She knew much of the sufferings incident to our fathers and their families during the "times that tried men's souls." Neither was she ignorant of the privations and self-denials of the early settler's life. She believed herself to have been a subject of renewing grace previous to her sixty-fifth year. She was one of the first to unite herself with the First Baptist Church in this town, of which she continued an esteemed and faithful member until her death. During the last years of her life, she was afflicted with total blindness, yet an unseen hand profusely ministered grace to bear her infirmities. She was twice married; her first husband was drowned soon after her marriage. She came down to us from a former generation, was known only to be venerated and loved.

Blue Hill, May 21, 1863, Mr. Sawyer: I send you herewith a document in relation to the death and burial of my brother. You will see that papers in this state are requested to publish it. It may be proper for me to state that Dr. Rufus GILPATRICK was born in East Trenton, Maine, graduated as a medical student at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, settled as a physician in New Madison, Ohio, whence, after a successful practice of some 23 years, he removed to Kansas in 1855. Yours truly -- J. Gilpatrick

Document forwarded is a record of the doings of the Masonic Fraternity belonging to the 8th and 9th Military Districts in Missouri, at a meeting held at Ft. Gibson on the 27th of April, in relation to the death of Dr. Gilpatrick, from the statement pupblished as furnished to the meeting:

The deceased was most foully murdered by Rebels while exposing his life to protect the ladies of a Rebel officer's household at Webster's Falls, Cherokee Nation, after said place had been captured by the Union troops to which he was attached. The resolutions testify to the faithfulness, kindness and self-sacrificing spirit of the deceased, and are signed by the officers of that command. He was killed the 25th of April.

At the call of the President in 1862 for 9 monthsmen, he volunteered, went down to New Orleans where we trust he gave his heart to God, thence thru all the meanderings of his military up and down the Mississippi. Before Port Hudson he contracted that terrible disease which carried him off. When his regiment started for home, he was sick, but he kept with it until it reached Augusta where he was able to proceed no farther. His father went and brought him home. On his way, he said, "Father, if ever I get well, and my country calls for me again, I shall go. I feel it to be my duty." God called him before his country did. After his return, he talked much about religion. It was his solace in pain, for he was a great sufferer, but patient. Not a murmur escaped his lisps. His end was peace.

Although she never made an open profession of religion, yet she had cherished a hope of salvation for many years and once was received by an evangelical church as a suitable candidate for baptism. She always manifested her attachments to the cause of truth and holiness by her attendance at the public worship of God and her interest in the sick and afflicted around her and seemed to regret in her last hour that she had neglected to unite with some Christian church, but now it was too late. But from the fruits of religion uniformly developed in her life and conversation, we cannot doubt that she is now happy with her God in heaven.

Her last sickness was short, about one week only, and although she had passed through many trying scenes by reason of physical suffering during her stay on earth, her probation is now done, her sufferings are now over, and we trust she is happy in heaven. She has left a numerous circle of friends and relatives to lament her sudden departure. Her afflicted husband especially feels sensibly her loss.

Ellsworth, Apr. 23, Freddie G., only son of Thomas HUNNEWELL, age 3 years, 23 days.

Gouldsboro, Apr. 27, Mr. George W. SPURLING, age 27 years.

Ellsworth, Apr. 26, at the residence of her son, Capt. Benjamin Lord, Mrs. Mary LORD, widow of the late Benjamin Lord, of Surry, age 80 years. Experienced religion at the age of 15 years and was subsequently baptized by Rev. John Tripp, then as an itinerant preacher of Surry and its vicinity. At the age of 29 years, she was married to Benjamin Lord, then deacon, who was soon ordained as pastor of the newly organized church in Surry and Ellsworth. Excepting 3 years with the church in Columbia and Attison, Elder Lord's labors were confined to the towns of Surry and Ellsworth, making in all a ministry of about 48 years. During all this time it may truly be said Mrs. Lord was always found a devoted wife and sharer in all toils and trials which seem to have been the lot of ministers at the time. Being the mother of eleven children, and her husband being a great part of the time away from his family, it will readily be seen that an amount of care and responsibility at times fell on her with almost crushing weight. It will be remembered that ministers at times were supposed by most persons to be miraculously provided for, and consequently Mrs. Lord enjoyed all the blessings that poverty could bestow. Yet she was always found the devoted wife, the kind and affectionate mother, and friend and consistent Christian. Her last illness, which was short and distressing, found her ready for the summons. She was calm and composed, knowing in Whom she had believed, and that a crown of righteousness awaited her in that land where the weary are at rest. By this bereavement, 5 sons and 2 daughters, a large circle of friends and the church of which she was a member are left to mourn the departure of one near and dear to them by many ties and associations long to be remembered.

Surry, Apr. 13, Emiline P. PATTEN, age 18 years, youngest daughter of Ambrose and Sarah Patten. In this event the family is bereaved of a most amiable and much beloved daughter and sister. The Sabboth School was bereaved of one who was an example of goodness. Her sickness was lingering, but was endured to the last without a murmur or even one expression of impatience.

Trenton, Apr. 6, Capt Daniel FOSTER, 72 years. In the death of Capt. Foster the family has met with a great loss, being a very kind and agreeable husband, indulgent and kind-hearted father, always making it his chief delight to render his house pleasant and happy. He was very strongly attached to his family and enjoyed life most when he could most add to their happiness and comfort. When 49 years of age, he made a public profession of religion and was united with the Baptist Church in Trenton, in which he maintained his straightforward and consistent Christian course to the end of life's journey. In his last sickness, which was severe, he was very patient and his sufferings were of Christian fortitude and without a murmur, fully relying on the merits of his Savior of whom he derived his comfort and support. His faculties remained to the last and without a struggle or a groan, he quietly and peacefully fell asleep and passed to a spiritual world.

She has been a great sufferer for 3 months but bore it patiently. She was calm and resolved even in death and longed for her Maker to call her home to meet her husband who had gone before her. She leaves a large circle of relatives and friends who deeply mourn her absence but we trust our loss is her gain.
