  • Notes 
    • Susannah Erb, "daughter of Christian and Maria (Scherch) Erb, was born March 17th, 1762, and died January 22nd, 1844. In 1781 she was married to Jacob Brubacher who was born June 11th, 1758, and died of yellow fever, August 31st, 1793. After their marriage they moved on his father's homestead in Elizabeth (part of Warwick) Township, Lancaster County, where they had seven children, namely:... She remained a widow for upwards of fifty years and raised her family save John, the second of the children, who died of small-pox when a lad of nine years of age. Two of her children, Mary and John, moved to Canada. Mary was married to Bishop Benjamin Eby and came to Canada in 1807 (see family of Benjamin Eby). John was married to Catharine Sherk and came to Canada in 1816 (see family of John Brubacher). In 1809 the mother paid a visit to her daughter, Mary, and her brothers and sisters who had moved here a few years previously, besides her parents who had their home with old Christian Schneider. Here she remained until September of the same year when she returned to her family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In the year 1816 she paid her second visit to this part of the country. This time her youngest son, John, accompanied her. He was unmarried. She remained here two years with her son for whom she kept house when he commenced on his farm which was composed of lot No. 59, German Company's Tract. After his marriage she returned to the land of her fathers to spend her remaining days in serving her Lord more fully so that when the death summons should call her away, she would be ready to meet her Lord in peace. It is related that on her last journey across the Alleghany Mountains she noticed a large rattle snake lying in the middle of the road. She dismounted her pony and with a well aimed blow killed the dangerous serpent, thus proving herself to be a woman of courage."
