      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      _____________________________-


      Mrs. Shantz, the beloved wife of Mr. Jacob Y. Shantz, died this morning, at 12 o'clock, at her late home on Queen Street. Deceased was seventy year of age and has been in enfeebled health for some time, and though her end came somewhat suddenly, yet it was not altogether unexpected. Her maiden name was Sarah Shuh and she was connected with many of the oldest families in the County. The day of her funeral has not been definitely decided upon. We unite with the friends of the bereaved family in extending our sympathy in this hour of loss and sorrow.
