      Brubacher.-David M., son of John and Magdalena (Musselman) Brubacher was born Feb. 21, 1848; died Sept. 12, 1917; aged 69 y. 6 m. 19 d. He was married to Susanna Sitler, to which union were born 12 children, 3 of whom died in infancy. Four sons, 5 daughters, 16 grandchildren, and many relatives and friends are left to mourn his departure. During the last months of his life he suffered a great deal from gangrene on one of his feet, and although the pain was at times almost unbearable he was a patient sufferer and waited and longed for the hour that would relieve him from all pain and sorrow, and we have the hope that he is now safe with Jesus. Funeral services Sept. 14, by Pre. E. S. Bauman in German from II Cor. 5: 1 and Bishop Jonas Snider in English from Rev. 14: 12, 13.
