"ELIZABETH LIPPINCOTT. Elizabeth Wills, daughter of John and Hope
Wills was born in Northampton township, Burlington County, West Jersey,
on the 14th day of the Seventh month, 1697. Submitting to the tendering
impressions of the Holy spirit on her mind, she became weaned from an
inordinate attachment to the things of this world, and found her heart
and affections set upon things heavenly. Marrying Freedom Lippincott,
she became a member of Evesham meeting, and under the trials and
probations which attended her in the married life, she appeared to deepen
spiritual knowledge, and became more and more useful in the church.
A gift of gospel ministry was conferred upon her, which she
exercised to the edification of the church. In an account of her last
illness, we
find it stated, "She was a religious woman, and it pleased God to give
her a testimony, to the comfort of her friends."
She was taken sick on the 25th of the First month, and her pain was
very severe, and to increase her distress, the enemy was permitted to
buffet her, and to infuse doubts into her mind as to her preparation for
the kingdom of rest and peace. But as she looked to the Lord for
comfort, he rebuked the enemy, and strengthened her to bear testimony to
his goodness to her in the midst of her closest suffering. On being
asked if she thought she should die, she said "I do not know, but am
willing to leave it to Providence! ******
Her illness rapidly increasing, she one night sent for her husband,
and on his coming to the bedside, she took him by the hand, and said,
"Come, my dear, and sit down by me. My time is but short, before I
shall be at rest." On his inquiring what he should do with the
children, she answered, "I shall leave them to God's mercy, and thy
On her aged father coming to see her, she said to him, "My time
is short. I would not have thee take it hard; I shall be happy. It will
not be long before thou comest after me. We are like people going a
journey; some set out two or three days before the rest. You will all
soon come after me."
Several of her brothers, sisters and friends standing by her bed
side, she felt a flow of gospel ministry, and although very weak in
body, yet was so strong in spirit with love to the Lord, ******
Samuel Lippincott, her husband's brother coming in, she commended
her children to his care, desiring that he should exercise a care that
they might be brought up in the fear of God. Samuel, assenting to her
wishes, spoke of her husband's loss in her removal. She said, "He must
keep to Truth, and then Providence will provide for him. He will yet
provide for him as he keeps to Truth. Do not in thy trouble get too
low; and be sure my dear, do not let anything lift thee up. I take
it as a great favour that the Lord is about to take me from the harms
to come. If I die now, I shall be in favour with God; if I should
live longer, and be disobedient so as to be out of his favour, it
would be a dreadful thing. I take it a favour from the Lord, that he
takes me in mercy and love. My prayers are as strong as ever that the
work the Lord has begun upon earth, may be carried on, ---- that
Truth may prosper." Mentioning the names of two Friends, she said,
"I should be glad to see them. They are my husband's sisters; they
are mine. His bone is my bone, and his flesh is my flesh. That
which is near to him is near to me."
She gave messages of love to some absent friends, and good
advice to her oldest son, and, in great peace departed this life,
Second month 2d, 1740, being in the 43 year of her age.
The testimony concerning the above Friend from Haddonfield Monthly
Meeting is very brief:---- "Elizabet

Daniel Collett, Sr., the youngest son of Moses Collett, was born February
10, 1752 in Maryland, twenty miles west of Baltimore. He remained at home
until 1772, when, at the age of twenty years he left Maryland and settled
in Jefferson Co. VA on the road leading from Charleston to Harpers Ferry.
He married about the year 1780 to Mary, a daughter of Joshua Haines,( who
died December 11, 1754) and by her had eight sons and a daughter, born as
follows: Joshua, November 20, 1781, Moses, March 28, 1783, Moses, March
6, 1784, Isaac, August 28, 1785, Jonathan, April 25, 1787, Aaron, January
21, 1789, Mercy, September 19, 1790, Benjamin, June 11, 1793 and Daniel,
October 1, 1795. Daniel Collett resided there forty years, and was for
many years a Justice of the Peace in that state, appointed, as they were
in those days in Virginia, for life or during good behavior.It was not
until after he was appointed that he learned to write, his instructor
being a Mr. Hibben. He held his courts monthly, and it is said that more
dignity and decorum attended a Justice's court in Virginia in those days
than are to be seen in the higher courts of Ohio at this day. On one
occasion, the Judge of the courts of Jefferson assessed a fine on each of
the Justices of that county for the neglect to provide and erect sutiable
steps to the jail at Charlestown. Justice Collett paid his fine, and then
took the contract for the erection of the stone steps that now grace the
front of that historic edifice. His son, Jonathan Collett, hauled the
stone and also part of the lumber and timber used in the construction of
the United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry.
Daniel remained in Jefferson County until 1812, or until sixty years of
age, when he sold out his lands and came to Ohio, and settled temporarily
in Warren County. In the early part of 1814, he returned to Virginia and
purchased of James Smith, Sr., the undivided one-half of Survey 1994, the
consideration being $5,895 currant funds of the United States, the actual
number of acres being 2, 358. Mr. Collett returned to Clinton County Ohio
the same year and settled on his purchase.

Pittsburger, Missing for 21 Years, Found

Pasadena, Cal., Oct. 8 - Missing for 21 years, Alexander B. Nevin, first husband of Mrs. W. A. Stanton, wife of a prominent southern California capitalist, and mistress of the imposing Grace Hill estate opposite of the Hotel Raymond, has been discovered through his handwriting.

According to his son, Nevin, who formerly was a wealthy banker of Sewickley, Pa., is acting under an assumed name, as agent for a large estate in Florida. Nevin's whereabouts was learned through the recognition of his handwriting by the postmaster at Sewickley. The postmaster informed Franklin L. Nevin, brother of the missing banker, whose search led him to Florida and discovery of his missing brother. No complications will attend the finding of Nevin, as his wife obtained a divorce before marrying Stanton.

125 An odd site note to Sarah's passing:

He Wants The Widow's Estate

[by telegraph to the Herald]

West Chester, Pa, July 13, 1888 . Some time ago, Mrs. Sarah Brinley McConkey, an aged lady, died here, leaving a fortune estimated at $900,000. which she willed to her nephews. Now Emmanuel Johnson, of Meyersdale, Somerset county, Pa., lays claim to the estate, asserting that he is Mrs. McConkey's adopted son. Today Johnson came here and was shown the will in the Register's office. He looked it over carefully and then said:

"She left me everything. I will investigate this thing. They are trying to keep this away from me, but I'll show them. I have served on the farm she left me in Somerset."

"When did she leave it to you?" asked the Deputy Register.

"The very night she died. It was by secret communication."

"Then you are a Spiritualist, are you?" asked the Deputy Register. Johnson left the office without making answer and has not been seen since.
