      ____________________________

      Brubaker. - Abraham B. Brubaker, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., and died Jan. 4, 1912; aged 77 y. 5 d. He was married to Leah Sittler, also of the same place. In the spring of 1871 he moved to Middlesex Co., Ont., at which place he was ordained to the ministry in the Mennonite Church (Wisler), at which place he served until the spring of 1880, then he moved with his family to Columbiana Co., Ont., at which place all but one of his boys live. One lives in Alberta, Canada. In the spring of 1907 he moved back to Waterloo Co., Ont., living with his daughter Leah, and the evening of Jan. 4, 1912, he peacefully fell asleep in Jesus, leaving to mourn his departure his companion, 6 sons, 5 daughters, 47 grandchildren and about 21 great-grandchildren, and many friends, but not without hope. He was a good husband and father, and always had a word of encouragement for all that came in contact with him. The last year he was too feeble to fill his place in God's house in person, but in mind and spirit he was with all God's people. By a son.2a
