William H. Teague, whose illness I mentioned in your last issue, died near Mannington on the 16th inst., of neuralgia.
Probably no one every suffered more pain during life than the deceased. He contracted the neuralgia of the face during the war, which gradually grew worse.
He had had several operations performed on his face which afforded only temporary relief. He had been entirely prostrated with the disease for several years.
He was a member of the Universalist church, and also a member of the Sonsolation Lodge of Masons, by which fraternity he was buried with appropriate honors at old Petersburg.
He leaves a wife and two children who showed their affection and love for him by their untiring devotion and attention during his long and severe illness.
May they and his many friends find consolation in the thought that separation here is not final, that in the fullness of time a reunion above await them, where pain, sorrow, sickness and death are unknown, and where happiness is eternal. in that land your husband, your father, your friend clothed in bright immortality shines forth today and will one day greet you to never part again.
