September 22nd, in Branch county, Michigan, of heart disease, JACOB SUMMERS, at the advanced age of 83 years, 7 months, and 8 days. He was formerly of Lancaster county, Pa. He had been unwell for about two weeks, but had improved so much again that the physician pronounced him out of danger. On Sunday he appeared to be especially well. On Monday morning he rose, dressed, and sat down into his chair as usual, but was soon overtaken with a feeling of weakness, he desired to lay down again, and divesting himself of his coat and vest, he laid down, and in a few minutes expired. He was buried at Pleasant Hill on the 24th, where funeral services were conducted by J. F. Funk, and Henry Shaum. Source: Herald of Truth, Volume X, Number 10, Oct 1873.

MAST. July 6th, in Holmes Co., Ohio, Sister ELIASBETH MAST, widow of Abram Mast, aged 81 years, 7 months and 19 days. Buried the 7th. Funeral services by David Beachy. Sister Mast was of the Amish church. Her family name was Kurtz. She was born in Chester Co., Pa., and was of a very large family, of whom three brothers only survive her. Her husband preceded her seven months. Blessed are the dead which died in the Lord. "Friend after friend departs, Who hath not lost a friend?" Transcriber's note: Sister ELIASBETH MAST, ‎(note spelling of given name is as published)‎. Source: Herald of Truth, Volume XV, Number 8, Aug 1878.

MAST. Nov. 18th, near Benton, Holmes co., Ohio, Bro. ABRAHAM MAST, SR., aged 75 years, one month and 27 days. He was sick about five weeks, but confined to his bed only two days. Thus another saint has gone to his everlasting rest. He was a brother in the Amish Church. His life was a continuous chain of deeds of charity, and though dead, he yet speaketh. He will be missed by all who knew him, and by none more than by his aged and enfeebled companion. O what a comfort in the thought that our loss will be his everlasting gain! He lived the life of a Christian, and as such his light shone all around. He brought up a family of seven daughters, one of whom was called away before him. Buried in the presence of a very large concourse of relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted by John K. Yoder, of Wayne co., and A. Mast and David Beachey.
"Life's labor done as sinks the clay,--
Light from the load the spirit flies,
While heaven and earth combine to say,--
How blest the righteous when he dies."
