  • Notes 
    • Cassel - Ephraim B. Cassel died after a short illness, Nov. 1, 1946, in his ninetieth year. His entire life was spent in the New Hamburg, Ont., community, except for the past few years when he resided at the Braeside Home, Hespeler, Ont. He was a member of the Biehn congregation, New Hamburg and had served as one of the first Sunday-school superintendents at that place. His wife predeceased him by four months. One son (Allen, Toronto, Ont.) survives. Funeral services were held at the church, Nov. 4, in charge of Manasseh Hallman, Moses H. Roth, and C. C. Cressman. Interment was made in the church cemetery.
