After three years of extreme suffering David W. McIntyre died July 8th, aged 32 years and 11 months. In February, 1878 he joined the United Brethren Church at Mt. Zion under the labors of Rev. J. H. Anderson, since which time he has lived a consistent Christian. Some time after joining the church, he and his brother, William, were baptized they both going down into the stream together and received the solemn ordinance at the hand of Mr. Anderson who with both of the boys have gone to join the saved host beyond, William having proceeded David six years. Through all of his affliction he was never known to murmur, believing that these afflictions work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. And when the last hour had come he called the family to him requesting each of them to meet him in heaven. Then tanking his father for his kindness to him said “Don’t weep for me, I am going home,” bade them farewell and passed to the beyond. The grief stricken family has the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement. The funeral services were held in Wesley Chapel on Thursday at 10 o’clock conducted by Rev. A. M. Snyder, of the U. B. Church, assisted by Rev. E. R. Johnson, of the M. E. Church. Interment at the Wesley Cemetery.

The community was grieved to learn of the death of David W. McIntire on Tuesday morning of last week. He had been growing worse for some weeks, yet his death was a shock to most of his friends. Until the last two or three days he had expressed a hope of recovering and living a life of service to his family for their kindness to him. The deceased was nearly 33 years of age and for twelve years had been a member of the U. B. Church and was a true and conscientious Christian, although his life was mostly one of suffering, having been a cripple from a white swelling, which developed all the patience and endurance of a true Christian. Many virtues and few faults were combined in his life. Such a life is truly noble since he sacrificed all pleasure and ambition without murmuring. God, who is just and all wise will surely reward such as they deserve. He has lain on his bed for nearly three years and despite the greatest efforts of medical skill failed to get better. The funeral occurred Thursday, Rev. A. M. Snyder conducting the service.
