American Baptist Register of 1852 Obituaries
Now it is time to post alphabet letter of "G":
Gareelon, James, was ordained pastor of the church in Lewiston, Me., in 1841. Died in 1851.
George, Charles, Deacon, born in Montgomery Co., Pa. For many years he was connected with the First Church Philadelphia, and was esteemed for his prudent and judicious counsels, and beloved for his meek, quiet, and peace-making spirit. He died, suddenly, in Philadelphia, March 25th, 1852, in the 62d year of his age.
Gibson, Sylvanus, was born in Wilkes Co., Ga., Nov. 1783. He preached eighteen years in Georgia, then removed to Alabama, where, after a very useful ministry, during which he is said to have baptized over one thousand persons, he died in Lawrence Co., aged 68 years, on the 25th of July, 1851.
Glover, Samuel, died suddenly at his residence in Cambridge, Mass., in Jan. 1852, in the 68th year of his age. He had been a sound and useful minister of the gospel, but had retired from the active duties of the ministry several years ago.
Graves, Hiram A., died in Bristol., R.I., at the residence of his father, Rev. Joseph M. Graves, on Sunday, Nov. 3, 1850, aged 37 years. Mr. Graves was graduated at Middlebury College, Vt., was first settled in the ministry at West Springfield, Mass., and afterwards at Lynn in the same state. In both these places, and especially in the first , he acquired an unusual influence with his people and endeared himself to them by his amiable temper and kind spirit. The same traits rendered him a general favorite when in 1841, having reassigned his pastoral charge, he became Editor of the "Christian Reflector," published in Boston. He was eminently successful as an Editor, until a pulmonary disease compelled him in 1846 to remove to the West Indies. Though his life was doubtless prolonged by this removal, he gradually declined, and in the summer of 1850 he returned to the United States to die. His last days were days of cheerful resignation and bright hopes. During his protracted illness he had accustomed himself to think much of heaven; and as death drew near, he welcomed the hour of his departure, saying, "It is better, far better to depart and be with Christ."
Griffith, L., of Ohio, died September 17th 1851. He was for many years a devoted minister.
Guy, Stephen, North Carolina.
