Obit: OBITUARY OF ASHER P. FLY

FLY--The subject of this notice was born in Murray county, Tennessee, August 9, 1804; united in the bonds of matrimony November 28, 1825 and migrated to the State of Arkansas in 1833 and thence to Barry county, Missouri, and settled on Shoal Creek; where he resided until his death. He professed religion and joined the Methodist Church about the year 1840 and in the separation of 1844 became a member of the M. E. Church, South, of which he was a consistent member until his death, December 22, 1868. Brother A. P. Fly was a man of extraordinary mind and especially in reference to the doctrine and discipline of the Church to which to which he belonged. He was a man of dauntless courage, yet humble, and affable and lamb-like. His life was a living epistle of Christianity, known and read of all men with whom he had intercourse. The subject of religion was his usual topic of conversation. He was confined to his bed only little over a fortnight. The last place he ever attended was the second quarterly meeting held by Bro. H. W. Webster. He partook of the sacrament with humility and tearful gratitude. On his return home he sought his chamber, seemingly to lie down to die. I called on Bro. Fly during his illness and felt very loth to leave him, and said "Bro. Fly, I feel reluctant to leave you." He replied instantly, "Go on, Bro. Wright and preach and do your duty and pay no attention to me, for I have nothing to fear. God is with me and my way is clear." Thus he continued until his death. He died as a good man dieth, and I have only to say, sleep, Bro. Fly, till God shall awake thee. Cassville, MO 1869, C. C. Wright
