Death of Dr. O. Pinkerton.

Our community was shocked on Monday morning by the announcement that on the night before, Dr. O. Pinkerton, so long and favorably known to our people, had died.  For some time past he had been in failing health, and had, for a few days past been partially paralyzed.  It then became probable that his end was near, and on Sunday night, January 12, 1879, his spirit took its flight from all these “thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to.”

Dr. Pinkerton was a man distinguished for his honor, integrity and truth.  His private life was above reproach: his dealings with men were marked by strictest honesty.  Public confidence in him was never disappointed in the smallest circumstance.

To his family we tender our deepest sympathy in this hour of their bereavement.  For them is the glorious promise of an unbroken reunion, beyond the river.  His life had prophesied a blessed immortality.  Above his tomb, instinct with the promise of eternal life, we would inscribe, with all the warmth of friendship and all sacredness of truth, “An honest man is the noblest work of God.”
