The Post, Wednesday, 8/20/1856.
DIED - MR. BERNARD ABELL - On the 25th ult., Mr. Bernard Abell, in the 68th year of his age. At the age of nine months, the deceased was brought from Maryland to Kentucky, by his parents; who took their abode on the Rolling Ford, amidst the red hunters of the forest. Those who have known him from childhood, bear honorable testimony to his character in all the relations of life; as husband, father, neighbor, and citizen. But the most important of all, is his christian character; and one of the most admirable traits of his character, is that unwavering trust in the wisdom and goodness of his Heavenly Father, which made him always cheerful and contented throught all the vicissitudes of life. In his last tedious illness, while death seemed slowly approaching, he beheld lying in the same room, her who had been his cherished bosom companion, for nearly half a century; and who, on the bed of affliction, had been solaced by his tender care and solicitude for a dozen years; and thinking of her bereavement in her latter days, when she would most need his attention, he wept with the tender affection of a truly christian husband. But having paid this tribute, which both nature and piety demanded, he calmly resigned all into the hand of divine Providence, with a sweet confidence that God would turn all to good, and quietly offered his soul to be called for at the moment, and in the manner most pleasing to his Lord.
