About Abaih D. Byler

Book = The Descendants of Abiah & Lydia (Zook) Byler, 51pp, 1993 - Fannie (second wife) wanted to move to town, so Abiah built a large block house in Belleville (61 Walnut St) and moved there, leaving David, Levi and the girls to run the farm. David & Sadie married soon after, planning to farm the home place, but because of some bad business deals Abiah had made, the farm had to be sold. So they moved to one of her father's farms. Ten years later, their farm came up for sale and David bought it. - Abiah had built the house at Blue Shadow Lane and later sold the farm to W.A.Thomas who started Blue Shadow Dairy. When he sold the farm to Dave & Sadie, he sold the dairy to Joseph E Sharp. - Later the three sisters, Mary, Barbara and Ella bought a house in Belleville. - After Abiah died, Fannie lost the house in town and moved in with the sisters until her death. They cared for her through a long illness. - Died after a lingering illness of about three months duration. He was known to his friends as "Oppie". - Was treasurer of Locust Grove when they built the church and they didn't have to borrow funds. - Byler.- Abiah D.

To this union were born 5 sons and 4 daughters. One son died in infancy. In 1918 he was again married to Fannie Yoder. He was devoted to his family, his home, and his church. He always had a desire to be with the children of God in worship, where his seat was seldom vacant. He united with the Mennonite Church in his youth. His health had been failing for the last 6 months. At times he suffered much pain, but was patient to the end. He is survived by his wife, 4 sons, and 4 daughters (Jesse and Annie, wife of Ezra Mayer, Mary, Ella, Levi, Rufus, David and Barbara); also one brother (Saul) and 18 grandchildren. The family was all called to the bedside of their father a few days before his departure. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Bro Samuel T. Yoder, and at the Locust Grove Church by the Brethren Eli Kanagy, John Mast, and J. D. Yoder. Texts, I Cor. 15 and John 14. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery near by. "We are lonely, very lonely, Since thou,rt gone from us away; But we,ll trust in God to meet thee In that land of endless day."
