      After John's death, Susannah returned to Woolwich Township, and gave her three children out for adoption. Noah was adopted by Moses Gingrichs; David by Elias Baumans; Lovina by Samuel Reists. She went to work at John S Brubachers, and took with her an invalid son, Johnny. He is buried in the St. Jacob's Mennonite Cemetery beside the Three Bridges School, St.Jacobs. Susannah's immigrant ancestor was Ulrich Gingrich from Alsace. On Oct 18, 1891, she married Abram Martin.
