John Krewson

DIED—On the 1st inst., in the 22d year of his age, Mr. John Krewson.

Brother Krewson was a young man of exemplary life, and hence a valuable member of this community. In the death of this young man this community has lost a valuable citizen. He was a young man of modest, unassuming, and retired habits of life, hence, I suppose, he was never estimated by this community up to his real value as a man and citizen. But in the private circle, where he was best known, he was most valued; yet he was a young man highly esteemed by all who knew him. In 1840 he embraced the religion of our Lord Jesus Christ, and from that time up to his death he endeavored to live religiously, as he testified upon his dying bed. Although he never united himself with the visible Church of Christ, yet he sustained connection with the invisible church, being united with Christ by faith. From his own testimony we believe he has gone to the reward of the righteous. A short time before his death, he spoke in terms of regret that he had not united with the church. In this dispensation of divine providence the brothers and sisters have met with a great loss; but their loss is his infinite gain. “Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his.”
