Tho death Angel has entered our
community and claimed us his victem,
our beloved brother and long Intimate,
friend, John Webster Clark, who was
born in Spartanburg county on Feb
ruary 16lb, 1811.1, and died at his home
in I.aureus county on Maroh 2nd, 1002.
Age sixty-nine years
Before the war he was a Captain in
the Stato Militia. Ho promptly vol
unteered to defend the rights of his
State In tho war between tho States,
and was woundod in the seven days
battlo at Richmond; this wound
brought on typhoid fever from whieh
he came near dying at tho time. He
often suU'ered from the bullet which
found lodgment in bis body, and which
he carried to the grave.
He was for many years a devoted
member of L?ngsten Baptist Church.
He served tho church for many years
as Olork, which office ho held at bis
death; unusually liberal in his contri
butions, responding to every call, often
f;olng beyond his means?but It was
ndeed a joy for him to give. He was
a model in punctuality, always at
every service both Saturday and Sun
day if he was not providoutially hin
dered. He was exemplary in his
fidelity to tho word of God, never let
ting a day pass without reading his
Bible; he loved to read; he had accu
mulated a good library, and his center
table we9 always loaded with papers
and magazines, both secu'ar and relig
He was an affectionate husband, a
devoted father, a good provider, full of
energy, often going beyond his
strength. Hono&t and upright, and a
lover of his fellow man. But God said
to him: "It is enough you have fought
a good Hight, you have Onished your
course, you havo kept tho faith, como
up higher and receive a crown of right
eousness, prepared for all them that
love the appearing of the Lord Josus."
So our beloved bro'her has gono where
the wicked coaso from troubling and
the care-worn and the weary aro for
ever at rest.
"Life's raco well run,
Life's work well done,
Life's crown well won."
