Association about two years ago and was a faithful worker and always ready to advance the cause of Christ.  Funeral services were held by the writer.  E. J. Thompson.

I have not yet placed Katie in my Metzner family in Jay County.  Did locate her marriage record on September 27, 1894 in Jay County, Indiana to Henry Kile.  Henry was born September 19, 1862 in Marion County, Ohio and died September 15, 1933 in Jay County, Indiana.  Both are buried at the Mt.
