From the Republican Published 03 May 1884 in Oakland, Md.
"On the 23rds inst. Mr. Ferdinand Steiding died at the home of his father, in Garrett County, Md., near Deer Park, after a short, but severe siege of suffering from the typhoid fever. The deceased was born at Barton, Allegany County, Md., September 12, 1865, and was dedicated to the Lutheran Church by Holy Baptism on November 19th, 1865, by Rev. Huffman, the pastor. From his infancy he was a member of the Lutheran church, and from a child he was taught the Holy Scriptures which were able to make him wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus, I Tim.3, 15. Being taught the doctrines of the Bible and of the church, as embraced in the catechism, he was received into the full privileges and fellowship of the Lutheran church at Deer Park two years ago, by the present pastor, Rev. Stoudenmire, in which he remained a faithful member until death. His funeral was from the residence of his father, Barnhardt Steiding, to the Deer Park Lutheran church, thence to the cemetery. A large number of sympathizing relatives and friends attended the funeral. The service and sermon was by Rev. Stoudenmire, the pastor. The family has not only the sympathy of the church, but of the town and community.
The Lord comfort the hearts of the bereaved, and prepare them and us for death, that we may all enjoy the reunions of loved ones in heaven. Amen. "
