  • Notes 
    • Schwartzentruber, John, son of the late Christian and Veronica (Eby) [should read Erb] Schwartzentruber, was born at Petersburg, Ont., on June 4, 1864; died at the home of his son Clayton in Petersburg on Jan. 22, 1957, after a lingering illness; aged 89 y. 7m. 17 d. In his youth he accepted Christ as his Saviour and was received into fellowship with the A. M. Church, to which faith he remained faithful until death. On March 8, 1896, he was united in marriage to Catherine Schwartzentruber, who died May 6, 1929. To this union were born one daughter (Matilda-Mrs. John L. Roth), and one son (Clayton), both of Petersburg. Also surviving are 9 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and one brother (Christian, New Hamburg, Ont.). Eleven brothers and sisters preceded him in death. Funeral services were held at the St. Agatha A. M. Church on Jan. 25, conducted by Elmer Schwartzentruber, Orland Gingerich, and Peter Nafziger. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.
