ANOTHER LABORER IN THE LORD'S VINEYARD GONE TO HIS REWARD

 

R.J. Smith of Jackson Township, Elkhart County, Indiana, departed this life on Wednesday, April 26th, 1893. He was born in Balk, Gaasterland, in Friesland, Holland, on the 12th of August, 1813, and was consequently 79 years, 8 months and 14 days of age. His early days were spent in attending school and manual labor as was, and is still the custom of the country. On the 22d of January, 1842 he united with the Mennonite church in the town where he was born. On the 13th of May, 1840, he was joined in marriage to Margaret J. Symensma. The fruits of this union were seven children, one of whom died in Holland when about two years old. John died at the aged of 19 about 26 years ago, and Jacob, shortly after his marriage with Hanna Christophel, died 8 years ago at the age of 26. Bro. Smith's aged widow and four children survive.

 

He was ordained to the ministry in 1847 and advanced to the office of bishop in 1849. He left Holland on the 9th of April 1853 in company with his fellow-laborer and minister R.J. Symensma, (who died some years ago) and others, 17 souls in all, and settled in Jackson and Union Townships, where they formed a little colony of Holland Mennonites which was increased by others coming over in subsequent years. Bro. Smith was a man of more than ordinary mental attainments. He was well read in biblical literature, history, both sacred and profane, and especially well versed in Mennonite history and Mennonite literature generally. Having been born in the same province and country as Menno Simons, the faithful preacher, promoter and defender of the doctrines of non-resistant faith, and feeling a deep and earnest interest in these doctrines and in the church, Bro. Smith devoted himself to the study and practice of these same doctrines. He was a man of mild and loving qualities. His whole purpose was ever bent upon preserving peace, harmony and fraternal feelings among all classes, both by precept and example he sought to hold together all in peace and unity. He was a man likewise of exceptional modesty. His extensive knowledge and ability to expound the Scriptures made it very desirable for him to take a prominent place in public services and instructions, but it was only through earnest solicitation that he would consent to do this, especially in the later years of his life, excusing himself on account of his language.

 

He was the leader of the little colony from Holland to this country, and among his people he maintained the position of pastor and adviser to the time of his death.

 

During many years he maintained in the neighboring school-house a church service in the Holland language, until the use of the school-house was no longer allowed him by those having charge of it, when he quietly left it, advising his people to worship with the American congregation.

He was taken with apoplexy with which he was afflicted six days. He never complained, and was perfectly resigned to the will of God and passed peacefully away. He was buried at the Whitehead Dunkard meeting-house on the 28th, where services were held in the English language by Noah Metzler from Luke 2:28, 29 and by J.F. Funk in the German. A large number of people were present.
