Notes for Richard William PENTECOST
The Southern Banner
Feb. 09, 1839.
Died at his residence in Jackson County, Georgia, on the 27th of
January, the Rev. William Pentecost, in the 77th year of his age. The
deceased was one of the patriots who served his counrty in the American
Revolution. He was a native of Virginia, from where he removed to
Georgia, where he lived and died. He has been an exemplary member of the
Methodist Church for the last fifty years of his life, the most of which
he was engaged in preaching the Gospel; and was highly esteemed by all
who knew him, both as "a citizen" and a Christian. From this visitation
of Providence, the counrty has lost another one of her few remaining
patriotic worthies, the community has been deprived of one of its best
citizen; and a large number of relatives and friends left to mourn his
loss, who feel assurance that this is his eternal gain, and that he is
gone to reap his reward in Heaven.
