The Democrat, Huntsville, April 11, 1833, contains the following obituary:

"Suddenly at his residence in this County, on the 30th of March, Mr. John Amonit, in the Eighty-second year of his age—thus another revolutionary spirit has sunk into its rest— Rarely are we called to record the death of a more virtuous man.—He has been a citizen of this county upwards of twenty years. In the domestic circle, he was a kind and tender father, and affectionate companion, a social and obliging neighbor, much beloved by numerous friends, and enemies he had none. In youth, he boldly met the foe and nobly defended the cause of liberty—few have ever so well prepared for their last great change—he settled his earthly concerns— ate a hearty supper—called his family around him—addressed the throne of grace lay down in perfect composure—fell asleep in the arms of his Savior, and awoke in the Paradise of his God. Thus died Mr. Amonit, without a groan, and left a wife, four children and numerous friends to mourn their loss, which is his infinite gain, and he now reaps the just reward of his labors."

ARMISTEAD, WILLIAM. The grave of this soldier is described in Ball's Clark County, Alabama, pp. 475-6. We learn that a Capt. William Armistead of Virginia and three sons, Robert, Westwood and John, became citizens of Clarke. The father was a man of strong peculiarities, a gentleman of the old school, wearing knee buckles and retaining English tastes. He was twice married and had three sons and three daughters. One daughter married John Morriss, in North Carolina, and moved to Alabama; another daughter married Edmund Waddell, in North Carolina; the third married Dr. Neal Smith, a gentleman of prominence in his day.

 The grave stands alone, neatly enclosed with rocks and pickets on a hill near Amity Church in the family burial ground, on the plantation bequeathed by him to his son-in-law, Dr. Neal Smith, about eight miles from Grove Hill.
