    • Henry Wurm and Elizabeth Wurm emigrated to Canada in 1837 with their two sons. Henry was a carpenter. The family settled first in Berlin, Waterloo County, Ontario where their daughter, Elizabeth was born.

      The family moved to Zurich, Huron County, Ontario in 1856, leasing Lot 19, Con. 11, Hay Township which they bought in 1859 from the Canada Company. This lot is at the south edge of Zurich.

      OBITUARY FOR LATE ELIZABETH WURM-------90 YEARS OF AGE

      It is our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of the wife of Mr. Henry Wurm Sr., one of the oldest inhabitants of this village. The deceased was one of the earliest settlers in this area having settled here about 35 years ago. Of late years she has been afflicted with a cancer which caused her death last Saturday at the ripe old age of ninety years. The funeral took place last Tuesday morning and proceeded to the Lutheran Cemetery where the body was interred.

      Mr. Daniel Wurm and son of Matthias attended.
