  • Notes 
    • In Wilmot Township, Waterloo Co., C. W., on the 26th of December, our sister Magdalena Eby, aged 87 years, 10 mo., and 26 days. She was a widow, and entirely blind for some years, yet under all her afflictions she manifested the greatest Christian fortitude and the living hope of a better life, after her sufferings here were over. Her maiden name was Erb; she was a sister to Benjamin Erb of Wayne Co., Ohio. She has a sister still living here, who is in her 91st year and still able to go about with ease. Bro. Brubaker from Pennsylvania, who was here on a visit, preached on this occasion, from the words in Isa. 40: 6, 7, 8; and the writer from Hebr. 4: 14. DAVID SHERK.
