OBIT:
THE LAURENSVILLE HERALD, October 7, 1853
At his Residence in this district, on the 27th Ult., Mr. Jesse Garrett, aged 87 years and 20 days---painful as it is to see torn from us the young and ardent of our friends, whose promise in life appear bright and useful, still more painful must it be to see torn from our midst the old and steady prop of a large circle of family and friends; whose life of usefulness and love had entwined around him the tenderest feelings of affection and reverence, as was the case of the deceased.
Mr. G. had been a bright and effeicent member of the Baptist Church for many years and in all his intercourse with his fellow-men exemplified the Christian character in its most beautiful and humble features. He has left a large family and many friends to mourn their irrearable loss; but all must feel the proud consolation of believing that he has left a world of vanity and trouble to enjoy that eternal life of substance and peace which is promised to all who "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and keep his commandments".
