*****************

his wife's obituary

Bixler - Margaret (Rothgib) Bixler was born July 5, 1827, in Page Co, Va, and died in Ft Wayne, Ind, Oct 1, 1908; aged 81 y, 2 m, 26 d.

She was married to Abraham Bixler in 1855. To this union were born eight children, three of whom preceded her to the spirit world.

She united with the Mennonite Church in her early life and remained a faithful member till death. Even though for several years she was deprived of the privilege of attending at any place of worship, she often called for services to be held in her home, which seemed to be of great comfort to her.

She leaves five children, two sons and three daughters, eleven grand-children, three great-grand-children and many friends to mourn her loss.

Funeral services were held at Ft Wayne, Oct 2, and at Wakarusa, Ind, Oct 3, by Ben B King.
