KYLE, Thomas, Obituary

Thomas Kyle was born in Anchnacloy, Ireland, March 12, 1811, and died in his home at Candor, NY, Jan. 11, 1894. Of the five in his father's family he was the last survivor. He came to this country when about twenty one years of age. When he landed in New York he had but fifty cents. By industry and economy he accumulated a good property. Over forty years ago he experienced religion and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He united with the church at Canfield Corners, of what is now known as Lounsbury appointment, a little below Owego, NY Upon moving to Flemingville, NY, he became a member there; afterward he removed to Candor, where he retained his membership until death. He was called upon to fill a number of the offices in the church, and was a steward at the time of his departure. He was faithful in attending the house of god, and was seldom absent from class meeting. He had been in poor health for a few days, but was accounted better. On the morning he died he arose from breakfast and went into the sitting room. The Bible was brought and placed upon his knee. As he was about to read he fell from his chair, and in a short time was no more. [Northern Christian Advocate, (Syracuse, NY), April 11, 1894]

LEWIS, Hiram B., Obituary

Hiram B. Lewis was born in Petersbourgh, Rensselaer county, N.Y., April 10, 1808,and died in Jasper, N.Y., Nov. 26, 1894, aged eighty-six years. He moved from Pennsylvania to Jasper about thirty years ago. He was married to Miss Elmina Bowman June 4, 1826. Four children were born to them, three of whom remain to mourn the departure of their loved and loving father, viz. George S. Lewis and Mrs. E. V. Baker, of Brookfield, Pa., and Mrs. W. W. Hunter, of Jasper. The wife and mother went into the other life Nov. 22, 1884. Brother Lewis joined the Methodist Episcopal Church of Jasper about seventeen years ago, when the Rev. J. R. Cathin was pastor in charge. Of later years he was debarred from the privilege of public worship on account of the infirmities of age, but retained his faith in God and waited patiently the coming of his Master. We believe that a good man has gone to his reward and that he is now blessed in the presence of God. JOHN WOOTON. [Northern Christian Advocate, (Syracuse, NY), December 19, 1894; pg. 17]
