    • Hostetler - Nancy, thirteenth daughter of Bro. and Sister David Magdalene (Oesch) Kropf, was born in Hickory Co., Mo., Sept. 4, 1866; died in Garden City, Mo., July 21, 1934; aged 67 y. 10 m. 17 d. Her childhood years were spent in Hickory Co., and later moved to Cass Co., with her parents. In early life she accepted Christ as her Savior, united with the Sycamore Grove Church, and remained in the faith to the time of her death. On Feb. 4, 1889, she was united in marriage to Joseph E. Hostetler. To this union 6 children were born: Roy J., (deceased) ; Harvey D., Garden City, Mo., John E., Anoka, Minn.; Carl A., Kansas City, Mo.; Lawrence J., Clinton, Mo.; Daniel E., Kansas City, Mo. After her marriage she lived near Garden City, Mo., but from 1906 to 1909 the family lived near Guymon, Okla. About 8 years ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis, and through all these years she has shown great Christian fortitude and resignation. She is survived by 5 sons, 1 brother (Chris Kropf), 2 sisters (Mary Hershberger and Rachel Schrock), and 6 grandchildren. Funeral services were held July 23, at the Sycamore Grove Church, conducted by I. G. Hartzler (Text, I Thess. 4: 13-18), assisted by D. W. Bitton. Burial in Clear Fork Cemetery.
