    In Ceres, N. Y., Sept. 10th, 1860, after a lengthy, and by spells a very distressing illness, of over two years duration, Mrs. Prudence Crandall, wife of Capt. Matthew M. Crandall, and daughter of Dea. Zaccheus Maxson, aged 73 years and 11 months. Sister C. professed faith in Christ about forty years ago, and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church in DeRuyter, N. Y. When the Seventh-day Baptist Church in Truxton, N. Y., was organized, she became a member of it. She in 1831 removed to Genesee, N. Y., and settled in this place. At the organization of the 2d S. D. B. Church in Genesee, in 1834, she united with it. She has ever been a faithful and consistent member, until called to join the church triumphant. Her prayers and exhortations will not soon be forgotten.
    The day before she died, she called her family around her, to sing and pray, in which she took part. She bore her sufferings with Christian fortitude. She died in the confident assurance of a blessed immortality. In her death, the Church has lost one of its valuable members. Her deeds of benevolence and kindness were prominent in the community where she lived. The poor always shared her bounty. The sick and distressed found in her a willing helper in time of need. She leaves an afflicted companion, a large family of children and relatives, to mourn her departure. C. S. C.
