Unidentified Newsclipping - 1892
MACK.--William Mack, Jr., was born in Northampton County, Pa., nearly opposite Belvidere, Aug 2, 1806, being the sixth of a family of thirteen. His father was a native of Pennsylvania. His mother, whose maiden name was Rachel Gulick, was a native of Virginia, near Winchester. March 22, 1832, he was united in marriage to Rachel Everett, at Easton, Pa. They established their home at Richmond, Pa., where eight children were born to them. The mother and four children still survive. Brother and Sister Mack were both converted on a New Years's Eve, about two years previous to their marriage, at a cottage prayer meeting. About the year 1867 he, with his family, removed to Tunkhannock, Wyoming County, Pa., to pursue his business as a carriage manufacturer, at which he worked through the week and filled such appointments as were given him as Local Preacher on Sabbath days, The Methodist Episcopal church was his choice, in which he filled various positions acceptably up to the time when his eyesight failed him. His license as Local Preacher was renewed only a few days before his death, which occurred after an illness of about six months at his home, in Tuckhannock, March 16, 1892. Father Mack, as he was familiarly known, lived an exemplary life, enjoying many precious seasons with the Lord, not only in church services, but would often become happy while engaged in business, astonishing the men who were at work around him by overflowing with laughter and praises to God. As he lived, so he died. His last words were "Blessed Saviour, come and take me." The funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. J. F. Warner, assisted by the Rev. J. H. Brown, of the Presbyterian church.
