Laban PRICE

LABORN PRICE was born in Marion District, S.C., May 16, 1827, and died in Putnam county, Fla., December 24, 1876.

Brother Price moved to Florida in 1859, joined the Methodist E. Church when 17 years old, and from that time till his death, he maintained a consistent Christian life. As a member of the Church he was faithful never missing an opportunity of attending church. He was liberal in supporting the cause of Christ, was always glad to see his preacher come to his house, which was in- deed a preaches home. He was very fond of prayer, especially family and private pray- er. He erected a family altar, and kept it up for many years; before he died he told his sons "never let the family altar go down, for said he, there I have spent the happiest hours of my life." Brother Price was the father of nine children, six sons and three daughters. The eldest daughter preceded him to the better land. No father was ever more successful in training his children than brother Price. He provided well for his family both temporarily and spiritually--he lived to see all of his children members of the M.E. Church except one whom he re- quest to join on his death bed. Truly brother Price lived and died in the Lord. As a citizen he was honored and beloved. He was buried with Masonic honors in the presence of a large gathering after which Dr. McRae delived an eulogy to his mem- ory.
