  • Village Record on February 1, 1826 — Death — Obituary Died on Tuesday, 20th December, at his residence, in West Fallowfield township, Chester county, Pa. THOMAS LOVE, Esq. in the 86th year of his age. …In his death Faggs’Manor Church has lost her best earthly friend, Chester county, one of her best citizens, and America one of her most devoted patriots…As a Patriot he acted his part disinterestedly, honestly, and consistently. When his country, nearly half a century ago, was not only threatened with European thraldom, but actually invaded by the armies of European tyrants, and pierced in almost every vein by European bayonets; then, with a warm heart and a strong arm, he marched to the field of battle: and like David against Goliath, or Joshua at the head of the armies of Israel, he did not rely upon his own, or his countrystrength, but upon that of God, who gave us national independence and national peace. Nor did he, as alas! too many do, amidst the dissipations of the army, forget that he was a member of the Church. Those who were his companions in the trying scenes of the revolution, can no doubt recollect the fact, that from his tent, the voice of prayer and praise was heard regularly morning and evening, when the call to march did not prevent; and when the national independence was secured and peace restored, he continued nearly fifty years, to give uniform, strong, decisive evidence, that he was really his countryfriend. As a Magistrate, he executed the duties of his office with much propriety, and unusual dignity. For although he had not made human law his particular study in early life, yet in consequence of the goodness of his heart, and the strength of his judgment, his decisions were generally correct; and rarely if ever, did a man execute the duties of that office, the same length of time, with making as few enemies. But more especially as a member of the Church, and as a ruling elder in the church, his character shone in its real beauty and its true glory…Ten days before his death, although at the advanced age of almost 86 years he had to face the northern wind the distance of 6 miles; yet he occupied his place in the sanctuary as honorable example to every member of the congregation. About 70 years ago, he was awakened to the concerns of his soul, under the ministry of Mr. Whitefield. At that time there was a revival of religion in this district of the country, and he was one of the subjects.

  • Village Record on February 8, 1826 — Death — Obituary DIED, at his residence, in West Fallowfield township, Chester county, on the 21st instant, Col. JACOB HUMPHREY, aged 74 years and 3 months. In the death of Col. Humphrey, Chester county, has lost one of her most distinguished citizens, and the American people one of the early and steadfast defenders of their rights. [Revolution] Possessed of a manly form, a robust constitution, a patriotic mind and heroic spirit, no sooner was the tocsin of alarm sounded in the year ‘, than the subject of these memoirs flew to the tented field, bearing the rank of Captain. Here, in common with many of his fellow citizens, for seven long years he endured the hardships, suffered the privations, and encountered the dangers incident to the soldiers’life in those that tried men souls.’…He was present at, and fought in, the battle of Trenton and of Princeton – of Brandywine and of Germantown – of Monmouth and of York Town, besides in several skirmishes or battles of smaller note. At the cannonade of Trenton, I think it was, a musket ball passed along his forehead, directly over one of his eyes, leaving an indelible scar. At the battle of Monmouth a musket ball entered the side of the calf of his right leg, making an incision of about three inches in length, but happily not very deep. The ball was soon after extracted by the surgeon, and he experienced no serious injury from the wound. The scar of this wound was particularly examined by some of the Colfriends, when bathing his legs, but a few days previous to his decease. In another engagement, a musket ball struck the buckle of his left knee, and carried it entirely off – leaving a swelling nearly the size of a walnut on the cap of the knee, and causing a little halt in his walk ever after. All these scars he carried to his grave. …As a citizen, a neighbour, a friend, a husband, a father – and as a member of the legislature of this state, his worth is too well known to need a panegyric in this place – He was the friend and companion of the great and good La Fayette, and accompanied him in the barouche to Col. Filson, on the day after the visit to the battle ground near ChaddFord. Here, after breakfast, the writer saw these venerable defenders of our liberty, brim-full eye,’take the last – the last farewell of each other. On Monday, the 23d instant, his remains were interred in the Baptist burying ground, near his dwelling, amidst an unusually large and solemn concourse of friends and citizens.

To the manly sincerity and rank [?] hospitality of the seaman, he joined the polished urbanity of an accomplished gentleman.
