Haldimand County, Ontario, is situated 50 miles (81 km) southeast of Waterloo County, at the outlet of the Grand River into Lake Erie. Across Lake Erie to the south can be seen the ridge of Pennsylvania bordering the lake near Erie City. Having a heavy clay soil in many parts, it is suited to the cultivation of grain, hay, and livestock. It was one of the earliest Mennonite settlements of Ontario. To this area came tie Hoovers (Hubers) about 1790, from York County, Pennsylvania, or near Gettysburg. Fuller accounts will be found under Rainham, South Cayuga (MC).
