      Hallman. - Mary (Clemens) Hallman was born Sept. 11, 1834; died Jan. 17, 1915, at the ripe old age of 80 y. 4 m. 6 d. She was united in wedlock July 18, 1852, with John S. Hallman, whose beloved companionship she enjoyed for 41 years. He preceded her 21 years. This union was blessed with a family of 5 sons and 7 daughters, all of whom are still living except one daughter who died in 1882. She was converted early in life and was a faithful and consistent member of the Mennonite Church for over 60 years. She was blessed with a wonderful constitution, for besides the cares and duties of raising a large family, she managed many a time to lend a helping hand in the families of neighbors, often succeeding well in the treatment of sick children in those olden days when doctors were few and far away. In her declining years she was afflicted with rheumatism and often longed to depart and be with Christ, but although she suffered much at times, she always seemed to be resigned to the will of the Lord, and we have the blessed hope that He has taken her to Himself. Funeral services were conducted at the Blenheim Church by E. S. Bauman from Jno. 14: 18, 19, in German, and Jonas Snider from Rev. 14: 13, in English. Buried in cemetery near the church
