Ambrose Bryant


Plymouth, Ills., Nov. 14th, 1876.

 PEACE, the death of our beloved Brother, Ambrose Bryant, member of Middle
 Creek church, who departed this life July 25, A. D. 1876, aged, 66 years,
 4 months and 20 days. The subject of this notice was born in the state of
 Virginia, Floyd county, March 5th, 1810. Emigrated to Hancock Co.,
 Illinois, in 1835, and united with the Middle Creek Church, of regular
 Baptists, in 1839, where he continued a worthy member until his death.
 The brethren who knew him, as well as the writer, can bear witness to his
 kindness and hospitality to his brethren, and his fidelity to the church
 and cause he had espoused. The church feels their loss of such a member,
 and mourn his absence, though not as those who have no hope, for we
 verily believe our loss is his unspeakable gain.

 He leaves an only daughter and son-in-law, with two small children, who
 realize their loss of such a parent, they well deserve the sympathy and
 prayers of the christian community for their kindness and hospitality to
all who call on them, is worthy of commendation. O, may the good Lord
 sustain them in this sore trial. At his funeral the feelings of the
 community was manifested by the large crowd of solemn and mourning
 spectators, who was in attendance, and Elder T. Jones and the unworthy
writer, tried to comfort the friends with the prospect of immortality
 brought to light through the Gospel, after which his remains was followed
 to the grave, and entered to remain until the resurrection of the just.
