      Name of Deceased: DEATHERAGE, Achilles
      Name of Newspaper: Printed obituary in the family Bible
      Date of Obituary:
      Obituary: Died. - Achilles DEATHERAGE was born in Roan county, North Carolina, Feb. 4, 1799, and died at his home near Waverly, March 15, 1891. In the year 1815 he emigrated to Logan county, Ky.; and in the year 1825 he came to this state and settled near his home he now leaves to his children. Here, with the exception of one year, he spent his after life.
      He was married Feb. 27, 1828, to Melinda ROGERS, with whom he lived happily for fifty-one years, she being called away twelve years ago. Ten children were born to them, five of which died in infancy and early childhood. One other, J. W. DEATHERAGE, died only a year ago. The other four, Mrs. S. F. HOLLIDAY, Mrs. S. M. WATKINS, J. N. and C. R. DEATHERAGE, survive him, all of whom, except the last named, were present to minister to their aged father in his last suffering.
      He served in the Black Hawk war from 1831 - 2. While in this service his horse fell on him, inflicting a wound from which he suffered in all his after life.
      He united with the regular Baptist church about forty five years ago, having been converted several years before.
      He was an upright and faithful Christian, devoted to his church and rejoicing in the prosperity of Zion. He was perhaps without an enemy, and held in high esteem by all who knew him. For many years past he has been in feeble health, during all of which time his daughter, Mrs. WATKINS, took care of him and ministered to his wants as only one of a thousand is seen to do. His last sufferings were severe, but soon over ___ six days, and sweet release came. He died peacefully and without a struggle. His funeral was preached at the house, by Rev. Purvine, to a large concourse of sympathizing relatives and friends, and the remains were laid to rest in the Rogers cemetery.
