Knox, Mrs. Elizabeth M. Knox , consort of John G. Knox, deceased, and
daughter of David and Susan Glaze, was born Feburary 25, 1817, died on
the night of March 30, 1888, being 71 years of age.  She was married to
John G. Knox, in November of 1843; joined the Goshen Baptist church,
August 20, 1841, baptized by Rev. William H. Stokes, former pastor of
that church, moving her membership to the Lincolnton Baptist church in
early life.  She was always anxious to attend worship on every occasion
that presented itself, as she delighted to attend to her Christian
duties.  She remained a consistent member of that church until her death.
She became afflicted with paralysis in 1873, and was a sufferer of that
dread disease, confined to her bed for fifteen years.  She bore up under
her affliction without a murmur, which only those who have put on Christ
and claimed and acknowledged him to be their Redeemer and Saviour, could
do.  This beloved mother was loved and honored by many, who showed their
love and esteem by their repeated visitations and kind ministeries unto
her wants and needs.  She leaves four children, one son and three
daughters, who showed their great love and devotion for a mother by their
indefatigable watchfulness by her bedside during her long illness.  A few
days before her departure, warned by her increasing feebleness that the
close of her life-work was near at hand, she called for children and
grandchildren to come to her bedside, as she desired once more to see
their lovely faces, that she might say a word of comfort and consolation,
and that she might exort them, as she was soon to leave them, to live
godly and righteous lives thereby to be enabled to meet her in the bright
beyond.  Possessed of such an amiable and mother-loving dispostion, it
was hard to give her up.  She was noted in her younger days as the "sweet
singer," as she delighted to sing songs of praise to her Creator and
Redeemer.  One of her favorite hymns was,
"Jesus, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of Thee?
Ashamed of Thee whom angels praise--
Whose glories shine through endless days."

Knox.  Whereas, Elizabeth M. Knox, a member of this church, departed this
life on the 30th of March last, and, as we believe has joined the church
triumphant above, the Baptist church at Lincolnton, in conference
assembled, has thought it proper, as a fit memorial of the Christian
worth of the deceased, to adopt the following resolutions:

1. That in the death of sister Knox, the church at Lincolnton has lost
one of its most consecrated members.  That her whole Christian life, in
her humble sphere, has been a labor of love in the Master's cause; and
during her long and sore afflication, with a "calm and thankful heart,
from every murmur free," she has not left us without good hope, she is
now happy beyond the river in the "rest that remaineth for the people of God."

2. That her love for the church and its ordinances and the sweet melodies
of the Gospel, that mingle in blended harmony with the beautiful songs of
Zion "which make glad the city of our God, " and which were ever her joy
and delight, all commend her shinging Christian example to our highest
emulation, and verify the promise in her that "my grace shall be
sufficient for thee," and that, "earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal."

3. That we tender our sympathy to the bereaved family and request the
church to furnish them with a copy of these resolutions; that the same be
spread on our records, and copies be furnished to the Christian Index and
Lincolnton News for publication.
