      A.J. Crumbaker Dies Suddenly At His Home In Manhattan Saturday ? A.J. Crumbaker, an old resident of this community, passed away suddenly at his home in Manhattan on August 8, 1936, at the age of 73 years, 11 months, and 1 day.

      In 1880 he came to Kansas with his mother and two brothers, his father having died in the Civil War. They drove through in covered wagons with four teams, settling about four and a half miles south of Onaga, Kansas. Here he met and married Hannah Jane Taylor on June 23, 1887.

      To this union were born eight children: Charles, of Onaga; James, of Indiana; Edith, of Ft. Riley; Margaret, of Meade; Mrs. Mary Johnson of Randolph; George of Manhattan; Mrs. Ethel Needham, of Onaga; and Mrs. Gladys Morris, of Newton.

      Mr. Crumbaker moved his family to Onaga at a later date. Here he took an active interest in the development of the community, serving as a member of the city council for several terms, also as a member of the school board, he being one of the first members of the Rural High School board. He likewise served several terms as township trustee. Sixteen years ago the family moved to Manhattan.

      He held membership in the Methodist church and also in the Masonic Lodge. He was a kind, sympathetic father, a good neighbor, and was held in high esteem by all friends and business associates.

      He is survived by his widow, eight children, seventeen grandchildren, one brother Ollie, of Wichita, and numerous other relatives and a host of friends.

      Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the First Methodist Church in Manhattan, conducted by Dr. Holman, the pastor. Music was rendered by a male quartette. Pallbearers were Roy Kimble, of Manhattan, and P.N. Grim, Jay Crum, John Grossnickle, James Wheeler, and Mitchell Tessendorf of Onaga. Burial was in the Manhattan Cemetery.
