  • Notes 
    • Rosenberger. --- Isaiah S., eldest son of the Isaac and Elizabeth (Shantz) Rosenberger, was born in Oxford Co., Ont., Aug. 15, 1867; died at his late home in Beamsville, Ont., Nov. 28, 1949; aged 82 y. 3 m. 13 d. Death followed a paralytic stroke, which he had suffered two weeks previously. On Sept. 29, 1891, he was united in marriage to Persida Shantz, who preceded him in death in May, 1938. Of the children born to this union, eight survive. On Aug. 19, 1945, he was united in marriage to Nancy (Cressman) Moyer, Beamsville, Ont., who survives. Also surviving are 2 sons (Chester, Nipawin, Sask.; David, Guernsey, Sask.), 5 daughters (Ada-Mrs. Hawse, Guernsey, Ont.; Clista, Kitchener, Ont.; Leona-Mrs. Leighton Schmidt, Petersburg, Ont.; and Alda, Chicago, Ill.), 19 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, one brother (Emery, New Dundee, Ont.), and 2 sisters (Mrs. Norman Shantz, Haysville, Ont.; and Elsie, New Dundee, Ont.). He was a member of the Blenheim congregation, near New Dundee, Ont., where he was ordained to the ministry as a helper of the late Joseph Nahgang, in 1897. He served as pastor of the congregation until 1908, when he moved to Guernsey, Sask. There he served until 1936, when he returned to Ontario. He renewed his fellowship with the Blenheim congregation, where he remained a member until death. His fellowship and service with the Vineland congregation was greatly appreciated during the time of his residence in Beamsville, Ont. Funeral services were conducted Dec. 1 at the last residence in Beamsville, and at the Blenheim Church by C. C. Cressman, Daniel Schlabach, and S. F. Coffman. Burial was made in the adjoining cemetery.
