"Christian Bergey was born in Pennsylvania on June 10, 1846; died at the home of his son Abram, in Kent Co., Ont., Jan. 1, 1927; aged 80 y. 6 m. 21 d. He spent the early years of his life in Waterloo Co., Ont. In 1869 he was married to Barbara Getz. This union was blessed with twelve children, 6 sons and 6 daughters. Soon after his marriage he moved to Elgin Co., Ont., and then a few years later to Kent, Co., Ont., where he resided the greater part of his life. He had a name for thrift, industry and honesty in the community in which he lived. He united with the Mennonite Church in early manhood and took an active interest in the work of the Church, being Superintendent of the Mosa S. S. for a number of years. He was zealous in the training of his family. His wife predeceased him seventeen years ago. He spent the latter years of his life with his youngest daughter, Mrs. Herbert Eby at Listowel, Ont., then later at Hanover, Ont. About three months before his death he came back to reside with his oldest son, Abram, on the old homestead. He seemed to be back again amongst the old scenes and associations but it was not for long. The day before Christmas he fell and broke his leg and early on New Year,s morning his spirit took flight. He leaves to mourn his departure five sons,-- Abram, Norman, Nathaniel, Frank, and John-- and three daughters--Mrs. James Goodbrand, Mrs. Wilkie Taylor, and Mrs. Herbert Eby. His wife, one son, and three daughters preceded him in death. Funeral services were held at the residence of his son, Abram, on Jan. 4, 1927. Bro. S. F. Coffman of Vineland, Ont., preached the funeral sermon from II Tim. 4:7, 8. He was assisted by Pastor Windus of the local Baptist Church. Interment in the Purcell cemetery" By a son.
