David Whitford, in the 84th year of his age. For sixty years he has been a member of the Baptist Church and for nearly thirty years has had the pastoral charge of the Baptist Church on Swift Creek. He was an affectionate husband, tender father, a kind neighbor and constant Christian; and his loss will be deplored by a large family and extensive circle of friends, who will long cherish the rembrance of his exalted piety and useful life. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord for they rest from their labor and their works so follow them."1,2
