Jonathan Troyer (on back is written, “Really Jonas D. Troyer”)
In The Mennonites in Indiana and Michigan by J.C. Wenger, p. 334
“Jonas D. Troyer, 1811-1897. Buried in the Miller Cemetery, northwest
of the Eight-Square schoolhouse, and strangely the tombstone reads
Jonathan Troyer, by mistake. He was commonly called “Yohn”
(German abbreviation for Jonas), and someone must have thought that
“Yohn” stood for Jonathan.”

Includes filmstrips, tapes, & other audiovisual materials used by
Conference, 1974-1989. Also some slides on Mennonite Commission
for Christian Education, Jr. Boys / Wayfarers, slides 1962-66)
John R. Smucker transferred a number of slide sets
and slides from the Conference Office, Goshen, Indiana, to the
Archives, on October 18, 2000. Smucker came into the Archives
looking for several older sets of slides that he produced in the 1960s
and 1970s, as Conference Historian of the Conference. I could not
locate these older items, but when I contacted the Conference Office,
Administrative Assistant Charlotte Long found these, and made
arrangements for Smucker to transfer them to the Archives.
