      _________________

      - Nancy Weber, maiden name Shantz, daughter of Isaac Shantz, who came from Pennsylvania in 1808 and settled on the farm near Berlin, now in possession of Abram Wambold, was born Aug. 11th, 1817. On the 1st of March, 1836, she was married to Benjamin M. Weber, and moved on lot No. 113, between Bridgeport and Breslau, which was at that time all forest but a few acres. They were of the first settlers, and wolves and other wild beasts and Indians were plentiful. Some years afterward other Mennonite people came in, and they built a house of worship now known as Cressman's Meeting House. Here they lived and worshiped the Lord harmoniously in true unity and spirit together until Nov. 30, 1870, Benjamin Weber died. Since then she remained a widow until her life ended here to begin in glory, which took place April 8th, 1899, at the age of 81 years, 7 months and 27 days. This union was blessed with ten children, of whom only two remain. She was buried at C. Eby's M. H. on the 11th, where a large concourse of friends and relatives were present. Services by Noah Stauffer from Heb. 11: 10, followed by Jacob
      Woolner. She was a consistent member of the Mennonite Church.2a
