In Memoriam

"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."

Sacred to the memory of Mr. Joseph Fulford, who died on Tuesday morning, October 6th, A. D., 1885 in the 69th year of his age.

By his uprightness, by his integrity, by his faithfulness in the discharge of his duties, he gained the confidence and esteem of our entire community.

Many were the obstacles he had to encounter. Although himself for a long time an invalid, with a large and singularly afflicted family, and having in a short period of time lost his wife, a daughter, and two sons, yet amid all his trials he was never known to complain, but manfully fought the great battle of life and only when completely worn-out, entirely exhausted, did he succomb.

On Wednesday afternoon the funeral services were held at Christ Church. For near thirty-five years, Mr. Fulford had been an honored member of the vestry of this church.

A good man has gone to rest. How comforting to his distressed family is the assurance that "All that to the end endure the cross, shall wear the crown."

"That they who oft have sown in tears Shall Reap again in joy."
