  • Notes 
    • GINGERICH.-On the 4th of February, 1890 in Wellesley, Waterloo county, Ontario, Bro. Jacob L. Gingerich of Stanley, Huron county, Ontario, aged 56 years. The deceased was visiting friends in the vicinity of the above place, when he contracted a severe cold which developed into inflammation of the lungs which confined him to bed, at his brother-in-law John Brenneman's and after 8 days of severe suffering he sank peacefully to rest in Jesus. On the 5th his remains were conveyed to his home. It was a sad message to his 9 children that the lifeless body of their father was coming to the home which he, in company with the mother, had so recently left. He was a faithful brother in the Amish Mennonite church and was a reader of the HERALD for many years. Ten years ago he was ordained a deacon, in which office he ministered until death, and although he suffered many trials he sought only the welfare of his fellow-beings. And endeavored to lead them Zion-ward. His remains were followed to the burial place in the Amish Mennonite graveyard by a large concourse of relatives and friends to mourn his death and sympathize with the bereaved family, yet we feel assured that our dear brother has passed from earth to the brighter joys beyond. God bless and comfort the dear Sister and family in their loss, and grant that they may all make their calling and election sure and meet their beloved father in heaven.
