  • Notes 
    • Schmitt. - Abraham Schmitt of Baden, Ont., was born March 16, 1889. He was married to Clara Barbara Snyder March 5, 1919. This union was blessed with 1 son (Harold). For several months his health was failing. He suffered intensely with a complication of diseases but bore it all with Christian fortitude. "My grace is sufficient for thee," was verified in his sickness and suffering. Although his body was racked with pain he could still raise his voice in song and often requested his family and friends to sing for him. On Sept. 1 he peacefully fell asleep in Jesus, aged 45 y. 5 m. 15 d. He leaves his deeply bereaved companion and Harold, parents, 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and many other relatives and friends. May God comfort and sustain the bereaved family. Funeral services were conducted Sept. 4 by Orphen Wismer, Moses Yantzi, and Manasseh Hallman at the Schantz Church near Baden. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
      "We loved you and no tongue can tell
      How much we loved you and how well;
      Christ loved you too and thought it best
      To take you home with Him to rest."
