- "In Los Angeles, California, lives Orfa Jean Shontz, one of the best known women lawyers of the Pacific Coast. Orfa Jean is the daughter of Benjamin Shantz, oldest son of David Shantz, who, with his brother Bishop Henry Shantz, lived at Plattsville in Waterloo County, Ontario. Miss Shontz was, at one time, assistant judge of the Juvenile Court of the City of Los Angeles in charge of delinquent girls. During her term of office she tried over 3000 cases with no reversals of opinion or decision from higher courts. That record alone is an enviable one.Miss Shontz was born at Correctionville, Iowa, and her father was, for some years, jailer of the city of Council Bluffs, Iowa."
