      He was converted early in life and united with the River Brethren church of which he was still a faithful member at his death.

      The end came in great peace, falling asleep in Jesus. He often praised God with a loud voice during the days of his sickness and often expressed the desire of having God's word read and to be prayed with. He left unmistakable evidence of his acceptance with God.

      Funeral was held in the Evangelical church, services conducted by Bishop Engel. interment in I.O.O.F. cemetery.
