He was the youngest of 5 brothers and 6 sisters, He was of the family of Christian and Rachel (Zook) Detweiler, who lived and died near Allensville, Pa., of whom 2 daughters survive (Sister Lydia Miller. of Elkhart, Ind., widow of Jacob R. Miller formerly from Iowa; and Sister Rachel Zook. aged 78, wife of Bishop John P. Zook of Belleville, Pa.). His wife and only child preceded him some years ago. He lived alone many years in the vicinity of La Junta, Colo. He was found shortly after becoming ill and immediately taken to the hospital and given the best of care, He was able to talk till the last few days of his illness. Scripture reading and prayer was offered almost daily in the earlier stages of his illness which he enjoyed very much. He showed a living testimony of faith in his Lord. Thus has closed a life that has been filled with sorrow and trial.
