Benjamin and Magdalena Brackbill, aged 31 years, 8 months and 6 days. Funeral services were held at the house by Bishop Isaac Eby, who preached an appropriate sermon from the first clause of Ruth 1:21. This young firend, like many other, spent nearly all her days like the prodigal son, away from the Father's house. When she was stricken down upon her bed of sickness, and saw that death was near, she also saw the necesity of making preparation to meet her God. So she sought her Savior, was baptized, and received as a sister in the Mennonite church.
