    • OBITUARY
      Southern Christian Advocate

      Newdaygate Ousley, died near Macon, Ga., October 10th, of a "congestive chill." He had been complaining for some few weeks previous, but not so much as to be confined to the house. On that day the chill commenced at 8 o'clock in the morning and he died twelve hours afterward. To those who were acquainted with my father, it is almost unnecessary to say that he died in certain prospect of a blissful immortality. Though the summons was short, yet he was prepared, and in answer to my questions, the last hour of his life, he said, that all was well and that his God was present, to accompany him through the valley and shadow of death. He seemed to have some premonition of his death. About a month previous, he had a long conversation with my younger brother and said "that he felt his constitution was impaired and his health failing, and that he was likely to die at any time and gave directions in regard to his family and ... of his faith and trust in all the promises of God and of his perfect resignation to his will, both for himself and family. Allow me here to say, that I never knew anyone who was more regular and constant in all his recollections of him, he never failed to have "family prayer" morning and evening. My father was born in Greene co., Ga., 5th Jan., 1800. His father Rob't Ousley, not long after this moved to Jones co., and settled near Hillsborough, where my father lived until his marriage, which was in 1817. Previous to this event he had embraced religion and joined the M. E. Church. About 1822 he settled on Flint River a few miles above what is known as the "Agency." The Indians then occupied all the country west of the river. At this time he was called upon by his fellow citizens to execute many important public trusts and assisted by precept and example, in laying broad and deep the foundations of civil and religious society and in raising schools and churches in every neighborhood in which he lived. About 1828 he was licensed to preach. At this time he was living in Monroe co., near the village of Culloden. Since this time my father devoted much of his time to the ministry, had his regular weekly appointments, and I trust has been instrumental in doing much good. He was devoted to the church of his "fathers," rejoiced in all her successes, and assisted in every way he could the advancement of her interest. The last time he preached was five weeks before his death, at the funeral of a lady in Vineville. It was my good fortune to be present and I hope never to forget , how he spoke of the mercy and goodness of God here, and of the home prepared for the finally faithful, and the necessity of a change of heart and a life of obedience to the will of God to reach that home. My mother and family are greatly grieved at their irreparable loss and would be inconsolable were if not that his godly life and conversation assure them that their loss is his eternal gain. I pray his christian friends to remember them at a throne of grace.
