Ezra Branin 1788-1876
Died- At the residence of Benjamin Snode, son-in-law, near Marlboro, Stark County, Ohio, on Friday, the 10th of April, Ezra Branin aged 87 years, 5 months, and 1 day.
The deceased was formerly a resident of Chester County, Pennsylvania. He moved to Ohio in 1824 and was one of the earliest settlers of Salem, Columbiana County; was always a firm and consistent member of the Society of Friends and at the division of the Society adhered to the Hieksite division. In the anti-slavery cause he was an earnest worker. He was beloved by all who knew him; and especially by his nieces, nephews and grandchildren was he a general favorite.
Until the day of his death, almost, he was able to walk about and retained his senses in full; recognizing his friends until the last moment. As he felt the last hour drawing near-that hour which he had long waited patiently yet hopefully for as a final release from earthly suffering- he exclaimed in thankfulness, "God is good".
The remains were interred in the graveyard adjoining the little white meeting house (Friends) near Limaville, where he had for years past been sitting at the head of the meeting.
