OBITUARY

LOFTIS REDLEE MUNNERLYN

The Southern Christian Advocate
Vol. V11, 27, December 15, 1843

"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord"

Died, at the house of his son, Rev. T. M. Munnerlyn, in Marion District, S.C., on 10th September last, Loftis R. Munnerlyn, aged about ninety years. He was with Marion throughout our revolutionary struggle, and with that brave and favourite son of Carolina, fought for the liberties we now enjoy. After living thirty years in the enjoyment of the and prosperity of his country, which his own bravery in part had procured, he at length was awakened in a sense of his lost state, through the instrumentality of his son, and gladly accepted the offer of mercy and grace through the intercession of a crucified Redeemer; and thenceforward to the day of his death, continued a consistent member of the M.E. Church, having learned to fight the battles of the Lord in the latter part of his life, as he had fought the battles of his country in the earlier part. The gruits of his former battle was deliverance from the tyranny of an earthly sovereign, with the enjoyment of civil liberty. His latter battles gave him the victory over the powers of darkness, and we trust he now wears a crown of rejoicing with the redeemed of the Lord, and has possession of an inheritance which passeth not away.
A.M.F.
