Gregorius Dettweiler - Tradition has it that the ancestor of this family was a native of Switzerland and came to America at a very early date and was one of the first settlers of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. According to the information received from the late Rudolph Dettweiler of Bloomingdale, Ontario, the old pioneer's name was I Gregorius* and his family consisted of five children, but he gave the names of only three, namely: II Joseph, II Hanes, and II Heinrich**. We find the name Dettweiler mentioned in the early documents pertaining to Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
