    James Franklin Greenman was born in Stephentown, N. Y., Oct. 5, 1828, and died at his home in Farina, Ill., July 13, 1907.

    He moved with his parents to Berlin when he was a child. In early life he made a profession of religion and joined the Seventh-day Baptist church in Berlin. He served the church for several years as chorister. On August 29, 1850, he was married to Miss Ellen W. Satterlee, with whom he happily lived about fifty-seven years. To them was born one child, Sarah Lucinda, who died when about eleven years old.

    About six years of their married life were spent in Petersburg, N. Y., from which place he moved to Farina, in 1868. He at once united with the Farina Seventh-day Baptist Church and was always a prominent member, ready to discharge all the duties pertaining to church fellowship.

    Mr. Greenman came to Farina on account of his health, and much to the surprise of those who knew him, he lived to a good old age. For several months past he has been confined to his home. Patiently he bore his long and exhausting sickness, and realizing that he was on his death couch, he often said he was only waiting till the Master called.

    Farewell services were held at his home on Sunday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, assisted by Rev. Messrs. Charles A. Burdick and L. D. Seager.
