      __________________________


      Snyder. - Martin B. Snyder was born May 22, 1849; died at his home in Waterloo, Ont., Sept. 29, 1916; aged 67 y. 4 m. 7 d. In 1870 he was united in matrimony with Mary Shantz, to which union were born 9 children, 5 sons and 4 daughters, of whom one daughter preceded him in infancy. Bro. Snyder was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church at Waterloo, and will be greatly missed in the church, as well as in the home and community, but we trust our loss may be his gain and need not mourn as others that have no hope. Funeral services conducted by Bro. Noah Stauffer and Jonas Snider from Rev. 20: 6, on Oct. 3, at the Waterloo Church and the remains were buried at the David Eby Cemetery.
