"Amaziah Mullen died at his late residence in Forreston, Illinois Thursday September 27, 1888. The subject of this notice was a son of James and Matilda Mullen, who still survive him. He was born in the State of Ohio and in 1853 came to this country. When 20 years of age he enlisted in Capt. Tood's Co., 142nd Illinois Infantry and served his country as a soldier from May 4, 1864 until Oct. 26 of the same year. On Oct. 20, 1868, Mr. Mullen married Miss Lizzie Dellinger. To them were born one daughter. The daughter died on March 8, 1879 and his wife fell a victim of death August 9, 1887. In the fall of 1881 the deceased was taken sick with consumption, from which after seven years of patient suffering he fell asleep and was laid away to rest with his kindred until the Lord shall come. When yet a young man, Brother Mullen gave his heart to the Lord and was for many years a zealous worker in His vineyard, part of the time with the U.B. Church of this place, but the past ten years he has not been a member of any denomination, but has worshipped God with the Adventists until he was compelled to remain at home. The funeral services were held in the U.B. Chapel, conducted by the undersigned, assisted by Rev. E. K. Yenkel of the Evangelical church, where a symphathising audience gathered to show their last sad tribute of respect. Words of comfort were spoken, based upon Phil. I 20-3.
J. August Smith"
