    It is assumed that the identification of Barbara's parents in this record is incorrect - either due to an error in the record-keeping or because she chose not to identify her real parents because she (a Mennonite) was underage and marrying a Lutheran in a Lutheran church. There appears to be no census record in Ontario in 1861 or 1871 for a Barbara Ringler other than the daughter of Albert and Katharina, and this marriage record indicates that the Barbara Ringler who married William Habermehl was born in Petersburg, Waterloo County, which is the same birth place given in the marriage or death records of 3 other children of Albert and Katharina Ringler. Additionally, her oldest child was named Albert.

    It is conceivable that Barbara's parents were Henry and Martha, and that they died before the 1861 census and Barbara was raised by Albert and Katharina, but there do not appear to be any Henry and Martha couples in Wilmot Twp, Waterloo County in the 1851 census (taken in 1852, shortly before Barbara was born).
