from The Hamilton Spectator 1950. the column "Out of the Storied Past" by Mabel Burkholder "Some Pioneer Families of Ancaster Township - Smith, Book, and Kelly"

"John Book (1754-1827), came from the Electorate Palatine, in Germany, in 1786, settling in New Jersey. After the Revolution the family came to Canada, finaly locating in Ancaster Township, where they received a Crown grant of 200 acres. John's brother Jacob settled in this district, too, whose son Conrad lived where Fred Christie now resides. Another brother settled at Grismby. John Book built the second brick house this side of Niagara in 1797, using oxen to help make the brick, on his farm. Today the descendents live in that ancient house, the wives of the Parkin brothers'. John and Charity Book had ten children, George, Mary, Catherine, Anna Elizabeth, Henry, Adam, Phoebe, John Jr., Margaret and Christina. Most of these are buried in the Book burying-ground on the Parkin farm. The Books were honest, God-fearing folk, who believed in work; Books were made to work hard and not be read. It was not necessary to be educated, but, oh, how terribly needful to toil on the farm."

Ancaster Heritage pg 17
