  • Notes 
    • Erb.-Mahlon Erb was born Dec. 13, 1908, at Wellesley, Ont., Can.; died May 10, 1934; aged 25 y. 4 m. 27 d. He leaves his father (Michael), 4 brothers, 3 sisters, and many relatives and friends to mourn his early departure. On Feb. 27, 1929, while an employee of a Construction Company, he fell, resulting in a broken back, for which he was confined in the General Hospital in Buffalo for nine months. He, however, sufficiently improved so that he was able to be up, and attended church services when health permitted, but at intervals had to return to the hospital. His last stay at the hospital was for 11 days, when the Lord called him home. In his later life he was deeply concerned for the welfare of the church, of which he became a member (Alden, N. Y. congregation) by water baptism in September, 1925. He gave sufficient testimonies that we need not mourn as those who have no hope. Funeral services were held at the Alden meeting house, May 13, conducted by the home ministers, assisted by Bro. Birky of the Sand Hill congregation.
