  • Notes 
    • Brubacher.-Noah B., son of the late David and Catherine Brubacher, was born near St. Jacobs, Ont., Jan. 17, 1877; died at his home (where he has been staying the last 50 years) Feb. 17, 1934, after only a few days of sickness; aged 57 y. 1 m. He was married to Susanna Brubacher Jan. 15, 1901. She preceded him in death in 1903. On Dec. 24, 1905, he was married to Leah Martin who died June 23, 1932. This union was blessed with 2 sons and 3 daughters. He leaves his 5 children (Mrs. R. Jantzie, Jordan Station, Ont.; Abram, Nora, Elma, and Roy at home), 1 grandchild, and 3 brothers (Aaron, Isaiah, and David), 2 sisters (Mrs. N. H. Cressman and Mrs. Israel Brubacher), and a large circle of other relatives and friends. One sister and two brothers preceded him. He accepted Christ as his Savior early in life and joined the Mennonite Church of which he was a devoted member and earnest worker. He enjoyed his Christian experience and his work for the Master. He will be greatly missed in the home, where he was a loving father; in the neighborhood, always ready to lend a helping hand; and in the Church his place was seldom vacant and was a faithful S. S. teacher for many years. Funeral services were held Feb. 20 at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church, conducted by Brethren S. F. Coffman
