HERALD OF TRUTH , Vol. XXXI, No. 9, May 1, 1894

On the 23d of January, 1894, of cancer, Bro. Peter D. Mishler, bishop of the Oakhill Congregation in Lane Co., Oregon, aged 47 years, 6 months and 15 days. His funeral at the Oakhill M.H., on the 25th, was largely attended. Funeral services were conducted by Jacob Schrag in German and by Pre. Laidlaw in English. Bro. Mishler was confined to his bed about three months, and suffered very much, but he was fully resigned to his Lord. It was his earnest desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. He will be sadly missed in the church in which he so faithfully labored, in the family, to which he was so warmly attached, and in the neighborhood, where he was universally esteemed. He leaves his wife, eight children and two grandchildren to mourn his death, yet their weeping is but for the absent body, for they feel that the soul has gone to its eternal rest.

HOSTETLER.-Moses J. Hostetler was born in Somerset county, Penna., June 9, 1812. He was one of eleven children born to John and Magdalena Hochstetler, and with his parents came to Ohio. After a lapse of two years he returned to Pennsylvania and was married, January 7, 1838, to Elizabeth Mast. After residing three years in Pennsylvania he moved to Holmes Co., Ohio. Here he resided twenty-three years, and 1864 moved to Lagrange Co., Ind. where he lived until his death, April 17, 1894. He lived in the marriage relation fifty-one years when he was separated by the death of his companion, August 9, 1889.
The deceased has been a member of the Amish church since 1838, living a faithful and exemplary Christian life until his death. He left a bright testimony, a few days before his death, of the assurance of an eternal home in heaven.
He is the father of thirteen children, ten sons and three daughters, four of which, one son and three daughters, have preceded him to the spirit world. He has seventy-three grand-children, fifty-two are still living, and has thirty-nine great-grandchildren, four of whom are dead, making an offspring of 125 souls.
Funeral services wee held at the old home on April 19. Preachers Eli Borntrager, and David Kauffman of Lagrange Co. and preacher Yoder of Nebraska conducted the services from John 5:19-31, 1 Cor. 15:20-58 and 1 Thes. 4:13-18. His remains were laid at rest in the Yoder cemetery. J.J.H.

EBY.-On the 5th of April, 1894, near Freeport, Ill., of lung trouble, Mathias Eby, aged 84 years, 4 months and 5 days. Bro. Eby was for many years a faithful minister and bishop in the Mennonite church, and after it became necessary that he should lay aside his ministerial work he was seldom absent from divine service if able to go. He was fully resigned to the will of God, and peacefully fell asleep in Jesus, with the blessed assurance of entering into the rest prepared for the people of God. His body was consigned to the grave in the Mennonite cemetery on the 7th. Funeral services conducted by C.C. Snavely, J.S. Shoemaker and A.L. Myers. Text, John 5:28,29.

"A longing for home comes stealing o'er us,
As our friends pass over to the better land.
As one by one they join in the chorus,
Singing the songs of God and the Lamb."

EHRISMAN.-On the 8th of April, 1894, in Danvers Twp., McLean Co., Ill., of consumption, Mary Ehrisman, aged 27 years, 5 months and 23 days. She was sick about two years. Her parents and their four remaining children mourn the loss of a dearly beloved daughter and sister, yet they mourn not as those who have no hope, for she had made her peace with God about two years before her death. Her last words were, "I am going now." Her remains were laid to rest on the 10th in Imhoff's graveyard, followed by many relatives and friends. Funeral services by Joseph King and Joseph Stuckey.

MILLER.-On the 4th of April, 1894, at Walnut Creek, Ohio, of old age, Magdalena Miller, widow of Isaac Miller, aged 84 years, 7 months and 13 days. Buried in the Walnut Creek Mennonite cemetery followed by a large number of friends and relatives. Funeral services by David Beachey of Sugar Creek, Ohio, and Fred. Mast of Marten's Creek, Ohio. Sister Miller was esteemed by all who knew her. She was very regular in her attendance at church, and took great pains to have her own and all other children educated in the way of Christ. She was married twice, her first husband was John Christner. To them were born four children, of whom 3 survive her. Her second husband was Bro. Isaac Miller, with whom she lived but a short time when he died. We all hope to meet her where there will be no more parting, but where will be joy everlasting.

BOLLER.-Ella McIlree Boller was born Oct. 11, 1862; died March 16, 1894, aged 31 years, 5 months and 5 days. Deceased was reared in and near Riverside, Iowa, and leaves many friends to mourn her untimely death, caused by that most dread disease, consumption, after a long and tiresome illness, which she bore nobly to the last. She leaves a dear husband, a little 5 year old daughter, father and mother, brother and a sister to mourn her death. She also spoke feelingly to friends and told them to live as she did and meet her in heaven. She was a noble exponent of the powers of unselfish love, seeking happiness only by contributing to the happiness of others. Her life was pure, calm and peaceful. The funeral was held Sunday forenoon the 18th, at the M.E. church, of which denomination she was a member. The funeral sermon was preached by Pre. Woodson, who spoke very comfortingly, after which the remains were placed in their last resting place in the Riverside cemetery.

"'Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love has bound the heart;
'Tis hard, so hard to speak the words,
"We must forever part.'

A dear one has gone from our circle,
On earth we shall see her no more;
She has gone to the Savior in glory,
And all her afflictions are o'er."

SHELLENBERGER.-On the 1st of April, 1894, in Juniata Co., Pa., at the residence of his cousin, Jacob Shellenberger, Amos Shellenberger, of throat trouble, aged 66 years, 7 months and 7 days. He was a son of Joseph and Hannah Shellenberger, who moved years ago to Freeport, Stephenson Co., Ill. He was sick six weeks. Since his wife's death he had his home mostly with his daughter, Mrs. Ann Pitensberger, in Ohio. About 8 months ago he came from Ohio to Juniata Co., Pa., to remain. His son, Ellis R., of Broad Junction, Ohio, came to Juniata Co., to attend the funeral at the Lost Creek graveyard on the 4th. Funeral services at Lost Creek by Samuel Gayman and William Graybill.

HARTMAN.-Adam Hartman was born near Kaisers-lautern, Rhein Kreis, Bavaria, Germany, Dec. 18, 1811; died of the infirmities of old age, at South West, Elkhart Co., Ind., at the residence of his youngest son, Emanuel, March 21, 1894, aged 82 years, 3 months and 3 days. He came with his parents to America in 1832, settling in Lancaster Co., Pa., thence going to Ashland Co., Ohio in 1835, where in 1836 he was joined in wedlock to Elizabeth Ramer at the age of 25 years. He moved his family to Elkhart Co., in 1849, first settling in Harrison Twp., where they resided about 4 years; then they moved to Union Twp., where he resided 44 years, watching the giants of the forest disappear and mother earth to blossom as the rose as settlement and civilization came apace. At the age of 15 years he united with the Mennonite church, and lived a consistent member until the messenger of death summoned him home to a world "where the wicked ceased from troubling and the weary are at rest." He was the father of ten children, eight of whom are now living all of whom were present at the funeral except one daughter, Elizabeth Nettrour, of Newton, Kansas. There are also 37 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. The funeral which was largely attended was held at the Yellow Creek M.H., by Christian Shaum in German and Jas. H. McGowen in English, from 3 Tim. 4:6,7,8.

"'Tis hard to part with you, dear father,
We can only wonder why,
Thou hast left us grieved and lonely;
May we meet thee by and by?

Human hands have tried to save thee,
Tender cares were all in vain;
Holy angels came and bore thee,
From this weary world of pain.

Your suffering now is o'er,
Your warfare now is ended;
We shall see you here no more,
To God your soul ascended.

With saints and angels there,
You can praise the Lord our King;
The great reward you'll share,
And the heavenly anthems sing.

Your wearied brow is cold in death,
Your gentle eye-lids closed;
Your languid tongue from us is hushed,
We miss you, oh, how much!" J.H.M.

*Transcriber's note: Typed as printed.

"Farewell, farewell, O Davie, dear,
Now in your grave you sleep;
Your loving form is resting there,
And o'er your grave we weep.

Dear parents you are lonely now,
Be sure and make the solemn vow,
To live for Christ that you may be
With Davie in eternity.

Then little sisters, cease to weep,
Since your brother has gone to sleep;
The time is short till life is o'er,
And we may meet, to part no more."

"Weep not for me, since 'tis in vain,
I will not come to you again;
My home from earth is far away,
And here 'tis my delight to stay."

BURKHOLDER.-On Feb. 20th, 1894, near Newville, Cumberland Co., Pa., of lagrippe and heart trouble, Sister Barbara Burkholder, widow of Deacon John Burkholder, aged 74 years, 10 months and 8 days. She leaves 7 children and 25 grandchildren, all of whom are living. She often expressed a desire to depart and go to rest to meet her dear companion and friends who had gone before her.

She was buried on the 23d, at the Diller meeting-house, followed by many friends and relatives. Funeral services were conducted by Peter Wadle in German, and Philip Parret and Jacob Herr in English. Text, 2 Tim. 4:6-8.

KULP.-On the 9th of April, 1894, in Elkhart, Ind., of lung fever, Bro. Abraham Kulp, aged 57 years, 8 months and 8 days. He was born in Holmes Co., Ohio, July 31, 1836, and was married to Elizabeth Nafziger of Elkhart Co., Ind., on the 12th of April, 1860. The union was blessed with five children, three of whom survive him. His wife died on the 25th of March, 1883, in Berrien Co., Mich. For a number of years past he resided in Elkhart, and during the past winter he passed through a severe affliction from lagrippe, which confined him to his room ten weeks. From this he recovered sufficiently to go out again, when about a week before his death he was confined to his bed by a severe attack of lung fever which ended his life. He was a faithful member of the Mennonite denomination for many years. He had given himself up entirely into the hands of God. We mourn our brother's death, but with the assurance that he has only gone before. May God bless the bereaved children, and bring them to a happy reunion in the Canaan above. The remains were laid to rest in the Baugo graveyard on the 11th, followed by many relatives and friends. Funeral services were held by J.F. Funk and J.S. Coffman.

ZOOK.-On April 3d, 1894, near Belleville, Mifflin Co., Pa., of a complication of diseases, Elsie May, daughter of David R., and Malinda Zook, aged 16 years, 5 months and 18 days. Her funeral on the 5th was largely attended. She leaves a deeply bereaved father, mother, three brothers and two sisters to mourn her early departure. Elsie was loved by all who knew her, and will be greatly missed at home and by her relatives and fri
ends and neighbors. She was a child of extraordinary obedience and sympathy. We can best express our feelings in the language of the poet where he says:

"A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.

God in His wisdom has recalled
The boon His love had given,
And though the body slumbers now,
The soul is safe in heaven." J.H. BYLER.


METZLER.-On the 3d of April, 1894, in West Earl township, near Metzler's meeting-house, Lancaster Co., Pa., Bro. Jacob Metzler, aged 65 years, 5 months and 24 days. Death was caused by Bright's disease, which developed since last Christmas, at which time he was confined to the house with rheumatism. Up to last Christmas he was always of a robust disposition and was seldom sick. He was born on the farm on which he died, and resided there all his life. The deceased was highly esteemed, always a good neighbor, and was possessed of many excellent qualities of mind and heart. He was a member of the Mennonite church and was a faithful attendant at the church services and took an active interest in church affairs. He leaves a widow and two daughters, Lizzie, wife of Daniel Buch, near Akron, Pa., and Barbara, who resides at home; also two brothers and one sister; John, a twin brother, lives on an adjoining farm; Barbara, wife of Joseph Rupp, lives near Akron, Pa.; and Samuel, who has for many years been a resident of Chicago, Ill. The funeral at Metzler's meeting-house, was conducted by Elias Nolt and Joseph Wenger in German, and by Jacob N. Brubacher in English.

DENLINGER.-On the 18th of March, 1894, near Intercourse, Lancaster Co., Pa., of consumption, Sister Emma K., wife of John Denlinger, aged 26 years, 9 months and 22 days. She was exceedingly patient during her sickness, and resigned to the will of Him who had power to restore her health if it was His will. Shortly before her death she requested those around her to sing hymn No. 325, recalling the words "The Lord is my Leader," in whom she placed her trust, and patiently waited for His coming. She leaves a husband and one child, parents, two sisters and one brother to mourn her departure, but they need not mourn as those who have no hope. Buried on the 21st at Hershey's Mennonite meeting-house, in the presence of many friends and companions. Services were conducted at the church by John K. Ranck and Bishop Isaac Eby from 2 Cor. 5:1. We hope that this message may be the means of causing her sisters and those of her companions who have not yet taken Christ for their leader to consider more seriously the question, "What must I do to be saved?" That they would no longer halt between two opinions, but that they will forsake sin and come out on the Lord's side, and be workers for the cause of Him who "bought them with a price."

RUFENACHT.-On the 15th of March 1894, near Archbold, Fulton Co., Ohio, Sister Barbara, wife of Bro. John Rufenacht, aged 61 years, 5 months, 29 days. She was a peaceful member of the Amish church, and mother of 5 children, 2 of them have preceded her. She leaves a sorrowful husband and three children to mourn their loss, but not as those who have no hope. She was married nearly 36 years ago. Buried on the 18th in the Amish cemetery. Services were conducted by Chr. Stuckey and D.J. Wise from 2 Tim. 4:6-8.

HERSH.-April 3d, 1894, in Donegal Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa., Bro. Cyrus Hersh, aged 62 years, 4 months, 2 days. Bro. Hersh was a faithful member of the Mennonite church for many years, and took great interest in the Sunday school cause. He was assistant superintendent of the S. school at Graybill's meeting house for the last eight or ten years. May the many precious thoughts he tried to plant in the young hearts be long remembered. His funeral was held in Graybill's meeting house on the 7th, attended by a large concourse of people. Text, Psalm 126:5,6. Peace to his ashes.

RESSLER.-On the 20th of March 1894, near Mechanisgrove, Lanc. Co, Pa., of scarlet fever, Aaron M., oldest son of Bro. Joseph H. and Sister Naomi L. Ressler, and a grandson of Bro. Henry H. Hershey, aged 3 years, 7 months and 21 days. Funeral services by Tobias Brubaker of Mechanisgrove. Buried at the same place at the Mennonite church. Text, Psa. 103:15,16. He was a very bright little boy. Shortly after he took sick he told his mother he wanted to go to his little cousin, one that had died two years ago. He could remember yet of him. He was sick three weeks. His parents thought it very hard to part with their dear little boy, but such is life. We know that death will come sooner or later. God's ways are not our ways, and what He does is well done. Dear parents, let us so live that when death comes we can then live with our near and dear ones who have gone before.

We had a little Aaron once,
He was our grateful pride,
We loved him, ah, perhaps too well,
For soon he slept and died.

We often think of his sweet smiles,
His ever faithful love;
Our weary hearts he oft beguiled -
He dwells with God above.

Go, little loved one, go -
A mother's heart can tell;
And none but her can fully know
How hard to say - "Farewell." A Friend.

STOUFFER.-On the 17th of April 1894, Nancy K., wife of Benjamin Stouffer peacefully passed away. She was sick about four months of consumption, but bore her affliction very patiently. She leaves her husband, parents, 4 sisters and one brother. Her age was 23 years, 6 months and 9 days. The funeral text was John 17:4. The services were conducted by Clegett Miller, George Keenner and Henry Bear.

"Yes, she is gone, yet do not thou
The goodness of the Lord distrust,
But meekly to His wisdom bow
Who lays thy loved one in the dust.
The form is there, but seek not there
The spirit born for light and love;
Look upward, free from sin and care
It rests in joy with God above.

Then mourn not that an heir of grace
Has reached the goal of hope and faith;
Press onward in the Christian race,
Brief is your parting now by death,
Soon thou too wilt be called to leave
This earth where sadly thou dost roam;
Soon joyfully wilt thou be received
In heaven, her gentle welcome home.

FEISTER.-On the 11th of April 1894, in Harristown, Lanc. Co., Pa., Mary Feister, aged 67 years, 3 months and 17 days. Buried at Pequea church on the 14th. Services at the house by John K. Rank, in English. She joined the Mennonite church some years ago and was a faithful member, of a mild and quiet nature. She hated strife and contention. We all miss our kind mother, yet rejoice that her life here was such that her reward is great.

"Weep not for me, my children dear,
In Jesus is my rest;
His saving grace is ever near,
His name is ever blest.

Rejoice for me that I have done
With earthly cares and strife;
Rejoice for me that I have won
The promised crown of life."

The deceased sister has for many years lived a life consistent with her profession.

RODGERS.-On the 27th of April, near Fort Spring, Greenbrier Co., West Va., of intense suffering in old age Elizabeth, widow of Daniel Rodgers, deceased, who preceded her to the spirit world a number of years. Her maiden name was Coffman, a sister of Bishop Samuel Coffman of Rockingham Co., Va. She was brought up in the faith of Christ among the few Mennonite families that settled in Greenbrier Co., many years ago, but as no church of our people was ever organized there, she found her church home in the Methodist Episcopal Church. She lived a most exemplary Christian life, and died in the blessed hope of the rest of the blood washed in heaven.

KOLB.-On the 12th of April 1894, near Breslau, Waterloo Co., Ontario, on his old homestead where he resided with his son Joseph, of old age and heart disease, Bro.

He was totally blind for about ten years, but in the spirit he looked forward to the time of his departure, trusting in his Savior. He was one of the early settlers in Waterloo county, having come with his parents and a party of other emigrants, from Pennsylvania in the year 1824. He was a faithful member of the church, and although his call was sudden, we believe he was not unprepared. His temporal wants were well cared for by his son Joseph and family. With the exception of not being able to walk he was better than usual for the last 5 months, up to the night before his death, when he was restless. He was asked several times in the morning whether he wished to get up, but replied that he would rest a little longer. Between 8 and 9 his son went in and found that he had entered into eternal rest.

DENLINGER.-On the 18th of March 1894, near Intercourse, Lanc. Co., Pa., of that dread disease, consumption, sister Emma K. Denlinger, in the 27th year of her age. It is very sad when so young a wife and mother is taken from her family, but what God does is well done. She had been sick during her affliction, and fully resigned to God's will. Shortly before she died she said she would like to take her husband and only child, (a little boy) with her.

God in His word has given;
