[NI014871] The publication "The Merchant-Millers of the Humber Valley" by Sidney Thomson Fisher states that David Holly emigrated to Upper Canada in 1807 with his wife, nine children, a large herd of cattle and six wagons containing a considerable amount of property. On July 30, 1807 he bought William Chewett's 72 acre lot on the east bank in the grassland area (Weston). On Sept. 29, 1807 he extended his east-bank property by obtaining a lease of the Crown Reserve, Lot 23, Consession 7 west of Yonge Street. David Holly was given a 99 year lease of Lots 22 in 1817 and lot 23 in 1825. This property was given to his son-in-law David Christian Troyer in 1812. On March 17,1816, David settled on the west bank directly opposite and built the family homestead with the home, farm, barns and mill.

Letter was not sent but found among his effects after his death. It lists a sister who died "many years ago" leaving two children, a younger brother who was never married and a half-or-step-sister who had no children.

[NI014889] A 1699 list of Mills and Millers in the judicial district of Reichenbach shows 19 functioning water-run flour mills (down from a peap of 23 before the disruption of the Swedish War of 1618-1648, known also as the Thirty-Years War). The fourth mill in the Fischborn was listed as "Velten Kemps modo Johannes Schneiders Muhle".

[NI014955] One of the first settlers in the area arriving in 1814. Indenture dated Sept. 2, 1816 and deeded Sept. 18, 1817 for NE1/4 of R5,T9,S18 (location of Cem. L-25). For 20, Jacob owned 520 acres in the Chestnut Ridge, Ohio area. Hilda Troyer (Troyer Family History) states Jacob Troyer came to Ohio in 1814, and it is not known which of his two wives, Catherine Mast or Maria Wengard, made the trip with him. They were parents of eleven children. (Update June 1993) Doris Troyer of Akron, Ohio: acording to Mary Winger's father's will dated June 2, 1810, his daughter was Mary, wife of Jacob Troyer, therefore it definitely was Mary who accompanied her husband Jacob to Ohio. Mary signed deeds in the 1820's and 30's, but had died previous to 1844.

[NI015002] Brian Lee Cooper - Smiles. Laughter. Frustration. Determination. Tears. Ice Cream! All of these words describe Brian. This past year, he had the capacity to go through frightening breathing episodes several times a day and still give you a smile when you tucked him into bed at night. He had the patience to sit through his mother's guessing games until she hit on the right answer. He could hear his #1 hero, Daddy, coming home long before the rest of the family could. He could sit still while his little brother climbed all over him in his wheelchair and on the floor. And he looked forward to the early morning chats with his sister cuddled into his waterbed beside him. Brian had a quick sense of humor and a very infectious giggle. He always tried to do what we asked of him even though it usually ended in failure. He lived with greater frustration than many of us experience in a lifetime. He had no motor control over his body except for a smile that was always ready to shine. Brian's life was also spent teaching. He taught his school mates that it's okay to be different yet still the same. He challenged his teachers to new heights as we mainstreamed him through school. He was a smart boy who loved reading best. He has continued to teach in his death. School let out early the day of his funeral and many of his classmates were there. A first for many of the children, it became an opportunity for them to see that death is not a scary thing, how could it be with balloons flying! (Balloons were tied to his coffin and released at the gravesite.) Enough time has passed that we have almost forgotten the day to day struggle of dealing with Brian's handicap, yet his smiles and laughter, we seem to have heard just yesterday. We miss Brian a great deal and he's left a big gap in our day to day lives but we thank God for putting an end to his frustration and for freeing him from his body. For we truly believe that he is now in Heaven, running and talking up a storm and keeping an eye on us all. - Ann Cooper Brian was like a boyfriend to me. Because I was always kissing and hugging him. I loved him with all my heart, I still love him more than anything. I always got scared when he passed out or got blue. We've had so much fun together, but maybe he's better off in Heaven. He can walk and do whatever he wants to up there. I'd just like to tell him something-that I love him even if he is dead. I love you Brian Lee Cooper. - Sarah Cooper

At the age of 7, he came to PA with his father, bro. & sis.s on the ship BROTHERHOOD, landing near Philadelphia on 3 Nov 1750. A story was told by others on the same ship that the trip took 80 days. They came close to land within abt 60 days, but a severe storm drove them out to sea again & it took 20 more days to land. If true, this was a long hard journey. His father, older bro., 2 sis.s, an uncle & family were on the ship with some other Breth. families coming to Amer. because of religious persecution. Since the Bloughs were a religious people, it is thought that they also may have come for the same reason. From material by S. S. Blough: "Christian Blough d 1777, abt age 34, leaving a widow & young family. It is thought the youngest b after his death. Several stories have come down about the needy conditions of the family. From J.E.

"Another story shows how low their food supply must have been. One day the young widow noticed some hogs rooting up something the woods, of which they seemed to be fond. Upon investigation she found some roots, unfamiliar to her. Since she didn't know whether they were edible, she cooked a few & ate them herself. When there were no ill effects, she cooked more for the family & later found them to be wild artichoke." Family Bible as well as tax lists & orphans Court proceedings list her as Elizabeth.

He came from eastern PA when a young man, & took up a considerable tract of land in the northeast portion of Milford. In the course of time He divided his land into 4 farms, one of which he gave away in order to get a neighbor. He was obliged to go to the vivinity of Bedford for milling, going & returning with packhorses through the woods. In his huning exploits he would often camp on the mountain & remain there alone for wks. On one occasion he & his dog Tiger--"Tige," for short treed a panther. Dull fired & wounded the beast, which immediatly sprang from the tree & attacked him. As was his custom, he carried a butcher knife & a hatchet. He grasped the hatchet & struck the panther, & the hatchet came off the handle, leaving the latter in his hand. The savage beast rushed furiously upon Mr. Dull & tore his hunting shirt from his body. Tiger came bravely to his master's aid & attacked the panther in the rear. This movement diverted the panther's attention & Dull found the opportunity to use his knife with good effect. After a long & terrible contest the panther was killed. Mr. Dull was terribly sctatched & bitten & Tiger was so nearly used up that he had to be carried home. History of Somerset Co.

[NI015684] Joseph Troyer and his wife Maria/Mary (Kauffman) migrated with 10 children to Bunker Hill Ohio from Liberty PA in 1811 in a Conestoga wagon. The land was wilderness, and it was necessary to fell trees to build a cabin, and reclaim the land for planting. They were pioneers of that area, and raised a large family.

[NI015687] There are a number of stories about this Henry Troyer. One that he was adept at running, and could out-distance three Indians in a race. The other is that he was out of funds, and the family needed flour. The miller asked for the money for the flour, and Henry said, "I don't have the money, can't I have credit? No, the miller said, I'm giving no more credit!" "Will you trade, will you take a bear skin for the flour?" "Have you got a bear skin?" the miller asked. "No, said Henry, but you
just hold the flour for me, and I'll be back with the bear skin." About evening Henry came back with the bear skin, and took his flour. "Betsy and I will be all right now, we have meat and we have flour. Elizabeth his daughter was evidently his cook at the time. The original account is found in the Somerset Co., History.

[NI015692] Michael Troyer Jr. lived in Brothers Valley on Buffalo Creek. A log cabin was still standing into the twentieth century, with some evidence of a previous structure behind the cabin, presumed to be a former cabin. In 1816, the family moved to Ohio and settled in German Twp. In 1825, when Holmes Co. originated they were living in an area of Clark Twp. called "Troyer Valley". Michael purchased six quarter sections of land. He made his home on land previously owned by his son "pioneer" John Troyer.

[NI015693] Letter from Leta (Becker) Blindbury written to Blanch (Fischer) Davis. Exerpts from a book published by Egbert Americus Owen , Commercial Essayist. 1898. Pioneer sketches of Long Point Settlement or Norfolk's Foundation Builders and their Family Genealogies. 'Long Point, Norfolk Co. Ontario, Canada' Printed in Toronto Canada by William Briggs (Wesley Building), Montreal by C.W. Coats, and Halifax by S.F. Huestis. Dedicated to "The grand children and Great grandchildren of the brave old pioneers who erected the first cabins and built the first log heaps in GLORIOUS OLD NORFOLK - this volume is lovingly dedicated by the author. Entered according to Act of the Parliament of Canada in the year 1898 by E. A. Owen at the Department of Agriculture. Historical facts taken from 'Historical sketches of the County of Elgin' by C.O. Erantinger and K.W. McKay.
Up to within a little more than a century and a half of the time when Dr. Troyer erected his log cabin on the flats just East of Port Rowan, the district comprising the County of Norfolk and adjoining Counties had never been traversed by a European at least history is silent to any such visitation previeus to the year 1626. At this time our county was a portion of the territory owned and occupied by a nation of aborigines known to the French as 'Neutrals' The neutral country included all of the western peninsula of Ontario beyond a line drawn from the west end of Lake Ontario to the mouth of the Maitland river. They were called neutrals on account of the strict neutrality maintained during the wars between the Hurons and the Iroquois. DOCTOR TROYER AND HIS BIG WITCH TRAP. About a mile and a half East of Port Rowan the lake road is crossed by a deep ravine. At some time past this ravine was caused by the action of water, and the earth thus washed out, suddenly, no doubt, was carried out into the Bay, forming an immense bar, which in course of time, sent up a growth of vegetation. This bar, or flat, contains about fifteen acres, and has been cultivated for more than a hundred years. The oldest apple trees in Norfolk stand, unquestionably, on this flat. This flat is only a few rods from the public road, but the winding course of the ravine shuts off the traveller's view of the old orchard, the building, and the flat itself. This secluded spot was the home of Doctor Troyer, when every other portion of Norfolk was an unbroken wilderness. There is a beginning to every earthly state or condition, and as there are no existing records to prove the contrary, it is perfectly safe to assume that the log cabin erected by Dr. Troyer on this flat, was the first human habitation erected in Norfolk by a permanent settler. Many people imagine that the public land records show who the first settlers were, but this is not so. The public records show who obtained the first land patents in a certain locality, but they do not show who may have squatted on lands in that locality previously. This question involves but a year or two at the most, and it is quite possible that one or more may have come with Troyer, but that no settlement antedates that made by him may well be assumed as a fact. When Fred Mabee built the first log cabin in Charlotteville, at the foot of the hill overlooking Turkey Point, Dr. Troyer lived on this flat. When Jabez Collver erected the first cabin in Windham, and before the first log was laid on the ground where the Town of Simcoe stands, Dr. Troyer was keeping house on the sunny, fruitful flat, and when old father Abraham Smith got ready to build his first cabin, Dr. Troyer took the day off, and went down to give him a lift. Years before Daniel Hazen surveyed the township of Walsingham, the smoke had ascended from Dr. Troyers cabin on this flat, and when Major Backhouse first set foot on Walsingham soil, Dr. Troyer was looked upon as an old settler. As near as can be ascertained, Dr. Troyer built his pioneer cabin not long after the year 1790. He was of German descent, and came, probably from Pennsylvania. Dr. Troyer was Norfolk's first medical practitioner. His patients were "far between" and in his case it may be truthfully said that he had an extended practice. He was insanely superstitious, being a hopeless and confirmed beliver in witchcraft. This belief caused him a world of trouble and made him ridiculously notorius. The name Dr. Troyer and the term witches are so interwoven in the minds of the old people that they cannot think of one without being reminded of the other. The old Doctor was terribly persecuted by these witches. All his troubles of mind and body were attributed to the witches who existed in human form and possessed miraculous powers for producing evil. He looked upon certain of his neighbors as witches, one of the most dreaded being the widow of Captain Edward McMichael. Mrs. McMichael was a very cleaver woman, and to be considered a witch by the Doctor was highly amusing to her. She was a woman of strong mind and great courage, and it is said she frequently visited the lonely ravine and made grimaces at the poor old Doctor from some recess or clump of bushes, just for the pleasure it gave her to torment him. He was a great deer hunter, but if he chanced to meet Mrs. McMichael when starting out hunting, he would turn about and return home. He kept a number of horse shoes over the door of his house, and at the foot of his bed, a huge trap was bolted to the floor where it was set every night to catch the witches. The jaws were about three feet long, and when shut, about 2 1/2 feet high. Strange as it may appear, Dr. Troyer believed all this, yet aside from all this was considered a very sane man. He was described as wearing a long flowing white beard. He lived to be 99 years old, and just before his death, he shot a hawk, off-hand, from the peak of the barn roof. (Notes from Hilda Troyer: John and brother Christian removed themselves from Pennsylvania in 1789, following years of being labeled Loyalists by the American Patriots, and war, and taxation, and land grabbing by the Patriots.) John first erected a cabin at Long Point. In his petition to claim land in Canada he states "the Americans took all my farm, and lands".
