|Death at Red House
Rev. Sylvester Grover, an aged minister, died at his home in Red House,
Dec.10, at 10 o'clock, aged 75 years, eight months, 25 days.
His sudden death was caused by a sever fall which he received nearly two
weeks ago. In a prediction which he made the Sunday before he said, "This
may be the last sermon I shall ever preach," and it came true; before another
Sabbath morning dawned he was with his God. The funeral was held from
the family residence Saturday, interment in Steamburg cemetery. he left an
aged companion and three sons and three daughters to mourn his loss.
Dearest father thou hast left us,
and thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God that hast bereft us,
he can all our sorrows heal.
