  • Note: Hannes Brech, the ancestor of the family in this country, was a native of Switzerland and emigrated to this country at a very early date. He was of Mennonite ancestry, and in order to escape the threatened destruction of their party in Europe, he, with others, selected Pennsylvania as their place of refuge. Tradition has it that the old ancestor emigrated to America about the year 1751 and settled in what is now Dauphin (From the late Mrs. Samuel Eby, a grand-child of the old ancestor) County, Pennsylvania, where he died, probably in 1780. It is impossible at so late a date to ascertain the names of all their children, however, we know of two, a daughter named II Elizabeth, married to one named Betzner, who never resided in Canada, neither is there anything known of their descendants; and a son named II John. [Eby Book 1895]
