  • Notes 
    • Bender.-John H., eldest son of Christian and Catherine (Honderich) Bender, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Aug. 5, 1849; died April 27, 1934; aged 84 y. 8 m. 22 d. He was a member of the A. M. Church from his youth. In January, 1872, he was married to Barbara Brenneman of Perth Co., Ont. This union was blessed with 3 children (Jacob B. Bender and Lydia at home, and Mattie-wife of Christ R. Iutzi), all of East Zorra. His wife preceded him in death more than two years. He leaves 1 son, 2 daughters, 17 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, 3 brothers, and 4 sisters. After his marriage in 1872, he had his home on the 16 line of East Zorra Township, and in all these years he never missed being home a night, except two years ago when he made a trip to Clarence Center, N. Y., for a few days. Services were held at the home by Jacob R. Bender, and at the church by D. D. Lebold, Chris Schultz, and D. S. Jutzi. A large host of friends gathered to pay the last respects to the departed. Burial on May 1 at East Zorra A. M. Church.
