Baker was born about three miles from the foot 
of the Blue mountains, near the banks of Martins 
Creek, where his early childhood days were spent. 
This was before the days of pul)lic schools, and the 
schools he attended were known as "Subscription'' 
schools, which were held in the winter in the Mennon- 
ite church. Avhich was fitted up f(n- the purpose. After 
removing- to Ohio he attended the comnnin schools for 
several years, and later Wadsworth Academy several 
terms. However, he received the bulk of his knowl- 
edge and mental discipline by incessant and close 
study by himself. At the age of 20 years he began to 
teach school, which he followed through his student 
life. After arriving at the age of 21 years he began 
the study of medicine at Wooster, Ohio, in the ottice 
of his uncle, Dr. John Overholt, in connection with 
teaching. In 1S.")2 and 1S->J he tocjk a course of lectures 
at the Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia, Pa. 
Later he went to Cleveland, O., where he also took 
lectures. In l>^">o he commenced the practice of medi- 
cine at Louisville, O., where he still resides, and is en- 
gaged in the practice of his profession. About lNf.0 he 
was chosen t<; the ministry of the Brethren in Christ 
church, and has served the church by preaching the 
gospel as much as his circumstances would permit for 
the last forty years. C: Infant. Alfre<l, Anna, Amanda,

It woukl be should lie not get well." to which he re- 
plied, "It is well with my soul," 1»ut he regretted 
being called away so young, and lifting up his hands 
he exclaimed, "It seems as though I was going empty 
handed." 

As he was just entering upon a regular college 
course full of hope and zeal in the Master's cause, what 
wonder that the thought of death was at first an un- 
welcome one? In early youth he gave his heart to 
Jesus, and though death came at a time unexpected, 
it did not find him unprepared. At 11 a. m. Sabbath 
morning, his usiml time for entering the earthly sanc- 
tuary, he raised his hands signaling all is well, and 
entered the heavenly sanctuary "where congregations 
ne'er break ui) and Sabbaths have no end.

school, viz. : the Physio-Medical. . In Profe.ssor 
Kost's ^YOl•k on " Materia Medico," and Dr. 
W. H. Cook's "Dispensatory" he is often quoted as 
authority. Dr. Overholt was a Christian gentleman 
of the highest order, and was a pillar in the church of 
Christ. He took his Christianity with him into ever^- 
walk of life where he was called to go. In business, 
in the sick room, in the chamber of death, and in all 
matters of religion, the Word of God was his guide. 
"With an unswerving faith he looked forward, with a 
hope that served as an anchor of his soul. He has 
passed to the realization of his brightest hopes. He 
has been gatheivd into the garner like a ripe shock of 
corn. 

Society has lo.«t one of its tried and true members. 
The children have been bereft of a devoted Christian 
father, whose example falls upon them as the choicest 
legacy, more precious than the richest earthly treas- 
ure, and the church has lost a brother whose counsel 
will be s<jrely missed. C: Mollie, Daniel, Elizabeth,

V. Rebecca Nash, h Jan. lo, 18:39 ; d Sept. 24, 1S62. 
She attended the common schools of her section until 
her 18th year. Bnt desiring to pursue a more com- 
plete course preparatory thereto she attended a Gram- 
mar school, but on aecount of ill health she dis- 
continued her school attendance. "When about 17 
years of age she began teaching school and taught' 
except when attending school, until within three 
months of her death. When in her ISth year she was 
converted and soon after joined the Ev. Ass'n ch., 
and though often in darkness with conflicts, doubts 
and fears, yet l)riglit hope as often intervened to cheer 
and light her path until the end came, and the crown 
won. Among her writings were many pieces of her 
own composition, mostl3' of a religious cliaracter, 
that speak well of her poetical talents. We make 
room for one written for an intimate friend and 
schoolmate : 

KKSPONSK. 

You smooth the tangles from my hair 
With gentle touch and tend 'rest care. 
And count the years ere you shall mark 
Bright silvery threads among the dark — 
Smiling the while to hear me say, 
"You'll think of this again some day! 

" Some day !" 

I do not scorn the power of time, 
Nor count on years of fadeless prime: 
But no white gleams will ever shine 
Among these heavy hx-ks of mine. 
Ah, laugli fts gayly as you may. 
You'll think of tiiis again some day. 

Some day I 

Some day I shall not feel as now 

Your soft hands move about my lirow ; 

I shall not slight j'our light commands. 

And draw the long brai<ls through my hands; 

I shall be silent and obey, — 

And you — you will not laugli th<it da;/, 

That day ! 



66 THE NASH HISTORY. 

I kuow how long- your loving- bands 
Will linger with tliese glossy bunds, 
When yon shall weave my latest crown 
Of these thick braidings long and brown ; 
But you shall see no touch of gray 
Adorn their shining lengths that day, 

That day ! 

And while your tears are falling hot 
Ui)on the lips which answer not, 
You'll take from these one treasured tress. 
And leave the rest to silentness, 
Remembering- that I used to say, 
'^You'll tJiink of this again some day,

Moyer at an early age began dealing operations on 
the 100 acres of forest land purchased for him by his 
father in Clinton twp., Lincoln Co., Out., upon which 
he settled and occui)ied until the time of his death. 
He also learned the shoemaker's trade, and during the 
early years of his married life made and mended the 
"footwear" for the family. His educational advan- 
tages were very limited, having enjoyed the privileges 
of but one term at a German school tauglit by his 
father, and l)y his own further efforts he ultimately 
acquired sufficient education to meet the exigencies of 
the times. He was always interested in the educa- 
tional matters of the community, and served his own 
school section at various times as trustee. He kept 
his home supplied with good books and papers in 
both hinguages. Mr. Moyer was a man of extremely 
mild and genial disposition, quiet and unassuming, 
and given to hospitality. He was dcjmestic in his 
tastes, and deeply devoted to his family and home 
life. Of Menuouite ancestry, lie was an adherent of

after teaehini^- three nionth.s, he decided to make 
teaching- hie life work and took a course in the Nor- 
mal School and followed teaching- until 18(38. In early 
youth he was converted and united with the Ev. 
Ass'n ch. In 1S57 he began to exercise his talents for 
the Lord in Church and Sunday school work. Feeling 
imi)ressed that he should g(j forth as a herald of 
the cross of Christ, he finally yielded to the call and 
was given work as a local preacher in 1S67. At the 
next Annual Ctjnf. lie was licensed as probationer and 
sent as junior preacher to Ui)per "Woolwich Circuit. 
In IStJO he was sent to Blenheim Circuit ; Hamburg- 
Circuit, 1871-2; Lincoln and Gamsbor(j Mission. ls7:>-7(), 
and Campden Station one year; Hespeler Mission, 
1877; Crediton Station, l&NU ; Hespeler Mission, lNS;i. 
In 1884 he was elected Presiding- Elder and sent to 
Ottawa District, and also as pastor of Golden Lake 
Mission. In 18*7 he was stationed on the North Dis- 
trict ; 18SS, on the South District ; and, in 1889, on the 
West District, remaining until 1892, when he was re- 
elected and returned to the former district. On Sab- 
bath morning-, Mar. ll,l.s9o, while serving an appoint- 
ment at Norriston, (3nt., he was taken sick and sank 
helpless in the pulijit. He was taken to the house of 
a friend where he remained until he recovered sufficient- 
ly to return to his home. His condition was such 
that by his physician's advice he spent the summer in 
Manitoba; but all in vain. He died Oct. 'i, 189:3. His 
remains were brought home and buried in the Lin- 
gelbach cemetery. His funeral was attended by an 
immense gatheringof friends, among them 2(5 ministers 
of the Ev. Ass'n. His main forte as a preacher lay in 
his ability as an evangelist. His sermons were of an 
awakening kind, .sending conviction to the heart of 
the sinner, and b^- his pathos and tender synipath\- 
leading him to accept salvation thi-dugh the Lord 
Jesus Christ; and thus the Lord gave him many seals 
to his ministry on every pastoral chiirge he lias 
served. C :

Joseph ra second wife, Florence E. Smiley of New En*^- 
land parentage, In 18«7. Re.s. 1316 N. 11th St., Phila- 
delphia, Pa. 

Joseph j^rew up a diffident, backward boy, yet 
not without a fair amount of ambition. His school 
days, after he was he was ten years old, were limited 
to about three months in winter, wherein many days 
were "missed," fully one-third of the time. When he 
was nearly 17 years of age, a slim, pale, beardless 
young man from Vermont had charge of the school 
for the winter. His brcjther, the Rev. John C. Hyde, 
from New Britain had charge of the Baptist interest 
of the nelghborhocxl, centered at Point Pleasant. This 
frail stranger, Damon Y. Hyde, wrought a revolution 
in the mode of teaching and in the spirit of the school. 
Every scholar loved and most of them idolized him. 
As he was bi<lding us good-bye he said, "Joseph, what 
do you intend t(» make of yourself?" adding imiiH-d- 
iately, "get a good schooling." Never had such a 
question come to the farm lad l>efore. but that advice, 
coming from one so much admired, made an Indelible 
impression. The great oliject thereafter was to get 
more time for school. This cijuld not be done at liome. 
The work on the farm was exaetln;;, admitting of not 
niorethan two holidays from January 1st to Decem- 
l)er:{Oth, and there was but one older brother at home 
to help. 

Joseph's father \uu\ always streiiously held that 
every boy should have a tratle, and as a practical 
proof of his thei.ry had given two of his thnv elder 
sons a trade, and was not getting an extra schooling 



86 THP: NASH HISTOKY. 

to take the plnoe of a trade? But it would cost 
mone^'. Tiie boy's portion of a few hundred doUart* 
from his mother, left by his j;randfather, secured the 
means for a start at some higher school. But liis 
fatlier's consent must be liad. How to secure thiK 
and meet every objection was the hourly study of 
many weeks and months. There wa.s no one to open 
the way or intercede for him. Witli Ids father "no" 
W£is irrevocable, a blast of every hope. At length an 
opportunity t)ccurved; they arj^ued thecase; (jbjections 
were met. The time to go, when school oi)ened, anci 
the place was disciissevl, but the father never said 
"yes." 

The winter was advancing and time was g:rowing: 
more and more precious. An acquaintance was then 
at Beverley Institute, Beverley, N. .1. The father of 
the Principal of the .school was a distant neighbor of 
old acquaintance, and the young man at scliool was 
an orphan boy raised by the old family ydiysician. 
Here, then, "were points of contact" to disarm ojjjio- 
sition. When the fall work was done his father con- 
sented to allow him to accompany his brother to 
market. He was then far in his 19th year, and it was. 
the third time he had ever been to Philadelidiia. 
When here he went to a favorite nepheAv of his father 
to whom he stated his plans, and expressed a desire 
to visit Beverley and have un hiterview with the 
Principal, which they did. 

A few weeks afterward he told his father of the 
visit, the cost, the time to go, &c. As the time 
drew near the more tense I)ecame his anxiety, until 
within two weeks of the time to go, he said sternly : 
"Now, you tried to get yourself away; are you g:et- 
ting readj- to f!:(i, an<l what must you have as outfit?" 
Thus, he simply allowed him to go. AVho can esti- 
mate the ecstacy of that moment? Thus he spent 
his first term at Beverley Institute; then teaching: 
school, himself going to scliool: and Avith a final 
term at the Lancaster ((j. Normal School, his school 
days were ended. ALsu during this time he had been 
west a few summers securing data for ctninty maps. 
When the Civil war broke out the advance of labor

and material darkened the financial hopes which had 
been so bright, and apparently prosi)erou.s. 

In Oct., iNfJl. he was married to his old schoolmate, 
Eliza Shaddini;er, and the next spring: began to read 
medicine with Dr. A. il. Cooper, at Point Pleasant. 
In the excitement and bustle of the war he spent the 
fall and winter as attendant in a military hospital in 
Harrisburj^. In the spring of 18(>3, seventeen months 
after their marriage, his wife died, leaving a little girl 
six weeks i>]d who. when abont eight months old, 
joined her niothei-, where there is no piirting or sad 
farewells. He then resnmed the stndy of medicine, 
attending a course of lectures at the University of 
Michigan, graduating at Jefferson Medical College, 
Mar. 11, ISt).'), and soon after located in Philadelphia, 
where he still continues. (,' :

a comparison.'* In the sprinj? of ISU") he l>ecnnie a 
member of tlie editorial stuff of the Philadelplila 
Ileconl. Left this at the solicitation of Edward Bok, 
editor of the Ladies' Home Journal, to accept the 
position of associate editor of the Saturday Evening: 
Post In 18'JS. In 181)9 lie was appointed art manag;er 
of same. In Marcli, 1901. he resigrned to enter the 
field of advertising-, furnishing high grade designs, i)ut 
was taken ill witli pneumonia and barely "pulled 
through." About tliis time, Frank Leslie's Popular 
Monthly, liearing that Mr. Nasli had left the Saturday 
Evening Post, opened negotiations to secure his ser- 
vices. Tlie advertising field, liowever, looked so prom- 
ising that he refused to abandon it. The matter was 
compromised, and now Mr. Nash is Advertising Man- 
ager of the Beck EngravingCompany.oi Phila<lelphia, 
one of the largest eoneerns of its kind in America, and 
is Art Manager of Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly in 
New York. This necessitates spending every other 
day in New York. Mr. Nash's home is at Wyncote, 
Pa., a beautiful suburb about 10 miles out of Phila- 
delphia. C :
