      _________________________

      STAUFFER.-John Stauffer was born May 3, 1813, in Waterloo Co., Canada, where he lived till some time in May 1898, when he moved to Elkton, Mich., with his son Tillman Stauffer, and died September 19, 1898, aged 85 years, 4 months and 16 days. His wife died nine years ago. He was the father of ten children (five living and five dead), twenty-four grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. He was buried September 21st, in the Elkton Presbyterian cemetery. Funeral services were held by Bro. Peter Ropp, in German, from Rev. 14: 13, and in English from John 5: 28,29. He had been a member of the Mennonite Church, but had fallen back some years ago and remained so until his death. May the Lord bless all brothers and sisters with His Holy Spirit that they may be found true and faithful servants. May the words of Paul in 1 Thess. 5 : 4, 21 be appliable to them: "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief." "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." A BROTHER.
