Wm. Baskerville became a Christian thirty-two years ago, uniting with the Baptist church. Later, when located where there was no church of his denomination, he joined the Evangelical, and since residing at Carroll, was connected with the M.E. church, seeking to live a God fearing life and fervently joining in divine worship. His declining days were spent in the peaceful anticipation of the call to a happier life with Him, he sought to serve faithfully during a long life well spent.
