Henry Bainbridge (1791-1849)
Posted by: Richard Johnson (ID *****0449) Date: December 19, 2012 at 13:46:14
  of 525

Jan. 11th--At York, aged fifty-eight, Mr. Henry Bainbridge, having been a member of the Wesleyan society for twenty-seven years. His conversion shows the importance of seasonable admonition. He was on his way to the races at York, and had to call on the venerable Richard Murdsall about some business. The good old man remonstrated and prayed with him. This led Mr. Bainbridge to serious reflection, and after mature deliberation he gave himself first to God, and then to his church according to his will. The union thus commenced was unbroken till death. As a truly pious and amiable man, and as a useful Class-Leader and Sunday-school Conductor, he was beloved by all who knew him. His faith and patience had often been tried; but the grace of God was sufficient for him. In his last moments he was enabled to triumph through Christ Jesus, and died to live forever.

I have a Wesleyan-Methodist class ticket signed, I believe, by this man, and I wonder if there are any descendants of his out there who might like to have it? Email me at roj@nccn.net
