      _______________

      Erb.-Noah Erb was born in Waterloo township on June 30, 1839; died at his home in Waterloo, Ont., Aug. 6, 1914; aged 75 y. 1 m. 7 d. On May 6, 1862, he was married to Catharine Knorr, in which union they lived till death parted them, leaving to mourn his loss, a widow, 2 brothers, and 1 sister. About 30 years ago he united with the Mennonite Church, in which he was faithful to the end. He was very hard of hearing and could not understand much in church services, yet his place in church was seldom empty, as long as health and circumstances permitted, as he enjoyed the presence of God's children. May our loss be his eternal gain.Funeral services were conducted at the home on Aug. 8 by Noah Stauffer and at the Waterloo Church by Noah Hunsberger in English from Rev. 14: 13, and by Jonas Snider from Heb. 2: 6 in German.
