JORDAN, BARTHOLOMEW—"Died at the resident of his son in this County, in the 83rd year of his age, on the 24th ultimo, Bartholomew Jordan. The deceased emigrated from North Carolina and settled near Huntsville many years ago. His unexampled piety, his orderly walk, and his Christian conversation, connected with his many acts of benevolence and charity, were well calculated to endear him to the community in which he lived. Old Father Jordan was emphatically one of those rare beings who left the world without an enemy. He seemed perfectly sensible of his approaching dissolution and spoke of his departure from this world as one who had long had it in his mind to visit his friends in a far off land, and appeared as though he was anxiously waiting for the arrival of the moment when he could set out upon his long journey. His faith in the merits of a Saviour's blood, like the sun, seemed to grow larger when setting, and abundantly showed that in his last moments his immortal soul was vigorous and strong, and that it remained unhurt amid the ruins of dissolving nature. The writer of this poor sketch feels confident that no one could have witnessed the last moments of this venerable old Patriarch and Saint without being fully convinced of the blessed reality of the Christian religion. While the poor, feeble, emaciated body was fast declining and the pulse became faint and few, the immortal soul, as if in the vigor of manhood, seemed like a bounding courser which had been long held back from the eager chace by the twisted bit, was anxious to be let loose from the body, that it might take its mystic flight into the boundless regions of felicity where even fancy itself has ceased to pursue. As a master Father Jordan was kind; as a friend and neighbor he was obliging and sincere; as a father his affection for his children could not be surpassed. But he is gone to the better land, where it is hoped that his friends will all meet him.—Huntsville Democrat, April 9, 1842.
