JOHN NUSBAUM

Obituary of Immigrant: John NUSBAUM (Hans Nussbaumer) + comments

Preacher JOHN NUSBAUM + comments

Newspaper: Herald of Truth May 1826 (sic)

Departed this life on the 7th of April, in Clinton township, Elkhart Co., Ind. Preacher, John NUSBAUM, age 75 years, 3 months and 10 days.

Bro. NUSBAUM was born in the Canton, Berne, Switzerland, in January 1801. His parents and grandparents were members of the Mennonite Church. He came to this country in company with his brother Peter, when he was about eighteen years of age, and lived in Ashland County, Ohio. Here he was ordained to the ministry, probably by Bishop Nold, a position which he faithfully filled for upwards of 45 years. He was ordained to the ministry during his single days. He afterwards married Elizabeth PLETCHER, and about the year 1860, removed to Clinton township, Elkhart Co., Ind. where he resided at the time of his death. His first wife died in the Fall of 1847. Sometime in 1849 he married his first wife's sister, Mary PLETCHER, who died on the 5th of April 1869, just two days after her son Daniel had died. He was the father of fifteen children, six sons and two daughters by the first wife, and three sons and four daughters by the second wife. All these are living except one son of the second wife who died only two days before his mother, as mentioned above. Besides these he leaves 44 grandchildren and three great-grand-children.

He had been failing fast for several months, but seemed entirely resigned to the Father's will. For sometime he appeared conscious of his approaching end, and in view of it frequently repeated suitable passages of Scriptures and hymns. On one occasion when told that there was no prospect of his recovery, he repeated passages from the Psalms and a part of the hymn "Wer Weiss Wie Nahe Mir Main Ende." On Monday, April 3rd, he had a stroke of palsy which paralyzed one side, and made him entirely speechless. On Friday night, he calmly fell asleep in Jesus and was buried on Sunday, April the 9th, followed by an immense concourse of relatives, friends, and neighbors. He was universally beloved and respected by all who knew him. Funeral services were held by J.J. Weaver, Martin, Kreider and others.

We miss father Nusbaum; Not only will he be missed at home, in the family circles, but in the neighborhood and in the church. His failing strength, and bowed form, continually reminding us of the time when he should no longer go in and out with us, made him only the more dear unto us all, and we will remember his tender and fatherly exhortations, his kind instruction, admonishing us to follow the footsteps of our Redeemer, and be prepared for the final change. How often he repeated. "This May be the Last time" --the last visit I shall make to you, and now we see it fulfilled before our eyes; he has gone the way of all flesh, but though dead, he still speaketh. His life was that of a consistent Christian; his conversation was pure and edifying, his public teaching were earnest and purely evangelical. [etc. ]
