Notes  Henry Weber," son of Heiner Weber and brother to old Christian Weber, was born in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1728. He was married to a Miss Hershey, sister to his brother Christian's wife. They resided in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on the old Weber homestead. To them were born several children, namely: III Henry, III Daniel, and three daughters whose names were not received. We shall here follow the descendants of III Henry Weber who was born in 1757 and was married to Veronica Hershey.* They resided on the old Weber homestead near Blue Ball, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. To them was born a family of seven children, namely: IV Benjamin, IV Abraham, IV David, IV Henry, IV Franklin, IV Daniel, and IV John. Of the named family the three sons, David, Franklin, and John, never lived in Canada. Their descendants are to be found in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, while the remaining four sons, namely, Benjamin, Abraham, Henry, and Daniel, moved to Canada during the beginning of the present century and settled in Waterloo County, Ontario, where their numerous descendants are to be found. We shall now give their descendants in their proper order."

It seems the Webers took an extra fancy for the Hershey women.

* A niece to the two Hersheys married to the two elder Webers.
