    35:45:3, November 6, 1879.

    In Richburg, N. Y., Sept. 18th, 1879, of hemorrhage of the bowels, after a brief illness, Lemuel Rogers, in the 85th year of his age.

    Bro. Rogers was born in Waterford, Conn., Oct. 10th, 1795, and embraced religion in his eighteenth year. His Christian life was a long one of fifty-seven years, in which we believe his walk was not only with God's people, but with God. If conspicuous for anything, it was for his quiet, even, and consistent way of life. In 1822, he moved to this place from Waterford, and married the wife (Hannah Steward) who now, by his death, is left in her aged widowhood.

    In his death, the church loses one of the few constituent members, who were here in the olden days when as yet, it was an unsolved problem whether there should be a Seventh-day Baptist Church in Richburg. His name stands among the early standard bearers of those early times. Over fifty years he has been identified with the cause we love, and now he lays down his armor and his sword for the victor's crown.

    In the church, his vacant seat will long remind us of our loss, and his aged widow, as the chief mourner, with his children find their only comfort in the religion which was so long his stay and support, and which in death is his inheritance and reward.

    His pastor being absent, Eld. W. B. Gillette, of Nile, and old and intimate friend of the deceased, preached his funeral at Richburg, on Sabbath day, Sept. 19th.
