April 10 1827

KERR. On Thursday last, MRS. KERR, wife of MR. JOSIAS KERR, merchant, of this town [Strabane] - Posthumous eulogiums have been so often the vehicles of the personal partialities of the writer of them, that readers are sometimes disposed to pass them over, very cursorily, as the effusions of biased friendship, perhaps of purchased praise. But the meek and modest individual, whose death is above announced, stands in no need of laboured panegyric, to sound her merits; her life was blameless, as her habits were unassuming; and she carried with her to the grave the unfeigned regrets of all who had an opportunity of cultivating an intimacy with her. The private virtues as they endeared her to her friends, so (actuated by her lively faith) they could not fail to secure the approbation of her God, and this conviction must greatly avail to alleviate the heavy affliction of a fond and tender husband, and affectionate family, who now lament their loss in tears of bitterness and woe

She has not left behind her, a more tender and affectionate mother, a more loving wife, or a steady friend. She never injured mortal in thought, word, or deed, nor ever did but she would be done by.

April 1 1828

HUGHES. On the 27th instant, MISS ANNE JANE HUGHES, eldest daughter of MR. HUGHES, of this town [Strabane]. As far as the character of a child of her years may be said to be developed, we have seldom witnessed such amiability of disposition. That parents should feel and deplore such a loss is natural; but the deep distress of her youthful acquaintances, who followed her remains with tears to the grave, gave ample testimony that she had excited interest in a much wider field

GWYNNE. After a short illness, on Thursday last, ROBERT VALENTINE GWYNNE, second son of MR. RICHARD GWYNNE, of this town [Strabane], at the early age of nine years. - “In the morning it is green and groweth up: but in the evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered.”

Seldom have we witnessed lowered into the narrow house a child more generally or deservedly regretted - as was fully testified by the number of his companions and others who accompanied his remains to the grave. This reminds us of the awful truth, that “in the midst of life we are in death”, and that in this world our days are as grass and of short duration. We know not the day nor the hour when the withering grasp of death may seize upon us - when the thread of life may be torn asunder, nor when that voice will call upon us to come and give an account of the deeds done in the body: - for “man cometh up as a flower, and is cut down; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and continueth not.”

Pause here and think: a monitory rhyme

Demands one moment of thy fleeting time

Consult life’s silent clock, thy bounding vein;

Seems it to say - ‘Health here has long to reign?

Hast thou the vigour of thy youth? An eye

That beams delight? a heart untaught to sigh?

Yet fear. - Youth of times, healthful and at ease,

Anticipates a day it never sees;

And many a tomb, like Hamilton’s, aloud

Exclaims - ‘Prepare thee for an early shroud’.

July 15 1828

We are sorry to state, that a young man of the name of JAMES SIMMISON, from Edymore, near this town [Strabane], went into the river at Derry to bathe, on Wednesday last, and not being a swimmer, he was carried away by the tide and drowned. The parents of the young man were in Derry waiting for the sailing of a vessel for America, in which he was to accompany them; what must have been their feelings, when the vessel sailed next day with them, leaving their son still in the river.

He was a young man of good character, and much respected by those who knew him

To compress much in little, he was truly the Christian, the Scholar, and the Gentleman

HUGHES. At his father’s house in this town [Strabane], on the 1st instant, after a lingering illness, which he bore with Christian resignation, ROBERT, eldest son of MR. SAMUEL HUGHES, merchant, aged 21 years. To sum up his many virtues in a few words, suffice it to say, that he was a most dutiful son, an affectionate brother, a warm hearted and steady friend, and a kind benefactor to the poor ---

His disconsolate parents are much consoled with the hope, that as he lived a life of faith on his Redeemer he is now enjoying that “rest which remaineth for the people of God.’ The very numerous assemblage of persons of all ranks, who accompanied his remains to the grave, plainly evinced the high esteem in which this much lamented youth was held

February 15 1831

COWAN. In the humbler walks of life, alike unknowing and unknown are frequently found the humble followers of a lowly master, the disciples of him who was despised and rejected of men. In the life of MR. CHRISTOPHER COWAN of this town [Strabane], who deceased on Tuesday the 8th instant the principal graces that adorn the christian were strikingly exemplified; the most prominent feature of his character was that which the Redeemer appointed to be the distinguishing badge of his disciples, love, and as he advanced in the divine life, in years and in experience, he proportionably advanced in humility. For the greater part of his life he was a leader in the Methodist Society, and in this capacity his manner of advising, reproving, exhorting, or comforting, was eminently calculated to produce the desired end; where many failed he was successful in compelling the conscience of the person reproved, to aid the effect of admonition. Those who knew him intimately testify, that “his conversation was in heaven”; he delighted in private prayer, and when time and place were not favourable to retirement, his mind was evidently occupied with devout aspirations. That cheerfulness which is the concomitant of a mind at ease was constantly visible in his countenance; his long severe affliction produced no moroseness, irascibility, or peevishment; he could still “rejoice with them that rejoice” as when in health and spirits, he was always ready to “weep with them that weep.” As his life did “adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things” we have no hesitation in stating, that he for many years professed the enjoyment of sanctification, thus affording an additional witness to the sublime truths of the glorious Gospel: and as he “held fast whereunto he had attained” there is, thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift, no room for doubt, that he has laid hold on eternal life. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints;” in his death the Church militant has sustained a loss, let it be the prayer of all who love Zion, that in his stead may be raised many such living witnesses of the faithfulness of God, and the realities of Scriptural religion

February 15 1831

WATSON. On the 14th instant, after a tedious illness which she bore with Christian patience and resignation, to the will of Heaven, having received all the comforts religion could afford, MRS. JOHN WATSON, of this town [Strabane] ---- If hospitality, if benevolence of heart, and charity to the poor, command the tribute of a tear, her death will be sincerely regretted, not only by her family, but also by the distressed of every class, who were ever the special objects of her charitable attention

February 22 1831

July 12 1831

LENEY. We are sorry at having to announce the death of MR. ALEXANDER LENEY, nephew to DOCTOR LENEY of this town [Strabane]. His long residence in Strabane had made him well known to its community, and was the means of raising for him a large circle of warmly attached friends. For the last five years he resided in Georgestown, Demerara, where as a Chemist and Druggist he had a fair prospect of realising a fortune, had he not fallen a victim to the ravages of that climate on the 20th of May last and in the 31st year of his age

July 19 1831

QUIN. At his Father’s residence, Douglas Bridge [near Strabane], on the 9th instant, in the 20th year of his age, MR. DAVID QUIN, JUN. In his general character were combined a variety of virtues. He was kind and generous in his disposition; amiable and unassuming in his manners, and his premature death will long be remembered by an affectionate father, an only brother, and a numerous circle of acquaintances

July 26 1831

CONWAY. On the 25th instant MR. DENIS CONWAY of this town [Strabane], aged 84. He bore his lingering illness with all that Christian fortitude and patience which, in the truly contrite and humble penitent, is so acceptable to God. He was a kind husband and an affectionate father. In short, his honest principle and charity of heart, will ever be remembered by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance

BOYD. On Wednesday last, after a short illness MR. JOHN BOYD, of this town [Strabane], merchant, who through life bore the character, and we may safely say, deservedly, of ‘an honest man,’ leaving a wife and three small children to deplore his loss. The general esteem in which he was held, by his neighbours and inhabitants generally was fully testified by their numerous attendance at the funeral to the grave yard at Leck[patrick]

December 11 1832

BROWN. On the morning of Wednesday last, after an illness of about ten days, MR. ROBERT BROWN, of this town [Strabane], grocer, at the age of 64.

Seldom, indeed, has it fallen to our lot, to record the death of an individual so generally and deservedly regretted as Mr Brown. A residence of upwards of thirty years in Strabane had given to its inhabitants ample means of estimating his character. To represent him merely as a truly honest man, a kind and obliging neighbour, a safe, social, and intelligent companion, would only be doing that which is admitted by all who knew him. But, superadded to these qualities, he possessed a mind strongly imbued with the highest principles of honour and independence, and ever treated with their merited contempt, those fawning and time-serving dispositions, so much employed in the present day, in the acquisition of wealth. He, not withstanding, realised a considerable fortune, which, with his unsullied character, has descended to his immediate relatives, in this neighbourhood. Mr Brown’s piety was of the most unaffected description, and being of the Presbyterian Church, was scrupulously attentive to her ordinances and discipline. In support of our charitable institutions, he always gave a willing contribution; and no man ever felt greater pleasure in administering assistance to objects of virtuous poverty. During his last illness, he evidenced much genuine piety, making the merits and intercession of the Saviour his entire ground of hope --- he suffered little or no pain throughout, and closed his mortal existence without a struggle - thereby forcing the application of the text, “Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.”

December 26 1832

DEATH OF THE REV. STEWART HAMILTON

HAMILTON. Seldom indeed has it fallen to our lot to record with more heartfelt sorrow and regret, the death of an individual, than that of the REV. STEWART HAMILTON. This amiable character closed his earthly scene on the morning of Thursday last. On Wednesday night, at his usual hour, he retired to rest, in perfect health, and melancholy to relate, was found next morning, “wrapped in all the darkness of death!” and without the slightest appearance of having had a struggle in dissolution --- thus proclaiming to all in language not to be forgotten - “Be still, and know that I am God;” and that, “in the midst of life, we are in death;” that “man cometh up as a flower, and is cut down - he fleeth, as it were a shadow, and continueth not, even in one stay,” and “seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass.” To do but common justice to the character of him who is now the “tenant of the narrow house,” would be a task, which we would only fail in completing. He was always found to possess those principles of good feeling to his fellow-man which endeared him to all; and fully showed through life, that he forgot not the mandate of his Redeemer, “to love thy neighbour as thyself.” To the charitable institutions of the country, he proved his sincerity in God’s work by constant contribution. In his capacity, as a Christian Minister, he has laid an example to those who may come after him, by his personal piety and good works, visiting the afflicted and the dying, and like John, unceasing in his exertions when in attendance on the sick bed, in pointing out the sinner’s hope, the rock of salvation, “the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the World.” And here we would refer to his unwearied exertions during the late pestilence. To every house, to every hut, where it raged, he became a constant visitor, and “studied to shew himself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed.” For a period of upwards of twenty-eight years in this parish, he proved himself the “widow’s stay and orphan’s shield.” His private donations to the poor were considerable; and he always studied to instil into the minds of youth that knowledge “which maketh wise unto salvation.” At the age of 62 years, did our Reverend Pastor complete the days appointed to him here below, and his death marked by signs of having called upon his God, “Let me live the life of the righteous, and let my latter end be like his.” ---

To say what we could to do justice to his character and conduct through life, becomes a duty we cannot fulfil; but will conclude in the words of Divine Revelation:

Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord: even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labours and their works do follow them.”

January 22 1833

June 11 1833

HAMILTON. On Thursday last, MISS HAMILTON, daughter of JAMES HAMILTON, ESQ., of this town [Strabane], aged 18 years. In few instances have the power of divine grace been more strikingly exemplified than in that of the amiable young lady whose death we now record. Long suffering under an illness peculiarly severe, she endured the chastisement of an Almighty Father’s hand without a murmur - in her, patience had its perfect work, her soul becoming hourly more conformed to the Redeemer’s image as she approached the confines of the eternal world. Having her confidence placed on the Rock of Ages she meekly resigned her soul to him who gave it, leaving to her mourning relatives, “a sure and certain hope” that she has been taken from the pains and conflicts of this transitory scene to the enjoyment of an exceeding - an eternal weight of glory, in her Father’s house above.

Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee,

Though sorrow and darkness encompass the tomb,

For thy Saviour hath passed through its portals before thee,

And the light of his love was thy guide through the gloom

The late Mr Hendrick was a kind Husband and an indulgent Parent, a warm friend, and a humane man; whilst the oppressive law was in force of fining Townlands 50 or 25 for each Still, Head, and Worm, found on them, by which the innocent suffered for the guilty, and the Officers of the Revenue in general realised large sums of money, he was never known to exceed his duty, or make money by oppressing the people, and although in his youth, the Ministers of his Church to often neglected to impress upon their hearers the “one thing needful” namely, Salvation through Christ alone, yet we trust all his sins have been washed away by the atoning blood of his Saviour. And that he will be found among the number of them to whom the Redeemer when he cometh shall say “Well done, good and faithful servant enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” ---------- From a Correspondent

CREIGHTON. In Dublin, on Tuesday last, after an illness of only three days, occasioned by a brain fever, MR. MICHAEL CREIGHTON, aged 28 years, brother to MR. CREIGHTON, JUN., of this town [Strabane]. By his death, society has sustained a general loss; his abilities, as professor of writing, general accountant, &c. being universally appreciated, while, at the same time, a breach has been made in the circle of his acquaintance, which will not be easily filled.

His relations, too, have felt a severe wound, which time alone can heal; but, if the sympathy of others, and the high estimation in which their departed friend was held, can alleviate their grief, they have much consolation for their sorrow...

Pent in the narrow clay cold house,

In hopes his ashes wait!

His dissolution took place on Sunday evening last, about six o’clock, after an illness of only a few days which he bore with the most perfect resignation to the will of his Divine Master. Delicacy forbids that we should say anything of the many amiable dispositions by which Mr Carroll was characterised; nor indeed is it necessary that we should do so, in a community with which he was identified from his birth, and in which he spent a life of nearly of 50 years with the most unimas peachable integrity

Cut off in the prime of life, and midst of usefulness, the removal of Mr Orr will long be felt in Strabane --

It is our melancholy duty to announce the death of JAMES HAMILTON, ESQ., which occurred at his residence in this town [Strabane], on Friday last, after a protracted illness, in the 67th year of his age.
