  • Notes 
    • Mr. Simon Kropf

      Death came with startling suddenness to Mr. Simon Kropf of this town last Thursday afternoon, October 6th. He was hauling in corn from the field of Mr. Joseph Bender, which is also the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Bender. He was bringing in a load of corn and when the horses stopped a short distance away from the barn his son-in-law and others went to see what was wrong and found Mr. Kropf dead on the load of corn stalks. A doctor was immediately summoned to the scene and he pronounced death due to a sudden heart attack. The remains were taken to the house and were late removed to his home on Moyer street in New Hamburg. The late Mr. Kropf was born near Wellesley on November 22nd, 1875. In October 1897 he married Barbara Albrecht. They resided near Poole until about seven years ago where they moved to New Hamburg. In religion Mr. Kropf was a member of the Amish Mennonite Church. He leaves to mourn his sudden demise, his wife, four sons and five daughters, namely; Joseph, of South Easthope, Ezra, Alvin and Albert at home, (Lavina) Mrs. William Pauli, of New Hamburg, (Clara) Mrs. Herman Krueger, of Kitchener, (Fanny) Mrs. Noah Ruby, of Millbank, (Katie) Mrs. Milton Koehler, of Kitchener, (Lena) Mrs. Ivan Bender, of Wilmot, and Miss Barbara of Mimico. Four brothers and four sisters also survive, Mrs. M. Leis, Miss Mattie and Miss Anna, of Wellesley, and Mrs. Christian Litwiller, of New Hamburg, Rudy of St. Agatha, John of St. Clements, David of Waterloo and Christian, of Kitchener. The funeral took place on Sunday forenoon from his late home to the Poole A.M. Church and Cemetery and was attended by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends. The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved family in their sad loss.
