      Christian Hostetler Passes Away

      Death claimed another of our citizens in the person of Mr. Christian Hostetler, who passed away early on Friday morning last at the age of 71 years, 2 months and 3 days. He had enjoyed the best of health up to Sunday previous to his death, when he took ill with appendicitis, which was the cause of his demise. His death came as a shock to his many friends, few only knowing of his short and fatal illness.
      The late Mr. Hostetler was a son of the late Mr. Moses Hostetler and was born on the homestead just east of the village on March 14th, 1846. He farmed for a short time in Wellesley and East Zorra, but for upwards of twenty years, owned the farm now occupied by his son, Harry, on Snyder's Road, opposite the old homestead. About four years ago he retired from farming and moved to town.
      The late Mr. Hostetler was a lifelong resident of this neighborhood and was highly respected by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He was married three times. His first wife was Elizabeth Zimmerman and their union was blessed with three children, Allen, of New Hamburg, Lavina (Mrs. Rudolph Roth) of East Zorra, and Norman, of Wilmot. His second wife was Magdalena Roth with whom he had two sons, Walter, on the former John Ruthig farm, and Harry, on the homestead. Besides his children he is now mourned by his third wife, Elizabeth Goetz. He also leaves four brothers and two sisters, namely, David and Levi Hostetler, of Wilmot, Daniel of Berlin, Henry of Wellesley, and Mrs. Solomon Shantz and Mrs. Emmanuel Hammacher, of Wilmot.
      The funeral took place from his late home to Hostetler's Church and Cemetery on Monday afternoon. A very large concourse of sorrowing relatives paid their last tribute of respect to the departed. Quite a number of relatives were here from the United States to attend the funeral. The bereaved family have the sympathy of their many friends in their sad loss.
