      _________________________

      This week we are called upon to chronicle the death of one of the older residents of St. Jacobs in the person of Mr. Noah W. Gingrich, who passed away very suddenly early Sunday morning at his home her, in his seventy second year. He was born near Conestogo in 1842. He served as an apprentice in the woolen business in Hawkesville, after which he worked at the trade in Battersea, Peterboro and South Bend, Indiana. In partnership with Mr. D. L. Weber he conducted the woolen mill at Chicopee for some years, after which he and Mr. E. W. B. Snider carried on a woolen trade in Nottaway, Grey Co., conjointly with the woolen mill in St. Jacobs. The woolen mill in St. Jacobs was conducted by Mr. Gingrich until a few years ago when it was taken over by the Canada Felting Co., when he retired from business. This spring he disposed of his old home to the Bank of Nova Scotia and had got comfortably settled in his fine new home on Yonge St., when the call came calmly in the morning twilight to transfer his abode into better realms above. Mr. Gingrich had always been an industrious and progressive citizen, an ardent Liberal in politics, an adherent of the Evangelical church, and as a sportsman he had few equals as a successful angler. In 1872 he married Miss Catherine Weber, who is left behind with a family of three sons and five daughters to mourn the loss of a devoted husband and father. The children are: Colin, in North Bay, Harvey in St. Jacobs, Edwin in Jansen, Sask., Mrs. N. S. Snyder, Toronto, Mrs. P. E. Bowman, St. Jacobs, Mrs. Seaman, Rochester, N. Y., Edith in Toronto, and Alice at home. Besides his wife and eight children he is survived by three brothers and four sisters and ten grandchildren. The funeral service conducted by Rev. W. O. Hehn was held on Wednesday at 2.30 p.m., from his late residence to the Evangelical cemetery for interment, and was largely attended by is old friends and neighbors. The pall-bearers were: Messrs. S. Weber, M. L. Weber, D. Weber, J. C. Shelley, W. H. Winkler, and F. E. Welker.
