"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 3, No 14, p 55, Sep. 24, 1846.

In Johnstown, Rock Co., W. T., on the morning of the 25 ult, of cholera morbus, Lois, wife of Elder Daniel Babcock, in the 58th year of her age.

Sister Babcock embraced religion in early life, became a member of the 1st Seventh-day Baptist Church in Brookfield, N. Y., removed her standing to the 1st Alfred church at its organization; thence to the Milton church, whence she departed to join the church triumphant whose names are written in heaven.

During the space of nearly thirty-eight years, in which she followed her Saviour in her pilgrimage, it is believed that she lived above reproach, and well adorned her profession, giving evidence of steadfastness in the faith, high and holy aims, and an unshaken confidence in the promises of her Saviour. Well did she exemplify the exhortation of the apostle, to "use hospitality." as everyone who sat by her board or her fireside can fully testify. For benevolence, sterling integrity of character, affability, and indeed all of the social graces, she had few if any superiors. She was a faithful and affectionate wife, a kind and good mother, a loving sister, a steadfast friend, and a living Christian.

She bore her last sickness, which was very severe, with entire patience and resignation, and when death struck the fatal blow, she resigned up her soul without a struggle or a groan, with the fullest assurance of a glorious immortality, and left her family and friends bathed in tears.
