    • Brubaker.-Amos S., son of Abram and Lash (Sitler) Brubaker, was born in Cashmere, Ont., June 13, 1862; died at Sheridan, Oreg., Feb. 15, 1939; aged 76 y. 8 m. 2 d. When 17 years of age he went to Northern Michigan, where he spent a number of years as a pioneer of that country. While there he and Mary Ann Dettwiler were united in marriage. This union was blessed with 2 sons and 7 daughters. Soon after their marriage they united with the Mennonite Church and were faithful until death. He became an interested and faithful worker in the Sunday school there. In the spring of 1901 he with his wife and 9 children moved to Alberta, where he was also a pioneer. At the place where he settled he started a post office and store, which became known as Mayton. It was through his efforts that a church was established at this place. In the spring of 1924 they moved to Sheridan, Oreg., where he resided till death. His loving companion preceded him in death 7 years. One son and 2 daughters, also 6 grandchildren preceded him. He leaves 6 children Leah (Mrs. Ed. Wideman) with whom he had his home nearly four years, Amos H., Ettie Mae (Mrs. Sam Ringler), and Barbara Bruba-ker all of Sheridan, Sarah (Mrs. Wm. Brubaman), and Velina (Mrs. Henry Casebeer), of Alberta; also 4 brothers, 2 sisters, 49 grandchildren, and 42 great-grandchildren, besides many other relatives and friends. He was physically weakened by two strokes in the fall and winter of 1934. He had another stroke this winter, which with complications of old age was the cause of his death. He was confined to his bed 2 _ months. He was always very much interested in advancing the cause of Christ and the Church, and his presence and help will he greatly missed. His place was seldom vacant in the house of worship. Funeral services were held in the Sheridan Mennonite Church, conducted by Bro. G. D. Shenk assisted by Bros. A. H. Kilmer and D. F. Shenk.
