Garret Morris

DIED
On the 11th instant, Garret, son of John and Jane Morris, aged five years and two months.

Death has all seasons for his own,
He wanders through earth’s bowers,
And plucks, with an unsparing hand,
The buds as well as flowers.
A bud of promise was this boy
Just bursting into bloom,
But nipped before its blossoming
And laid into the tomb.

Death’s signet rests upon his brow,
Closed are the sparkling eyes,
The little active agile form
All cold and lifeless lies.
But far beyond the shining stars,
Above all earth’s alarms,
His ransomed soul has found a rest
Within the Saviour’s arms.

Sarah Jane Snuff Morris

Mrs. Jonathan Morris, who has been confined to her room since early last Spring, quietly and suddenly passed away on Tuesday morning, the 14th inst. The cause of her death was a complication of diseases, and of such a character that medicine seemed to afford her no permanent relief. She was born in Warren County, Ohio, June 22, 1828. Sixteen years ago, she with her husband and children came to Michigan and located in Niles Township, where they remained until about two years ago, when they moved into this township. Some ten years ago she, and her husband and three oldest children, were converted, and united with the Berrien Centre Free Will Baptist Church, and she has remained a faithful and consistent Christian until her death. She died firm in the Christian’s faith and a blessed hope of a glorious immortality beyond the grave. Previous to her death she had made a request that Elder Lewis Jones, her former pastor and by whom she was baptized, should preach her funeral sermon, and as he could not attend the funeral, the sermon was postponed. The services were conducted by Rev. W. M. Smith, of Berrien Springs.
