Obituary - Northern Christian Advocate - August 30, 1877
Rev. Enoch BARNES died of cancer, at his home in Sackett's Harbor, Jefferson County, New York, June 10, 1877, in the 86th year of his age. Brother BARNES was formerly a member of the Black River Conference, but latterly a minister of the Seventh Day Baptist people. He was a faithful and instructive teacher of the Word. He is spoken of by his friends in both denominations as eminently useful. The last ten years of his life were years of great suffering, but he endured with great Christian patience and fortitude as seeing him who is unseen. His last hours found him serene and peaceful, as only the faithful servant can be in the last struggle. May the God of wisdom sustain and sanctify this Christian death to the good widow, surviving children and friends. Mrs. BARNES is still a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. Samuel M. FISK
THE SABBATH RECORDER, JUNE 28, 1877
DEATH OF ELD. ENOCH BARNES.
Eld. Enoch Barnes died of cancer, at his residence, Sackett's Harbor, N.Y., June 9th, 1877.
Eld. Barnes was born Nov. 28th, 1791; he was therefore in the 86th year of his age. At the age of nineteen he married his wife, who survives him. For some time previous to this event, he had been a professing Christian. In the war of 1812, when the British army landed at Sackett's Harbor, he was one of those who rushed to the front in defense of the country. He, however, served but a few months in the army. When about twenty-five years of age, he entered the Christian ministry. He was at this time a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. As a circuit preacher, he did good service for the Master, many conversions resulting from his labors. About thirty years ago, he made a resolution, as he has often said, to read the Bible more carefully, and endeavor in all respects to follow its teachings fully. This resolution conscientiously carried out soon led him to see and accept the truth concerning God's Sabbath. Since then, he has been in hearty sympathy with Seventh-day Baptists, and a member of the Seventh-day Baptist church. He has been, most of this time, the pastor of the Hounsfield Church. He spent some time with the Greenmanville Church, I believe, in exchange with Bro. Griswold. He also at one time served the Scott Church for about a year.
Bro. Barnes was a man of character, in the fullest sense of the word. He had clear and positive opinions, and he was conscientiously loyal to his convictions. His daily life was an example of integrity and Christian living. He was honest and true in business, even in temper, and devotional in spirit. His life-long acquaintances bear testimony that "he was a good man." As a preacher, he was methodical and logical. His sermons were well calculated to instruct. He impressed people with the idea, too, that he spoke from conviction, that he was in right earnest in what he said. He loved the work. And he felt that the salvation of sinners was of such pressing importance that he must be doing. It was a great trial to him to give up preaching. Indeed, he continued to preach regularly, and acceptably, too, until about three years ago, when, in consequence of the rapid development of his disease, he very reluctantly yielded to the advice of his friends, and discontinued his public efforts.
For some months before his death, he was a great sufferer. But he bore all with Christian courage, patiently waiting the Lord's time. The last time the writer visited him he repeated the passage: "With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation." Psalm 91:16. These words, he said, were fulfilled in his case. His life had been long enough, and the Lord had given him his great salvation. This text he also selected for his funeral sermon. We mourn a good man and a standard-bearer gone. But we rejoice that the faithful soldier, having finished the fight, has gone to wear the crown.
