      ________________

      Weber. --- Josiah Weber, was born Oct. 13, 1864; died after an illness of a few months; aged 75 y. 6 m. 11 d. On Feb. 26, 1889, he was married to Mary Ann Lichty, who predeceased him in 1921. To this union were born 6 children who survive, namely, Nelson, Orton, Ion, Altana (Mrs. Norman R. Martin), all of Elmira, Pearl (Mrs. Maurice Kinsie) of Breslau, and Ella (Mrs. Reuben Dettwiler) of Floradale. Two brothers (Israel and Sidney of Elmira) also survive. The Lord has been very gracious and longsuffering in lengthening out his days to a time during his last illness, in which he confessed Christ as his personal Saviour, desired baptism, and was received into the Church. And so we mourn not as those who have no hope. Bro. O. D. Snyder conducted the service. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

      "Father, dear, your wish is granted;
      Sorrow, pain and grief are o'er;
      By the grace of God we'll meet you
      Over on the peaceful shore."
