Introduction: This account of the Pfrimmer families of Canada is part of several separate volumes on the Pfrimmer family. Three of these constitute a three-volume

account of the Pfrimmer Families of Alsace. A separate volume, The Pfrimmer

Family of America has included both the descendants of Pfrimmers who came to

the United States and those who came to Canada. But that part of the family history has become quite large and hence now the section on the Pfrimmer Families of Canada has been organized as a separate volume to facilitate its reproduction and distribution. Hence this version of that part of the Pfrimmer family history. This edition of the Pfrimmer families of Canada has gone through a major revision over previous editions as a result of new discoveries. Formerly it was believed that Andreas Pfrimmer of Ontario was a brother of Valentin and Christian Pfrimmer, all sons of Valentin Pfrimmer and Catharina Schuster. However it has been discovered that this Andreas Pfrimmer was from an altogether different family and hence now in this edition instead of three brothers we present the information as two separate families, one of Valentin and Christian and the other of Andreas. Based on information in the genealogy, "The

Pfrimmer Families of Alsace," The two have no direct kinship connections in Alsace although they lived in the same village, and the fact that they settled initially in the same area of Ontario makes one highly suspicious that their migrations had some connection. The Pfrimmer family history has gone through several editions and

the more recent ones have been greatly facilitated by contacts with Pfrimmers on

electronic mail. Pfrimmer descendants not yet on the Pfrimmer electronic mail

system, PfMail, should contact Charles Pfrimmer, 551 Imperial Avenue, Melbourne, FL, 32935, e-mail <>. Charles Pfrimmer has also produced a web-site which includes considerable Pfrimmer information; the address

is <>. You are invited to check it out.

Corrections and additions to this account of the Canadian Pfrimmers is welcomed.

Two brothers, sons of Valentin Pfrimmer and Catharina Schuster of Eckwersheim, Alsace, near Strasbourg, came to America about l840 first to New York City and thence to western Ontario. Some remained there and others migrated to Manitoba, Minnesota and beyond. This Pfrimmer family was descended from one of the earliest identified Pfrimmer families of Eckwersheim, Alsace, Erhard Pfrimmer, whose great-great-great grandson, Andreas Pfrimmer married, as his second wife, Eva Wolff. One of their grandsons was Valentin Pfrimmer who married Catherine Schuster who lived in Eckwersheim and whose sons, in turn, Valentin and Christian migrated to Canada. Through Erhard Pfrimmer, these brothers were related to John George Pfrimmer who

migrated to America in l788 and lived in Harrison County, Ind. They were descended from Erhard Pfrimmer's second son, Andreas and John George Pfrimmer of Harrison County, Indiana from his first son, Johannes, both of whom lived in Eckwersheim.

l-l. Valentin Pfrimmer. Son of Andreas Pfrimmer and Eva Wolff. Born Feb. 8, l748; died l6 Pluvios VII (l797). Married (l) Eva Huckel; she was born Feb. l3, l748 and died Dec. 27, l775. They had three children, Johannes, Johannes and Eva. At the death of Eva Huckel witnesses included Hans Hickel, her father, and Andreas Pfrimmer, her father-in-law. Valentin Pfrimmer married (2) Catherina Riehl, daughter of Michael Riehl and Anne Rittor. She was born Nov. 25, l753 and died May 29, l8l4 in Eckwersheim. They had one child, Valentin. After the death of Valentin Pfrimmer, Catherina Riehl married Andreas Zimmer, son of Andreas Zimmer and Marie Wurz, in l804. He was born in l75l and died Feb. 2, l8l4.

2-2. Valentin Pfrimmer. Born Aug. l6, l774. There is no death record, but since a later child born in l777 was named Valentin it is assumed that this child died quite young.

2-3. Eva Pfrimmer. Born Aug. l7, l775 and died Mar. l9, l777. At her death witnesses included Andreas Pfrimmer, one grandfather, and Hans Hickel, the other grandfather.

Valentin Pfrimmer was a farmer. They had eight children, Catharina, Maria, Valentin, Andreas, Catharina, Christian, Eve and Theobaut. This Valentin Pfrimmer was commonly called "Hickel" and the the family of the parents, Valentin Pfrimmer and Catherine Schuster, as well as the son Valentin Pfrimmer and his family lived, according to the records of birth, marriage and death at "Maison #ll7" in


3-l. Catharina Pfrimmer. Born 2l Frimaire 4 (l796). Her birth record in Eckwersheim, Civil State Birth Records, "4 Frimaire 2l: Valentin Pfrimmer and Catharina Schuster, commonly Hickel: Catharina". [Since the Berstett death records indicate that a Catharina Pfrimmer, daughter of Valentin Pfrimmer and Catharina Schuster was born in l802 it is assumed the this daughter died and the Catharina Pfrimmer born in l802 was a second child by the name Catharina].

3-2. Maria Pfrimmer. Born 23 Brumaire 6 (l798). Birth record in Eckwersheim, Civil State Birth Records, "6 Brumaire 23: Valentin Pfrimmer and Catharina Schuster: Maria". Married Jean Roth, son of Jean Roth, farmer, and Marguerite Dossman, Mar. l5, l820, in Eckwersheim.

They had seven children, Maria Catherina, Michael, Carolina, Johannes, Sophia, Julie and Salome.

Valentin Pfrimmer was a witness to the marriage of his younger brother, Christian, to

Catharina Hermann, June 24, l835, in Reitwiller, Alsace. At that time he was a farmer, age 35, living in Eckwersheim. The family came to the United States, arriving in October l842 on the ship Kensington. The passengers included Valentine Pfrimmer, Sr., age 40, his wife, age 30, Margueretha, age l8 and the son Valentin Pfrimmer with wife and one son, aged 4 years. [This entry is not clear since the son, Valentin, was at that time only l6 years of age and most probably was not married and without a child]. Valentin Pfrimmer settled on Lot 23, Concession l of Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario; he is listed in the l87l Census returns for Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada (Reel C 62l) as age 7l, wife Mary, age 6l, and four grown unmarried

children. In Ontario Valentin Pfrimmer was described as a farmer.When the family came to Ontario the first settlement was to be near Stratford, but the land turned out to be very swampy and in those days the area was known as the Ellice Swamp or the Black Ash Swamp. So they moved north and west of this area toward Sebachs Hill in Sebringville. The Pfrimmer family lived at Sebringville until l887. At that time Otto Weinbach was the minister of the church at Sebringville and Otto Pfrimmer was probably named for him. The Pfrimmers moved to Colburn, Ontario and lived there until l899. Valentin Pfrimmer crossed the ocean seven times. He died at Colburn,

Ontario in l892 and was buried at Goderich, Ontario, in the Protestant graveyard on

the road to Benmiller. Records as to the children of George Valentin Pfrimmer come from the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church records in Sebringville, records which begin in l835. In l927 a new church was built to replace the old. The records are all written in old German script, and names included Pfrimmer, Pfrommer, Frommer and Zimmer.

Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, a technique she discovered in l946 and led to the

reversal of her own paralysis. She owned a laundry in Goderich, Ontario, the main

business of which was for three air force bases nearby. Ross Pfrimmer's

father, Earnest Theodore Pfrimmer, provided Theresa with funds to buy her laundry

building and the needed equipment. In the process of lifting laundry she developed

her paralysis and doctors said she would not recover. But she developed her own therapy system, took a post-graduate course at the College of Swedish Massage in Chicago, and established her first clinic in l949 in Goderich. In her clinic near Bayfield, Ontario she taught about 70 students between l97l and l980. The massage system was more popular in the U.S. rather than Canada where it was not recognized by the medical authorities. In l997 there were two authorized Pfrimmer schools in operation, one at the Pa. School of Muscle Therapy at Wayne, Pa. and the other, the Alexandria School of Scientific Theraputics at Alexandria, Indiana. There was also a Theresa C. Pfrimmer International Association of Deep Muscle Therapists, with phone number

Brothers. Their brother, Ross, worked for them at the mill. Russell learned the flour

trade and made flour for local groceries and bakeshops, such as Eddy's of Dungannon (l5 miles from Benmiller) Culbert's of Goderich (l0 miles from Benmiller) and Bartliff's of Clinton (20 miles from Benmiller), as well as the Purity Flour Mill.

grinding and mixing. Both Russell Pfrimmer and his father "E.T." were farmers and

the feed for their livestock was processed at the mill. In l97l Peter Ivy bought the mill from Elwyn and Russell and turned the building into a tourist attraction known as the Benmiller Inn. In the latter part of the 20th century it was a well-known tourist and resort attaction in Ontario.

The Family of Andreas Pfrimmer and Catharina Pfrimmer of Eckwersheim, Alsace

and Sebringville, Ontario, Canada

A second Pfrimmer family from Eckwersheim, Alsace, lived in Ontario in the neighborhood of Sebringville, west of Stratford, arriving in Canada in l847, according to the obituary of their daughter Caroline. This was Andreas Pfrimmer and his wife, Catherine, born Pfrimmer, who were born, married and had nine children in Eckwersheim. The first record of the family in Canada is in the census of l850 for Downie township, living on but not owning lot 22 concession 2. A tenth child, Ludwig, was born in Ontario. An extensive record of Pfrimmers in Eckwersheim indicates that this family has no immediate connection with the brothers, Valentin and Christian Pfrimmer, already settled in the Sebringville area. Neither of the Pfrimmer ancestries of Andreas or his wife Catherine, overlap with that of Valentin or Christian Pfrimmer, but are traced to two of the four distinct groups of Pfrimmer families of the l7th century and later.Their family record follows: Andreas Pfrimmer, son of John Georg Pfrimmer and Eva Duringer, and a descendant of the l7th century Anton Pfrimmer lineage, was born 8 Germinal VIII (l800). He Married Catherine Marie Pfrimmer, daughter of Jacques

Pfrimmer and Eva Hirt, Aug. ll, l825. She was a member of the l7th Jorg Pfrimmer

lineage and was born 29 Vendemaire XIV. In l828 Andreas Pfrimmer was a culti-

vateur living in maison #60-bis." Their marriage record in Eckwersheim: "Aug.

ll, l825: Andre Pfrimmer and Catherine Marie Pfrimmer. He was a son of Jean

George Pfrimmer [vulgo Clausbauer, laborer at Eckwersheim, age 7l]. She was a

daughter of Jacques Pfrimmer [laborer at Eckwersheim, age 64] and Eve Hirth.

She was born 29 Vendemaire, year XIV. Witnesses: Andre Pfrimmer, laborer, age

55 and uncle of the groom; Jean Pfrimmer, laborer, brother of the groom, age

40; Andre Hirth, laborer, 53, uncle of the bride and Jacques Jundt, laborer, 40, uncle of the bride." The Pfrimmer genealogy of the parents in the book, "The Pfrimmer Families of Alsace" are, respectively, for Andreas Pfrimmer, page 55 and for Catherine Pfrimmer, page 269. The generational numbering here follows from the numbering in "The Pfrimmer Families of Alsace."There are census records for this family in Ontario for l85l and l86l as follows: l85l: l male (30-60 married); l female (30-40 married); l

male (l4- l8); 2 females (l0-l4); 2 females (5-l0); l female (2-5); l male (1-2);

l male (under 1 year). l86l: Andreas Pfrimmer, laborer, age 64 and Catherine

age 54 with daughter Mary age l5 and son Ludwig age ll. Andreas died in

Ontario Jan. l0, l867, age 65 years, 8 months, l3 days, for a birth date of Apr. l7,

l80l. In l85l Andreas Pfrimmer lived on a property in Downie Township, but
