  • Notes 
    • Snyder - Joseph W. Snyder was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Aug. 26, 1889; died March 18, 1935; aged 45 y. 6 m. 20 d. On Jan. 23, 1915 he was united in marriage to Leah Martin. This union was blessed with 4 children (Oscar, Lucinda, Eden, and Milford). Besides his wife and children there remain his aged father, 3 brothers, 5 sisters, and a host of relatives and friends. As a young man he united with the Mennonite church and remained true to the end, which came quite suddenly. He was working in the barn when a bull succeeded in crushing him against a trough, causing internal injuries from the effects of which he died several hours afterward. Though quiet and unassuming, he was cheerful and loving towards all, and it seemed to be one of the rules of his life not to speak evil of any one. He enjoyed the services of God's house to which he brought his family regularly, and he had the joy of seeing his children accept Christ as soon as they came to accountability. Funeral services March 21, at St. Jacobs Mennonite Church, conducted by Moses M. Brubacher (in English), and Urias Martin and Jonas Snider (in German).
