      There passed away on Sunday last, Mr. Jacob Groff in his 70th year. The late Mr. Groff was a life long resident of New Hamburg and an esteemed citizen. For years he carried on a general store here but about twenty years ago became interested with the Ontario Button Co. in Berlin for which concern he was travelling-salesman. Several years ago he retired. He was married to Margaret Merner and three children were born to them. One son George and one daughter predeceased him. He is survived by his sorrowing widow and one daughter Miss Clara Groff at home. The funeral took place on Wednesday at the Evangelical church where Rev. Snyder of Trinity Methodist church conducted the service.
