  • Notes 
    • BADEN, December 7, 1937 - David B. Roth, 83, well known resident of Baden, died today as a result of injuries sustained when he was knocked from a load of hay by a swinging barn door one month ago. The deceased was engaged in unloading a wagon load of hay, assisted by his wife, when a sudden gust of wind caught the door and knocked him to the ground. The late Mr. Roth, a life-long resident of this district, was born near Baden in 1853. He was a son of the late Mr. John and Katie Roth. A member of Steinmann's Amish Mennonite Church, Mr. Roth won distinction during his younger life when he used oxen to cultivate his farm instead of horses. Mr. Roth is also the owner of a valuable collection of Indian relics as well as several oxen yokes he made himself. Surviving are his widow, three sons, Samuel, owner of Roth's Garage in Baden, Noah of Tavistock, and Daniel of Baden, two daughters, Mrs. S. Ruby of Kitchener, and Mrs. P. Steinman of Baden, one sister Mrs. Jacob Gordner of Baden. One son and one daughter predeceased him. Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 1: 30 o'clock from the residence to Steinmann Amish Mennonite Church with burial in the adjoining cemetery.
