Berkey.-Henry William, son of Jacob and Leah (Burgey) Berkey, was born in Mahoning Co., Ohio, May 6, 1871; passed away at Salem, Oreg., Oct. 23, 1948; aged 77 y. 5 m. 17 d. He had been in poor health for several years and was gradually failing. On Jan. 10, 1894, he was married to Sarah Whitney, of Gabriel, Kans., who survives. Also surviving are 4 sons and 3 daughters (Samuel, Oliver, Chester, Jacob, Leah, Cordelia, and Kathryn). In early mar-ried life he united with the Baptist Church, of which his wife had been a member from girl-hood. About 1903 they moved to Jasper Co., Mo., where they united with the Mennonite Church near Oronogo. After moving to Cheyenne, Wyo., in 1907, they again placed their membership with the Baptists. In 1935, when they moved back into a Mennonite community in Sheridan, Oreg., they again affiliated with the Mennonite Church, of which he was a member at the time of his death. He was zealous for the cause of Christ and gave a clear witness and testimony for the Lord. Funeral services were conducted by G. D. Shenk and D. F. Shenk. Texts: I Cor. 9:24; Phil. 3:14. Burial was made in the Riverside Mennonite Cemetery, west of Sheridan.
