In Barnston August 21st, John Bellows, Esq. Mr. Bellows was born in the town of Dalton Mass., whence in 1801, at the age of 17, he came with his parents the hood he, by his industry and savings, paid for and took a deed of a lot of land on which his father had previously located his family. By his good management he was able not only to support his parents in their old age, but also to acquire property with which to do much good. He with others of the same spirit laid the foundation of that thrift and prosperity now so manifest in that flourishing and enterprising township. Not in temporal things only, has he left a fair record. He early became a disciple of Jesus Christ; was a lover of good men, and he was among the first members who organized themselves into a Christian church in that township. He encouraged the preacher of the gospel, and aided in their support. Sojourners found a ready hospitality at his house and the cause of Christ abroad, as well as at home, found him a willing supporter. Having lived about 68 years on the above named lot, holding fast still to the faith of the gospel, he died as above and 21 days. On the 23rd inst., his remains were followed_after discourse by Elder E. Mitchell from 2 Tim. Iv., 7,8- by a large gathering of mourners and neighbors to their last resting place in the family burying ground, on the same farm, and where lay the remains of his vulnerable parents, his first wife and only son. Leaving a widow, a daughter and her husband and three grandchildren to mourn the separation. [ 2 Timothy 47 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.], (Stanstead Journal, 2 Sept. 1869)
