Sarah H. Brodie

DIED—On the 10th inst., in Lebanon, Mrs. Sarah H. Brodie, wife of Mr. Thomas F. Brodie, in the 54th year of her age. After about two week’s illness death closed her pilgrimage on earth. She embraced the religion of Christ in 1811, and we are happy to learn that during a period of about thirty-eight years she never lost the evidence of her acceptance with God. Just before she left the world she made the following request of a friend: “Tell all my friends, far and near, that I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and that there is a crown of life laid up for me in heaven. There is not a cloud between me and that bright world.”

Amanda Jeffrey

DIED—On Thursday morning the 9th inst., Mrs. Amanda Jeffrey, wife of Samuel Jeffrey, in the 40th year of her age.

The deceased was one of those happily constituted beings who, possessed of a mild, affable and cheerful disposition, seemed to impart those virtues to all around her. Warmly attached to her friends she in return was respected, esteemed, and loved by all who had the happiness of her acquaintance.

Early impressed with a sense of her dependence upon an All wise and Omnipotent Power, she, in her youth embraced religion, and obtained through its benign influence a serenity and peace of mind seldom attained, which accompanied her through the many afflictions endured through life, and enabled her to triumph in the hour of death.

Sensible of her approaching dissolution she called her family to her bedside, where, after exhorting them to bear this afflicting dispensation with calmness and resignation, as their loss (but temporal) must be her eternal gain, she commended them to the Lord, with a fervent desire that he would take them into his holy keeping, exhorting them to comfort one another, and to be always prepared to obey the summons to meet her in the society of the blessed. As exhausted nature gradually gave way, heavenly visions opened to her view, and she seemed to experience a foretaste of the joys that awaited her, and without a struggle or a sigh she fell into a calm sleep—it was the sleep of death.

An affectionate daughter and sister, a devoted and confiding wife, an indulgent and affectionate mother, thus severed from family and friends, leaves a void in the hearts of the bereaved never to be filled—a wound never to be healed while fond memory lingers upon her virtues.

Jonathan W. Davis

DIED—On the 29th ult. in Waynesville, Jonathan W. Davis, M.D., of cholera, in the 29th year of his age. He was suddenly attacked on the evening of the 28th, about two miles from home, and so rapid was the course of the disease that a collapse took place in a few hours. “Dull grave! thou spoilst the dance of youthful blood.” How often does it happen that the fell destroyer claims the most promising for his victims. The subject of this notice took his degree in medicine in the Ohio Medical College in the spring of 1847, and was in the full career of usefulness in his profession. In his death the medical profession is deprived of an intelligent, devoted, and successful coadjutor—the community of a worthy and useful citizen—and the Christian church to which he belonged of a consistent member. By his affable and conciliatory manners as a citizen, he had won the esteem of all the community, and the affection of a numerous circle of intimate friends.

James Smith

DIED—At his residence in Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio, on the 8th inst. of Dropsy, James Smith, aged about 57 years. The deceased was a member of the Society of Friends. He had been confined to his room for more than three months previous to his decease from a broken limb, which was thought to hasten the progress of the disease that carried him off.

William L. Roof

DIED—August 4, 1849, at the residence of his father, William L. Roof, in the 21st year of his age. He never knew the enjoyment of good health. He was impressed with the necessity of preparation for Death. He sought the Lord and found in Him a refuge. He conversed freely with his friends, and expressed himself hopefully if it was the Lord’s will that he should die. With the patience, and the confidence, and the resignation of a Christian, thus he met his end.
