25 January 1917

A record of the Clement Stochr (later Starr) family, who emigrated from Baden, Germany to the United States about 1835 and who subsequently migrated to Waterloo County, Ontario, Canada.

This account seems very accurate. The names and dates agree closely with the 1851, 1861 and 1871 Canadian Census records for Wellesley Township, Waterloo County, Ontario, Canada. Their second oldest son Ambrose Starr was likely the father of Clement Starr [01463], who apparently emigrated to Beal City, Michigan in company with Joseph Voisin [00021].
