Bainbridge, Thomas (d1909)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by Jesse Wilson 

Thomas Bainbridge was for many years a member of the society at Dent. A service, weekday or Sunday, was incomplete without him. Always present at the class meeting, his testimony was rich and helpful in its simplicity. His speech, rugged as the mountains and about as strong, told of a heart rooted in abiding verities. His was a simple trust in Jesus. He knew Christ had come to seek and save the lost, and having experienced the bliss of a New Birth with all its relationships, found inexpressible joy therein. Too feeble to work, the last few months were brightened with an old age pension, for which he devoutly thanked the Giver of all good.

On December 8th, a guide was sent to show him the way to the other members of the “whole family in heaven and earth,” there to re-unite with old comrades who had preceded him to the City without temples. His widow, ripe with years, and finding pleasure in poring over the pages of a well-thumbed Bible waits

“Till the Master shall bid her come
To the glory of His presence,
The gladness of His home.”

I have not been able to identify Thomas in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
