Shank.--David Shank was born near Broadway, Va., Dec. 22, 1853; departed this life Apr. 27, 1910; aged 56 y. 4 m. 5 d. He grew to manhood in his native state, confessed Christ as his Savior, uniting with the Mennonite Church in what is called the Lower District in the valley of Virginia. Later on he went west, being a considerable time in a number of western states, met and married Emma Driver of Versailles, Mo., July 24, 1890. They made their home with the Morgan Co. congregation. He had planned for several years to make about a year's visit to his old home in Virginia and as it was necessary to regain his usual health left Missouri Oct., 1909, not in very good health for that purpose, thinking a rest all that was necessary to regain his usual health. He seemed to get stronger and better, enjoying himself very much with brothers and sister and friends.
The beginning of the New Year he had a nervous break down, slept but very little except under the influence of medicine and grew worse so gradually that the community was shocked by his sudden and unexpected death. He leaves a wife and daughter to mourn the loss of a kind husband and loving father, also three brothers and one sister. A little son preceded him to the spirit world. Buried Apr. 30, in the Zion grave yard near his father's old home, his body resting where his boyhood days were spent. His spirit has gone to the great God who gave it. Funeral services conducted by Christian Good and Joseph Geil. Text Prov. 27:1.
