  • Notes 
    • Schultz. - John L. Schultz was born near Petersburg, Ont., Jan. 25, 1859. On May 3, 1934, early in the morning, by chance with a truck he left at the home of his son-in-law and daughter in Wellesley, (where he was residing the last few years), for Shakespeare, about 15 miles from the home, to see a doctor for some minor ailments. Just before entering the house of the doctor he dropped down and in a few minutes expired; aged 75 y. 3 m. 9 d. He was married to Catherine Boshart in 1878, who preceded him June 7, 1925. To this union were born 2 sons and 4 daughters. One son died in infancy. There remain Moses of Baden, Ont.; Mattie (Mrs. Moses Leis) of Wellesley, Ont., where he was residing; Katie, Lizzie (Mrs. Bingaman) of Kitchener, Ont.; Anne (Mrs. Dan Schlabach), Guernsey, Sask. He had a sister who died a number of years ago, who was the mother of Bro. Amos Swartzentruber, missionary in S. America. In his youth he was baptized and received into the Amish Mennonite Church, by his grandfather, the later Peter Litwiller, bishop then of the Wilmot Church, who was the great-grandfather of Bro. Nelson Litwiller, also of S. America, and was faithful to the end. Funeral services May 6, by Bro. Dan Lebold at the home and at the Wilmot church by Bro. Chris Gascho, and Bro. Dan Jutzi. Interment in the adjoining cemetery. "In the bright eternal city, Death can never, never come; In His own good time He'll call us From our rest to home, sweet home." --- P. B.
