  Notes for Cora M. Holden:
In the 1860 census I belive Cora is listed as M.E. Holden. The dates for the birth, more or less, line up with the dates that are provided in the 1900-1920 census information. There may have been other children. In the 1870 census the name is listed as Marcell. It could be that Marcell is her given name which she initialized later as her middle name and Cora could be her knickname.

Notes for Samuel Hassler:
Samuel Hossler, is supposed to have apparently backed some type of financial endeavor which either went bust or the partner took off with the money. In either event, Samuel, lost the "Hossler" farm. This forced him to move from Lancaster to Lebanon Co. where the Heilman's resided. Apparently, William H. Hossler, moved back to the area and bought a farm, of which there are a number of photographs, perhaps for retirement. Horace Hossler, was to have taken over the operations of the farm but severe illness and a felt calling to perform Christian Service in Ohio caused him to leave the farm. (Reported by Elizabeth Hossler).

Abraham Fast married Alvernon (Lovett) Reynolds after her first husband (C. Reynolds) travelled west and hadn't come home or been heard from. When Phoebe Anna Fast was young, Abraham set Alvernon up in a house in St. Mary's, Ohio. The reason for this is supposedly that Abraham's older children didn't like or approve of the marriage.

Marriage Notes for Abraham Holdeman and Elizabeth Curtis:
Married by Samuel Holdeman, Justice of the Peace.

Less than three years after marriage Abraham and Elizabeth moved to Noble Township, Branch County, Michigan, where a few Mennonite families had settled shortly before, and in a neighborhood where there had seldom been any religious services. As early as 1866 Mennonite ministers made trips to Branch County, and John M. Brenneman has reported a visit he made there when on November 20, 1867 a meeting was held at the home of Abraham Holdeman, where two persons were received into the church. The membership then numbered twenty-eight, and they were in need of a meeting-house. In 1873 Abraham moved with his family back to Elkhart County, Indiana near Wakarusa, and later near Nappanee, but returned to Branch County, Michigan. The final move was to Bloomingdale Township, Van Buren County, Michigan.

Abraham was a soldier in the Civil War, having enrolled, September 5, 1861 at LaPorte, Indiana for three years. He was a member of Company C, 9th Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and on December 26, 1862 at the battle of Lavargne was severely wounded. He was discharged September 15, 1864.

A daughter of Abraham, who had not reached her ninth birthday when her father died, wrote of him as follows: "He exacted obedience and might have been considered stern, but he never seemed so to me; he must have been quite patient , for he helped me all one summer after I had failed in the second grade. I do not remember any coercion about the study, for I distinctly remember that I was tempted to give up when I reached the place where the fine print began. It seems the decision to continue was entirely my own. When I was small I sat beside him a great deal on winter days and remember that, though I had two places to play, I was never allowed to have more than one strewn with paper dolls, etc. at a time. When I went to the other place the one where I had been playing had to be put in order first. I have always been thankful for that training in order. My father's word was counted good and he was able to say "It's alright" before his sudden death. He was one of those whose life was shortened as a result of his three years in the army." (Weaver, 1937)
