Obituary

[1]

"Elijah Pringle, aged about 84 years and 10 months, departed this life on Friday morning October 17, 1884. For 10 years his health has been gradually failing, much of the time confining him to his house, and for a month past, he has been unable to leave his bed. His end was quiet and peaceful, and among his last words he was able to say, 'All is well.' Mr. Pringle was one of our representative men in true worth and integrity of character. In all his business relations with his fellow men, his word was his bond, and by a long life of truth and faithfulness, he had won an honorable name. No one living can charge aught against him or convict him of any wrongdoing.

"To his church, of which he was a deacon for many years, he was a most generous and helpful member. The building in which the Baptists now worship in Sumter was, in great part, the result of his zeal, energy and beneficence. For many years and, in fact, until the beginning of the war, Mr. Pringle was repeatedly appointed as delegate from his church to attend upon the meetings of the Charleston Association, his name appearing in the minutes of that body about 30 times, commencing with the year 1828.

"Until failing health and the weakness of age over mastered him, his place as worshiper in his own church was never vacant, and for long periods when the congregation happened to be pastorless, he maintained the prayer meeting, and stimulated his brethren to the service of God. He is now come to his grave in a ripe old age as a "shock of corn cometh in his season." Instead of deploring his death, devout thanks should be returned to God for his long, useful and exemplary life."
