    • Death of Jacob B. Roth

      Another of the old pioneers of this district was called to his eternal rest when Mr. Jacob B. Roth passed away very suddenly at his home on Jacob Street on Tuesday noon, June 2nd. He was up and around as usual, but he was suddenly stricken with paralysis shortly before noon and passed away about one o'clock. In his death there is removed from this sphere a man of outstanding virtues, having lived a life of true Christianity. Endeared to a very large circle of friends through his pleasant, kind and unselfish ways, his many deeds of neighborly kindness will never be forgotten and his memory will be revered. The deceased was a faithful adherent of the Amish-Mennonite Church and a constant attendant at the church services. For many years he farmed on Bleams Road, but for the past nine years lived retired in town. The late Mr. Roth was born near Baden on April 2nd, 1852, and thus reached the age of 79 years and 2 months. He was thrice married. On May 2nd, 1875, he entered into the holy bonds of matrimony with Catharine Gordner, who died eight years later. On January 12th, 1884 he entered his second matrimony with Magdalena Eiman. This union was blessed with one child which died in infancy. After the death of his second wife in 1892 he married a third time on September 19th, 1893, Veronica Streicher. To them were born four sons. One son, William, was accidently killed by a falling tree while cutting wood in the bush. His sorrowing widow and three sons are left to mourn his demise. The children are, Samuel S., near Baden, Rudy and Moses on the homestead. He also leaves ten grandchildren, one brother, David B. Roth, and one sister, Mrs. Jacob Gordner, both residing in Baden. The funeral will take place from his late home this Friday morning to Steinmann's Church for service followed by interment in the church cemetery.
