      DETWEILER.-On the 15th of December, in Bloomingdale, Waterloo Co., Ontario, Bro. Rudolph Detweiler, aged 82 years, 4 months and 6 days. He was born on the 9th of August 1807 in Montgomery Co., Pa. His father and grandfather were also called Rudolph. He was married on the 8th of July 1832 to Susan Bingeman who now survives him, but who is much afflicted and entirely helpless. They had 6 sons and 8 daughters, all of whom except one, are living, and there were 63 grandchildren, 47 living, and 14 great-grandchildren-3 living. May God bless the aged widowed sister and her children in their bereavement.
