bullet  General Information:

In 1871 Johann was residing in Preston Village (now just Preston) in Waterloo. It is known that his daughter, Catherine, was born in Canada (birthplace of simply Ontario is given). The family must have immigrated prior to 1839 since it is also noted in the 1871 Canadian Census that Johann was born in Germany.

Johann's trade is listed as "Potter" in the 1871 Census of Canada.

bullet  Research Information:

The Stuempfle-Roos family settled in the county of Waterloo...specifically the village of Preston - at the time called Preston Village. Preston is a suburb of Kitchener, Ontario.

Preston Village, now just simply called Preston, was a known place of migration for German immigrants in the early 19th century. The town of Kitchener, in the County of Waterloo, was once known as "New Berlin" due to the influx of German immigrants during this point in history.

The town of "New Berlin" had its name formally changed to the town of "Kitchener" at some point during the First World War; primarily due to the stigma associated with being German at this time in history.

Johann's grandson, Albert Peter Quentin, was schooled in Theology in the town of New Berlin. This fact is noted on the Death Record of Albert's Father, Charles Peter Quirmbach. Albert Peter claimed his Father's body upon his death in 1895; therefore, his rank and name were noted on the certificate.

Joahnn had been ill for 4 weeks prior to his death according to his death certificate.


Johann married Catherine Roos, daughter of Jacob Roos and Unknown. (Catherine Roos was born on 4 Jan 1816 in Alsace, France and died on 18 May 1902 in Ellen Street, (Little Berlin) Kitchener, Ontario.) The cause of her death was Old Age.
