  • Notes 
    • Honsberger.-Mary Anne Snyder [should read Lydia Ann], beloved wife of Franklin Honsberger, of Jordan, Ont., passed away at the home of her parents, Bro. And Sister John Snyder of German Mills, Ont. She had been a patient sufferer, but was soon cut off from her useful life and leaves a sorrowing companion and two small children, who have the sympathy of many friends. Funeral services were conducted at the home of Bro. Snyder in Waterloo Co. by Noah Stouffer and Eli Hallman. The corpse was then brought to Jordan to the home from which she had gone last fall and to which she had soon expected to return to be with her beloved family. Funeral services were held on Sunday, when an exceptionally large congregation assembled, it being also the occasion of the funeral services of the above Sister Martin*. On this afternoon within an hour these two bodies were laid away to rest until the day of resurrection. May God give especial comfort to the parents, brothers, sister and beloved companion and children of the esteemed young sister. Services conducted by the ministers J.F. Rittenhouse, Gilbert, Bearss and S.F. Coffman.*Anna Martin widow of Michael Martin - possibly Anna (Moyer) Martin whose obituary appears in the same issue of the Herald of Truth.
