    Had the South in her border
    A hero to spare,
    Or a heart at her altar,
    Lo! its life's blood was there!
    And the black battle-grime
    Might never disguise
    The smile of the South
    On the lips and the eyes
    Of her barefooted boys!

    • OBITUARY
      Friday, 14 Feb 1879

      Through the all-wise Providence of God, was taken from our midst the 31st ultimo, T.W. Baskin, son of the Rev. James Baskin, who as born in this county the 26th day of February 1844. He joined the M.E. church at Concord in early life. In the year 1866 he made a public profession of religion and commenced to walk in the sunshine of God's love; and for some time previous to his death he was a class leader and during the last year he became more active in the discharge of all his Christian duties. He was in ill health for several months before his death, which he bore with Christian fortitude. While confined to his bed he was frequently talked with about his spiritual condition and always expressed himself as ready to die, or resigned to the will of God.

      He has left a wife, six children and many other relatives to mourn his departure. May God bless them in their bereaved condition and may they all be as well prepared for death as this noble spirited man and meet where parting will be no more.
