  • Notes 
    • Schmitt.-Jonathan, son of John and Magdalene (Hallman) Schmitt, was born near Baden, Ont., July 15, 1879; died in the Municipal Hospital, Red Deer, Alta., Feb. 11, 1949; aged 69 y. 6 m. 27 d. A brother of the late Moses Schmitt, who was bishop of the Mennonite Church in Canada, he is survived by one brother, (Herman, Kitchener, Ont.), one sister (Lucinda-Mrs. Irwin Snyder, Guernsey, Sask.), and one half sister Elizabeth-Mrs. Joseph Weber, Didsbury, Alta.). As a young man he was baptized and received into the Mennonite Church in Ontario. He became negligent in his spiritual life and wandered away from his relatives, church, and God working in Calgary and Red Deer, Alta., for many years. When his health failed, he thought of his relatives and got in touch with a nephew, Lloyd Shantz, who from then on kept relatives and ministers visiting him from time to time. He expressed an earnest desire to be reconciled to God, and it is believed that by God's mercy he died in peace. Funeral services were held at the West Zion Church, near Carstairs, Alta., in charge of Henry Harder and Linford Hackman. In accordance with the request of the deceased, burial was made in the West Zion Cemetery, adjoining the church
