  • Notes 
    • Schrag. - Catherine Zehr was born June 14, 1843; died at her home in Baden, Ontario, December 1, 1922; aged 79 y. 5 m. 16 d. On March 11, 1862, she was united in marriage to Jacob Schrag. This union was blessed with seven children, three sons and four daughters. Her husband and one daughter preceded her to the great beyond. She united with the A. M. church in her seventeenth year and remained faithful to the end. She was a loving mother and grandmother, a kind neighbor and a true friend. She was much concerned about the welfare of her family and church. Her kind disposition was to many a comfort in times of grief. Grandmother was able to do her household duties until Tuesday, November 28, when she was found lying on the floor, suffering from a stroke, from which she gradually became weaker until death relieved her on Friday morning. The funeral was held December 3, from her late residence to Steinman's church and cemetery where a large concourse of relatives and friends gathered to pay their last tribute of respect. Services were conducted at the house by Christian Litwiller and by three of grandmother's nephews at the church.
      Christ Schrag.
