Roth and Anna Schlegel, was born at Wayland, Iowa, June 9, 1869; passed away at his home, New Hamburg, Ont., Jan. 12, 1949; aged 79 y. 7 m. 3 d. His parents died when he was quite young and at the age of fourteen he moved to the home of his uncle (John F. Roth) at New Hamburg. There he grew to manhood and there resided, on the same farm, until death. In his youth he accepted Christ and was a member of the Steinman A.M. Church. On March 8, 1893, he was united in marriage to Barbara Lichti, who predeceased him in August, 1942. Two sons and one daughter also predeceased him. Surviving are 4 sons and one daughter (John, Petersburg, Ont.; Nickolas, New Hamburg, Ont.; Mabel - Mrs. Melvin Bender, Ailsa Craig, Ont.; Lorne, Tavistock,Ont.; and Alvin, on the homestead), 23 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, one sister (Mrs. Mary Troyer, Shickley, Nebr.), one stepsister (Mrs. Katie Schwartzentruber, Zurich, Ont.), and a large number of other relatives and friends. Eight weeks before his death he suffered a stroke which left himi helpless and speechless. He bore his affliction patiently. Funeral services were in charge of M. O. Jantzi, Ben Gingerich spoke at the home, and Peter Nafziger and Amos Swartzentruber at the church. Text: Heb. 4: 9. Burial was made in the adjoining cemetery.
