Having graduated in medicine in 1867, he located in Virginia and soon after he married Miss Virginia Lee Millan, of Fairfax County, Va. In 1870 he settled in Pittsylvania Coun ty, Va., where for eleven years he practiced medicine, and where he also gave the land and built on it a Pres byterian church. Seven children were born to him and his devoted wife, who with three children. Professor Ashton W. McVVhorter, now the act ing president of Hampden-Sidney Col lege; Miss Jennie M. McWhorter and Mrs. Hugh J. Maclntyre, of Thomas ville, Ga., still survives him. Some men achieve greatness by their talent for money making, others become famous by reason of scholar ship or skill in waging war. The greatest man is he who rears a goodly famliy. Dr. McWhorter was great, when measured by this test. The writer was his pastor for seven years and knew his children from youth up, and he now gladly bears witness to their Christian training, their superior intellectual gifts, and their consistent Christian life. For sake of its educational advan tages Dr. McWhorter, in 1883, moved to Salem, Va., where for thirteen years he practiced his profession. Later he returned to the old homestead at Bachelor's Retreat, S. C., and remain ed there with his aged mother until her death. Finally he came back to Virginia to spend his last years, taking up his residence this time at Hamp den-Sidney, Va., where his son. Dr. Ashton McWhorter, was a member of the faculty of Hampden-Sidney Col lege. In March, 1915, he had a * stroke of paralysis and another in August, 1916. These were the precursors of the end, which came a year later, October 6, 1917. The last two years of his life were marked by much suf fering, which he bore with great cour age. . From the beginning of his married life he erected the family altar in his home and morning and evening for nearly fifty years he led his family regularly to the throne of heavenly grace. Dr. McWhorter was a gentleman of the old school, a type rapidly passing away. His courtesy was innate and spontaneous. His piety was of the unobtrusive kind, showing itself in deeds rather than in words. He lived beyond man's three score years and ten and now, after "life's fit ful fever," he is at rest. MRS. MARGARET JONES. Resolutions of the Woman's Aux iliary of Concord church, Brunswick, County, Va., in loving memory of Mrs. Margaret Jones. Whereas, it has pleased God in His wise providence to call home his aged servant, the senior member of Concord church and the president of th? Woman's Auxiliary, we desire to place on record: I.
