Nov. 22, 1860 to Elizabeth Mover, b. May 9, 1843; d. Apr. 23, 1917; resided at Fairland, his house being next to the oldest in the place; owned a farm south of the pike; evidently a. man of business, for he was executor of the estate of his brother Jo- slah. Hon. A. S. Krelder tolls that •when ho called on Jacob In refer- ecne to getting family records, Jacob had no time for such worldly things. The visitor insisted that God gave us our gifts and among other gifts was that to learn who were our ancestors. The elder was asked if he knew so and so was his cousin. Ho did not believe it, wanted to know how it was, and the visitor was hardly able to get away from the house. If the older was not troubled with such worldly things as ancestors, neither was he troubled with things so worldly as children. Ho had none. He was the bishop of the Brethren in Christ of the Dauphin and Lebanon District. ,Seo a previous article on Elder Henry Kreider of Campbelltown. We are of the opinion that we were told that Elder Jacob was at flrst United Brethren, and, that the school at Annvillo caused him to become River Brethren, later known as Brethren in Christ. He was elected to the ministry in 1871, and or-< dained bishop in 1887. He was doubtless a good housekeeper In the church; under him several houses were built in thedistrict, the ones at Fairland, Hummelstown and Har- rlsburg. lie and his wife are burled in the cemetery at the Brethren in Christ, on the hill north of Falrland. SARAH KREIDER, afore, next to the youngest daughter of Tobias of Cleona, m. in 1858 to Peter K.Shenk, b. Sept. 21, 1836; farmer east of Campbelltown, now retired in the town. Peter is in his 83rd year, his mind is good, and he tolls interesting things. He was the first of his father's family to get religion. It was In I860, when he was 24 years" old. The meetings were held in the school house north of Tobias Kreider's. The preacher was Rev. Lowry, of the United Brethren, whose son was a presiding elder of the same church. On this occasion many got religion. Among the number were Jecob Kreider, later the bishop, brother-in-law of Mr. Shenm, and Samuel Herr, the veterinary, on the hill north of the Heilig House. This was a few years be' ,re the split between the United Brethren and the United Christians. Peter bought his farm of 115 acres east of Campbellstown April 9, 1873, of Samuel Bowman, who had received part of It in 1839 from his father, Jacob Bowman, Jr., and the other part in ^858, which belonged to 226 acres received by Jacob, Jr., from his father Jacob, Sr., on March 22, 1825. Jacob Bowman, Jr., had children, Samuel, John, Christiana and Elizabeth, both single; Gathar* ine, m. David Fernsler and Maria, m. Thomas Lesher, a preacher of the United Christians. Samuel and hjs two single sisters, as well as Peter Shenk, left the United Brethren and went with Hoffman, who began holding meetlnsg at Brlghtbill's meeting house along the Horseshoe pike in 1867. About the time that Peter bought his farm here, 1873, the United Christians effected an organization at BrightblH'B. Peter says that the burden of Hoffman's preaching in those days was that the college is the world, comes from the devil, that the preacher is made by the Spirit of God, and that when educa. tion comes In the Spirit goes out. These two United bodies should be united. Sarah Kreider Shenk had children. 1
