Kropf.--Daniel J., son of David and Magdalena Kropf, was born at Baden, Ont., March 3, 1861; died at his home near Harrisburg, Ore., Mar. 12, 1927; aged 66 y. 9 d. He was united in marriage to Sister Anna Hostetler, in 1885. He leaves his wife, 6 sons, 3 daughters, 16 grandchildren, 2 brothers, 4 sisters, and many other relatives and friends. One son and two daughters preceded him in death. At the age of 5 yrs. he with his parents moved to Missouri, and in 1880 he with his wife and two children moved to Hubbard, Ore. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior, in his early youth, and united with the Amish Mennonite Church. He was ordained to the ministry in 1893 at Hubbard, Ore. In 1911 he with his family moved to Harrisburg, Ore., where he was ordained a bishop in 1914. Death was due to paralysis, with which he was afflicted for a number of years, but was able to attend to his Church duties most of the time until June, 1926, and was bedfast for the last two months. He was very patient in his affliction and often expressed a longing for his heavenly home. As a shepherd and bishop of the flock he labored faithfully among them, and during the trying period of the late war they endured probably more than ordinary persecution for the fact that they still used the German language almost exclusively. The funeral was very largely attended and the following ministers took part in the funeral services; Jos. Schrock, Dan Erb, C. R. Gerig, Fred J. Gingerich, E. Z. Yoder, N. A. Lind. Texts, Isa. 40 :6-10 and Acts 20 :38. Burial in the Alford Cemetery.
