prisoned there on one of the old prison ships. In his later days he was
accustomed to relate to his grandchildren how, at this time, he was

Extract from a scn-mon delivered at the funeral of Adoniram Foot, by
Rev. E. B. Parsons, in the Presbyterian Church at Turin, May 1, 18G6.


" When he come into this County of Lewis, this rich valley was but little
known, and its resources were mostly undeveloped. He entered at once,
and heartily, into every public enterprise ealculattni to promote the inter-
ests of the county. He received a military commission from Governor
Tompliins in 1812, and occupied several other offices of public trust from
time to time. He was identified with those institutions whose motto
spoalvS for the (common brotherhood of mankind. He early connected
iiimself witli the anti-slavery movements of the country, as early as 1838,
and in the Presidential contest of 1840, his vote for James G. Birfiey.
He was independent in expression and faithful in prayer for the slave; yet
he was not rash, not fanatical; n'3ver joined those who denounced the
church and all other institutions for not moving so lapidly in this direction
as lie desired.

•' Hi.s Christian life in its outward manifestations was such as to bring
honor to the name of Christ. He gave himself into God's guidance at the
time of a general religious revival in 1830-1. He at once joined himself to
the Presbyterian Church at Martinsburg, and became one of the working
men of the church; he was ordained an elder in that church, October 13,
1833. He was many times member of Presbytery and Synod, and was a
delegate to the General Assembly that met in Philadelphia in 1843. In
his home work he was always diligent and faithful. His place at the
weekly prayer-meeting was seldom vacant, and no day was allowed to pass
without the observance of familj- prayer. He gave liberally for the sup-
port of the Gospel and for the great benevolent enterprises of the Christian
