Notes  Samuel Y. Shantz, "was born January 15th, 1825. On March 11th, 1845, he was married to Esther Erb who was born April 6th, 1827. Soon after their marriage they moved on the farm where now is what is known as Shantz Station (Shantz Station was named after Mr. Shantz and was situated near where his farm buildings were located. The station was burnt many years ago but the place still goes by that name), where they resided until the Grand Trunk Railroad was built when he sold his farm to the company and moved to North Dumfries Township, not far from Blair, where he purchased a large farm. Here he resided until some twenty years ago when he purchased the farm (This farm belonged to Jacob M. Clemens, generally known as "Bachelor Jacob", and after his decease it was sold and Mr. Shantz purchased it), on which he now resides. It is about two and one-half miles south-west of Berlin. To them was born a large family. Names of children are as follows:
