For many years he occupied the farm which he sold to Mr. Chr. E. Gingerich about eighteen years ago, since which time he lived retired. His wife predeceased him about 25 years ago and one son Wesley also predeceased him. He leaves two sons, Lafayette, of New Hamburg, and Frank, of Newcastle, Pa., also three brothers, Levi, of New Hamburg, Henry, of Wellesley, and Daniel, of Kitchener. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon to Hostetler's Church and Cemetery and was attended by a large circle of relatives and friends.
