      SNYDER. - On the 23d of Oct. 1900, in Wilmot Twp., Ont., Bro. John K. Snyder, aged 63 years, 11 months and 17 days. We trust that according to his desire he went home to his resting place "to die no more." He suffered with Bright's disease over a year. Sometimes he had much pain, but was not confined to his home long. He was present at our recent communion meeting not long before his death, thus expressing his faith in the great atonement accomplished by the death and suffering of our Lord. He was married to Veronica Shantz, Mar. 26, 1861. To this union were born eleven children, one of whom died in infancy. He leaves a widow, ten children and eleven grandchildren. Buried at Shantz's grave yard, in Wilmot, Oct. 25th, 1900, followed by a large concourse of friends to his last resting place. Funeral services were conducted at the house by A. S. Cressman and by Joseph Nargang at the grave. In the meeting house the services were conducted by Orphan Wismer in English, from I Pet. 1: 24, 25, and in German by Noah Stauffer from 2 Cor. 5: 1.
