William F. Minisee/Minesee (July 13, 1826-May 24, 1877)
DIED, of consumption, in Solon, Kent Co., Mich., May 24, 1877, my husband, William Minisee, aged 50 years, 10 months, and 11 days. Although a
great sufferer, he never complained. He felt that Jesus was very near him. He was converted when quite young, and joined the Methodist Church. About 18 years ago, he received the truth on the Sabbath, and has since been a faithful member of the S. D. Adventist church in Gaines. Myself and son are left to mourn our loss; but we mourn not as those that have no hope. Discourse by a Baptist minister, from Job. 13:15, a text selected by the deceased.
