  • Notes 
    • Moyer. - James, son of the late Joseph and Catharine Moyer, was born in Lincoln Co., Ont., Feb. 13, 1860; died at his late home in Beamsville, Ont., Oct. 23, 1942, after a very brief illness; aged 82 y. 8 m. 10 d. He seemed to be in exceptionally good health in the past year, and his passing was a shock to all. He was married to Nancy, daughter of the late Menno Cressman, a minister of the Biehn congregation in Waterloo Co., Ont., May 23, 1893. She, with 2 daughters (Ida, Mrs. T. L. Graham, of Vineland, and Reta, Mrs. Wm. Cornelius, of Markham) and a son (Menno Moyer, of Blair, Ont.), mourn the loss of husband and father. He resided for many years on the farm pre-viously owned by his father, and later resided in the village of Campden, Ont. A year ago he moved to Beamsville. He was always active, and even after a severe illness which deprived him of the ability to walk he continued his activity by working in his garden and around his home. He was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church since 1890. For many years he represented the Mennonite Fire Aid Union for this district, and was also trustee for the Mountain Cemetery. In his earlier years he was active in the work of the Church -- in Sunday school and in young people's work, when the work of the Church had been revived through early evangelistic services. We shall miss his presence among us. Funeral services were held Oct. 26, 1942, in charge of S. F. Coffman, and assisted by the ministers, C. G. McPhee of the Disciple Church and S. R. McClung of the Baptist Church, both being near neighbors of Bro. Moyer, and Isaac Moyer of the United Church (a cousin of Brother Moyer). Text, Psa. 90: 12. Interment in Vineland Cemetery.
