    • Kropf - David D. Kropf, son of David and Magdalena (Oesch) Kropf, was born in Ontario, Can., Oct. 12, 1857; died of carcinoma and heart trouble at his late home, Garden City, Mo., June 9, 1929; aged 71 y. 7 m. 27 d. He had been in failing health for several years and after two weeks of intense suffering, God called him to Himself. In 1867 he came with his parents to Missouri where he spent the rest of his life. On March 5, 1889, he was married to Catharine Mayer. This union was blessed with 8 children, 3 sons and 5 daughters. He leaves his wife, and 7 children (Edward G., Ida M., Mrs. N. E. Yoder, Orvie D., Mrs. Marvin Yoder, Marvin D., and Anna R.). One daughter died in infancy. He also leaves 3 grandsons, 1 brother (C. J. Kropf), 3 sisters (Mrs. D. J. Schrock, Mrs. Dan Hershberger, and Nancy Hostettler), besides many other relatives and friends. He accepted Christ in his youth and united with the A. M. Church. He desired to depart this life and go home. He was always interested in the work of the Lord and was concerned about the welfare of others, especially of his family. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Bro. I. G. Hartzler from Job 14, and at the Sycamore Grove church by Bro. L. J. Miller from Luke 2: 28, 29.
