DIED. John Chick was born January 27th, 1799, in South Charel, Somerset, England, emigrated to the United States in 1830, and settled in Gallia county, Ohio, near the village of Patriot, which place he made his home the principal part of the time for about fifty years. During this time, by industry and economy, he amassed a considerable amount of wealth, and also numerous and warm friends, many of whom followed him to his last resting place with hearts stricken with sorrow at the loss they had sustained. Mr. Chick never saw proper to unite with any branch of the church after leaving his mother country and church, but was a firm believer in revealed religion, and for years a friend and supporter of the cause of the redeemer, up to the last day of his life, which came to him on the 17th of April, 1880, and found him firmly trusting in Jesus as his only Savior and nearest friend. His many friends are therefore not called upon to mourn as those which have no hope, for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. J. D. HATHAWAY. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, May 20, 1880 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]

Elizabeth J. Claflin
DIED. In Addison township, Gallia county, Ohio, December 24th, 1873, Mrs. Elizabeth J. Claflin, wife of Abraham Claflin, of congestive chills, aged 36 years, 6 months and 8 days. Her sickness was short. Snatched away without any special warning. She has often made the remark to her friends in the past four or five years, that she did not expect to live long, her health being poor; in view of the uncertainty of life and the certainty of death, for some years had been laying up treasures in Heaven, where moth nor rust doth not corrupt, nor thieves break through and steal. Had made a good profession before many witnesses; was a consistent and exemplary member of the Freewill Baptist Church; loved by all for her kindness and Christian bearing. Our loss is her eternal gain. She leaves a husband, five children, an aged father and mother, four brothers and a large circle of friends to mourn her irreparable loss. They don't mourn without hope of meeting her in Heaven, where there is neither sickness, sorrow, pain nor death.
One thing shall comfort all her friends, That she has gone to rest; No sore temptations snare her feet, No troubles cross her breast. She was beloved by every one, And her death has cast a gloom Which time alone can efface, For none can fill her room.

Mr. John Clark an estimable citizen of Morgan township, died recently after a short illness. His companion had preceded him to the betterland but a few months since.[Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, November 25, 1875 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]
Died, near Porter, Gallia county, O., Nov. 15th, 1875, Mr. John Clark,in the 52d year of his age.
His sickness and death were very unexpected, and his departure is deeply bemoaned by all who knew him. He has passed away, leaving no enemies, and many friends. All feel that a very worthy citizen has been called away, and his bereaved children have the warmest sympathy of the entire community. Scarcely had they ceased to weep over the death of their sainted mother, when the grave was opened to receive the mortal remains of their father, and they, four sons and two daughters, left orphans in a world of temptation, to work out, each for himself, the great problem of a useful life and a happy immortality. In the midst of their deep sorrow, the Bible comes with its encouragement, "A Father of the fatherless, is God in His holy habitation:"--Ps. 68:5th. "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up:"--Ps. 27:10. Mourning friends were much consoled by his testimony, that months previous to his sickness, he had experienced that great spiritual change denominated in the Bible, being born again. We commit his body to the tomb, in full assurance that He who in the beginning said, "let there be light and there was light," will in the end of the world say to all the dead. "Let there be life and life shall be." H. R. HOWE. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, December 2, 1875 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]

William E. Clendinen
DIED--In this town, on Monday morning last, William E. Clendinen, aged 14 years. The death of this interesting youth adds another to the multitude of proofs with which the world is filled, that the best and purest die young. Although a mere child in years, and suffering constantly from the effects of a painful malady, he had by his manly virtues already accured the esteem of all who knew him; and the thoughtful consideration and filial interest he always manifested in the welfare of his widowed mother, were the theme of universal commendation. It might well be said of him, "None knew him but to love him, None named him but to praise." May he who "tempers the wind to the shorn lamb" sustain his afflicted parent in her sorrow, with that strength which comes only from his grace, and with those hopes which only his promises can inspire.

Drowned. -- Three colored men, in attempting to cross the river, Saturday night, about 11 o'clock, were drowned. Their names are, Henry Alexander, June Coleman and ____ Smith, residents of this city. The wind was blowing a gale, and the waves running high, and it is supposed the boat upset or filled with water. Their cries for help were fearful. Messrs. R. Aleshire, jr., Police officer Wm. Cromley, jr., Geo. Denny and Chas. Robinson, manned a skiff and went to their assistance, but they were too late; nothing was seen of either the skiff or the men.
P. S. We learn that Alexander was saved. He kept his hold on the skiff until he had floated to near Clipper Mill, a distance of about three miles, when he was relieved from his perilous position by the steamer Julia No. 2. He reports the other two drowned soon after the capsizing of the boat.

Feeling that her sins were pardoned, she at once commenced laboring for the salvation of others. She was a faithful and devoted member of the M. E.Church for 53 years. When the messenger called she was ready and waiting, smiling at death as though the best friend had come. May the writer and reader be as fully prepared. M. S. VAUGHN.
