    In Brookfield, N. Y., January 24, 1908, M. Willett Clarke, in the 82d year of his age.
    M. Willett Clarke was born in the town of Brookfield, November 12, 1825, and was one of eleven children born to David and Lydia Frink Clarke. They were: Mrs. William Greene, Mrs. Patten Fitch, Tacy and Ursula Clarke, Mrs. Solomon Carpenter, Mrs. James Hills, Dexter and Truman Clarke, Mrs. Hezekiah Greene, M. Willett Clarke and Mrs. F. J. Lavantia Chase. Brother Willett Clarke was the last of his large family to be called home.
    Brother Clarke was baptized in 1855 and in a way was identified with the Free Will Baptist Church, though observing the Seventh-day as the Sabbath. In 1895, he joined with the Second Brookfield Seventh-day Baptist Church of which he has since remained a most consistent member.
    January 22, 1848, he was married to Elizabeth Lewis, sister of Rev. Chas. M. and Rev. H. B. Lewis, and for sixty years they lived a quiet, happy life, saddened only by the death angel which claimed all but two of their seven children. Though Brother Clarke had reached the fullness of years, he will be greatly missed in the community where he has so long resided. The memory of his upright character, his everyday Christian living, his kind and sympathetic ways, his cheerful and hopeful view of life will be a constant inspiration to his wide circle of friends, and the church which he loved.
    Funeral services were conducted by his pastor at the late home and the burial was in the Brookfield Rural Cemetery. W. L. G.
