Section, East Half Concession 6, Lot 6 - Waterloo county Ontario near Bamberg, Ont. He had to clear the trees from the land before he could farm it. There was an apple orchard on his property and he made hard cider which he enjoyed drinking. He is buried in St. John's cemetery in Bamberg which was property he donated. He was also orchestrated the building of a log church on his property beside the cemetery. There were sheds for horses behind the church and apple trees near the cemetery. The church burnt down around 1872-3. It was called the HAHN church. A new stone church was built across the road and renamed St. John's Lutheran Church. The new church was built on property belonging to Katherine Reichart....

      I was told that Johann Georg Hahn's farm is on the same side of the road as the cemetery and can be seen from the road just before the cemetery.

      After his death his sons Henry and John operated the farm for their mother, Elizabeth. Eventually John and Henry had a difference of opinion on the running of the farm. It was enough that John packed up and left the farm. Andrew, his brother drove him to the train station. He lived in the United States for the rest of his life.
