    • Brundage, Daniel (1812-1895)

      Daniel Brundage (1812-1895) was a pioneer bishop of the Mennonite Church in Kansas , although he was born in Ontario. While living in Canada he was ordained to the ministry. Later he moved to Elkhart County, IN. In 1869 he moved to Missouri , where he was ordained bishop of the Bethel congregation near Tipton, Moniteau County on 28 May 1870. After a tornado destroyed his buildings and personal property in 1872, he moved to Kansas the next year and settled in McPherson County, where he organized the Spring Valley congregation. During the years 1873-1881 (?) and 1887-1889, he served the Kansas congregations as bishop, travelling in his two wheeled springless cart to one of the four churches in his circuit each Sunday. He was known as "Old Faithful Bishop Brundage." In 1889 he discontinued his services and moved to Elkhart County, IN, where he retired.

      ______________________________



      Bro. Daniel Brundage was born Feb. 16th, 1812, near Toronto, York Co., Ontario. He grew to manhood's years in the land of his nativity and in 1836 he was united in marriage to Mary Gayman. In 1858 they moved to Indiana, and for many years lived in Elkhart County. In 1868 they moved to Morgan Co., Missouri. Here they lived about four years. About a year after they moved to Missouri, a tornado passed through that part of the country, blowing their house to pieces and carrying all of his books away. The family records were kept in the family Bible; this being also carried away and destroyed by the storm, all his family records were lost. In 1872 they moved to McPherson Co., Kan., and about two years after settling there Sister Brundage died. On the 2nd of January, 1876, he was married to Mary Beutler, sister to Bish. Jacob A. Beutler, of Elkhart Co., Ind. They made their home in Kansas until about six years ago when they moved back to Elkhart county again, to spend the evening of life in their former home.

      Bro. Brundage united with the Mennonite church in Canada in early life, having been a member about 68 years. He was ordained to the ministry before he left Canada. It is probable that he was ordained to this service by Bish. Benj. Eby. He was an earnest speaker, and preached an experimental religion, and exemplified his faith and doctrine by his walk and conversation. He was a carpenter by trade, and endured many hardships, and met with many trials and misfortunes in life, but endured them all patiently, and was not wearied in well doing, and proclaiming to the best of his ability, salvation, by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He was ordained to the office of elder or bishop, in Morgan Co., Mo. While in Kansas he had a large field of labor. When he found the vigor of his life abating, and his strength beginning to fail, he took to counsel of Paul to Timothy to heart, and appointed and ordained ministers and "elders in every place," so that all the district were provided with teachers and bishops, before he should leave his work. During the last few years he was not able, except occasionally, to attend public services. Through all his afflictions he put his trust in God, looking for salvation alone through Christ. He died on the 14th of December 1895, aged aged 83 years, 9 months and 28 days. Funeral services were conducted by John F. Funk, assisted by D.H. Bender, from Rev. 14: 13. He leaves several children and a deeply sorrowing companion, in feeble health, to mourn his death. Peace to his ashes.

      This morning we are thinking, dear father, of grief that has come to our home;
      How you left us in silence one morning, you left us in sorrow and gloom.
      And you're safe on the evergreen shore,
      Where the grief you so often have suffered, will never be felt any more.
      We will bow in submission, dear father, and say "Let God's will be done."
      And meet you in that bright morning, when our race on earth is run.
      We will wander to your grave, dear father, and plant some sweet flowers there;
      And try to be ready to meet you in that land that is bright and fair.
