the church revealed the fact that he was
there buried. The tombstone inscription is
here given, with other memoranda. By re*
ferring to the early series of Notes and
Queries we find that the Rev. Mr. Illing
married at Middletown, Elizabeth La Hue,
but we have not learned when she died, or
whether they, left any children.]



[The following minute is all thai can be
gathered from the Parish records] :



At a meeting of the congregation of
Bangor Cbnrch, on Monday, the 24th of
March, 1788: Present: The Rev. Frederick
Illing: • • • Ii is also agreed by the
vestry, that the church wardens who have
serted in Bangor Church since the Riv. Mr.
Frederick Illing has supplied, they shall, as
soon as possible, collect up their arrearages
for the time they were church wardens,
either money or notes, to be paid in a short
time; but if any persons refuse to pay their
arrearages in money or notes, then the said
church wardens are to proceed and sue them
according to law, and make report of their
proceedings to said vestry at the next meet-
ing. (Signed,)

[Inscription in Bangor church yard.]
In
Memory of
the Rrv'd T. G. F. Illing,

who departed this life

the Uth Day of July, 1800,

in the 71st year of his Age.

He was a tender and affectionate

husband, a true an 1 faithful

Minister of the Gospel,
and a friend to all mankind.

Why do we mourn departing friends,
Or shake at death's alarms ?

Tis but the voice that Jesus sends
To call them to His arms.

Why shonld we tremble to convey

My body to the tomb ?
There the dear flesh of Jesus lay,

And left a sweet perfume.

Thence He arose, ascending high,
And showed our feet the way ;

Up to che Lord His saints shall fly
At the great rising day.
