  • Notes 
    • Luisa Maurer

      Ne Bender, born in Eschelbach, Baden, deceased in peace November 15th, 1901 in Berlin, Ont., 66 years and 18 days of age. She came with her parents as a child to Amerika. She entered matrimony with Georg Maurer in the year 1852 out of which sprouted 9 children, two of them went before their mother. She became converted to the Lord in her youth. She resided many years in Oberwoolich [Upper Woolwich Township/North Woolwich], Waterloo County, Ont. The last two years, she and her husband lived with their daughter in Berlin, where she also deceased. The departed, in poor health, suffered with heart and neuropathic malady, which she endured with Christian patience and resignation in the will of our Lord. She leaves behind a very sad husband, 7 children, 20 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and 2 siblings. May the Lord help them all to a life in Eternity. A.V. Haist [pastor?]
