Livermore Russell Hall, 1818 – 1871 (Obituary furnished by his great, great grandson, Stephen E. Hall)
� Bro. Hall had been for several years an active member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was at the time of his death a steward, trustee, and Sabbath-school superintendent. As a husband and father, he was faithful and kind; as a citizen, universally esteemed; as a Christian, abundant in labors, honored and beloved.� No words can suitably express the sorrow occasioned in the home circle, the Church, and the community by his sudden removal; but our loss is his gain. He left to the bereaved family and friends the blessed assurance of a peaceful death, and a final triumph. During his closing hours, the precious song of devotion, that so often fell from his lips at the family altar, and in the social meetings of his Church, and which we shall ever hold in sacred remembrance, inspired his soul with renewed courage, and was faithfully exemplified in his experience, so that even now its echo comes back to comfort our hearts, and to urge us to a complete consecration, in the same words:---
“The consecrated cross I’ll bear,
Till Christ shall set me free;
Then I’ll go home the crown to wear,
For there’s a crown for me.”
� Trusting in the comforts of the Holy Spirit, we commend the afflicted ones to Him who is “a Father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widow, in His holy habitation,” who alone hath the power to bind up the broken-hearted, believing that He will give the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
