time of the surrender. He was re
garded as one of the best soldiers of
his command.
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. The high esteem in which she
was held and the deep gratitude we
feel to God for sparing her useful life
so long to her church, to her family
and to the whole community. Truly
she was "as a mother in Israel."
II. We would commend her Chris
tian character and work to others for
their emulation, her witnessing for
Christ, her faithfulness to every duty,
her devotion to all public and private
means of grace, "To fear and keep
His commandments" being the key
note of her life.
III. That a copy,of these resolutions
be placed upon the records of the Aux
iliary, sent to the family and be sent
