DEATHS. --Chancy Taft died at his residence in Farmington, Trumbull Co., Ohio, August 28, 1870, aged 73 years.
He was born in Marlborough, Ct., Aug. 18, 1797, came to Farmington in 1817. He was united in marriage with Miss Nancy Lewis, March 25, 1819, he was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church under the labors of Rev. John Chandler, in 1829; from that time until his death his house was a house of prayer and a home for ministers of the Gospel, where they ever met with a hearty and cordial welcome. Of our dear brother it may be said, he was diligent in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. He was benevolent, contributing liberally to the cause of God. Among his last donations was one of two thousand dollars for the erection of the new church edifice at West Farmington, on the foundation of which he done his last labor. After a few days of great suffering he was not, for the Master had called his faithful servant home to rest. May his mantle fall on the young men of the church; may his good example as a citizen and as a christian, long live to bless and benefit those who survive him.
