      __________________

      Enos M., son of Bishop Amos and Ann (Martin) Cressman, was born Sept. 17, 1864; died Aug. 27, 1935; aged 70 y. 11 m. 10 d. On Feb. 1, 1887, he was united in marriage to Lovina Hallman who predeceased him Feb. 1, 1931. The Lord blessed their union with 9 children. One daughter (Clara) died in infancy. There remain 4 sons (Jacob of Petersburg, Manasseh of Strasburg, Edmund and Abner of the home community) and 4 daughters (Mrs Manasseh Shantz and Mrs. Eldon Hunsberger of Baden, Mrs. Aaron Bowman of New Hamburg and Mrs. Orphan Weber of Vineland), besides 41 grandchildren, 2 brothers (Moses and Noah) and 2 sisters (Mrs. Eli Good and Mrs. Chris Fretz). Bro Cressman had been a lifelong resident of the community around New Hamburg, Ont., and his passing removes from among us one who was widely known and respected. In his early twenties he accepted his Lord and united with the Mennonite Church, in which fellowship he lived until the Lord called him. Until about a year ago he enjoyed good health, having a strong constitution. During the last year of his life he endured periods of intense suffering through a complication of disorders and often expressed a desire to go to his reward. Although our brother keenly felt his own shortcomings, he assuringly [sic] pillowed his head in God's promises of a full and free salvation. Funeral services were held Aug. 30 at the home and at the Beihn Church. Burial in the adjoining cemetery. Brethren Moses Roth and Curtis C. Cressman had charge of the services.
