Ref: Abraham Kline Cramer -- Cramer -- Passed away at his residence, near Monticello, Jones Co., IA, Nov. 21, 1873, Deacon Abraham K. Cramer, who was born in the state of New Jersey, Feb. 25, 1797.

At the age of nineteen he left the scene of his childhood and youth to seek a home in the then new state of Ohio, and located at Hubbard, in Trumbull County, where he lived for fifty years. Notwithstanding his advantages for acquiring an education were limited, he was a man of more than ordinary intelligence. He was a great reader, was never contented with the opinions of others, but in all matters, wither of Church or State, in both of of which he took an active part, he must decide for himself.

In State affairs he was always actuated by that love of country which prompted his father, Captain Frederick Cramer, in the dark days of '76, to buckle on the sword and march forth at the head of a company of volunteers to defend his country's rights under General Washington. Having been reared in the Presbyterian Church, of which his parents were members, he was early indoctrinated in their peculiar views. But, when he came to realize that religion is a personal concern, he began to investigate the word of God for himself, and after much prayer made a full-surrender to Jesus. At the age of twenty-three, in obedience to the great command, he was buried with Christ in baptism.

He identified himself with the Hubbard Baptist Church, which had only been organized the previous year. His membership with this church continued until his removal to Iowa, eight years ago -- a period of forty-five years -- and during the last thirty years of his time he served the church as one of its deacons. The interests of the Redeemer's kingdom were ever near his heart.

When the doctrines of the Disciples shook the Baptist Church he remained steadfast realizing that the principles of the gospel must not be sacrificed; and, when they had been depleted to a single half dozen, he felt that to abandon the Baptist Church would be to surrender the cause of his Master, whom he so much loved. He therefore determined to measure well each disputed step, and if the word of God would sustain them they would hold the fort in spite of all odds; and thus he labored on in prayer year after year, God blessing the efforts of the little band, until he had the satisfaction of seeing the Hubbard Baptist Church firmly established and exerting a telling influence upon the entire community.

About five years ago Father Cramer was attacked with paralysis, and since then has had several shocks, but had most of the time been able to enjoy the society of friends until in July last, when he was stricken down and rendered helpless. During these years of affliction he was brought very near his Savior, and often, when apparently on the margin of the dark river, would shout in ecstasy: "Glory to God in the highest". At other times he would sing" "And let this feeble body fail, And let it faint and die; My soul shall quit this mournful vale, And soar to worlds on high; Shall join the disembodied saints, And find its long-sought rest, That only bliss for which it pants, In the Redeemer's breast."

Thus passed away an aged saint. Truly, "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is."
