Death: Jul. 1, 1889

On the 1st day of June, 1889, near Cowan's Station, Rockingham Co., Virginia, of the infirmities of old age, Pre. Daniel Showalter, age 87 years, 4 months and 28 days. Buried on the 3d in the Trissel church graveyard, followed to his last resting place by a large concourse of friends and relatives. Services were conducted by the Brethren Samuel Coffman and Samuel Shank from Ps. 90. There were born unto him eight children; four sons and four daughters. His companion, two sons and two daughters have preceded him to the eternal world, leaving four surviving children. His grandchildren number fifty-two living, and eleven dead, great-grandchildren, one hundred and five living and seven dead; one hundred and eighty-three descendants in all. Bro. Showalter was a zealous Christian, and an active laborer in the vineyard of the Lord. He was a man of forethought and sound in mind, and feared not to declare the whole counsel of God; a man of great meekness, lowliness and humility in all its forms; this he taught by precept and example, thus giving us a bright pattern of non-conformity to the world, and of self-denial, as the Savior has said: "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and follow me." The gospel appears to have been his meat and his drink, and in which he labored between fifty-five and sixty years; always early to church and ready for duty, often first at the place of worship, not only in fair weather, but rain or snow, heat or cold; ever advocating the true principles and doctrine of the Mennonite church. His seat in time of service was seldom vacant. May we never forget the earnest appeals and labors of our departed father and brother in the faith, and thank the Lord for his kind admonitions and words of comfort in the pilgrimage of life. ABRAHAM SHANK (from The Herald of Truth, Dec. 1, 1889)
