  • Notes 
    • Christophel - Nancy Christophel was born in Berlin, Canada, May 18, 1831; died at the home of her daughter, wife of Chester Wenger, near Cullom, Ill., Feb. 23, 1909; aged 77 y. 9 m. 5 d. When a girl she moved with her parents to Ohio and in the year 1856 she was married to Jacob Christophel and moved on a farm in Elkhart Co., Ind. To this union were born 9 children: Daniel, of White Cloud, Mich., Enos, who preceded her to the spirit world, Christian of Narcross, Minn., Sarah Bullard, Elkhart, Ind. Susie Reedy, of Tuleta, Tex., Samuel, of Middleton, Pa., Mary Koerner, Elias and Salome Wenger of Cullom, Ill. In 1896 she and her husband came to Cullom, Ill., to live with their children, where her husband died Aug. 8, 1900. The deceased was a member of the Mennonite Church since her youth. She enjoyed good health until about a year ago, when she had an attack of heart failure from which time she gradually grew weaker. She bore her affliction patiently and longed to be at rest. Funeral services were conducted by A. H. Leaman of Chicago. Text, Prov. 3: 17.

      "Leaf by leaf the roses fall,
      Drop by drop the spring runs dry;
      One by one beyond recall,
      Loved ones say farewell and die,
      But the roses will bloom again
      And the springs will gush anew,
      So in Eden's fairer clime,
      Brighter scenes we soon shall view."
