a. Note:   Levi L. Bechtel, son of George B., and Esther (Livergood) Bechtel, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, April 2, 1809. He came to Canada with Jacob S. Shoemaker in 1826. He was a miller by trade. In December, 1831, he was married to Magdalena, daughter of old Jacob and Mary (Erb) Schneider. She was born at Bloomingdale, Ontario, December 6th, 1806, and is the only one of her father's family of ten children, living, and one of the first white children born in this township. She is still enjoying the best of health and works around the house like a young woman. Her mind and memory are yet as strong as ever. When the writer paid her a visit, November 20th, 1894, she gave him the names of all her children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren, together with the dates of birth of each and dates of death of those who died; also gave him names of persons to whom each of her children and grand-children are married, and dates when such marriages took place. At present she has her home with her grand-daughter, Mrs. O. Wismer of Baden, Ontario. Soon after their marriage they moved on a farm two miles north of Bloomingdale, now in possession of John S. Bowman, where he died December 7th, 1868. Their family consisted of eight children. [Eby Book 1895] is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
