THE CHRISTIAN INTELLINGENCER, August 1, 1828
In Boston, by Rev. Dean, Mr. Aldophus M. Cheney to Miss Laurinda Allen. Mr.
John C. Scobie to Miss Jane Robinson.
In Lewiston on the 16th last. Mrs. Martha Thompson, consort of Colonel Joel
Thompson, aged 68 years.
She ever maintained a fair and irreproachable character. She was an affectionate
wife, a tender mother, and a faithful friend. Her loss is truly great, and will long be
felt by a large circle of friends to whom she was endeared by the strong ties of
friendship. Though the evidences she sustained, of her interest in the Savior were
not so luminous as were desirable, being modest and diffident with regard to her
own exercises of mind, yet for a number of years anterior to her death, she manifested
a sacred regard to religion and gave good evidence to others, that she was a woman
of experimental and practical piety. (Comm.)
