In Piqua, on he 4th inst., Uri Fordyce, aged 71 years and 15 days.

The deceased was born n Greene Co., Penn., Feb. 18, 1805, and has long been a much respected resident of this City. He possessed [illegible] without ostentation. He had long been known in this County as a teacher, and many are the scholars, some of whom are grown to manhood and womenhood, who fondly cherish his memory, and who love to testify their appreciation of his worth. In the Church he will be missed. For more than a third of a century he had been a follower of Jesus. His knowledge of the Bible, his grasp of its doctrines, his personal appropriation of Christ as his Savior, and his devotional gift, made him both an ornament in the Church and a helper among his brethren. His faith in the finished work of Christ, during his sickness, was beautiful to witness. Death found him girded and ready. The advancing years had only confirmed the strength of his hold on Jesus, and demonstrated the reality and blessedness of Jesus' hold on him. Resting on the completed work of Christ and looking triumphantly into his future, he met his death with a peace as if he were going to sleep.

Miami Helmet, March 9, 1876
