I find Everhard Juday married to Elizabeth Beetey in Preble County.

Mrs Edith Juday was living in Pomeroy Iowa in 1933

Widlund - Christina Johnson Widlund was born Jan. 12, 1853, in Jonkoping Smaland, Sweden. She passed away June 23, 1933; aged 80 y. 5 m. 10 d., after an illness of two weeks. She grew up and received her early training in the land of her birth. At an early age she gave her heart to God and to the last kept a strong faith in her Lord and Master. Nothing pleased her more than to be up and doing the will of her Master and many were the sacrifices made for her faith. At the age of 18 she came to Keokuk, Ia., where she lived for about 6 years. In 1877 she came to Manson, Ia., and was there united in marriage to Frank Widlund who preceded her in death 5 years ago. To this union 8 children were born: Albin, Ernest, Harry, Selma, Hilma, Esther, Edith and Vinnie. They made their home on a farm near Manson and did their bit as early settlers to build up the community. She was a kind and considerate mother and ever ready to help the sick and needy around her. She was a strong and robust woman, content and uncomplaining to the last. For the last 18 months she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Joe J. Egli near Pomeroy, Ia., where she died. She is survived by Albin, Ernest, and Harry of Manson, Mrs. Edith Juday and Mrs. Joe Egli of Pomeroy, 4 sisters (Mrs. Louise Ostman of Courtland, Calif.; Mrs. Clara Ostegren of San Francisco; Mrs. Hulda West of Hughson, Calif.; Mrs. Ida Anderson of Minneapolis - 2 sisters and 3 brothers preceded her in death), 20 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, besides relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at Manson Mennonite Church Monday, June 26, Nick Stoltzfus and A.R. Egli in charge. Text, Job. 14:14. Buried in Rose Hill Cemetery.

Beiler - Levi, son of David S. and Rebecca Beiler, was born Jan. 15, 1868; died May 25, 1933; aged 65 y. 4 m. 9 d. He was born near Intercourse, Pa., and at the age of 16 moved with his parents into the Conestoga valley near Elverson, Pa. He was united in holy matrimony with Sarah Stoltzfus of near Zook's Corner, Pa., Jan. 17, 1892. He united with the Amish Church in his youth, and later united with the Amish Mennonite Church of Morgantown. He was a faithful member and very much interested in church affairs throughout his life, to the extent that he lived to see all his children united with the same church. He was engaged in farming all his life, up until the spring of 1928, when he built a home on a plot along the highway on his farm and desired living retired. He was instantly killed when the automobile which he was driving was struck by a heavy truck on the Pottstown-West Chester highway four miles south of Pottstown. His youngest daughter, Sadie, who was seated beside him received a fracture of the skull and numerous cuts about the face, and was severely scalped. After being in the Pottstown Hospital for 18 days and is now at home, she is nicely improving. To this union were born 15 children, 3 having preceded Father in death. He is survived by his wife (Sarah Stoltzfus) and 12 children (Mrs. D.L. Smoker of Parkesburg, Mrs. Levi Stoltzfus of Elverson, Mrs. D.M. Kurtz of Morgantown, Mrs. J.N. Stoltzfus of Parkesburg, Mrs. Jonas Yoder, Levi Jr., David, Isaac, Stephen, Irvin, Harvey, and Sadie all of Elverson). There are 29 grandchildren and 4 sisters (Emma, Mrs. Mast Stoltzfus, Mrs. Katie Stoltzfus, and Mrs. Jacob Yoder) all of Elverson. The funeral services were held May 27, at the home, conducted by Bro. Christian Kurtz; and at the Conestoga A.M. Church conducted by Bishops John A. Kennel and John S. Mast. Burial in the Mast's Cemetery.
"Father's chair is empty now, since he has gone to rest;
But we our heads do humbly bow and say, God thought it best."
