  • Notes 
    • John Biehn " was a native of Switzerland where he was born in 1737. In 1742 his parents moved to America and settled in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where he was raised. He was married to Barbara Fried who was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1744. In 1800 they with their family of grown children moved to Canada and settled one mile west of Doon, Ontario, on the farm now in possession of Aaron S. Biehn, their great-grand-son. Here the old progenitor purchased a large tract of land still known as "Biehn's Tract." She died in 1807, aged 63 years, and he died in 1811, aged 74 years. .."
