1839: Death of Wilbur Fisk

Wilbur FiskDeath Loves a Shining Mark.

The papers from the east announce the death of Rev. Wilbur Fisk, which took place at Middletown Conn., on Friday last. Dr. Fisk was president of the Wesleyan University, located at Middletown, and has been esteemed one of the brightest ornaments of the Methodist church, both on account of his extensive acquirements and his great piety and zeal. He has been intimately connected with the many efforts to extend the light of christianity, and few men engaged in the cause of christian charity will leave behind them a name more honored or revered.

From The Sun (Baltimore, Maryland), Feb. 28, 1839.
