Deacon David Eshleman died near Mannheim, Waterloo Co., Ont., of pneumonia, on Feb. 11, 1905; aged 82 Y., 2 M., 17 D. He was married to Esther Shantz, who preceded him to the spirit world 21 years ago. To them were born a family of eight children, four sons and four daughters. He leaves behind him six children, twenty grandchildren, several great-grandchildren and a great many friends. In 1859 he was ordained deacon of the Mennonite church, which office he faithfully filled until a few years previous to his death, when he resigned owing to ill health. He took a great interest in church work; he leaves a bright hope of the glorious beyond. Funeral services were conducted by Moses Bowman, Menno Cressman, Noah Stauffer and A. D.
