  • Notes 
    • Moyer.-Jacob Moyer was born in France April 1, 1839; died June 11, 1931; aged 92 y. 2 m. 10 d. He came to Canada in 1856 and was married to Barbara Brenneman in 1858. She preceded him in death 11 years ago. He is survived by 3 sons, 4 daughters, 23 grandchildren, and 38 great-grandchildren. Many friends also mourn his departure. Though he was old he was not hard to please. His son-in-law, Menno Gasho, and wife did not hear a bitter word from his lips in all the time they took care of him. When in one's right mind, followers of Christ should be thus. Services were conducted t the house. Osias Cressman spoke from Jno. 14: 1-6. There were also services at the Steinman Church.
