Obituary

At Mapleton, Oregon, June 7, 1909, the angel of death visited the home of S. B. Colvin and took him from his faithful wife, friends and home.  He reached the age of 66 years.  He was born in Highland, Ohio, March 15, 1843, served in the civil war 1861-1866 as a member of Company E, 11th Missouri volunteers; married in 1868 to Sarah E. Murphy.  One child, a girl, was born to them whom God saw fit to take home several years ago.  In 1879 he moved to California and thence to Oregon in 1890.  He was a member of Sherman’s Post G.A.R. and of Florence lodge, A.F. & A.M.

Funeral services were held in the Evangelical church, conducted by T. A. Yost.  A great number of his friends came to take a last look at the dear friend.  An abundance of flowers were brought to show the sincere love of his friends.  Mr. Colvin’s health had been failing for several years.  He bore his sickness and sufferings with great patience, and when the summons came to enter the Golden Gate he was prepared to heed the call of his Heavenly Father.   As he was passing away, he whispered his daughter’s name, and his last moments are best worded in these lines of his favorite hymn:

“My Saviour comes and walks with me, And sweet communion here have we.
 He gently leads me by his hand, for this is heaven’s border land.

“The zephers seem to float to me, Sweet sounds of heaven’s melody As
angels with the white-robed throng Join in the sweet redemption song.”

 A Friend.
