  • Notes 
    • Boshart.-Jonas, son of the late Peter and Magdalena Boshart, was born near Wellesley, Ont., Aug. 18, 1866; died Sept. 13, 1939; aged 73 y. 26d. On Sept. 29, 1889, he was married to Magdalena Gerber. To this union were born 12 children: Moses (who preceded his father in death), John, Nettie (Mrs. Moses Gingrich) of New York; Mary, at home, Lilly (Mrs. Ezra Brenneman), of Baden, Ont.; Menno, of Kitchener; Simon, of New York; Aaron, of Petersburg; Gideon of Baden; Luella (Mrs. Clarence Erb), of Tavistock; Elmina (Mrs. Edward Witmer) with whom they had been living; and Loretta (Mrs. Eldon Witmer) of Kitchener. There also survive 2 brothers (Daniel and Peter), 1 sister (Mrs. Moses Schlabach), 39 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. At the age of 15 years he united with the Amish Mennonite Church, serving the Lord and the church faithfully until about two years ago, when because of location he united with the Snyder congregation of the Mennonite Church near Bloomingdale, Ont., of which he was a faithful and loyal member until his death. After a prolonged illness and much suffering he peacefully passed away to be with his Lord. He left a bright, ringing testimony of his faith in Christ up to the very last.

      ''Tis hard to part with father, dear,
      No more to see him here;
      But yet we're glad if God saw best,
      To end his troubles and give him rest,
      In heaven to reign with angels fair,
      May our names too be written there."

      -Mother and Children.
