MARTHA MARTIN, consort of Joseph Martin, departed this life, June 29, 1852, aged 87 years. Mother Martin was a member of the M. E. Church upwards of forty years. Her house was a preaching place for a number of years, and a home for the faithful servants of God. And while they dispensed to her and others the bread of life, it was her delight to give of the bread that perisheth, and to make them comfortable while under her roof. Many of the preachers, on seeing this notice, cannot but reflect back upon the periods and circumstances alluded to above, and to the moral and religious character of this mother in Israel. Her stability and regular experience, as professor of religion, was a living comment to all who saw her. And while she lived to do good, by her example and precept, yet her last days were her best. Although she suffered extremely from a cancer on the nose, which mainly caused her death, she bore it with the utmost patience and resignation. She never was heard to utter a murmur, or complain of her lot; but expressed the strongest confidence in God, and her prospect of certain victory over her last enemy. Her funeral sermon was preached by the writer on the 19th of July, from Heb. ix 27, 28. May I with all others who read this, live as she lived, and die as she died.
