THE HENRY REPUBLIC, HENRY, ILLINOIS, APRIL 26, 1877

We publish below an obituary notice of Elder Amos Harvey, brother-in-law of James Ramage of Magnolia. Elder Harvey formerly lived in Putnam county, and is well known by the Friends of Clear Creek. His death took place in Oregon, where he has resided for some years.

Elder Harvey, the subject of this obituary was borne March 24, 1789['99?], in Washington county, Penn. By request of his family, I write a brief sketch of his long, eventful and useful life. Bro. Harvey was born in the Quaker church, and zealously and faithfully taught the doctrine and practice of that earnest, honest and devoted people, for whom he ever entertained the kindest regard as long as he retained the vigor of his mind. … From a child he was a faithful student of the Bible. When a young man he happened to hear Elder A. Campbell preach. The beauty and richness of his language greatly interested Bro. H. [text missing] About this time he tenderly loved Miss Jane Ramage. She had won his heart, he offered her his hand and she became his wife contrary to the law of the Quaker church, for which he was expelled. [text missing] For several years before his death, his physical and mental powers began rapidly to fail, and for near two years before his death he was but little more than a child, which was a great affliction to him, for he seem to realize his imbecility in mind as well as body [text missing] A paralytic stroke finally closed the struggle and his tired spirit returned to God who gave it. And thus ended his long and eventful life, who was duly beloved for his stirling, integrity and christian piety.
