  • Notes 
    • Horst.-Mary (Martin) Horst, wife of David B. Horst, was born Dec. 31, 1875; died May 2, 1934; aged 58 y. 4 m. 2 d. She was baptized forty years ago. She was united in marriage March 15, 1898 with David B. Horst who survives her. On Jan. 18, 1899, they moved to Brutus, Mich., living there 18 years. This union was blessed with a family of five boys. Later they moved back to Waterloo Co., Ont., and had their home with our youngest son, Samuel M. Horst, where mother took sick in October with dropsy and a weak heart. She was ill for six months, but was in a wheelchair for a short time every few days. On May 2, she was wheeled out on the veranda to get some sunshine. She passed peacefully away without a word. She leaves a sorrowing husband and 5 boys: John M. Horst of Elmira, Ont.; Isaac of St. Jacobs, Ont.; Levi of Columbiana, Ohio; Samuel of Hawkesville, Ont.; and Henry M. Horst of St. Jacobs., Ont., also 9 grandchildren.
