    Starb den 29. Jan. in York T. Sandusky County, O., Martin Focht im Alter von 65 J., 6 M., u. 16 T. Er wurde geboren in der Schweiz, im Canton Basel, Europa, kam schon vor vielen Jahren nach Amerika und bekehrte sich vor etwa 20 Jahren in Staat Neuyork, wo er sich der Ev. Gemeinschaft anschloß und cine Zeit lang als Klaßführer diente. Seit seiner Bekehrung war sein Hauptbestreben Gott zu gefallen, und sein größtes Bergnügen von Gottes Werk zu reden. Die Ursache seines Todes war die leberkrankheit, weran er 4 Wochen bettlägerig war und sehr zu leiden halte, was er aber in christlicher Geduld ertrug. Kurz vor seinem Ende ließ er seine in der Umgegend wohnenzen Kinder zu sich kommen und ermahnte sie, sich für die Ewigkeit vorzubereiten ; worauf er rührend von ihnen Abschied nahen und sanft und selig in dem verschied. Bei seinem leichenbegängniß hielt G. eine zweckmäßige Rede über Offenb. (Offenbarung) 14,…
