Steiner, Peter R., eldest son of Daniel and Magdalena (Basinger) Steiner was born Jan. 9, 1856, near Orrville, Ohio, adjoining his late home; died June 3, 1939l aged 83 y. 4 m. 24 d. He attended a local German school and also the public school in the district, and spent some time in the Smithville Academy and later taught for eleven terms in the community, Sonnenberg, and Putnam Co. He was united in marriage to Caroline, daughter of Fred and CAtherine (STeiner) Welty of Putnam Co., Ohio, May 1, 1884. Six children were born to this union, namely; Clarence of Orrville; Earl of Marshallville, Dillia of Wichita, Kans.; Edna who died at the age of 16 years; Silvia, wife of Rudy Stauffer of Wooster; and a son who died in infancy. The mother died four days later, leaving the father with five small children. Seven years later, April 1, 1900, he was united in marriage to Anna Viola, daughter of Jonas and Nancy (Smucker) Burkholder. Four children were born to this union, namely; Velma, wife of Aldine Zimmerly; Icie, wife of Amos Basinger; Eva, wife of David Kornhaus; and Dayton, who is living on the home farm near Orrville. The wife died Feb. 23, 1925. He is survived by his 3 sons, 5 daughters, 27 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. Besides his children he leaves 2 brothers (John S. of Orrville and Daniel W. of Denver Colo.) and 1 sister (Mary, wife of Philip Hilty of Rittman). Three brothers preceded him in death (Eli, David, and Noah); also 3 sisters (Barbara, Sarah Zimmerly, and Fanny Amstutz). He also leaves many other relatives and friends. In early manhood he accepted Christ as his Saviour and became a member of the Mennonite Church and, as far as able, was a regular attendant. He was always much interested in the singing of Christian hymns and frequently requested this in his home. Some being used at his funeral were among his favorites. He was quite well known in the community, and was frequently saluted by his former pupils. A total of 49 terms was spent by him and his children teaching in the public schools. Services were con-at the Crown Hill Church by Bros. I. J. Buchwalter and E. F. Hartzler. Text, Eccl. 7:2; Deut. 32:46, 47.
