12 MARTIN CLIMENHAGA b 27 Jun 1794 at Pennsylvania, USA d 6 Oct 1876 at Bertie Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA of old age[6], son of Johann Henrich Wilhelm Kleimenhagen [Henry Climenhagen] and Barbary, m abt 1815 ELIZABETH DAMUDE b 29 Dec 1790 at Pelham Twp., Lincoln Co., Upper Canada[7] d 18 Jun 1853 at Bertie Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA,[8] dau of Henry Damude and Anna Wenger. Martin, a farmer, inherited the old family homestead in Lot 13, Concession 10 in Bertie Twp. He was a Tunker minister. It is said that he frequently preached barefoot at small gatherings in simple home surroundings and baptized by immersion in flowing water. His apparel was very plain, homemade of homespun cloth. Martin and Elizabeth would often drive an oxen cart to Fonthill [Turner’s Corners in Thorold Twp.] by way of Lundy’s Lane (a distance of 30 miles) and the Damude’s of Fonthill would treat him with dried cherries instead of candy.[9] Martin and Elizabeth are laid to rest at Black Creek Pioneer Cemetery, Bertie Twp., Welland Co., Ontario.

13 HENRY CLIMENHAGA b 6 Feb 1798 at Willoughby Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA, d 20 Apr 1879 at Bertie Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA, [10] son of Johann Henrich Wilhelm Kleimenhagen [Henry Climenhagen] and Barbary, m 23 Jan 1826 at Stamford Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA SUSANNAH ‘(SUSAN)’ PICKHART b 1813 d Jul 24 1881 at Bertie Twp., Welland Co., Ontario, CA, [11] dau of John Pickhart. Although in 1825 he received his 100 acre parcell [lot 14, Con 11] in Bertie Twp., Henry most likely lived with his wife and family in Willoughby Twp. [12][13] Records indicate that Henry sold 50 acres of this parcel to Peter Pickhart in 1826, and the remaining 50 acres to John Pickart in 1838. [14][15] It is believed that Henry may have re-located to Wainfleet Twp. for a time, but was back and living in Bertie Twp. by 1861 until the time of his death. Although Henry is listed as buried at Maple Lawn Cemetery in Wainfleet Twp., his burial place is actually unknown. It is just as likely that he is laid to rest at Black Creek Pioneer Cemetery in Bertie Twp. where his parents, brothers, sister and at least one of his daughters are buried. Henry was a farmer and a Tunker.

    I have found that my 3 x great grandmother is Anna Climenhaga. Her death certificate shows her to be the Mother of Sarah, who is my 2 x great grandmother, born December 12, 1829, and died April 3, 1911. Sarah was married to Christian Hoover. It reads that Anna was married to John Siner? (Sider) I would like a confirmation of this information if possible.

    • James Climenhage says:

      Hi Bernice. Sarah (Sider) Hoover’s death registration names her parents as Anna Climenhage and John Sider. I assumed the marriage date came from the book “Two hun­dred years with the Siders” by Ron and Harold Sider, but this is incorrect. I haven’t been able to find the source information yet–I’ll keep looking.

      • Bernice says:

        Thanks for the reply. FYI Sarah (Sider) Hoover is buried at Heise Hill Brethren in Christ Church, Gormley Ontario. She is in the “Old Tunkard Burying Ground”, location 1K17. This is a new line I have found in my genealogy & am very curious to dig further on back. I am so fortunate to have found this website with all my “family” info. on it. Regards, Bernice
