Name: Eugene A Spencer
From: The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro,
Mr. Eugene Spencer, aged 36, died recently at his home at Little Marsh. For
several months past he had been in very poor health and several of his friends,
with admirable thoughtfulness, planned an extended hunting trip for him,
thinking that his health would be benefited. Such was apparently the result, but
the changeable weather of February was too severe for his weakened constitution
and he had pneumonia, which ultimately caused his death. Before dying, he
experienced a remarkable conversion. The death chamber, though it witnessed
death, saw also a glorious victory, even over that death itself. Never could we
realize better the truth of the words "Oh death, where is thy sting; Oh, grave,
where is thy victory".
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 1907
Mr. Spencer was born January 26, 1871, and spent his life at Little Marsh. By
his manly characteristics, kindly disposition, cheerfulness and goodness of
heart he endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact. He was a young
man of the strictest integrity and sterling worth and his death is a loss to the
whole community. On December 29, 1898, he married Miss Minnie Leonard, who, with
2 children, Louise aged seven and Ashley aged four survives him.
The funeral services were very largely attended, although the day was bitter
cold; burial in the Beech cemetery.
