    Obituary: 02/08/1856:3 Middleboro Gazette
    Mr. John Ramsdell, who recently died in Lakeville, in the 70th year of his age,
    had been severely tried in the furnace of affliction. In 1815, his leg was so terribly
    fractured by a falling timber, that the bones pierced through his boot. This event
    confined him to his bed 100 days, and rendered him a cripple all his life. About the year
    1828 he with his wife, hopefully experienced religion under the preaching of Elder Loring,
    and joined the Freewill Baptist Church, of which they were exemplary members. Mrs.
    Ramsdell's death in 1848 led him to lay hold on the hope set before him, with a firmer grasp.
    Two years previous to the close of his life he was sorely afflicted with a cancer,
    yet his patience was such that he was never heard to complain of his lot.
    His exit was sudden, having fallen upon the ice, on Jan. 5th he injured his knee,
    which so affected the whole system, that he died on the 7th, being lamented by those
    who knew him, as a good citizen, kind father, tender husband, and sincere christian.
    Elder Tyler attended his funeral, preaching a very applicable discourse, from Rev. 7:13,14.
    Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.
