Waterloo County Marriage Register

Extracted from a list of marriages solemnized by F. W. Bindeman, a minister of the United Lutheran Church at Berlin, for the year ending 31st of December, 1858.

John Heckedorn, 24, born and residing Waterloo. Parents Jacob Heckedorn and Mary Muller.
Mary Good, 21, born and residing Woolwich. Parents Benjamin Good and Barbara Huber.
Witness James Kepka, Woolwich
On June 27, 1858.

The registration does not indicate where John Heckedorn (so spelled) was a resident of Waterloo Village or Waterloo Township, but the following places him in the township.

The Waterloo Region branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society provides extracts from the Berliner Journal for marriages for the year 1858. The edition of 13 July, 1858, has a notice of the marriage and dates the event to June 27 at Greenbushs (place unidentified). This marriage is shown as performed by Rev. F. W. Bindemann for John Heckedorn, so spelled, and Mary Good, both of Waterloo Township. This does not quite agree insofar as the marriage registration places Mary's residence in Woolwich.

We may perhaps be a little more specific in that Ezra Eby, in volume 1 of his 1895 work A Biographical History of Waterloo Township, pages 703 and 704, tells of this marriage. He states that Mary Good married John Heckedon (so spelled) on June 27th, 1858, and that they (by 1895) reside in the township of Maryborough in Wellington County.
DeathShe died on 22 February 1920 at Bridgeport, Waterloo Township, Waterloo Co., at age 82. 
BurialShe was buried on 25 February 1920 at Breslau Mennonite Cressman Cemetery, Breslau, Ont.. 
NoteSee volume 1 of Ezra Eby's 1895 work, A Biographical History of Waterloo Township, page 703. This identifies Mary Good as the daughter of Benjamin Good of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Benjamin came to Canada in 1831 and was married to Barbara Huber in 1834. Mary Good is shown as one of two children of Benjamin's first marriage, for Barbara Huber Good died in 1838. He then married Barbara Bergey and they had a number of other children.
