BEERY. - Bro. Abraham G. Beery was born in Fairfield Co., Ohio, Oct. 11, 1817, and died at the residence of his son, Daniel Beery, in Branch Co., Mich., March 23d, 1895, aged 77 y., 5 m., 12 d. He was married to Sarah A. Keller in the year 1839, and shortly after both united with the Mennonite denomination, and both lived lives devoted to her principles until the end. Sister Beery was called to her reward on Aug. 10, 1883, of their 12 children (5 sons and 7 daughters) two sons and three daughters survive. There are also 26 grandchildren living and 6 dead, and 4 great grand children living and one dead. Bro. Beery moved into this community 30 years ago, and his life has been an open book among his neighbors. He was a consistent and conscientious Christian, exemplifying in his life the characteristics of true piety and humility. For the past five years he was severely afflicted with paralysis and was unable to go about or to attend church regularly, which was a severe trial to him for he loved the house of the Lord and delighted greatly in the services of the sanctuary. He has gone to his reward, and we mourn not as those who have no hope. His devotion was manifested by his strict observance of the principles he accepted and advocated. He was a constant and deeply interested reader of the HERALD OF TRUTH, beginning with the first copy and continuing until he was no longer able to do so. The remains were laid to rest on the 25th of March in the Pleasant Hill graveyard. Funeral sermon by J. S. Lehman to a large concourse of sympathizing friends from Micah 2: 10.

"How blest is our father, bereft
Of all that can burden his mind;
How easy the soul that has left
This wearisome body behind.

This languishing head is at rest;
Its thinking and aching are o'er;
This quiet, immovable breast,
Is heaved by affliction no more."
