          Page: THE EARLY SETTLEMENT OF WATERLOO TOWNSHIP, ONTARIO,CANADA annotated by Lorna L. Bergey Apr 1992, Page 16
          Text: Tradition has handed down the following in relation to the ancestors of a few of the well-known settlers in Waterloo who came from PA, which is interesting. About two centuries ago Henry Bear and wife, natives of Switzerland, resolved to emigrate to America, in consequence of not being allowed to enjoy the religious priviledges which were so dear to them. Mr. Bear and wife, accompanied by the father-in-law, Theodore Eby, went down the river Rhine to the seaport from whence they were to sail for America. Mr. Eby there bade the emigrants farewell with the expectation of never seeing them agin, and started for home. However, on the way thither he also came to the conclusion to go to America, and in the course of a week's time had likewise embarked on a ship about to sail for the western continent. A favorable voyage and they landed at Manhattan, now NY, four days ahead of their son-in-law and famiy. When Mr. Bear and family arrived and found Mr. and Mrs. Eby ready to them on the American shore, they could scarcely credit their senses, but the meeting was a joyful one. Eventually the families settled in PA and are the ancestors of nearly all if not the whole of the Bear and Ebys who were among the early settlers of Waterloo.
