Crawford Statesman  April 01, 1841


On Thursday last, March 25th, Mrs. ABBY BARLOW, wife of Hon. Stephen Barlow, aged 58.  It would ill accord with the character and feelings of our departed friend to make a public display of her retiring and quiet virtues, or of  her humble and submissive but sustained and peaceful feelings in the closing scenes of life. But this event has sundered a link in our social relations; and we should do injustice to our own grieved feelings were we not to say that her memory is endeared to many among us by her cheerful and affiable manners, the affectionateness of her disposition, and the kindness and sincerity of her friendship. Her departure was such as was to have been anticipated from her life -- unostentatious and peaceful. In the submissive and trusting faith in which she had lived, she reposed in the encircling arms of her Heavenly Father and gently fell asleep. As a few friends gathered around the dying bed, we were reminded of the beautiful words:

I heard a voice from Heaven
Say, "Blessed is the doom
Of those whose trust is in the Lord,
When sinking to the tomb."
The Holy Spirit spake--
And I the words repeat--
"Blessed are they -- for, after toil,
To mortals, rest is sweet."
