The boon His love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven."
By a grandchild.
Son of Jacob Bender and Magdalena Brenneman. Father of Mattie, Leah, John, Mary, David, Emmanuel, and Amanda.
"1832 the 2nd of May was born my 7th child and is named David. May the Lord will to accompany him and be with him to a blessed end. Amen"
