converted and joined the Mt. Zion United Brethren chruch at the age of 23
years, and was a life-long member until his death, always faithful and true
to the church.
He was married to Catherine Wolf March 23, 1865, living together for
years. Within a few months after their marriage they moved to the old

Brother Deller will be missed by the family and home; also by the

Brother Deller was a hard-working man and always had his home and welfare
his family at heart. He was a good kind husband and father and won
esteem of his family. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were
precious jewels to him and his home and heard was always open to them in
welcome. He loved them so with his whole heart. He has been taken from us

victory and to God. We bow in humble submission and say not our will
thine, of God, be done.
