OBITUARY.
GREIDER. ­ On the 14th of October, 1891, in Greene Co., Ohio, of Diabetes, Bishop John M. Greider, aged 68 years, 7 months and 14 days. He was born in Lancaster Co., Pa., February 28th, 1823. He was united in marriage with Anna Erb, in 1847. To this union were born 13 children. In 1856 he moved to Clarke Co., Ohio, where he remained but a short time, and settled in Greene Co., Ohio, where he was dwelling at the time of his death. He was a faithful member of the Mennonite church for many years, and was ordained as Deacon Dec. 15th, 1861, to the Ministry Dec. 20th, 1862, and in 1872 to the office of Bishop. He was a faithful worker in the church, having charge of the church where he lived for over 30 years. The members of his church greatly feel the loss of their faithful shepherd. When his health began to fail and he saw that his end was approaching he saw the necessity of ordaining one to fill his place in the church, and on the 23d of August, 1891, the membership met for the purpose of ordaining a brother to the ministry. The lot fell on his oldest son Samuel E. Greider. In the death of Bro. Greider many hearts were made sad. He was highly esteemed by all who knew him and he will be missed in very many places, yet it is a great consolation to the mourning friends that they need not mourn without hope. A few weeks before his death he requested all his children to come to his home as he desired once more to admonish them. As they stood around his bed he admonished them very earnestly; among other things he told them to live in peace, and pointed them to humility, telling them not to indulge in pride and fashion, neither to cultivate it in their children. May his kind words never be forgotten by his dear children. In his sickness his sufferings at times were great, yet he had such sweet foretastes of heaven that he was enabled to bear it patiently. Several times he saw in a vision a beautiful tree loaded with fine fruit. One limb on that tree looked clear as crystal containing the water of life. On one occasion one of the family asked him if he wished to be fanned. “Oh no,” he replied, “the angels are with me and with their wings they fan me so that I feel just right.” He had a strong desire to “depart and be with Christ.” He requested to be buried in a plain, humble manner without any marks of adornment on his person or coffin. His body was laid to rest at Huber’s church on the 17th in the presence of a large number of people Services were conducted by Moses Brenneman, of Allen Co., Ohio, from 2 Kings 20: 1 and Jacob Stauffer, of Mahoning Co., Ohio, from Dan. 12: 3. He leaves a bereaved companion, six sons and four daughters, twenty-nine grandchildren, three brothers and five sisters to mourn the loss of one that was dear unto them. Three children and five grandchildren preceded him to the spirit world. He had selected the 40th Psalm to be read at his funeral. On the 6th of September he met with his little flock for the last time and preached his last sermon, having for his text the Parable of the talents. Peace to his ashes.

  1. Are you familiar with The Greiders by the Chiques Valley by Don Grider? I have a copy but cannot locate it now. Here is a link: http://books.google.com/books?id=_TpPAAAAMAAJ&q=inauthor:%22Donald+M.+Grider%22&dq=inauthor:%22Donald+M.+Grider%22&hl=en&ei=ggKpT6ivF6mH6QG-ppTDBA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=book-thumbnail&resnum=1&ved=0CEMQ6wEwAA.

    I am descended from Michael Greider. Our branch of the family has started a blog: http://greiderclan.wordpress.com/.

    • Thank you for the link to the The Greiders by the Chiques Valley by Don Grider book and to your website. It appears to me that Jacob Greider and Michael Greider were brothers and came to Lancaster from Switzerland at the same time because of their views on adult baptism and separation of church and state.

  2. Hello, I’ve enjoyed your write-up. I am also a decendent of Peter Grieder and Eva Degen. Peter’s father was Jakob Grieder born 1528 in the Bassel Country. Our branch of the family stayed in Switzerland until Johannes Grieder left in the late 1800’s. If anyone cares to communicate I can be reached at claudiagrieder@yahoo.com. Thanks,
    Claudia Grieder

  3. I’m curious what resources contained the information about the parents and grandparents of Jacob (1693-1758). Thanks.

    • Hi Tim

      My information came from a family document I will send separately.

      • Brad, Would you mind sending me your sources as well? I’d love to see if some onsite research could be done.

      • OK J Reve I will send that to you.
