17 Sep 1823

    At Covert, on Friday Aug. 29th, after an illness of about three weeks, Elder Obed WARREN, in the 64th year of his age. As a Christian, a minister, a counsellor, a fellow-laborer, and a father in Zion, he had but few equals. Although he has been in this part of the harvest but few years, yet his labours have been arduous, abundant and successful; giving counsel to the simple, direction to the bewildered, comfort to mourners in Zion, warnings to the wicked, and confutation to error. He finished his public labours the Sabbath but one before he fell victim to death. His mind was so much impressed with the spirit of the gospel, and the importance of preaching to a dying world, that it was not until he was expiring, that he relinquished the expectation of his recovery. It was at length said to him, "you are dying." His answer was, "farewell, I am free from the blood of all men," and instantly fell asleep in Jesus.
