For the most part, the following personal information has been transcribed as written, but early newspaper microfilms are often difficult to read. I have tried to provide the information as accurately as possible, but errors can still occur. Punctuation has been changed occasionally for clarity; where dates or other details seem to be in error, are missing or just not legible, that has been noted. Although every effort has been made to note each personal item in a particular issue, some may have been missed. Please consult the microfilm reel if you feel an error has occurred.

Died: In Camp Pine Grove, near Corinth, Miss., July 18th, of typhoid fever, Sergeant Joseph M. Corey of Co. “G,” 63d Reg., aged 18 years, 6 months and 19 days. Joseph was a young man of lively, amiable disposition, a dutiful son, a faithful friend, and with a heart ever alive to the call of patriotism. He was one of the first to shoulder his musket at the commencement of the war, and continued in the army until his death. After his return from the three month’s campaign in Western Virginia, he obtained a Lieutenant’s commission, and labored faithfully in the recruiting service, until he took his final leave of Marietta with his regiment. He was a general favorite throughout the camp, and during his illness of four weeks, received every attention from his sympathizing comrades. It is a consolation to his bereaved friends at home to know that his end was such as he desired - he died in the cause of his country. [Memorial poem follows.] Signed: M.W.

Friday, Aug 15 1862

Died: On Friday afternoon last, [Aug] 8th, a terrible accident occurred in Macksburg, in this county, which resulted in the death of Miss Jane Atkinson, daughter of Isaac Atkinson, formerly of Newport township. The young lady very incautiously undertook to kindle a fire in the cooking stove by pouring carbon oil from a tin can on the embers. A flash and an explosion instantly followed and the shrieking girl was enveloped in a terrible mass of flame. Aid was immediate, but so shockingly was the unfortunate creature burned that death came to her relief the same evening. She was about 17 years of age.

Friday, Sep 5 1862

Married: Aug. 28, by Wm. Johnson, J.P., Abram Price and Harriet Wilson, both of Warren.

Married: Aug. 18, by Rev. Thomas Wickes, David S. Hoffman and Miss Rosaltha Wolcott, of Watertown.

Married: Aug. 24th, by Rev. L.G. Leonard, Timothy L. Buell and Laura Thorniley, of Marietta township.

Died: The following notice of the death of John Mills Amlin, son of James M. Amlin, formerly a well known citizen of Washington county, is copied from the Ironton Register of Aug. 28th. Let us add our testimony from an eight years’ intimate acquaintance, that the subject of the notice was one of the most worthy and truly excellent young men that we have ever known. Departed this life, in Ironton, on the 25th, J. Mills Amlin, aged 22 years and 6 months. The above was a young man well known by everybody in this community, and, therefore, needs no eulogy, as all are ready to speak of his modesty, amiability and goodness He came to this place with his parents in 1854 and with them united with the Presbyterian church by letter. He made a profession of religion at the early age of 13 years and has been an active and consistent Christian until the hour of his death. On the night before he died, he was told that he could not live. He took the news, as not wholly unexpected. After a few minutes consideration of the approaching event, he replied, “I am prepared to die, for I know in whom I have believed.” He then expressed a desire to see as many of his friends as could be collected, whom he exhorted to do as he had done, “to trust in that Saviour who had done so much for him.” Taking them by the hand he spoke of Jesus as being “very precious to his soul,” as being “with him in the dark valley of death,” and exhorting them “to prepare to die by believing in Jesus Christ, who was able to keep that he had committed until that day and thus to meet him in heaven.” He repeatedly spoke of heaven “as his home” and that he desired all to “meet him there.” He then sent messages to other friends not present and to his Sabbath School class, urging all to “give their hearts to the Saviour in the days of their youth.” He then desired prayer to be offered by his father and others. Then h e requested all to sing - selecting himself such hymns as these, “God is love,” “There is sweet rest in heaven,” “Salvation is free,” &c. During some hours, his whole demeanor was that of the most perfect self-possession and calmness. There were times when his mind wandered slightly, but during those period he said nothing on the subject of religion. When his relations and others were overcome with their emotions, he remained altogether above and beyond such earthly sympathy and seemed to hold sweet communion with his Savior and the heavenly world. Observing how his mother wept, he said, “Mother, weep not for me; my mind is all peace and joy at the near prospect of being permitted to enter heaven.” Thus has passed away from among us an amiable Christian man. May his death be a beacon light to all his friends and associates, thus stimulating them to imitate his example and be prepared, as he was, to leave this world, though unexpectedly called, and enter that of the redeemed in heaven.

Died: In Harmar, on the 9th, of a disease of the heart, Mrs. Elisa W. Putnam, wife of Douglas Putnam, and eldest daughter of the late Levi Whipple, Esq., in the 54th year of her age. Mrs. Putnam was a woman of great energy, of ardent feelings, and of the most decided Christian character. Zealously and fearlessly sympathizing in the advancement of human rights, in all works of moral reforms, in the cause of the poor and friendless and in her country’s struggles, she freely used, in their aid and advancement, the liberal means with which a kind Providence had blessed her. The Sabbath School, the church and female prayer meeting will all testify to her constancy and devotedness. She was endowed with a character in which vigor and decision were traits peculiarly marked, yet her nature was so affectionate, sympathetic and tender, that those who knew her most intimately loved her best. During a sickness of six weeks, she was a great and almost constant sufferer, but no word of murmuring escaped her lips. Her spiritual affections seemed to grow and ripen under the best of discipline and trial. [This particular section of the newspaper page is mostly illegible.]

Friday, Sep 19 1862

Married: the 11th, by John Test, J.P., Josiah Wright, of Capt. Ellis’ cavalry, and Miss Adeline H. Wilson, of Adams township.

Died: In Harrison Co., Va., Mrs. Mary Maddox, wife of Rev. Matthew Maddox, and daughter of the late Caleb Emerson, Esq., of this city, aged 51 years. [Illegible]. At the age of fourteen, she became a subject of renewing grace and united herself with the Baptist Church, in this place. She was one of its consistent members and from that time till her death, she honored her profession and illustrated the grace of God by a holy life. The field of her husband’s ministerial labor has been for the most part in western Va., and she was a valuable helper and a cheerful partaker of all the hard labors and self-denials incident to the work of his holy calling in such a field. She loved the gospel and believed in its teachings, its priceless value, and for the ___ was willing in the spirit of Christian ___ to deny herself and bear her Cross. She was in all her relations unobtrusive, gentle, kind and faithful. [Last sentence of this obituary is illegible.]

Died: In U.S. hospital, in Mississippi, June 11, 1862, of the 63d Ohio, after an illness of six weeks, Charles W. Brown, only son of Parley and Charlotte Brown, of Beverly, Washington Co., Ohio, in his 22d year. About a year ago, on the day he was 21, he volunteered and faithfully served his country until his death. He was with his regiment when it left Marietta for the South, and at Island No. 10, New Madrid, and other places, he labored, fought, suffered and triumphed by night and by day for his country. He, like hundreds of other ones, would have preferred to have fallen with the slain on the battle field, but kind Providence ordered otherwise. Had he lived a few days longer, I am informed by the best of authority, he would have been promoted to a Lieutenancy, a position he was well competent to fill, which had not escaped the notice of the Colonel. His Chaplain says, “He was a model in morals, in gentlemanly bearing, and as a soldier, and won the esteem and love of all noble hearts who knew him.” The same has always been true of him everywhere. He was a model son and brother. He has left an untarnished reputation, an amiable Christian and gentlemanly character, and many friends and relatives who feel the loss of such a noble spirit. He fell, but the double honor of the Christian and soldier, rested upon him and endears his memory. May a kind Heaven sustain the afflicted father and mother and only sister. Signed E. Ellison.

Friday, Oct 24 1862

Died: On the 19th [of Oct], in Newport, of diphtheria, Weston Thomas Warren, son of Elbridge G. Warren, aged 9 years.

Died: Elza and Elwood Morris, twin brothers, were born in Watertown, Washington county, Ohio, Sept. 29, 1840. With an elder brother they volunteered in the 77th Regiment, O.V.I., in November 1861, in Co. B, Capt. Mason. At Camp Dennison, from exposure, Elwood was taken with bleeding at the lungs, but he recovered somewhat and went on with his regiment. They both fought at Shiloh and were unhurt. Moving toward Corinth, Elwood was unable to proceed and was left behind. For a long time none of his friends could learn his whereabouts. In July, his friends received a letter from him at Evansville, Ind., stating that he had been sick with fever and small pox. His physician soon sent him home, saying that he was in consumption. He began to get better. Elza endured the long and fatiguing march (and counter-marching) to Memphis, thence went to Alton, Ill. There he was cut down with fever, dying Sept. 16, 1862. In view of his speedy death, he requested his elder brother to take his body home, and he died a praying penitent. His brother started home with the body. On the arrival, the diphtheria was in the family, and one of its members was then lying a corpse, on the evening of Sept. 19, when the wagon stopped before the house. The shock was almost too much for Elwood in his feeble condition. Three days after the funeral, Elwood was taken with diphtheria. He soon was able to speak only in a whisper. He suffered much, but endured it with patience. He knew his end was nigh and shuddered, and said he was afraid to pass the dark valley alone. He was directed to his Saviour; he requested his brother to pray for him, after which he became more reconciled. “Meet me in heaven,” he said and died at 12 o’clock noon, Oct. 15, 1862. Thus in the morning of life they have passed away. We deeply sympathize with their bereaved parents who have given their sons to die for their country. [Contributor’s name illegible.]

Mr. Racer was on Wednesday attending to his daily vocation as usual, and on Sunday, at 2 A.M., was a corpse. Thus has passed away from among us one of our best and most useful citizens, who leaves a large family of relatives and friends to mourn his loss. Mr. Racer died as he had lived, fully in the belief of God’s universal goodness over all his works. Few men have passed through the world without making more enemies. A kind, affectionate, and indulgent husband and father, he was by them considered almost faultless and nearly idolized. Not only was he always prompt to administer to their early moral and social wants, but was at all times ready and willing to discharge his every duty as a neighbor, friend, and citizen.

Her illness was brief, many of her friends in town not knowing it was serious until they were shocked by hearing of her death. She was a kind neighbor, a faithful friend, an affectionate wife and mother, a true hearted woman. She had been from early life a member of the Presbyterian church, and for many years her mansion was that of great hospitality, at Hanging Rock, where this writer first knew her, and afterwards at Ironton. She had been in Marietta but a comparatively short time - a little over four years - but she had endeared many to her. Her funeral was on Monday afternoon of this week, attended by a large concourse of friends, the services being conducted by President Andrews, of Marietta College.

Died: In Palmer, Dec. 3 of diphtheria, John E. Danley, only living son of Robert I. and Mary Danley, in his 14th year.

She was truly a tender and loving wife, a kind and affectionate mother. Her sickness was protracted and severe, yet she endured it with Christian fortitude, for her trust was in Christ who was her stay in life and support in death.

Died: In Palmer, of diphtheria, Dec. 13, 1862, John Breckenridge, Jr., aged 36 years, 6 mos., 13 days. Mr. Breckenridge was a man of sterling character, kind and considerate in his family circle, and possessing unbounded influence in the society in which he moved. His loss is felt by all who knew him. His remains were followed to the grave by several hundred friends and neighbors.

Died: In Dunham, Dec. 3, Mrs. Lucy Angeline Ellinwood, wife of S.D. Ellinwood, Esq., aged 45 years. Mrs. Ellinwood’s disease has cast a gloom over this community never before experienced here. In the prime of life and one of the most prominent members of this community, always cheerful, hers was a happy home. She took a deep interest in the welfare of her neighbors. When sickness made its appearance anywhere in her large circle of acquaintances, she was always ready to assist, and many there are in this community who will long recollect her kindness and sympathy in the hour of their affliction. But she has gone to that better land and we but express the feelings of all when we tender to the bereaved husband and family our warmest sympathy in the hour of their deep affliction. [Memorial poem follows.]

In 1810, in consequence of feeble health, he returned to his native State, but again in 1820 he came again to this State, where he has resided in the counties of Washington and Morgan up to the time of his death. Although a member of no particular church, he was a strict observer of the “Golden Rule,” and lived truly an exemplary and Christian life. He leaves a large circle of children, and numerous friends (for who that knew him were not his friends?) to mourn his loss. He lived and enjoyed life, to ripe old age, and his society will be much missed and lamented in the sphere in which he moved. Signed: H.E.V., dated Dec. 27, 1862, Vincent.

He joined the service last August. He had been sick of typhoid fever for several weeks, but was recovering until near a week before his death when he took a relapse. His father, hearing that he was very sick, at once left that he might assist in taking care of him, but did not reach Falmouth until he had been dead and buried. His remains were taken up and brought home for final interment. An affectionate son and brother, entering the service from patriotic motives, he became a faithful soldier, and though he was not called to fall on the battle field, he was none the less a martyr in his country’s cause. During his sickness he was most kindly cared for by his fellow soldiers in the Battery. A young man of much promise and blameless moral character, he was much esteemed by a large circle of friends, who attended his funeral on Wednesday, the 14th [of January.]

Died: In Wood county, West Virginia, on the 5th [of Dec], of typhoid pneumonia, George W. Henderson, Jr., in his 21st year. He was a member of Marietta College from which place he was compelled to retire to his home by the disease, which after lingering but severe suffering of more than three weeks, terminated his life. While we mourn our loss in the untimely death of our young friend, it is the privilege of one acquainted with him from his childhood, to bear testimony to his many virtues and also to commend them for imitation by all with whom he was associated.

Died: In Union township, of diphtheria, Miss Josephine Quinby [age illegible, might be 38 years]. Josephine the orphan is gone, gone to that beautiful country where sickness and sorrow are not known, gone to mingle her sweet voice with the voices of bright angels that are singing their everlasting anthems of praise to Him that ruleth eternal and to the lamb forever.

Died: At Belpre, in this county, Feb. 19th, Mrs. Sarah E. Howe, aged 80 years. The deceased, whose maiden name was Sarah Emerson, was born January 5, 1783, at Ashby, Massachusetts.

She emigrated to Marietta about 45 years ago and was, for many years, an acceptable and beloved teacher there. Some of the most esteemed citizens of Washington County have been her pupils. Mere influence for good in society was wider than the sphere of her calling. In 1827, she married Deacon Perley Howe, of Belpre, where she continued to reside till the time of her death, striving to imitate the example of her Saviour, and progressing in the divine life through trial and suffering. She possessed a clear and well cultivated mind, and warm and kindly sympathies. She felt deeply for the oppressed, and was enthusiastic in her attachment to the cause of Right. She rendered herself highly useful in the education and guardianship of youth. In her last sickness, she expressed the same reliance on the Redeemer and the same trust in Divine Providence which had been the governing principle of her life. The excellent discourse at the funeral by Rev. Mr. Curtis was founded on the words of the Psalmist, “Thou wilt guide me by they counsel and afterwards receive me to glory.” [Memorial poem follows]

It is God’s doing, murmur not at His will. “God is love.” He cannot err. Not a sparrow, without his permission, falleth to the ground. May the consolations of the glorious Gospel of Christ sustain the friends of the deceased. Brother, farewell! Thou art far from the reach and above the ravages of time and war and change and death! His remains were sent home on the same boat in charge of Lieut. Day, of Watertown. Reader, “Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as yet think not the Son of Man cometh.” Signed: W.M.

She was a good girl, considerate, gentle and kind. For one young, she possessed unusual faith in h er divine Redeemer, and love for her Heavenly Father and awaited with anxious longing for the time to arrive when God should send his Angel to deliver her from the bondage of this body, and bid her come home to her heavenly rest. Her remains were brought to Harmar, to the residence of H.W. Smith, where, before burial, religious services were held and consolatory remarks made to relatives and friends by the writer. Signed: M.

Friday, April 13. 1863

Died: In Salem, March 24, 1863, Lieut. John M. Palmer, of the 36th O.V.I. The battle of life with him is over. He has lain aside his armor and gone to that land where the confused sounds of war are heard no more and where “the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.” He had been in the service of his country ever since August 1861. He was in the memorable battles of Lewisburg and Antietam and at every post he showed himself to be a patriot, a good soldier, a man of nerve who was willing to do and dare and suffer anything, all things for the salvation of his country. As a citizen, he was respected for hiss integrity and gentlemanly bearing, as a Christian he was loved and honored by the members of his church, as an Odd Fellow he stood high in the estimation of his brethren. And being a Christian in truth, he honored and blessed every relationship of son and brother, husband and parent, with a sweet and gentle spirit and a life of fidelity and good works. Surely such a life must be an acceptable service on the altar of liberty - on the altar of our country. His funeral was attended by a very large number of people at the Universalist Church in Salem, March 27th, where a sermon was preached by this writer, [Signed] J.W. McMaster.

Her death occurred about 18 months after the melancholy death by drowning of her only son, Kincaid, a promising young man, a dreadful affliction to her, but borne with Christian submissiveness. She was a most devoted wife and mother, beloved by all who knew her. For several months she had been a great sufferer, confined to her bed by a partial paralysis. The constant kindness of friends, the deep affection of her family, and the support of religion enabled her to bear patiently her painful and protracted illness. Her funeral was attended on Monday, the 18th, by a large number of friends, Rev. M. Riley officiating.

Died: April 5, 1863, of pulmonary consumption, at the residence of her husband in Belpre township, Mrs. Lydia Curtiss, wife of Horace Curtiss, aged 67 years. The deceased will be fondly remembered by a large circle of friends and relatives as a lady possessing largely those social qualities fitted to confer happiness upon all her acquaintances.

Died: In the hospital at Carthage, Tenn, March 20, 1863, of pneumonia, Corporal J. M. Danley, Co. G, 92d O.V.I., in his 26th year. Corporal Danley was one of those noble young men who rallied at their country’s call to go forth in defense of that liberty which his forefathers fought to achieve. He was one of those who left his home at a sacrifice of all his interests, leaving his farm, and all his business affairs, his wife and children, his aged mother, and all associates, to do his duty as a man and a patriot. How well he performed it, let the following from his Captain tell: “Though he died of disease and but little exposed to the dangers of the battle field, he was none the less a true patriot. He did his whole duty, while a soldier, faithfully and without complaining, and was the idol of his company.” He died calmly, only expressing a wish that his family might be with him in the last scene and that his friends at home might know that he “died at post, a faithful soldier of the Union.”

Grimes, what message he wished to send home, he replied, “Tell them I not only die as a soldier of my country, but a soldier of the Lord Jesus Christ,” then passed away with a smile. Surely “blessed are the dead that died in the Lord.” He leaves a large circle of friends and relations to mourn his loss. May God comfort them and bring them to join the loved ones in His everlasting kingdom.

Died: At the residence of his mother, in Barlow township, April 24, 1863, David Harvey, aged 23 years and 5 months. The deceased, feeling that he was needed as one to share the strife of the present rebellion, left all the comforts of a happy home and the association of a wide circle of friends and enlisted in Co. “D,” 77th O.V.I., at its organization. He went through the memorable battle of Shiloh unharmed, while friends fell fat around him, among the number their Orderly. After the battle, he was promoted to the vacancy, which he filled with credit to himself, his officers and the company. Had he been able to remain in the Regiment a few months longer, he would have received a commission, but during the summer the strong hand of disease laid hold of him. He was ambitious and wished to see this struggle brought to a successful issue, and not until he found that he could no longer be of any service to his country did he apply for a discharge, which was granted to him. He arrived at home unable to walk and lingered for twelve weeks, during which he was kindly nursed by a good mother and sisters, besides being under the best of medical aid, but they could not stay the hand of death. It was the will of God that he should die. It is as sad for us, who are far away, as it is heart rending to those at home, to have one taken away having such bright prospects, one who was honest, kind, cheerful and appeared as a brother, and to...[remaining lines illegible].

Seldom have we been called to notice the death of one that cast so much gloom on all around. The family circle has been broken. The Baptist church has parted with a worthy member, the Sabbath School with a faithful teacher and society with one of its brightest ornaments. But we sorry not without hope. She left the cheering evidence that our loss was her infinite gain. [Memorial poem follows.]

Died: May 18, 1863, at the residence of his brother, in Lake Co., Illinois, James L. Gage, Esq., aged 63 years. Mr. Gage was a lawyer of fair attainments and of good capacity. His professional life was mainly spent in McConnelsville, Morgan Co., Ohio, where he resided some fifteen or twenty years, visiting the Courts in the surrounding counties. When he had accumulated in his calling some means above providing an eligible and comfortable residence, he withdrew from the bar and engaged in the iron foundry business which he prosecuted with good success for several years at McConnelsville, and afterwards at St. Louis. But during one of those business revulsions that pas over the country and especially cities of rapid growth in the West, he became seriously embarrassed and finally failed in business. He remained in St. Louis some years and then removed to Columbus, Ohio, where he spent the last few years of his life in the Capital of the State to which he was so...[illegible].

Though much esteemed in the community where she had long lived, yet it is in the circle of her own immediate family and kindred that Mrs. Hart will be most mourned and missed. In feeble health for many years, she was only infrequently away from her home. To her children and friends, she was devotedly attached and for their welfare, temporal and spiritual, her efforts and prayers were unceasingly directed. Her sickness was long and painful, yet she bore all with entire submission. Of a large family of eight children, six were present with her during her illness, the other two being absent in the Army. She was a daughter of the late David Wilson, of Waterford, one of the earliest settlers of the State. Her Christian life dates back many years, she having united when quite young with the Presbyterian Church in Waterford. For the last 23 years, she was a member of the Congregational church in H., being one of the original founders. She has left to her friends the legacy of a consistent Christian character, and Heaven may take to itself new charms from the assurance that, if faithful like her, they shall then be reunited forever.

Died: “Death of Doctor Hildreth” - [Note: This is a very long obituary, only part of which is transcribed here.] Dr. Samuel Prescott Hildreth, so widely known as one of the leading and most esteemed citizens of Marietta, died last Friday night, about 11 o’clock - July 24, 1863 - in his 80th year. He had been in usual good health, a well-preserved and happy old gentleman, until Sunday, the 5th [of Jul]. On that morning he went to church, of which he was a regular attendant, but at the evening service he was too unwell to attend. He gradually sank away, his mind but little clouded, if any, until he was gathered to his fathers in the fullness of his years, only about two months less than four score. His funeral was on Sunday, [Jul] 26th, the services being in the Congregational church, of which he was a member, conducted by Rev. Mr. Wakefield, of Harmar, and President Andrews, of Marietta College. Dr. Hildreth was born in Methuen, Mass., Sept. 30, 1783, about a mile north of the present manufacturing city of Lawrence, on the Merrimac River. His family was one of some note in Massachusetts. He was descended, in the sixth generation, from Richard Hildreth, who emigrated from England over two centuries ago. Abel F. Hildreth, distinguished for many years as Principal of “Pinkerton Academy” at Derry, N.H., was his kinsman, and Richard Hildreth, the Historian, is his distant relative. His boyhood was passed in active work on his father’s farm where he acquired the habit of industry and toughened his physical powers for a long, vigorous and useful life. From a “Social Library” in the town, he formed the taste for reading and continued a great reader until his last illness. After the common school, he prepared for College at “Phillips Andover Academy,” one of the best in New England. Without completing a collegiate course, he studied medicine with Dr. Thos. Kittredge, at Andover’s “North Parish.” In May 1805, when less than 22 years of age, Dr. Hildreth began the practice of medicine in Hampstead, Rockingham Co., N.H., a small inland town. He there boarded with John True, Esq., whose brother, Dr. Jabez True, was then living in Marietta, having located here early in the summer of 1788, the first season of the settlement. From him, he learned of a “good opening for a young man” in Marietta. After sixteen months of practice in New Hampshire, he started, on horseback. Sept. 9, 1806 - being 23 years old that month - and arrived at Marietta Oct. 4th following. This place then contained about 600 inhabitants. He remained here about nine weeks, when on invitation of the leading citizens of Belpre, twelve miles below, to become their physician, he went to that place, Dec. 10, 1806. That night, never more to return to it, Blennerhasset left his “fairy island.” While in Belpre, August 1807, he married Miss Rhoda Cook. She was a native of New Bedford, Mass., and came to Ohio in 1804, her mother having purchased a farm in Belpre, nearly opposite the mouth of the Little Kanawha. For fifty-six years, they trod the path of life together, even-tempered years to them and reaping the reward of industry and prudence, a competence, the love of all, a family of children grown up to usefulness in life, a happy old age. Mrs. Hildreth survives, well-nigh unto four-score, “young for her years.” In March 1808, after a practice of fifteen months in Belpre, Dr. Hildreth returned to Marietta and ever after resided here. [This obituary continues for numerous paragraphs about Dr. Hildreth’s professional distinctions, his writings about the history and geology of Washington County, etc. Please consult microfilm reel, #39487, the issue of July 31, 1863.]

Died: At his residence above Harmar, on Sunday, Aug. 2, 1863, Isaac N. Bishop, aged 63 years, a well known and highly esteemed citizen.

Died: “Death of Jacob Cram” - Our community was surprised last Saturday morning by the intelligence that our townsman, Jacob Cram, was dead. When the call was made for the militia of this district to assemble at t his place, to repel the Morgan invasion, Mr. Cram felt it his duty to respond. Although the condition of his health was such as to render it hazardous for him to leave home, he went, on the morning of July 16th, with a company of scouts organized the day before, at the head of which he was placed. On the 17th, they reached Buffington Island and on the 18th they were fully deployed as scouts and obtained important information of the advance of Morgan. During Saturday night, the force at the ford were ordered to fall back to Ravenswood, by Gen. Scammon, which was done, but Mr. Cram refused to leave with the rest of his command and consequently fell into the hands of Morgan’s forces on Sunday morning. They took his horse and revolver, then paroled him. Where he was during the battle is not known. On Monday he was in the vicinity of Portland, at the head of Buffington, where he was arrested by a Sergeant and two men of the 8th Michigan cavalry under the pretense of being one of Morgan’s men. Although informed by persons who knew him that he was a Union an, they persisted in attempting to take him to the headquarters of the regiment. He probably tried to make his escape, and in doing so he is understood to have inflicted some injury upon the Sergeant, who immediately drew his revolver and shot him, and left him on the ground. After taking his boots, his money, and part of his clothes, he was buried near the spot where he fell, by whom is not known. Nothing was known here of his fate until Thursday of last week when his brother, J.A. Cram, and B.T. Nye went in search of him. His remains were brought to this place on Sunday and interred in the Mound Cemetery. The deep sympathy of this community was manifested by a large attendance at his funeral. Mr. Cram was born in Marietta, in August, 1820, and was consequently about 43 years of age. He was well known in the Muskingum Valley, where he had many friends. He leaves a widow and three children. Of the 20,000 men called together at this place to repel the Morgan invasion, he is the only one who did not return again to his own home, and he has fallen at the hands of a man calling himself a Union soldier.

Died: In Harmar, Sept. 5, 1863, Peter R. Putnam, Esq., and great grandson of Maj. Gen. Israel Putnam, in his 20th year. For the first time in a period of nearly thirty years, death has visited this branch of the family and taken from it one whose chances of life seemed far better than that of many others. How strange to us are the movings of Providence, and how are we again reminded, “Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh.” Mr. Putnam, a member of the Marietta Battery, worn out by the excitement and exposure incident to the Buffington Expedition, during the late Morgan raid, gradually sank in a fever which baffling the skill of physicians and the tender nursings of home has added another victim to the slain by this unholy rebellion. A dutiful son, a kind brother, and affectionate husband and father taken from us in the prime of life and in the vigor of manhood. How can we still our throbbing hearts, but by that grace which will enable us to sincerely say, “Not our will, but thine be done.” [Note: The Ohio Archaeological Council’s website has an interesting explanation of the Battle of Buffington Island, viz. http://www.ohioarchaeology.org/joomla/index.php, which can be accessed using their site search option.]

We lament a departed loved one. Yes, death has entered our school and chosen one of the fairest members. Our golden chain of friendship is perfect no longer. A bright link has been detached and transferred to the Maker above. May it attract each of us to that happy place, and though we all shall meet on earth no more, may we assemble a united school in heaven. We, her school mates, join together in ___ her sacred memory and in testifying that while with us, Mary was a friend ever true and faithful. We all esteemed her for her affection and kindness, and respected her for her amiable qualities of heart and mind. The recollection of her ladylike deportment and untiring industry is not lost to us and we shall ever strive to imitate the noble example she has left us. [Memorial poem follows.]

Died: At his residence in Belpre, Nov. 11, 1863, Deacon Francis Stone, a well known and highly esteemed citizen of Washington County, aged 55 years. Obituary on Nov 27, 1863 - Died of paralysis, Nov. 11, 1863, at his residence in Belpre, Ohio, Deacon Francis Stone, aged 55 years. In the sudden and unexpected departure of this well known citizen, our church and community have sustained a serious loss. He was stricken down on Monday evening, at dusk, while engaged in the active duties of life and in apparently good health, and lingered until near eleven o’clock Wednesday night, when the released spirit went from the labors and cares of earth to the rest and rewards of heaven. The departed possessed many worthy traits of character. He was a sympathizer with human suffering in all its forms. He was deeply impressed with the injustice of that system of oppression which has culminated in our present sanguinary struggle, and was a zealous advocate for the freedom of the slave, freely contributing his time and money for this purpose. He deemed it his duty to vote the anti-slavery ticket when such views were far less popular than at present. His faith in the final triumph of truth and right was unwavering and for him to decide in favor of the justice of a principle was to become an advocate of it, whatever it might cost. Mr. Stone possessed a mind of more than ordinary activity and was a diligent inquirer after truth, but his most prominent mental characteristic was his power to decide promptly and the tenacity with which to...[last lines illegible].

Friday, Dec 4, 1863

Died: Marietta is now mourning the death of two of her most promising young men, Capt. Wm. Beale Whittlesey and Lieut. George B. Turner, 92d O.V.I., who fell at the Battle of Mission Ridge, Nov. 25, 1863 - young men raised here, educated here, and who were ever known as “good boys” - young men in whom centered the high hopes of their parents, who are all living, of friends and associates, and of the people. Thanksgiving morning, a dispatch came that our forces at Chattanooga had won a signal victory over Bragg’s rebel army and the people rejoiced, yet how did the hearts of those who had friends there beat rapidly between hope and fear! Alas! The sorrow came very shortly, in a dispatch from Dr. Cotton, that Capt. Wittlesey was killed, Lieut. Turner severely wounded [see 22 Jan 1864 for George Turner’s obituary], and Lieut. Col. Douglas Putnam, Jr., wounded in the foot Saturday evening. The dispatch was that Lieut. Turner was “comfortable”; Tuesday morning, “worse” and that evening, “dead.” Capt, Whittlesey was the son of Hon Wm. A. Whittlesey and was born in Marietta, Oct. 2, 1841, consequently he had just passed the age of 22. He graduated at Marietta College, in the Class of 1861. In the summer of 1862, he joined the 92d Regiment, then not 21 years of age and as 2d Lieutenant, with very much activity and energy, raised a large portion of Company F, [under] Capt. Wm. Thorniley. George B. Turner, son of S.R. Turner, was born Nov. 13, 1840, and at his death was eighteen days over 23 years of age. He, too, graduated at Marietta College, with the highest honors, in the Class of 1862. Soon after graduating, he joined the same company with Whittlesey as Orderly Sergeant. They left Marietta with their regiment, Oct. 7, 1862, never more to return. Both became excellent soldiers, both won the esteem of their companions in arms, of their superior officers and both were deservedly promoted - Whittlesey, on the resignation of Capt. Thorniley to the command of the company and Turner to Lieutenant and Adjutant to the Regiment. In these capacities, they fought, won distinction, and were safe through the Battles of Chicamauga. The official report of Lt. Col. Putnam, who took command after Colonel Fearing was wounded, commended Capt. Whittlesey as “especially deserving of notice for bravery and coolness and for the manner in which his company was managed” and further: “I feel under obligations to Adjutant Geo. B.

In the two years following she taught school in Marietta and here she embraced religion, and united with the Congregational Church in which she remained until her death - possessing a meek and Christian spirit, always contented and happy, especially in the last year or two of her life in which she endeavored to make a full consecration of herself to God. She died without a struggle, triumphant in the Lord. Many will remember the acts of kindness received from her. She leaves many friends to mourn her loss.

Died: At Chattanooga, Dec. 1st, of a wound received at the Battle of Mission Ridge, Adjutant Geo. B. Turner, 92d Regiment O.V.I., aged 28 years. The deceased was the eldest son of S.R. Turner, Esq., of Marietta, and a member of the Baptist Church in that city. Eight years ago this winter, when ninety-nine were baptized into the fellowship of the church in that place, he was the first of that number and from that time to his death his life has been the life of a Christian, always exemplary, steadfast, reliable and ready to work in the Master’s cause. In June 1862, he graduated at Marietta College with the first honors of his class and immediately enlisted as Orderly Sergeant in the 92d Regiment which was at that time forming at Camp Marietta. He entered upon his work, as the writer has reason to know, simply from a high sense of duty to God and his country. His excellent qualities soon made him a favorite with both officers and men. On the first opportunity for promotion in his regiment, he was made Adjutant, which position he filled with marked fidelity and ability, both as an office adjutant and also in the field. In this capacity, indeed, it was often ____ for him that he had not his superior in the Army. The books of the regiment as kept by him were wont to be referred to as models. On the field his coolness, bravery and officer-like conduct called forth the special commendation of his superior in his report of the part taken by the regiment in the bloody battle of Chickamauga. He had so won the confidence and admiration of General Torchin as to receive from him a proffer of a place on his staff. It was at that most memorable, perhaps of the battles of our war, Mission Ridge, that our brother fell, at the head of the regiment rallying his men, when, for an instant, they seemed to waver under the deadly fire, yet at the moment of final victory. The acting colonel had already fallen seriously wounded and there was not an officer left to the struggling band above the grade of captain. Just about the same time another Marietta youth, also a graduate of the same College in 1861, Capt. W.B. Whittlesey fell, shot through or near the heart, and instantly expired. Their bodies having been conveyed to their friends at Marietta were both buried the same day, Dec. __ [may be 29 Dec], with appropriate funeral services. At the special request of the stricken parents, the late pastor, Rev. L.G. Leonard, preached the funeral sermon of Bro. Turner, Text 1 Cor. XV:54, last clause. It was a solemn scene and a day much to be remembered by the citizens of Marietta. The great national victory was costly to them. Three from among their most promising young men - all graduates of their College- fell on that field. One of them, however, acting as Colonel, though severely wounded, is now doing well and will recover. Our young brother Turner possessed one of the most excellent and symmetrical characters. High conscientiousness, industry, faithfulness to every trust great or small, the habit of doing every thing in the best manner, firmness without obstinacy, a practical judgment, quick in its conclusions and seldom at fault, and above all and more than all, Christian faith and a Christian life adorned by consistency, meekness and good works. Such lives cut short we lament - the country mourns. But such lives laid upon the altars of our country are not lost. We sorrow with weeping friends, but out of this deep gloom we already behold the rising of the Star Promise, destined, we doubt not, to usher in a brighter and better day. Our land is being redeemed by the blood of her sons. And when the redemption is complete, let us hope that as a people we shall better understand the value of our Government and its institutions, and above all that we shall more reverently and practically acknowledge that “Righteousness exalteth a nation and sin is a reproach to any people.” Signed: L.G.L.

Friday, Feb 12, 1864

Died: “Death of Wyllys Hall” - Many of our readers will be surprised, as we were, to hear of the sudden death of Wyllys Hall, one of the oldest citizens and business men of Marietta. He died on this (Thursday) morning, at 2 o’clock, Feb. 11, 1864, after only about an hour’s illness, of spasmodic asthma, in his 74th year. He was about his labors, as usual, yesterday and retired for the night, with everything prepared to go to work at an early hour this morning, but his labor on earth was ended. Mr. Hall had been widely known as a business man of Marietta, for nearly half a century. He came from New London, Conn., in 1817. He was industrious; for a time merchandizing, again running a steamboat, then trading upon the river, and for many years carried on a bakery in which business he was engaged at the time of his death. He was a member of the first Council of Marietta, after its incorporation, in 1826. For many years, he was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The funeral will be in the Centenary M.E. Church, next Sunday, at 2 o’clock P.M. [See also Feb 19, 1864.]

Friday, Feb 19 1864

Died: “Obituary” - Wyllys Hall was born in Colchester, Conn., Aug. 29, 1790, moved to Marietta, Ohio, 1817, where he lived, labored, suffered and died. For fifty years he was a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Forty years of that time he was an efficient officer in the church. He superintended the first Sabbath School organized by the Methodists in Marietta. For some months past his natural strength failed quite rapidly, still he was able to attend to the regular routine of business until the last night of his life. He retired to rest as usual, but about midnight a call was made by the angle of death - the family was alarmed, yet hoped he would soon recover. Bro. Hall felt however that his time had come and said, “My work is done, I will soon be home.” And at two o’clock, Thursday morning, Feb. 11, 1864, he sweetly fell asleep in Jesus. On the following Sabbath, his remains were carried to the church where he had worshiped for about 23 years and a discourse was delivered by the writer of this notice, to one of the largest congregations ever convened on such an occasion in this place. His numerous relatives and friends then followed him to the grave where we laid him down to rest until the resurrection morn. [Memorial poem follows.] Signed: C.D.

Died: At his home, in Cairo, Ill., Monday morning, Feb. 15, 1864, after a brief illness, Robert McCabe Jennings, in his 36th year, son of Julia Jennings, of Marietta. From the Cairo, Ill. “Daily Democrat” - Mr. Jennings was born in Marietta, Ohio, where his parents and many of his relatives still reside. He located in this cit some seven or eight years ago and appeared before the public in many places as a business man. No one had a more general acquaintance with the public than he. And, thus known, we can pay him a tribute, which but very few men in a lifetime earn - he gave no man just cause for enmity. In his position as deputy Postmaster, during the past five years, a situation very difficult to satisfactorily fill, he won the ardent friendship and kind consideration of every one, male or female, young or old, without an exception worthy of a moment’s thought. Always genial, active and urbane, no one came in contact with him either in a business or social way without feeling his or her heart warm toward him as toward a brother. He was a stranger to other than noble impulses and possessed a heart almost too pliable to the touch of sympathy for his own good. No one claiming to be destitute ever called upon “Bob” and turned away empty handed and more than this, no deserving enterprise failed to find in him an earnest advocate and a liberal friend. He has passed away, however, leaving only o all that was good and loveable, his cold inanimate clay. Over that, his hosts of friends, his stricken wife and Masonic brethren have dropped many, very many bitter tears, feeling almost that their very hearts be encased in the coffin beside him. Poor “Bob” - we all bid you a long and eternal FAREWELL.

Died: In Belpre, Feb. 17, Wm. W. Loring, in the 25th year of his age. “The dust returns to the dust as it was. The spirit to God who gave it.” William has lain aside his earthly vesture for one that is spiritual and heavenly. He has been quickened into a better and brighter life. God’s angel broke the chain that bound him to mortality and delivered him from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the immortal ones. We would not call him back if we could, for he desired to go , and we know that he is free and walks upon the shining shores of that beautiful land where disease and death are unknown. William was a good young man. Small indeed is the number of men in any community who have as few faults and so many virtues as he. His social, frank and friendly disposition won him many friends. His energy, enterprise and business talent commanded respect; and the constant kindness and consideration with which he trusted every one, especially his mother, spoke volumes for the nobleness of his nature and Christian character. His funeral was held on Sunday, the 21st, in the Universalist Church in Belpre, where an unusually large number of people assembled to show their respect for the departed and sympathy for the afflicted, and where a sermon was preached by the writer.

Died: In Dunham, Feb. 17, of typhoid fever, Allin O. Ellinwood, aged 17 years. Mr. Ellinwood was a youth of promise, a favorite among his mates, at school a leader. He bid fair to be a scholar of the first class. His future seemed bright to his friends, but alas how transient all his high hopes and those of his friends. After an illness of eight or nine weeks, when his time had come, he was aware of it, and disposed of his books and keepsakes, calmly talked of his departure to meet his mother, who had gone about a year before, and his younger brother, who had gone a few weeks before. Such is life. Signed: J.N.

Died: In Dunham, Feb. 19, at the residence of his brother, of typhoid fever, Alphonso Smith, aged 24 years.

His loss is mourned by a large circle of relations and friends. Signed: J.N.

Died: In Dunham, Feb 21, of typhoid fever, Phebe A. Martin, aged 24 years.

The above [Delano, Ellinwood, Smith & Martin] were all within a mile and a half of each other. A large number are still very sick. The disease seems to spread like the smallpox or measles. Signed: J.N.

She was for many years a member of the Methodist Church and a true Christian, an ornament to her Church and the society in which she moved. Signed: J.N.

Died: Dr. Pardon Cooke, Jr., youngest son of Rev. Pardon and Mary Cooke, was born at Parkersburg, Va., on the 10th days of January 1823. In September, 1832, the family moved to Ohio, where the deceased has ever since resided. In March 1852, he graduated as a Physician at the Starling Medical College, Columbus, Ohio. In November, 1852, he was united in marriage with Mary Ellen, eldest daughter of Hon William E. Hunter of Woodsfield, O., soon after which he settled in Marietta and entered upon the practice of his profession. In 1854, his only son was born. On the breaking out of the Rebellion, in 1861, he deemed it proper that the family to which he belonged should have at least one representative in the Union Army, and accordingly applied for and obtained a Commission as Assistant Surgeon in the Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in October, 1861. Shortly after, he was assigned to duty in Gen. Cox’s Division of the Army, in the K___wha Valley in West Virginia, where he remained until February, 1862, when he returned to Ohio and entered upon duty with the 77th Ohio Regiment. He remained with the 77th ever afterward until his death, and was with it at the Battle of Shiloh, or Pittsburg Landing, and during the march of our army from that point to Corinth, Mississippi and Memphis. In August, 1862, the regiment was removed from Memphis and stationed at Alton, Illinois, in charge of several thousand rebel prisoners. In July, 1863, he was ordered into Arkansas and formed a part of the forces under command of Maj. Gen. Steele, sent out from Helena for the purpose of capturing Little Rock. On the march of this expedition through the swampy lands of Arkansas, the deceased was first attacked with chill and fever. Further on in the march, the fever assumed a serious type and he at once tendered his resignation with a view of returning home. But it was now too late. On Sunday, the 30th of August, he was placed upon a steamer at Duvall’s Bluff to be returned to Ohio. At 5 o’clock the next morning, while on the way down White River, his disease terminated fatally. His body was then returned to Duvall’s Bluff where, on the same day, the 31st of August, it was interred by the regiment. Remaining thus interred for 5 and a half months, the remains are now brought home for deposit in their final resting place.

Long a professed friend of Jesus, she illustrated her religion by a consistent life.

Died: In Cincinnati, April 3, 1864, Florence Oliva, only child of John M. and Oliva Perkins Bennett, aged 2 years, 10 months, and 1 day.

Died: At his residence, in Harmar, March 29, 1864, of consumption, Rollin C. Vincent, formerly of Vincent, Ohio, aged 29 years. Many hearts will be saddened to learn that this quiet, unassuming gentleman is no more. He was a true man. His life was beautiful. Always guided by a high sense of justice and moved by noble impulses, he established a character above reproach; and he drew around him a circle of friends who will mourn his loss and cherish his memory while they live. [Memorial poem follows.]

Died: In Ironton, April 1, 1864, James M. Amlin, aged 61. Mr. Amlin was a former well known citizen of Washington county. He united with the Presbyterian Church I n the year 1826. The year following he was elected a Ruling Elder and for twenty-three years of his life filled that office in the different churches of which he was a member. As a husband, he was kind and affectionate; as a father, indulgent and ever careful for the welfare and religious training of his children. He had the happiness of seeing all his children, who arrived at maturity, consecrate themselves to God, and united with His visible church. In his family and in his daily walk with the world, he lived the religion which he professed. In him, the poor always found a ready help. The needy he never turned away empty. An unwavering faith in his Heavenly Father characterized every act of his life; and when called upon to pass through afflictions (and few men have been more afflicted), he exhibited the faith exemplified by Job: “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.” Until within a few years past, he was so situated that his house was the preacher’s home and its hospitalities were as cordially extended to other denominations as to the society of which he was a member. His liberality to other denominations led them to feel that he was a “companion to all those that feared the Lord.” His thorough knowledge of the Word of God eminently qualified him as a Sabbath School Teacher and as such from his early youth he has ever been engaged. Adhering strictly to principle, he never faltered in the face of all opposition to perform what he considered his duty. The House of God was his delight and his seat was never vacant when in health. Firm in the belief that God never made a tyrant or a slave, he ever sympathized with the oppressed, listened to the voice of woe and passed not by on the other side. Strictly temperate in his habits, he labored diligently and uncompromisingly in the cause of temperance. As a citizen and neighbor, those who knew him best prized him most. His summons, though unexpected to his friends, found him “with his lamp trimmed and burning, waiting for the coming of the Lord.” Though deprived of the power of speech during the latter part of his illness, his friends feel that his “life is hid with Christ.” His prayers and counsels will be missed, but we feel that another link has been added to that chain which binds us to Heaven.

Warren suffered much and long before deliverance came, being unable to sit in a chair for 105 days. Yet he bore his sufferings with patience, and looked forward with pleasure to the time when he hoped to meet again his mother and brother gone before, in a better land. He was a young man who had an unblemished character and many friends. His funeral was held on the 8th of April, at the residence of his father, when a sermon was preached to relatives and friends by the writer. Signed: J.W. McMaster.

Died: At Marietta, Ohio, on Saturday, P.M., April 9, 1864, Elizabeth Clark Ward, eldest daughter of Wm. S. and Catherine Ward. The death of this estimable young woman was almost as great a surprise to her own family as to the community. Although she had been sick of typhoid fever for several weeks, at times apparently in danger, yet the last week had developed favorable symptoms and those who so long and faithfully had watched her were cheered by an almost an assurance of her recovery. But on Saturday morning it was evident she was sinking and at 4 P.M. she quietly ceased to live. It is always a difficult task to write justly of one like her. Those who knew her best and loved her most would feel any estimate too formal and cold, while it would not be easy to describe her beauty of nature to those who did not know her. Under the veil of an unusually reserved manner for one so young were concealed the elements of the admirable womanhood into which she was just blossoming. In twenty days she would have been eighteen years old. [Rest of obituary illegible.]

He was offered an important and responsible position in the regiment,, but chose to serve as a soldier in the ranks and well and faithfully did he perform his part in the battles of Hoover’s Gap, Chickamauga, and Mission Ridge. Over-exertion in the latter brought on the disease of which he died. When he found there were no hopes of his recovery, he applied for and received the first furlough he had asked since he went out and had the satisfaction of dying at home and among his friends.

Died: In Troy Township, Athens county, O., May 11, 1864, Lydia Brewster. The deceased was born October 26, 1793, in Franklin, Delaware county, New York. Her maiden name was Lydia Waterman.

Memorial Tribute: From Company A, 36th Ohio Veterans, for Corporal Lyman D. Perrin who was killed near Alderson’s Ferry, Greenbriar County, West Virginia, May 18, 1864.

Died: It pains us to announce the death of Charles Beman Gates, First Lieutenant of company A, 148th Regiment, O.N.G. [Ohio National Guard]. He died after a short illness at Harper’s Ferry, Tuesday of this week - May 31st - only eight days after leaving Marietta, in his usual health. His age was about 20. Lieut. Gates was the only son of Beman Gates, Esq., of this city. He was a young man of a good deal of promise, of fine talents, a pleasant and agreeable associate - and beloved by all who knew him. He was a member of the Junior Class in Marietta College. Mr. and Mrs. Gates left for Harper’s Ferry Tuesday evening, but too late to see their cherished son alive. They are expected to arrive home with his remains this (Thursday) night. And on Jun 10, 1864: “Death of Lieut. Gates” - Only son of Beman Gates, Esq., of this city, he was born October 30, 1844. He died at Harper’s Ferry, May 31, 1864, in the 20th year of his age. Of the many noble young men from this city who have laid down their lives for their country in the present sanguinary struggle, none have died lamented by a wider circle of friends. While yet a lad, he had exhibited in a high degree those qualities which give promise of noble manhood. He was known as a dutiful and affectionate son and brother, unusually free from those irregularities of conduct to which youth brought up in towns are so prone. Having pursued his elementary studies in the public schools of this place, he entered Marietta College at the early age of sixteen. At the time of his death, he was a member of the Junior Class. While in college he gave high promise of excellence as a speaker. During his last year of study, he exhibited a marked mental growth and a rapid development of manly qualities. Of a stalwart manly form, a pleasing address, a frank open countenance, and a generous nature, he was a favorite among his fellow students; and he may be truly said to have won the esteem and love of all with whom he came in contact. Those who knew him best were aware that he was a young man of Christian principle and habitually influenced by strong convictions of duty. Paramount to all other duties, in the present crisis, seemed to him the duty to his country. A brief term of service in a volunteer company during the Morgan raid in 1863 had given him a slight experience as a soldier, enough to prove his soldierly qualities. He was afterwards promoted to the office of First Lieutenant under Capt. Knowles, though himself one of the youngest members of the company. When at the call of Gov. Brough his regiment (the 148th O.N.G.), entered the service of the United States fora hundred days, he went forth with cheerfulness and alacrity. While yet scarcely out of sight of his home, he narrowly escaped from a sad railroad disaster by which two of his fellow students and one member of his company lost their lives. The injury which he then received, though deemed slightly, may possibly have aggravated his final disease. Upon reaching Harper’s Ferry, desiring to set before his company an example of faithfulness, and disdaining to take as an officer any indulgence denied to the men, he submitted to an amount of exposure and fatigue beyond what he was able to bear. He was prostrated by an attack of pneumonia, which soon assumed a serious form. When told that his death was near, he received the news with cheerful resignation, declaring that he was ready to go and that he was not sorry for having obeyed the call of his country. With adieus and kind words for the loved ones whom he could no longer hope to see, he died, expressing his firm hope of salvation through the merits of the Redeemer. His remains were interred in this city June 3, 1864.

Friday, Jun 24, 1864

Died: Joseph Kelley, one of our oldest and most highly respected citizens, died on Saturday night, June 18, 1864, in the 80th year of his age. Mr. Kelley was born in Plainfield, Mass., and when four years of age came with his father “to the West,” remaining at Pittsburg through the winter of 1788-9. In the spring (1789), James Kelly, the father, removed to Marietta and in December 1789, Mrs. Kelly gave birth to the first male child born in the colony, St. Clair Kelly, a brother of the subject of this notice, and who died about forty years ago. In 1790, the family removed to Belville, Va., about thirty miles below Marietta. April 7, 1791, early in the morning, Indians attacked and killed James Kelly, the father, who was in a field with a hoe, and defended himself vigorously. He was shot down and scalped. Joseph was with him and was taken prisoner by the Indians. He was then in his 7th year. He was taken off by the Shawnees to their towns in northwestern Ohio where he was adopted by an old warrior named Mishalena, who lived at a village on the St. Mary’s river. He remained with the Indians until the winter of 1795-6, nearly five years, when he was released. He had lost the English language and left his Indian parents with regret. He arrived in Marietta in March 1796, and was restored to his mother. Mr. Kelly had lived in Marietta during this long period until last week, universally respected. He was always a temperate and very moral man, industrious and energetic. His early education was deficient and he had no ambition for office, but he lived a useful citizen. He became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, about thirty-seven years since, and lived in that faith until death. [Note: Surname is spelled both Kelley and Kelly in this obituary.]

On the 22nd of last March, Lethe’s birthday when we saw her surrounded by a happy, joyous circle, and she was made a wife and bride by the holy rite of wedlock, little did we think we should be so soon called upon to record the fact that she had sundered all earthly ties - left all earthly circles and gone where they neither marry or are given in marriage, but are as the Angels in heaven. But thus suddenly has she departed. Our friend, gentle, sincere and lovely, treads the paths of this world no more. The day after her marriage, she left the home of her father and went with her husband to the West, where they hoped to make them a new and happy home for years, but disease came, hoped were blighted and in one brief week the death Angel finished his work. She was a member of the Universalist Church in Belpre, a thoughtful, prudent and Christian woman. Her memory is blessed. Signed: J.W.M.

Died: June 24, 1864, at Pulaski, Tenn., of flux, Lieut. Richard D. Mason, son of Adolphus and Betsey Mason, in the 27th year of his age. The deceased was born in the village of Lowell, Washington county, Ohio, where he resided until the year 1862. In October of that year, he enlisted under Capt. John Williamson, as 2nd Lieut., Co. B, 9th O.V.C. His regiment was at the siege of Knoxville and in many other sharply contested engagements and long and weary marches. In the death of the subject of this notice, there is a sadness which casts a gloom over his many friends and associates. Like many of our noble young men, impelled by a sense of duty to his country’s call, he buckled on his armor and marched forth to fight the battles of his country’s liberty. Alas! but to die upon the altar of our country - ‘tis but gain. For many years he has been the idol and pride of a large number of associates who had been drawn around him by the kind and noble spirit which he possessed. But it is for us to write his praise, for it is engraved in letters of golf upon the tables of stone of the hearts of all that knew him. After exposures and fatigue, endured through long marches, he obtained a leave of absence for twenty days, and sought the home of his childhood, where he received the blessings and kind greetings of his grateful people. As an evidence of loyalty and devotion, he took to himself a wife, but only to remain for a brief period when he must turn from his birth place to the seat of his official duties in the army. He was taken ill. Suffering for a short time he calmly bowed to the will of the Universal Master, and when he arrived on the brink of the river of death, he met the terror nobly and cheerfully. And now, as the sad tidings of his death wafts in us, a void is felt which cannot be relieved. Weep not for him, friends, his name is now written in water but on the pages of glory in the history of our country’s redemption. Mourn not for the lost - the blighting hand of time may sever some of the delicate threads, but it cannot divide the silken cords which bind our country to her martyrs. [See issue of May 27, 1864 for marriage on May 12, 1864, of Lieut. Mason and Miss L.M. Shepard.]

Died: In this city, Sunday, July 17, 1864, Lucy A. Medlicott, youngest daughter of Graydon and Hester Medlicott, aged 19. [Memorial thoughts and poem follow.]

Died: At Sweet Sulphur Springs, Va., June 24, 1864, Corporal C.J. Pewthers, Co. F, 2nd Va. Cavalry, aged 34. His life was another sacrifice laid on the altar of his country. In his death, Liberty has lost one of its most faithful defenders, his regiment a brave and daring soldier, his family a kind son and affectionate husband, and the community a good citizen. Modest and retiring, he sought not worldly honors, but strove like a true man to perform every duty. He served his country long and faithfully, and when called upon to lay down his life for the freedom he had striven so earnestly to perpetuate, he yielded it without a murmur, rejoicing that he could die in such a noble cause. Though his friends are drinking the bitter cup of sorrow to the very dregs, they mourn not as those without hope. They know that their loss is his gain, that the patriot soldier died as the Christian dies. Gladly did he obey the summons of his divine Master. He was ready to enter into that “perfect rest,” prepared for the children of God. Though bowed down with sorrow, we look forward in bright anticipation of the resurrection morn when there will be no more parting with loved friends, no tears, no sorrow, but when all will be once more united, an unbroken ______ in Heaven.

Died: Corporal William Henry Cutter, Co. B, 77th Regiment, O.V.I., killed in the battle of Jenkins’ Ferry on the Saline River, Arkansas, April 30, 1864. Corporal Cutter was the son of Lewis J. Cutter, Esq., of Union Township, and was born October 26, 1837. He enlisted in the 77th Ohio, in December 1861, and was with the regiment in all its engagements previous to his death. He was in the battles of Shiloh, Fallen Timbers, Bayou Meteor, Little Rock and in all of the other skirmishes and engagements that the regiment took part in. In the expedition to Holly Springs, Miss., in June 1862, he, accompanied by one of his comrades, was sent in advance to ascertain whether any rebel soldiers were in the town. The streets were lined on both sides by rebel citizens. As the two entered,, the rebels said to them, “You are very weak this morning,” to which Corporal Cutter replied,, “We are stronger in the rear,” of which the rebels were soon convinced. In December 1863, while at Little Rock, Ark, he re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer. On the 3rd of March, 1864, the regiment left Camp Dennison for Little Rock. On the 23rd of the same month, it left Little Rock in Gen. Steele’s expedition to Red River. The expedition reached Camden, Ark., April 15th, but on account of Gen. Banks’ defeat on the Red River, Gen. Steele had to fall back to Little Rock. The rebels pressed him closely on his retreat, and he reached the Saline River on the evening of April 29. He was attacked by the rebels early the next morning, while laying his pontoons across the river, the engagement lasting about seven hours. It was in this battle that Corporal Cutter fell while nobly defending the Flag of his county. In his death, Liberty has lost one of its most faithful defenders, his regiment a brave and daring soldier, his parents a kind son and his brothers and sisters a kind brother. The only object he had in view when he first enlisted and when he re-enlisted as a Veteran was faithfully to serve his country while God gave him health and life to do so.

Died: In Canandaigua, N.Y., Aug. 11, 1864, Mrs. Mary Frances Mugridge, wife of D.W. Mugridge, of Chicago, and daughter of the late J.O. Cram, of this city. Few have passed away from among us, the circumstances of whose death have aroused more wide-felt sympathy in the community than the deceased. The playmates of her childhood, her schoolmates, her chosen friends of later years, are with us, and while all know her, many esteemed and loved her. It is not a year since she left us, a bride to reside in a northern city. As we thought of her in her new home, it was of one in full health and vigor, with the promise of years of life. Suddenly we were startled by the intelligence that a severe and perhaps fatal illness had seized her, that mother and sisters had been summoned to her bedside; then that they had reached her, but that the physician, fearful of the result of excitement, could not permit them to see her, and that thus excluded, they were to await the crisis of her disease, but as soon as all hope of recovery was abandoned, they should at once be admitted to her room and might remain with her to the last. Another telegram, hope is abandoned and her friends are watching her last moments. Another - Death has conquered and her remains are to be brought at once to be buried here. Soon after her arrival at Chicago, Mrs. Mugridge connected herself with the Church of Christ. A lady of that city, who had learned to love the newcomer, assured her friends that she was much impressed as she listened to the relation of her religious experience which [was] examined before her admission to the church. Her frankness, her earnestness, her evident realization of the solemnity of the occasion, the fact evident to all, that she was telling what indeed had been her heart...[remainder is illegible.]

Early in her painful illness, she was much in prayer and desired the prayers of all Christians. The Monday night before her death she was very happy and sang several hymns, as “Jesus, Lover of my Soul,” and “Give me Jesus.” She had no fear of death, her only regret being that she had not always lived a Christian. She urged her parents to meet her in Heaven and she hoped to die shouting. And when the messenger came, her wish was granted, for with a smile of more than earthly radiance, she exclaimed, “Glory, glory, glory be to God,” and shortly after saying, “My God, how long? For evermore, evermore, evermore.” She passed from earth, as we

trust. to learn more fully in Heaven the lesson of praise begun here.

Died: In Albion, Marshall Co., Iowa, Nov. ___, 1864, Phinehas C. Keyes, aged 65. Mr. Keyes will be remember by many of the older readers of the Register as he came to Marietta with his parents from New England, and resided here several years. Forty years ago, he settled in Windsor, Morgan Co. Here he remained till the present season when he purchased what he regarded as a beautiful home in town. He had but just taken possession of his new residence when, after a painful sickness of five weeks, he was called away. He was a man of strong and energetic character, unwavering in the support of what he believed to be right. Making a profession of religion in the Congregational Church of Marietta, and after his removal to Morgan Co., uniting with the small Presbyterian Church at Big Bottom, of which he was an officer, he was ever known as a consistent and decided Christian. Though never having but limited pecuniary means, he sought for his children the advantages of education that should fit them for useful positions in society. One of his daughters was, for several years, a Missionary Teacher among the Choctaw Indians. Three of them are now the wives of clergymen. His three sons all living in different states enlisted in the army. One of them was the late Capt. Edwin Keyes, of the 116th Ohio, whose memory will be precious to many as that of a patriot and Christian. Though Mr. K. had so recently found so desirable a home for himself and though he felt that he had much to live for, yet, when the summons came, he felt that he had more to die for. The better land shone so winningly that he longed to depart. Not a cloud obscured his spirit’s vision. To all who saw him, his language was, “I’m almost home.”

Died: In Marietta Township, on Wednesday, January 25, 1865, Johnson Bean, Deacon of the Valley Church. His funeral was attended on Thursday, the 26th, by a large number of relatives and friends of the bereaved family. Mr. Bean was born in Lower Canada, on the__ day of August, 1818, but his parents removed while he was an infant, to Vermont, in which State he spent his youth and early manhood. The family then removed to Massachusetts and he was, for some years, Warden of the penitentiary at Boston. While there, his attention became especially engaged in the salvation of the Gospel, and he was made a happy subject of regenerating grace. At first he united with the Methodist denomination. But on a more careful study of God’s word, arriving at a clearer understanding of the teachings and practices of the Gospel, he joined the Baptist Church. By whom he was baptized, or into what Church he was first received on fellowship, is not known to the present writer. About thirteen years ago, he came to Washington county, Ohio, as contractor [sic] on the Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad. He, not long after, united with the Baptist Church of Marietta of which Rev. L.G. Leonard was then Pastor. He settled on a farm about six miles up the Ohio from Marietta where, at the time, there was no church and very few religious privileges and often was he heard expressing his solicitude for the religious interests of the community in which his lot was cast. He enlisted the members of the Marietta Church to form a Sabbath School in the neighborhood and that opened the way for the successful labors of Rev. J.S. Dawson, and a revival was enjoyed and a church organized. To that Church he removed his membership and became its principal member, giving it his care and time and means, and ready and solicitous, by every means in his power, to promote its interests and help the cause of Christ through its instrumentality. Not long since, when business in which he had engaged promised success and good profits, he spoke of the facilities which he hoped to possess of helping the cause and sustaining the Gospel in his neighborhood as a chief motive to his efforts. But he has gone at the age of forty-seven, in the vigor of manhood, in the midst of his usefulness and just when his prospects in life were brightening. He left a widow and three children - one of whom, a daughter, will doubtless follow him to the grave before this appears in print.. Another, a son, was some time since taken prisoner while in his country’s service and probably knows nothing of his loss. Mr. Bean will be missed exceedingly in every circle where he moved. He was active, energetic, practical, of sound judgment, kind-hearted, and deservedly esteemed by all who knew him. A breach is made in the Church which seems irreparable. God by his spirit alone can repair it. How mysterious are such providences. His disease was typhoid. He was delirious most of the time after he came to his bed. Once, in a lucid interval, he looked smilingly upward and said, “Home, Sweet Home!” But seeing his wife in tears, he fixed his eyes upon her and gave no further expression to the vision before him. But doubtless his mind was on his home in heaven. And to that heavenly home we are permitted to trust he has gone, to mingle with the blessed family there, in that presence where “there is fullness of joy forevermore,” and to enjoy “the rest which remaineth for the people of God.”

Died: In Marietta Township, on Monday, the 20th, Emma Bean, aged fifteen years and six months, daughter of Johnson Bean, the subject of the preceding obituary. So soon Emma follows her father!

She was converted at the age of 12 years and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which she lived a consistent member until the time of her death. She had been afflicted about two years with that formidable enemy to the human race, consumption, and during all this time she manifested a calm and steady reliance on her Saviour. During the latter part of her illness, the writer was permitted to visit her a few times and he always found her calmly waiting the coming of the messenger which was to call her from a world of suffering to a world of bliss. It is impossible to gaze upon one so young and lovely in the morning of her days, with prospects of life and all its enjoyments before her, suddenly cut down without feeling the truth of the expression, “Death loves a shining mark,” but when we see that youthful countenance radiant with heavenly light, as she gazes around upon one and another of her friends and with calm composure take them by the hand and bid them an affectionate farewell, we are constrained to say, “For her to die was gain.” [Memorial poem and personal remarks from T.C. Hatfield follow.]

He was a child of great promise, being possessed of unusual sweetness of disposition and an intelligence far beyond his years. He was the pride and joy of his grandparents, with whom he lived after his father’s death and who bestowed the tenderest care upon the little orphan. The sunshine is gone from their home forever, and the grief stricken mother can find comfort only in the thought that the dear Saviour, who took little children in his arms and blessed them, loved her darling little one and has taken him to Himself.

Died: Col. William West, born in Fairfax county, Virginia, February 26, 1796, died near Marietta, Ohio, May 10, 1866, aged 70 years. Col West settled on the banks of the Ohio, in Wood county, Virginia, in 1805, and removed to the farm where he died in Washington county, Ohio, in April, 1828. He served in the United States Army in the war with Great Britain, in 1813, and was in the service at Norfolk, Virginia when peace was made. He was elected Colonel of Virginia militia, commissioned by the Governor and served five years. He was one of the Commissioners of Washington county and held other responsible positions, and always discharged these public trusts with fidelity and satisfaction to the people. Col. West was a true patriot and did much to fill up the Union army during the late rebellion, having made effective war speeches at many places. He was a just and upright man, much esteemed by those who knew him best, and universally respected by the community in which he lived. He was a devoted member of the Masonic fraternity, and was buried with the beautiful rites of the order, by American Union Lodge No. 1, to which he belonged. His views of the future may be learned from the following, which he wrote a few weeks before his death, with a request that it be inscribed on his tombstone: “The idea of inspiration, revelation and special providences are all fallacious. The laws of nature are wise, just, impartial, beautiful, unchangeable, eternal and immutable. Matter changes its form, but cannot perish or become non-existent. These are my words - so may it be.” His death is lamented by the entire community, as well as by the Lodge, and his family, by whom he was so much beloved. Peace to his ____ [illegible word].

Died: In Chicago, Illinois, June 1st, at the residence of Major Shelton Sturges, Mrs. Frances Eudora Nye, aged 35 years. Mrs. Nye was born at Key West, Florida, May 6th, 1831. She came to Marietta about 18 years ago and was a pupil in the school of Rev. Mr. Tolford. In 1851, she married William S. Nye, Esq., who died nearly four years ago, deeply mourned by a large circle of friends and possessed of the esteem of all who knew him. At school and in the wider circle of friends which she entered after her marriage, she won the love of all and retained it with increasing affection till the last. She was a woman of fine intellect and unusual culture, gentle, unassuming, energetic and yet so delicate that no one felt that a rough breath should be permitted to blow upon her. From the shock occasioned by her husband’s death, she never recovered and from his loss she may be said perhaps to have pined herself away, into the grave. Her funeral was attended by a large circle of friends at St. Luke’s Church, in this city, last Sunday afternoon and she was interred in Oak Grove Cemetery, beside the remains of her husband, which had been removed from the Mound Cemetery on the day before her death. A handsome marble _____ [illegible], an obelisk, marks their resting place. [Memorial poem follows.]

Died: On the 24th day of May 1866, at New Castle, Morgan county, Ohio, Dr. M.L. St.John, of consumption, in his 35th year. The deceased, a son of Russel St.John, was born July 15, 1831, in Aurelius township, Washington county, Ohio. He possessed not more than the ordinary means of education except what he acquired by his own unaided exertions. In the spring of 1850, he entered the Western Liberal Institute, at Marietta, where he attended that and three or four subsequent terms. At about this time, he commenced the study of medicine under Dr. F. Regnier, of Harmar, which he continued at intervals until 1854, when - on becoming a member of the Presbyterian Church - he turned his attention from the study of medicine to that of theology. He attended two terms at Lane Seminary, the term beginning in the autumn of 1856 and again in 1857. He was married, June 1858, to Miss Sarah A. Gatwood, of Aurelius. In the spring of 1859, he attended medical lectures at Cincinnati under the auspices of the American Board of Foreign Missions, his purpose being at that time to go as a missionary to a foreign country, that a part of his duties at the mission might be in giving medical assistance when required. In September, 1859, he, with his wife, embarked at New York for the Gabon Mission, West Africa, where after a voyage of four months, they arrived in safety. After remaining at the mission about one year, his health having become much impaired, and there being at the mission a larger number of persons than was required, he returned to this country, expecting an appointment to South Africa, where he hoped to enjoy better health. But, on his arrival just at the opening of the war, the Board decided in consequence of the disturbed condition of the country not to send any missionaries at that time, and advised him to engage temporarily in some other vocation. He entered into the practice of medicine, in which profession he continued until the time of his death. He took a deep interest in religious matters, frequently filling the pulpit of the denomination to which he belonged and occasionally that of other denominations. He lived an upright Christian life and died lamented by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.

In 1862 [date is difficult to read], she became hopefully a subject of regenerating grace and joined the M.E. Church. Till her death, she continued a consistent, decided, active member. The influence of religion was manifest to all her character and conduct. She sustained, with an amiable Christian spirit, all her relations in life. As a daughter, a wife, a mother, she exemplified the affections of a kindly nature chastened and refined by the religion which she professed. As a friend, she was ardent and sincere, interesting herself with a heart of sympathy, and a ready word of encouragement and comfort, in whatever concerned her friends. Her quiet Christian influence and example was seen and felt through the community in which she lived; and she will be greatly missed in every relation she sustained. She suffered much during her last illness, yet retained her reason, had no fear of death, and expressed her readiness to depart and a full assurance of being soon with the Saviour she loved. When asked, just before she expired if she had any doubts, she replied, “Not a doubt,” and thus she passed away in full confidence of a blessed immortality.

Died: At the residence of Alfred Marshall, in Muskingum township, July 14, 1866, Charles R. Stow, son of James S. and Elva Stow, of Rainbow, aged 22 years and 2 months. At the commencement of the late war, though but seventeen years of age, he was filled with a desire to be a soldier. In February, 1862, he lft home and traveled to Cross Lanes, West Va., where Company A of the 36th O.V.I. was then stationed, and in which he had two brothers, where he enlisted on the 17th of that month. Having served faithfully with his company until the campaign of Rosecrans to Chattanooga, he, by his conduct at the Battle of Chickamauga and Brown’s Ferry, Tenn., attracted the attention of Brig. Gen. Torchin, who detailed him as Orderly on his staff, a position requiring intelligence, promptness and courage. He filled his new position with honor to himself an to the full satisfaction of the General, until about the 1st of May, 1864, distinguishing himself by his bravery at Mission Ridge, and more especially at Rocky Face Mountain, for which he was strongly recommended to Gov. Brough for a commission as Second Lieutenant, by Generals Thomas, Palmer, Baird and Torchin, and was only prevented from receiving the commission by an order of the Governor requiring all promotions to be made by seniority, an order which might have been very properly violated in this instance. Corporal Stow was relieved from duty on Torchin’s staff and reported to his company in West Va. He was soon again in the saddle, having been detailed by Col. R.N. Hayes as his Orderly, with whom he served until his discharge, February 24, 1865. His last illness was very brief, having taken sick at Marietta on the evening of July 3rd. Continuing to grow worse until the afternoon of the 4th, he was removed to the residence of Mr. Alfred Marshall, his brother-in-law, not being well enough to be taken to his father’s near Lowell. He sank rapidly until the 14th, when, at half-past one o’clock A.M., he died, surrounded by his grief-stricken family. He retained full possession of his mind to the last, bade an affectionate adieu to his family, and departed to that course from which no traveler returns. The funeral services were held at the residence of his father, at 10 A.M., on the 15th, Rev. F. Cook, of Marietta, officiating in a religious capacity, choosing for his text II Samuel, 14:14. A large number of his old comrades of the 36th were present, testifying to their respect for the dead by the military badge of mourning on the left arm. Thus died a youth respected and beloved by all, one whose place can never be filled.

He had been a citizen of Marietta ten years.

Died: In Marietta township, Aug. 6, William Fay, aged 81. Mr. Fay came to Marietta from Westboro, Mass., in November, 1835, nearly thirty-one years ago.

Died: At his residence in Belpre, Washington County, Ohio, Tuesday evening, July 2nd, 1866, Mr. Rufus William Howe. Mr. H. was born in Belpre, June 17, 1807, and was consequently about fifty-nine. His mother was a daughter of Gen. Rufus Putnam, who led the company that settled at Marietta in 1732. His father, Deacon Perley Howe, was among the pioneer settlers of Belpre. The deceased, therefore, was one of the few who remain of the earlier citizens of the place. He was also the last survivor of a family of seven. He was long a member of the Congregational church. As a chorister, as an organizer, and a superintendent of Sabbath school, as a faithful attendant at prayer meetings, beside the more ordinary religious services, he appeared truly zealous in the name of Christ. But the progress of a painful affliction which gradually impaired his general health seems at length to have interfered with his active discharge of Christian duty. On the 17th of July, he experienced a severe chill. Shortly after, his illness assume an alarming character; and during the brief interval that remained till his death, he sank with fearful rapidity. As a judicious arrangement of his affairs had given him promise of an unusually tranquil and happy old age, it might have been feared a promise so cheering would scarcely be relinquished even by a Christian without deep regret. But when asked in view of his approaching desolation, if he was happy, [he said] “happy, yes very happy.” If thus happy while passing, racked with pain, through the dark valley of the shadow of death, while as yet he could not have forgotten the blessings of this life, nor adequately have foreseen the blessedness to come, how ___ [illegible] must be his joys, how glorious his triumphs now! [See issue of Aug. 16th for death of Mrs. Howe.]

Died: Aug. 9, 1866, at her residence, in Belpre, Mrs. Mary P. Howe, widow of the late R.W. Howe, in her 60th year. The deceased united with the Presbyterian church at Watertown in her sixteenth year. Thus for nearly fifty-four years she was an humble devoted follower of Jesus. Her religion was an influential principle permeating thought and word and deed. Those best acquainted had the strongest confidence in her piety. Though in a degree disqualified by a feeble constitution for the active duties of the Christian life, yet there was no lack of feeling or firmness as an advocate of religion. Her Christian simplicity and unaffected kindness secured the friendship of all who knew her. Those only who have long enjoyed her acquaintance can realize how deeply her departure will be felt. She will be missed at that home made desolate by the almost simultaneous death of two dear parents, and by that friendly group of which she has so long been a member and by a large circle of friends. But side by side in that beautiful burial place in Belpre, they who were but a few days since engaged in the active duties of life now repose. Many believers sleep there. “Sweet be their rest till He bid them arise, And hail him in triumph descending the skies.”

Died: At Vincent, Ohio, August 27th, 1866, Mrs. Eliza Amlin, aged 63 years. Mrs. Amlin’s sickness was of short duration, but attended with intense suffering at times. During all her suffering, no word of complaint was uttered, but she expressed herself as willing to suffer and to depart if God saw fit to call her home. At the age of 23 years she made a profession of religion and has ever manifested an interest in matters pertaining to the welfare of the cause of her Master. Always when circumstances would permit, she was at her post in the Sabbath School. There she delighted to be. For a few months previous to her death, she taught regularly a class of small boys to whom she became very much attached and she often during her sickness spoke of them and the school with which they were connected. During Saturday and Sunday, her mind wandered considerably and she imagined herself preparing for school. And once when she thought her class before her, was admonishing them to be good boys and love that Saviour who had taken little children in his arms and blessed them, saying “Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Her heart was full of sympathy for the distressed and bereaved. Her faith in Christ remained unshaken to the last. She was repeatedly heard to say, I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” [Bible reading follows.] Once when just aroused from slumber, she was heard faintly saying, “On Jordan’s banks.” One standing by said, “You will very soon cross the stream, Christ is waiting to convey you over, He will convey you safely.” She replied, “Yes, very soon, He will convey me safely, I know he will for he said he would.” On Sabbath evening, she was in her right mind and though very weak, attempted to sing [a hymn.] [Biblical reading follows.] She was an affectionate and kind mother, ever solicitous for the welfare and comfort of her children. As we stood with her by the river of death, we felt that there was a “bow in the cloud of grief.” Our loss is her gain. She hath done what she could and now doth rest from her labors in peace.
