American Baptist Register of 1852 Obituaries

Today I am beginning with alphabet letter D:
Darrow, Francis, for many years Pastor of the First Waterford Baptist church, Vt., died aged 71, on the 17th Oct., 1850. He was a useful and godly minister.
Davis, Richard G., was born in Kentucky, near Bowling Green. In early life he removed to Illinois, and was baptized into the fellowship of the Nine Mile church, by which he was licensed and ordained. He labored faithfully as an Evangelist, and died aged about 50 years [no exact date given].
Davis, Sylvester, died at the Sandwich Islands, Feb. 5, 1852, aged 43 years. He was born at Royalton ,Mass., but removed in early life to Oneida Co., N.Y. In 1830 he became a disciple of Christ, studied at Hamilton, became pastor of the church at Evans' Mills, N.Y., afterwards settled at Cassville, and in Feb., 1851, went to the Sandwich Islands, where he died in full hope of a glorious immortality.
Dodge, Daniel, died in Philadelphia, May 13, 1851, in 76th year of his age. For more than a half a century he served his Lord in the Christian Ministry in several States of the Union, with more than ordinary acceptance and success. He finished his earthly career triumphing in his Almighty Saviour. He was greatly beloved by the people of God-their universal testimony was, "He was an Israelite, indeed in whom there was no guile."
Duval, C., of Kentucky.
