201 "Auszehrung" consumption. Date of death seems to be incorrect in S0009. S0011, S0016 and S1000 put the date on 18 Apr 1876. Bender, Johann Georg (I218)
202 "Became ailing in later years and died of dropsy." (dropsy = edema) Pitz, Charlotte (I1520)

204 "Came with his parents to South Amana in April 1857, and there, in the presence of his parents, during a thunderstorm, was struck by a bolt of lightning and instantly killed. It was around 6 am. They had arisen and were getting ready for morning prayer services. The father had seated himself at the table and opened the book. The mother was seated next to her bed and Jacob leaning against his. The lightening bolt struck him as he was putting on his vest; it threw him backwards into the bed. His mother fell benumbed from her chair to the floor. Her husband dashed over, shook her and lifted her up, and she immediately regained consciousness. As he tried the same with his son, there was no sign on life; no reaction whatsoever to other attempts either. It was useless, he was and remained dead. This was the first instance of death by a stroke of lightening in the Community although there had been strikes of lightening into houses, but the Lord had been graciously protective. May He keep His protective fatherly hand over us and graciously avoid such and similar incidents of shock and sorrow." Source S0015 Schnezler, Jacob (I1241)
