Death--At Owings Mills, Baltimore county, Maryland, on the 24th ult., of Billious Pleurisy, Mr. John Budd, late of Sunbury, aged 45 years. The shafts of death are flying around us thick and fast. We have scarcely time to recover from the shock occasioned by the death of a friend or relative, until another victim is added to the list. Frail indeed is the tenure of this life and yet with what pertinacity do we all cling to its last thread-its vain desires and its evanescent hopes. The death of Mr. Bud, came upon us suddenly and unexpected. Until within a few weeks past, the deceased was a resident of this place. He came amongst us about eight years since, a stranger, and has left behind him a large circle of friends who knew and appreciated his worth as a man, and his consistent and irreproachable conduct as a christian. The has left a wife and two children, to whom he was most devotedly attached, to mourn their sudden bereavement. Although in the prime of life, his health, of late, had become infirm, probably by a too close and assiduous attention to his duties, which he discharged with the most scrupulous exactness. The deceased was a zealous and efficient member of the Baptist Church, and his death will be regretted, not only by his fellow members of that church, but by all who have a regard for moral worth and Christian rectitude.(Sunbury American and Shamokin Journal, Sunbury, Northumberland Co., Pa., Saturday, February 3, 1849) - transcribed by Tammy Clark
