1793 - 1872


"Rev. Samuel Pavy, died of consumption, Feb. 22, 1872, aged 79 years 1 month and 5 day, at the residence of Mr. Supply Walker, near Querqus Grove, Switzerland county, Indiana.

He was born in Harrison county Kentucky, January 17th, 1793. In the year 1813 he enlisted in the service of his country. Returning from the army he was married to Miss Sallie Babit, September 11th, 1814. In the year 1829 he moved to Indiana, where he has since resided. In the year 1823 he became an ordained minister in the "Regular Baptist" branch of the Church in which he remained until death. Although death came suddenly, it was not unexpected. It found him with his "house in order" and his work accomplished." His trust was firm in the God of his salvation. Death to him had lost his terror and the grave was robbed of its gloom. He was buried in the cemetery at Quercus Grove beside the remains of his companion, who had preceded him to the "better land" 1 year, 1 month and 2 days.

As a minister of the Gospel he was faithful, earnest and practical. As a citizen he was upright and scrupulously exact, a "true man" in the strictest sense. As a father, his was an example worthy of the inituation of his household, and of all who came within his influence.

His funeral sermon was preached by the writer from Job 14, 10; "But man dieth and wasteth away", "Yea, man giveth up the Gost and where is he?" Truly we may say a good man has fallen. "He rests from his labors and his works do follow him."
