Note: Henry Bower one of the original settlers of this family, came from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where he was born May 3rd, 1780. On November 23rd, 1806, he was married to Elizabeth Marias who was born November 29th, 1783. In the year 1822 they moved to Canada and settled at Preston, Ontario. He was both a carpenter and mechanic by trade. During the summer months he was engaged in putting up buildings in and around Preston, many of which are still standing as a memorial of our worthy old ancestor, Mr Brower. During the long winter months he was busily engaged in making spinning wheels for the young ladies� (now our grandmothers) of Waterloo. The writer's mother used to have a spinning wheel made by Mr Brower. His initials "H. B. 1831" were stamped on the end of frame. Some years after his arrival in Canada he took up auctioneering at which he did quite a business for a number of years. His advantage over other auctioneers was that he was capable of conducting sales in either English or German language. After their arrival in this county they settled at the lower end of Preston where they resided until her death which took place March 8th, 1861. After the death of his aged partner he made his home for a few years with his daughter, Elizabeth. From here he went to the home of his daughter, Mary (Mrs. Isaac Clemens), where he spent the evening of his life in comfort. He died December 10th, 1874, aged 94 years, 7 months, and 7 days. To them was born a family of nine children. [Eby Book 1895]
