  • Notes 
    • Benjamin Rosenberger, "son of Abraham Rosenberger, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. About the year 1796, he was married to Elizabeth, daughter of John and Barbara (Fried) Biehn. In 1801 they with others moved to Canada and settled in Waterloo County, a little north of Preston, on the farm where the late Henry Hagey resided. Here they had a family of six children".
