    In Leonardsville, N. Y., Dec. 29th, 1864, Mrs. Sarah Webster, wife of Dea. James Webster, aged 83 years. Sister Webster lived to a ripe old age, and passed away after a brief illness of only three days, so gently that it seemed more like falling asleep than the stroke of death. Born in Hopkinton, R. I., 1781, she moved with her father's family to the State of New York in 1795, and was married to Reynolds Greenman in 1800. Soon after, she moved to Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., where she was baptized by her father, Eld. [Henry] Clarke, and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church in Berlin, then under the pastoral care of Eld. Wm. Satterlee. In June, 1805, sister Webster removed to Leonardsville, and united with the 1st Brookfield Church, and at the time of her death had been in uninterrupted membership of this church over fifty-nine years. Her Christian character was a life law, leading her to find her pleasure in doing the will of Him in whom her soul found delight. She was remarkable for her acquaintance with the Bible, and her familiarity with the general teachings and histories of that blessed book. Aside from her more casual readings, she had read the Word of God through thirty-four times. Her funeral was held in the Seventh-day Baptist Church at Leonardsville on the first day of the New Year, 1865, when a sermon was preached from Isaiah 33: 17 - "Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty; they shall behold the land that is very far off."
