  • Notes 
    • MARTIN. - JESSE Martin was born in Woolwich Twp., Ont., Mar. 31, 1864. In early manhood he united with the Mennonite Church and lived a faithful Christian life until death. On Mar. 22, 1893, he was united in marriage to Mary Etta Wahl. To this union were born 2 sons and 3 daughters, who with their mother remain to mourn his sudden departure. Bro. Martin was called to the ministry and was ordained at Snyder's Mennonite Church on Feb. 15, 1903. He had been in failing health for several years, and though not considered serious, yet an attempt to give relief by operation at the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital on Jan. 1, 1933, proved too much for his weakened condition and he peacefully fell asleep in Jesus about 11 o'clock Sunday fore-noon while his home congregation were engaged in worship. Funeral services were conducted by the brethren, S. F. Coffman and H. W. Stevanus. Nearly 1000 people gathered at the church to pay last tribute of respect to a good citizen, a fine neighbor, and a faithful Christian. Bro. Martin is gone to his eternal rest, but his testimony remains.
