Layton Crouse was born Aug. 23, 1827, and passed to a higher life June 29, 1890, from the same farm on which he was born in Center township, Greene Co., Pa., and his remains were interred in the family burying ground on the farm, July 1st, 1890, where rests the remains of his father, mother, children and other relatives. He was married Jan. 5, 1860 to Miss Catharine Thomas, daughter of Eli Thomas deceased, and sister of Isaac and James Thomas, Mrs. Solomon Eagon and Mrs. Maria Crago. His worth was manifested by the very large and respectable concourse of relatives, friends and neighbors who followed his remains to their last resting place. He leaves a widow and five children to mourn their irreparable loss. No words of mine can fully portray his real worth. He was honest and true in all his relations in life and loved by all who appreciate real worth in thier fellows.
He had a good mind which was well stored with useful knowledge. He was hospitable and obliging and and ardent love of truth, honor and justice. Such men as he we can illy spare; the world needs more of them before we can ever hope to realize the good time which is to come. His magnetism attracted to him men of mind and principle. To say he had no enemies would be to say what I believe of no man. An incarnate God could not live in this world without having them, neither can a just or righteous man. A eulogy on his real worth would be greater than that of many so called great generals and statesmen. While their honors came from the amount of carnage , woe and oppression that followed their acts in the field, his would be on the good done his fellows, his example of good citizenship and the many untold kindnesses rendered to those whose financial standing were inferior to his own.
Though he was a professed christian, we believe professions are vile without the higher principle of truth, honor, and justice which was the constant accompaniment of his every day life.
