CHRISTIAN INTELLIGENCER, July 31, 1829
In Bath, Mr. Oliver Moses to Miss Lydia H., daughter of Charles Clapp, Esq.
In Hampden, Colonel Daniel Emery to Miss Almira Crosby, daughter of
General John Crosby,
In Concord, New Hampshire, Mr. Frederick C. Swaim (Swain?) formerly of
Nantucket, to Miss Ann D., Tuck, of Hopkington, N. H.
In Fairfield, on the 21st inst., Mrs. Maria Peaks, wife of Benjamin H. Peaks.
In Dover, on the 6th ins., Mathew H. Plumer, Esq., aged 28, after an illness
of thirteen days. he has left a wife, and a large circle of relatives and friends
to mourn his early end. A few months ago he was the picture of health, and
actively engaged in a large sphere of business and bid fair for long and useful
life; but alas!, he was cut down in the bloom of life to exchange a mortal for
a more immortal state. How consoling to the parents, brothers and sisters of the
deceased , that they do not mourn those who have no hope, but have a glorious
assurance that their son and brother has gone to meet his Redeemer, who called
himself the savior of the world. We consign his remains to the silent mansions
of the grave, there to rest till the last trumpets joyful sound-
"Shall all burst his chains, with sweet surprise,
And in his Savior's image rise!"
In Andover, Vermont, Mr. Eleazer Butterfield, aged 77. About thirty years
since, Mr. Butterfield united with the Baptist church; but receiving more
light from the gospel of his Redeemer, and being blessed with a more enlarged
faith, a faith embracing the whole family of man as the heirs of salvation and
immortal glory, he about two years afterwards requested a dismission (sic) from the
church This reasonable request was refused; and although no charge of immoral
or improper was brought against him, he was excommunicated for heresy. From
that time to the day of his departure, he continued firm in the faith; and it
forsook him not in the hour of death." "Blessed are the dead who die in the
Lord." Chris. Repository
