      Snyder.-Ozias, son of Absalom C. and Elizabeth (Cressman) Snyder, was born at Breslau, Ont., Nov. 13, 1866; died at his home in Breslau July 8, 1930; aged 63 y. 7 m. 25 d. Jan. 29, 1890, he was married to Anna Betzner of Breslau, who died in 1893. This union was blessed with two daughters, Elenora and a child who died in infancy. Sept. 15, 1897, he was married to Barbara S. Burkholder of Markham, who died in 1908. To this union were born a son (Elvin) and 3 daughters (Ada, Edith, and Katie Florence who died in infancy). Feb. 19, 1911, he was married to Matilda Snyder of New Dundee, who died in 1925. He is survived by a son (Elvin, missionary in Argentina), 3 daughters (Mrs. Enoch Bauman, Mrs. Abner Rudy, and Ada at home), 2 grandchildren, and many relatives and friends. He united with the Church in May, 1891. His quiet, consistent example, as a brother and Sunday school teacher, was appreciated by the loved ones and many friends. While the family felt keenly the absence at the funeral of Bro. Elvin and his wife in South America, they were somewhat comforted to know he had received the message announcing his father's death and were able to have word again from Elvin on the day of the funeral, the cablegram reading as follows: "Deeply grieved to hear the sad news. Accept sincere sympathy. We condole with you in our mutual and great loss. See word of comfort in II Tim. 1: 10. We continually remember you in our prayers." Funeral services were conducted at the home by Bro. Newton S. Weber, followed by Bro. S. F. Coffman. Bro. Weber spoke briefly at the church on Dan. 12: 3, after which Bro. Jonas Snider preached the funeral sermon. Text, I Cor. 15: 54. Remains laid to rest in cemetery adjoining Breslau Church, where the services were held.

      "Another sheaf of gold the angels garnered in,
      Another soul with Christ doth rest fore'er from grief and sin,
      Another beckoning hand to call His loved ones home,
      Another life in memory lies-through deeds of love well done."
