STIFFLER.--Jacob Stiffler was born in Blair county, Pa., March 21, 1812, and died east of Prospect, Ohio, Nov. 21, 1897, at the age of 85 years and 8 months.

He was baptized in his infancy, instructed and confirmed in his youth, all by Rev. Schmick. He was a faithful member of the Evangelical Lutheran church all his life.

Jacob Stiffler united in marriage with Elizabeth Gast April 23, 1837, Rev. Samuel Klein officiating. Nine children were born of this union, four sons and five daughters. One daughter and the mother preceded Father Stiffler into eternity. He belonged to a family of twelve children. He moved to Ohio in 1835, and accordingly lived in this state sixty-two years. Mr. Stiffler was somewhat reserved, but had very decided convictions. He was interested in the progress of the world, but no less in the welfare of his church. He read his church paper, the Lutheran Standard, almost fifty-five years. Mr. Stiffler had been in feeble health for a number of years. He bore his affliction with resignation and died in the full assurance of everlasting life through Jesus Christ. The funeral services were conducted in the Lutheran church, Tuesday afternoon, D. Simon officiating. Text taken from II Cor. 4:16-18.
