In 1809 Abraham Lederach Clemens of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, migrated to Upper Canada. He was John's GG Grandfather and the first of his direct line to migrate to Upper Canada, settling in what is now Cambridge (formerly Preston), Waterloo County, Ontario. Abraham had two sons, Levi and Christian, who later migrated to Michigan, settling in Allegan and Kent Counties. They were GG Uncles of John's and the start of his American Clemens families.
