George Brown

Died 1838

Died, Feb. 19,1838,at Reeth, in Middleham circuit, George Brown.  For nine years he was a member of the P. M. society, and gave proof that his peace was made with God.  Feb. 6, at his request, a prayer meeting was held in his house; and though confined to his bed by a stroke of palsy, he prayed fervently, wept, and shouted “Glory.”  On Sunday morning, Feb. 18,he prayed a long time, and cried out, “Come, Lord Jesus, and Come quickly.  Glory be to God.”  Feb. 19, he lifted up his hand in token of victory; and he departed about half-past nine that morning.
