Obituary of Moses Thurston, The New Hampshire Gazette, Apr. 29, 1800:

DIED] - At Hollis, N.H. April 6, Mr. Moses Thurston, aged 80. It is worthy of notice that he walked to meeting in usual health; and after meeting, he attended a conference, at which he appeared more than usually animated. It fell to his lot to make the concluding prayer, in which exercise he was exceedingly fervent, and until the last sentence which he uttered, he spoke with more than usual vigor, when his voice failed, and he would have fallen, had he not have been supported by a friend - and immediately expired without a groan or firaggle. The scene was truly solemn and very affecting to beholders, who might well have exclaimed, "mark the perfect man, and behold the upright for the end of that man is peace." His funeral was attended on the Wednesday following, by a numerous concourse of people, and a well adapted Sermon was delivered on the occasion, by the Rev. Mr. Smith, from Genesis, v. 24.
