      FREY - On the 1st of July 1893, near Breslau, Waterloo Co., Ont., very suddenly, Abram, second son of Bro. John Frey, aged 16 years, 5 months and 13 days. Abram was bringing a mowing machine from another farm, having fastened the machine to the back of a light wagon. As he was closing a gate through which he had just passed the team started and he, running forward, and trying to get on his hold gave way and he fell back, the wheel of the mower passing over his head killing him instantly. He was buried on the 4th at the Snyder M.H. Many friends and neighbors assembled to sympathize with the deeply bereaved family. Funeral services by Elias Weber at the house and at the M.H. by Moses Bowman from 2 Kings 4: 18 and D. Wismer from Ps. 90: 12
