      Martin. - Henry M. Martin died at the home of his son-in-law, Ephraim Betzner, near Conestoga, Ont., Dec. 12, 1915. He enjoyed good health until last June, when he underwent a serious operation from which he fully recovered. About a month ago he took a cold and was failing since. A complication of diseases set in later which turned into Bright's disease, from which he died at the ripe old age of 72 y. and 25 d. He united with the Mennonite Church in his youth and has ever since been a faithful member. He left a bright example of blessed assurance and talked calmly of that change, anxious to meet his loved ones gone before and to be with Christ. He was married to Nancy Lichty who preceded him to the great beyond about a year and a half ago. To this union were born 3 daughters. Two died in infancy. Only one daughter, Selina, the wife of Ephraim Betzner, and one grandson (one grandson died in 1911) and one brother, David M. Martin, are left to mourn. Burial Dec. 14 at Snyder's Cemetery. Services by Enoch Bauman and Abraham Gingerich. However painful it may be to know that father is gone, the thought is sweet that we may see him in that heavenly home. His daughter.
