In 1889 he was married to Elizabeth Beitzel, who died twenty-one years ago.

These with 20 grandchildren, 3 brothers, 4 sisters, and many other relatives and friends are left to mourn his departure. He accepted Christ as his Savior in his youth and united with the Mennonite Church, in which faith he lived until death. He found much comfort in reading his Bible, especially the last years. He was patient in his suffering and longed for the end to come. He was a kind and loving father, always willing to help wherever he could. Funeral services were held Oct. 24 at the Fairview Mennonite Church, conducted by Bro. M. S. Steiner. Text, Heb. 11 :10. Burial in Fairview Cemetery.
