      obituaries:

      ELDER JOHN G EBY
      "Into the home of Eld. Enoch Eby, Missionary to Denmark, was born a son in the year 1848. When a lad of only six or seven he left his Pennsylvania home with his parents and came West, to Illinois, within the bounds of the Waddams Grove church. There were spent his days of youth and young manhood. The responsibilities of the farm rested on him in the absence of his father on church work. At an early age he learned the carpenter trade. At the age of twenty he joined the church, and a few years later was chosen to the ministry.

      "In 1873 he went to Iowa but returned in 1876 to married Annie Price of Ogle County, Ill, whom he brought back with him to his Iowa farm. He preached for the Nora Springs church until 1884, when he moved his family to Morrill, Kans.,and five years later, to Marshall County, Kans., where he helped build the Vermilion, later the Richland Center, church, which he also served as elder for several years. Thirty-nine years' residence in this community endeared him to the widening circle of members and neighbors. His service was given freely, and his spirit was never soured by the transition to a supported pastor. Nor did he demur when his oldest son volunteered to serve the church in a foreign field. The church was in his thought to his dying day.

      "He is survived by two brothers: D B of Washington and L H of Indiana; a sister, Anneta Yarger of California; wife; six living children (a daughter preceded), thirteen grandchildren and a great grandchild.

      "After two months' illness he passed on in the presence of his wife, all his children, the pastor, Bro. M Blickenstaff, wife, and other friends on the evening of February 28, 1929.

      "Singing and prayer were frequently engaged in by the family as the end drew near. It was a blessed ending of a ripened life. -- E H Eby, St Joseph Mo."
