    • Erb. - Bro. Peter Erb was born March 30, 1840, in Alsace, Germany; died Aug. 18, 1912, near Milford, Nebr. He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Jansi. To this union were born twelve children. His wife and six children preceded him to the spirit world. He was again married to widow Lena Becker
      His death was caused by heart trouble and dropsy, from which he suffered very much for several months; but he bore it all patiently and often expressed a desire to depart from this world, and be with Christ. He was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church. Leaves to mourn his departure, wife, 2 sons, 4 daughters, 4 step-children, 91 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. Funeral services at the East Fairview Church near Milford, Nebr., conducted by the brethren Wm. Schlegel, Jos. Rediger and Jacob Stauffer. Peace to his ashes.
