Claverhouse bade him say his prayers for he had only a
few minutes to live. He prayed with such fervor, that when
Claverhouse ordered his men to fire upon him, they would.


not do so. Claverhouse with a pistol and aa oath, blew his
brains out, in the presence of his wife.

The widow laid down her child, tied up her husband's
head with her apron, stretched out his limbs, covered him
with her plaid, and sat down and wept bitterly. Without
means, without a friend to help, and liable to be persecuted,
she was at her wits end, but God cared for her and removed
her to Ireland, where she found friends and married again."

Dauphin Co., Penna. and his son James removed to Cum-
ber Ian Co., Penna. John, son of James, was with the

children were born.
