John Webber

On Jan 15th last, Mr. John Webber at the age of 69 years, passed away to his long home. Mr. Webber was a victim of dropsy and that he was a great sufferer is confirmed by his words on the night he died, when he prayed "O Heavenly Father! Take me out of this misery." 

The deceased was born in Honiton Devonsire County, England, April 1st. 1825. He came to this country 
in 1857 and settled in Albany N.Y. where, on Aug. 19th of the same year he was married in St. Peters Episcopal Church to Georganna J. Potts. He left Albany in 1860 and came to Yaphank where he spent the remaining thirty -four years of his life.

"Uncle John" was a man of sterling integrity; careful, and honet in his dealings, attentive to his labors, liberal with his neighbor and one who flet that there was a strong distinction between right and wrong. By his economy and frugality he had accumulated a comfortable home with a sufficient surplus to make him independent for more than mans allotted term of years, but the death messenger chooses who he will. 

:"Uncle John" will be greatly missed by family, friends and neighbors. A devoted wife, eight children and one brother survive him.
