      BOWMAN - Tobias Bowman was born June 26, 1829; died Sept. 2, 1909; aged 80 y. 2 m. 6 d. On April 24, 1853, he was united in holy matrimony with Anna Snyder. To this union were born 12 children of whom 8 are living, who with the mother mourn the loss of one who has been kind and affectionate as husband and father. Bro. Bowman was ordained to the ministry in the Mennonite church of Waterloo Co., Ont., in 1875, in which office he labored faithfully for many years. Though for a number of years he had not done any active ministerial work, yet he kept the faith and was glad to be with the brethren in worship and at communion. The end did not come unexpectedly. Last winter he believed the end of his life was near, and had chosen the text and also who was to officiate at his funeral. But when Spring came he recovered considerably again until about two weeks before his death. Funeral on Sunday, Sept. 5. Services at the house and at the Cressman Mennonite Church near Breslau, Ont. Services were conducted in English by C. B. Snyder from Rev. 14:13, and in German by Jacob Woolner, Sr., from Isa. 3:10.2a
