Obituary

Mr. Homer Hawley, who was born in East Cambridge, Vt. Feb. 15, 1833, died in Macon, Georgia, May 8, 1886, of consumption. He was buried the 18th inst. in the Hawley burial ground near his old home place.

During the war he was a member of Co. I., 1st Vermont Cavalry. No doubt his ill health dated from this period, as he has ever since been compelled to follow some light employment. This has made him quite a traveler, he having visited a large part of his own country, Australia, India, and Europe. Since his return, with the exception of a few months in Florida, he has resided in Georgia.

His death found him in full hope of eternal life through Christ, in whom he trusted for salvation. His dying testimony was that "Jesus was with him".

I have known him intimately as a businessman for four years. He was honest, upright, and just in all his dealings, and it gives me pleasure to pay this respect to my dear friend and Christian brother. Rev. A. Richards.
