  • Notes 
    • Kraft.--Mary Kraft, daughter of the late Elias and Hannah (Bingeman) Snider, was born in Waterloo, Ont., April 7, 1838; died Oct. 21, 1913; aged 75 y. 6 m. 14 d. At the age of 20 years she united in matrimony with Aaron Kraft, who died 16 years ago. To this union were born 6 children, 4 of whom died in infancy. Hannah and Mrs. Lehman Shirk with 2 grandchildren remain to mourn their loss, also 8 brothers and 1 sister. Ever since the death of her husband she had her home with her daughters in Waterloo, where she received the best of care. At the age of 16 years she united with the Mennonite Church, in which faith we believe she was true to the end. She suffered greatly the last few months from that dreadful disease, cancer. She bore her affliction in Christian patience, looking forward to the land where pain is unknown. Funeral services Oct. 24, conducted at the home by Bro. Noah Stauffer and at the Waterloo Church by Bro. Noah Hunsberger from John 16: 33, and Bro. Burns of the Evangelical Church from Heb. 4: 9. Buried at the Berlin Church.
