  • Notes 
    • Lehman. - Magdelena (Schrag) Lehman died Sept 3, 1929. She was born in Baden, Canada, Mar. 11, 1867, a daughter of Jacob and Catherine Zehr Schrag. On Oct. 23, 1890 , she was united in marriage to Simon F. Lehman who survives her, also two sons (Benjamin and Jacob), five daughters (Mrs. Chris Yousey, Mrs. Daniel Zehr, Mrs. Ernest Zehr, Mrs. Sam Yantzi, and Helen Lehman), also three brothers and one sister and a host of friends. Two daughters preceded her in death. She united with the Amish Church in early youth and was a faithful member until death. She was a patient sufferer for many years, with diabetes and gall stones. Although her health was poor, her death came as a shock, as she had been feeling better and did her work as usual and ate a hearty dinner-when suddenly she was stricken with cerebral hemorrhage which caused a state of coma from which she did not rally but died the next day. She was prepared to go and expressed her willingness to go and dwell with her Savior. Her funeral was largely attended at Croghan Church and burial in the church cemetery. Services were conducted by Joseph Lehman and Joseph Zehr. She will be greatly missed in the community and Church.

      "Oh mother, thy gentle voice is hushed,
      Thy warm, true heart is still,
      And on thy pale and peaceful face
      Is resting death's cold chill;
      Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast,
      We have kissed thy marble brow,
      And in our aching hearts we know
      We have no mother now."
