Parental love has reared this stone;

, Aug. 20, 1837.
A remarkable incident occurred on his return from Liverpool
to Charleston, S. C.
, in the winter of 1829.
He was seasick to such a degree that he lost his memory of past and present events, and also the power of standing or walking without help, but still he could converse on past and present affairs with apparent correctness, but it was all lost to his mind when the conversation ended.
He was highly esteemed by those who knew him for his honorable and open manner in all his transactions.

Weep not, my spirit's passed away,
And left this tenement of clay,
And soared on high, to dwell in love
With God, my faithful friend above.
