  • Notes 
    • CRESSMAN. - Adam S. Cressman was born on the old homestead near Doon, Waterloo Co., Ont., Oct. 31, 1868; died at the same place where he has always resided, April 22, 1930; aged 61 y. 5 m. 22 d. He was united in marriage to Matilda Erb March 14, 1900. To this union were born, one son (Clare) and two daughters (Irla, who died in infancy, and Grace). The bereaved wife, son, and daughter survive him. He was the fourth son of a family of fourteen children to have passed beyond. Three brothers surviving are Josiah, Allen, and Isaiah, and the sisters are Mrs. Abraham Biehn, Mrs. Samuel Swietzer, Mrs. Daniel Culp, and Mrs. Uzziah Shantz, and the Misses Sarah, Minerva and Malissa Cressman. All of the family, excepting Mrs. Biehn, reside in the vicinity of Kitchener. Nearly forty years ago Bro. Cressman united with the Mennonite Church at Vineland, Ont., following a series of meetings conducted by J. S. Coffman, who instructed and baptized the converts on the same occasion. He has been a faithful member and supporter of the work of the Church during these years and was always eager to encourage and assist in any cause which lent its influence to the upbuilding of the spiritual life and to the salvation of souls. Funeral services were held on April 25, at the First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, Ont., by the brethren Jesse B. Martin and S. F. Coffman. Text, Col. 3: 4. The body was laid to rest in the home burying ground at the Weber Church.
