Mount View Mennonite Cemetery, Alberta, Canada

Hello Maurice
Thank you for creating Mount View Cemetery and all the memorials. I am in the process of adding headstone photos to the memorials and hope you will consider adding the following information to the cemetery home page.

"Information obtained rom:
Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online

Mount View Mennonite Church (Aldersyde, Alberta, Canada)

Mount View Mennonite Church, located at Aldersyde, Alberta, between Okotoks and High River, originated through the colonization of rural Alberta in the late 19th century. Settlers to the area came from the United States and from Ontario. Elias W. and Catharine Bricker of Ontariowas the pioneer settlers in the area, coming with the first home-seekers' excursion sponsored by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1889. Other Mennonite families settled in the area in 1900 and 1901. The congregation was formally organized on 30 April 1901, shortly after S. F. Coffman from Vineland, Ontario had first conducted services in February 1901. The congregation began with nine members, six men and three women. The first baptism, conducted by Coffman, was held on 26 May 1901, and the first communion was held on 16 June of that year. Originally services were held in the Maple Leaf schoolhouse. The first building, measuring 28 x 48 feet, was built in 1902, with a subsequent building program in 1939. Norman B. Stauffer is considered the founding leader of the group. The language of worship was English. The church, one of three Mennonite churches in Alberta, was the location of the organizational meeting of the Alberta District Mennonite Conference (now Northwest Mennonite Conference) on 27 July 1903.

Pastoral leaders of the congregation included Norman B. Stauffer, Isaac Miller, A. H. Wambold, Menno Gingrich, Owen O. Hershberger, Howard O. Stauffer, Harold Boettger and A. B. Glen Good.

Mount View Mennonite Church dissolved in 1974. The church building is now used as a private residence, while the church cemetery is now used by Trinity Mennonite Church of Calgary."

Thank you again

RE: Israel Eby
Thank you. My friend is one of the PHS 1959 Classmates. I am glad you made contact so she could tell you about her siblings that are part of the Eby genealogy family. Recently I read one of your books online regarding Brutus History. I loved it! I plan to read the others soon. It fills in gaps for me about the area. (I have recommended it to two people so far.) I do hope the Little Traverse Historical Museum has copies of all of them––that someday soon you will make them available as e-books.

Hello there..

I added memorial #130177725 to the Brutus Cemetery. I did not see her listed and wasn't sure if she was in the cemetery records. Do you have any information on her?

Have been trying to find more on Daniel and Nancy but haven't had much luck other than they were last in Washington, had 4 children but only 2 survived.

Thanks again for all your help,
