  • Notes 
    • Bender. - Bro. David Bender was born May 2, 1832, in Lancaster Co., Pa.; died at his home near Milford, Nebr., Oct. 10, 1912; aged 80 y. 5 m. 8 d. He was married to Lydia Miller Jan. 29, 1855, who died May 7, 1873. To this union were born 4 sons and 4 daughters; 1 son and 1 daughter preceded him to the spirit world. On April 1, 1875, he was again married to Lydia Miller. Grandpa Bender was a faithful and an active member of the Amish Mennonite Church, from his youth, and his place was seldom vacant. His death was caused by several strokes of paralysis, being confined to his bed but 2 days. With a smile, he fell asleep in Jesus, where he so much longed to be. He is survived by wife, 3 sons, 3 daughters, 34 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Funeral services Oct. 12 at the East Fairview Church, conducted by Jacob Stauffer and Sanford C . Yoder. Text, Isa. 38: 1, latter clause.

      "God in His wisdom has recalled,
      The boon His love had given,
      And though the body slumbers here,
      The soul is safe in heaven."

      By a grandchild.
