Obituary -- STEPHEN GAGE WOODARD and LUCY ELIZABETH WOODARD

The two faithful followers of the Redeemer whose names appear above passed away recently to the home of the blessed within a few weeks of each other, having lived together 54 years. Mr. Woodard was born in Sutton, N.H., in 1789, and his wife in Ellsworth, Me., in 1794. They were married in 1812 and immediately settled in Ellsworth, where they continued to reside until death, having lived together 54 years. Mr. Woodard was one of the first settlers of the town, and followed the occupation of house and ship carpenter. He is very highly estimated by his fellow townsmen and held successively the position of postmaster, selectman, and other offices of trust and usefulness among them. He was likewise an active member of the Ellsworth Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons. Out of a family of 14 children, 10 have survived him and his estimable helpmeet, four having died in infancy. They were both members of the Baptist Church, and for over 40 years have sat down to the communion table of our Lord side by side. During one period of his life, Mr. Woodard became possessed of considerable property and was somewhat extensively engaged in house and ship building as well as in general trade, but did not seem to consider "honesty the best policy," he was stripped of all he owned, and left encumbered with numerous debts. Instead of going through chancery to clear himself as he was strongly advised by several friends, he began life anew, as it were, and with nothing but his hands and his tools, paid every dollar of his indebtedness.

Sometime in February last, pulmonary difficulties of a serious nature developed themselves and caused considerable alarm to his friends. While watching at the bedside of her sick husband, Mrs. Woodard was herself attacked by heart complaint and congestion of the lungs, and it soon became evident that she was not long for earth. Her children were at once informed of her situation, and seven of them were able to reach her before her spirit departed. She was perfectly resigned to the will of God. Although oppressed for breath and using her voice with great difficulty, she talked considerably with her children, and with unvarying constancy attested the sufficiency of her Christian faith to strengthen and support the soul even while walking through the valley of the shadow of death. She preserved her faculties to the end, and her last words were, "All is well with me." She died on April 27, age 72 years, and was buried in the family graveyard of Mrs. Whitaker, a daughter.

Subsequent to his wife's death, Mr. Woodard seemed slightly to rally, and was well enough for several days to visit the spot where she was interred. In a few weeks, however, he grew worse and took to his bed, fully conscious that he would never leave it again alive. He was perfectly tranquil and peaceful. Notwith-standing his proximity to the grave, he took a lively interest in everything that was going on about him, and listened to the daily news with the utmost avidity. His spiritual vision seemed to have been opened, and he repeatedly affirmed that he saw beyond the vale and beheld the forms of those who had preceeded him to eternity, especially the spirit of his wife, who seemed to hover about him constantly and to be waiting for him to join her in the better land. Previous to entering his chamber for the last time, he bade farewell to everything about his house and then took leave of all his friends, made his will, and throughout the whole of this experience, so trying to others, was as composed as if engaged in the transaction of his ordinary business. His last words were, "I hope that all my children will stand on the same platform with me." His death occurred on the 23rd of June, age 77 years. His remains were deposited in the same spot by the side of his wife. United in life, in death they were not divided.

Eight years ago she professed Christ and became a member of the Congregational Church of which the undersigned is pastor. She was a devoted teacher in the Sabbath School and an efficient member of the choir, having charge of the instrument of music. She loved the prayer meeting and all the ordinance of the Gospel. I send this humble tribute to correct any incorrect impressions that may have been made by ambiguous indefinite statement that have been published. I have long been fully acquainted with Mrs. Wasson and can testify to the beauty and decision of her Christian life. [No signature for narrative.]
