FARLOW, Nathan, Paoli Republican (April 23, 1890) Death Notice
Nathan Farlow was born in Orange County, North Carolina May 20th, 1810.
His father, Joseph Farlow, with a company numbering about seventy
persons, removed to this county, landing at the "Half Moon Spring," on
Doll Braxtan's farm, May 2, 1811. Their first work was to build a
"stockade" or "Block House" as a means of defending themselves against
the murderous attacks of the savage. The most of the company were
Quakers and their main object in planting this little colony in the
then far west was to place their children where they might bring them
up free from the contaminating influences of human slavery. In a short
time a few of the members settled within the limits of Beech Grove
meeting, and as early as 1823 or 1824, Beech Grove meeting was
established and the subject of this brief memorial, a lad of 13 or 14
summers, was regularly taken to church twice each week and this
influence, together with the pious teaching of Godly parents at home,
was never forsaken or forgotten until his physical strength no longer
permitted him to attend the house of God.

was not only a faithful church member, but was a kind and obliging
neighbor. If one was in distress they always found him ready and
willing to relieve their wants. One who was heart broken and sad was
sure to find a sympathizing friend in him. If a neighbor was sick his
work never prevented him from visiting and doing all in his power to
alleviate their suffering. He once expressed himself to your
correspondent as believing his mission was to visit the sick, and no
man ever filled any mission more faithfully than did he his. One by one
he saw those of his original company falling until he was spared for
"some purpose," as he often expressed it. Often times as we looked upon
him in his place in the church, his locks white with the frost of
nearly four-score years, or listen to his feeble voice as he spoke a
word of encouragement to some "trembling child," we felt it our duty to
lisp a prayer to the All Wise God for sparing us the aged pilgrim and
The past winter he had been
feeble and an attack of the grippe was more that his shattered frame
could stand, and when the sun had sunk to rest on the evening of the
14th inst. [April 14, 1890], he passed calmly and quietly away and the
boatman ferried him over the cold and icy stream of death, landing him
on that shore where feebleness with age and aching of body are not
known. The family have the sympathy of the entire community. Submitted

gentleness to the last. He said, "I do not want to die, I want to stay
with you, if it is the Lord's will". But the efforts of all kind
friends, father, mother, brothers and sisters could do availed nothing
and he willingly submitted to His will quietly as if falling asleep. He
was delirious for two days and nights, but was conscious at times,
sufficiently recovering consciousness a short time before he died to
call the names of the family and said, "If I must die, I must; children
don't cry it will not be long, the happy time is drawing near -" he
tried to speak farther, but was not permitted. Sam was a bright,
