  • Notes 
    • Gingrich. - Moses M., son of Elias and Annie (Martin) Gingrich, was born in Iowa, Dec. 30, 1889; died near Elmira, Ont., Oct. 29, 1934; aged 44 y. 9.m. 29 d. When 22 years of age, he left Iowa and came to Ontario, where he joined the Mennonite Church. June 30, 1914, he was married to Lovina, daughter of Samuel K. and Magdalena Brubaker. To this union were born six children. Two died in infancy. There remain, his beloved companion, 4 daughters (Elvina, Magdalena, Salena, and Edna), his aged parents who live in Pennsylvania, 4 brothers and 2 sisters -- Sidney, Leah (Mrs. Jacob Brubaker), Lovina (Mrs. Elam Martin), Elias, and John of Pennsylvania; and Menno of Alberta, also an uncle, 2 aunts, and many cousins and other relatives. He was a kind husband and father, well liked in the community. He was ailing for over a year, so that he could not do much work. He consulted several doctors, but it seemed they could not do much for him. Later they took X-ray pictures and found he had enlargement of the heart, Bright's disease, and cancer of the stomach. He grew weaker as time passed. About the first of October he took his bed, and the last four weeks failed rapidly. He bore his affliction patiently, never complaining. His desire was to go to Jesus. It was hard to part, but God's ways are not our ways. The funeral was held Nov. 1 -- brief services at the house conducted by Jesse Bauman, with further services at the Mennonite Church near Elmira by Jesse Bauman and Urias Martin. Texts, Phil. 1 and I Cor. 1: 18. Burial in adjoining cemetery.
