Maysville, Jones Co., N. G., May 24, 1878.
Dear Brother Gold:—
Pleasa publish the death of my dear aunt,
and mother in Israel, MARY. T BELL,
who deported this life the 16th of Dec., 1876.
Her father and mother (Eld. Jabez and Sarah
Weeks) have bean dead many years. She
was the only living child. She was married
to Wra. F. Bell of Carteret County in the
year 1831, by whom she had two children,
one son and one daughter. Her son died
about twelve months before her death. She
was living with her daughter, Mra. MoUie
Gilbert, at the time of her death, and had
been since the death of her husband, about
six years ago.
She applied for admittance into the Bap
tist church at Hadnot’s Creek, Carteret Co ,
X. C.. on Saturday before the first Sunday in
March, 1856, and was joyfully recievcd and
baptized on Sunday by Fllder Josiah Smith,
where she remained in full fellowship until
she was taken from the toils and afflictions
of this world, to enter into that everlasting
rest, where neither pain, sin, sorrow nor
death can ever enter, and where parting will
be no more. In all the affairs of this life she
showed for-th that quiet, calm iiml patient
spirit which characterizes the true disciple of
the meek and lowly Jesns. Perhaps few are
more in the Spirit of our ble.s.sed Lord than
she wa.s. She wa.s beloved by all who knew
her, and in her the church has lost a consist
ent and orderly walking member. For ma
ny years, before she did, she was impressed to
join the church,-but from various causes she
wtt* prevented until about 20 years ago, when
shq wa» made willing and an.xious to come
into the fold and confess her Lord anXl Savior
before tliis dying world, and follow him
through evil as well os good report.
How peaceful is the closing scene,
When virtue yields its breath;
How .sweetly beams the smile serene.
Upon tlie cheek of death 1
The Christian’s hope no fear can blight,
No pain hsr peace destroy;
She views beyond, the realm of light,
A pure and endless joy.
O ! who can gaze with heedleas eye,
On scenes so far away ;
Who but exclaims, thn.s let me die 1
And be mv end like hers.
I have often heard her speak of her trials
and .sufferings-while under conviction for sin,
and the happy season she enjoyed when, as
she then hoped, the blessed Savior revealed
himself to her in the removing of all her
guilt and condemnation, which I would like
to insert liere if I could sum them up in or
der, but it would only be a recital of the ex
perience of every child of grace as the blessed
truth teaches us; for ail God’s people are
taught of him and great is their peace. She
was confined only about one week in her
death sickness, though her health had been
declining for many years. The circum.stan-
ces of her death were very distressing to her
dear daughter, who was sick and confined to
her room, and could not see the last of her
beloved and Christian mother. May the bless
ed Lord sanctify this sad bereavement to the
eternal good of her dear daughter and fami
ly, and all her mourning friends and rela
I accompanied my companion on the first
Sunday in this inat. to H:sdnot’s Creek where,
by request, he preached the funeral of my
dear aunt, lo a large congregation, using the
33th and 39th verses of the 8th chapter of
Ramans for a text. I hope a bles,sing may
attend the same:
Johnston Co., N. C., M.ay 28, 1876.
Elder P. D. Gold—Dear Brother:—
Will you piea.se publish this obituary no
tice of my wife—SALLIE ANN BRADY—
who departed this life on the niglit of tlie
15th of May, probably from drop.sy of
the chest. She had for some time pre
vious to her death been complaining of short
ness of breath, and declining in her bodily
strength, but kept up attending to her domes
tic affairs even until the night of her death.—
On the night of her death she appeal’d to be
as well as usual, wa.shing the dishes. We
all retired about 9 o’clock and went to sleep,
except herself. About 10 o’clock .she was
sitting by the fire, when she called her sister
to get up, that she was dying. We all arose
and administered to her for a short time, but
she (lied in a few minutes. She said that she
was in no pain, and talked to the last, giving
charge concerning her children, the oldest of
whom wa.s ten years old—the youngest two
months—six in number. She never made a
public profession of Christ. Like Martha,
she seemed to be hindered by the cares of this
life. When about twelve or fifteen year5.old
she discovered that all was not well, and that
*he was ten thou.sand talents in debt and not
a farthing wherewitli to pay. She seemed to
be dead to sin, and when I was baptized, in
Nov. 1868, she seemed to be in quite a wan
dering condition. The brethren and sisters
know that sheep are of a wandering nature.
She had a dream of going to the church at
Union, awhile before she died, and that Eld.
Wm. Brown was moderator, and all she
could say wa.s, that she had nothing to tell.
When Elder Brown said to her, “ Tell me
what you at one time before told me.” This
much she told me, but was so affected she
never got through telling the dream.
I have no doubt of her everlasting happi
ness. I believe that to-day my wife is in the
Paradise of God, walking the golden streets of
the New Jerusalem. The loss is very heavy
to me, and 1 amjike the lonesome dove, I go
alone and sigh and mourn. She delighted to
hear the Landmark read, but now she is no
more, and although she w.as my companion
here in this world of trouble, she is now with
the bles.sed Jesu.s, and composes a part of the
Lamb’s wife in glory, where she is beholding
him, crowned with a crown of twelve stars,
end clothed with the Sun, no more to
'sin, but richly clad in blood-washed linen—
singing a new .song.
Brethren and sisters, pray for ns, that we
may bear up under our troubles.
Farewell. S. H. Brady.
