    • Mrs. Hannah C. Barrett, wife of Rev. W. Barratt, of the Genesee Conference, was born in Clarendon, Rutland County, Vermont, in the year 1809, and died in Kendall, Orleans County, New York, Nov. 2nd, 1879.
      Early in life she felt the need of the religion of Christ; and her childhood was one of piety; but it was not until she was about seventeen, that she made an open profession of saving faith.
      In 1832, she was united in marriage with him, who now mourns this tie, and homes' broken band; and entered upon the work, sacrifices, joys and triumphs of the Christian ministry. As a Pastor's wife, she was indeed a helpmate for her husband, in the arduous work of the ministry. She was always ready when opportunity presented to testify for Christ, or to lead the devotions of the people. She loved all the means of grace, and was constant in their use; and there is no doubt that many were led to Christ through her instrumentality.
      When in difficulties and discouragements, she always had an encouraging word. Her earnest prayer was for the Divine blessing upon the word preached by her husband. To all his appointments she went cheerfully, and in every place left the fragrance of a good name and Christian character. Her life was a beautiful illustration of the religion she professed for so many years, and in the active work of which she spent almost the whole of her long life. In all the relations of life she endeavored to act well her part, so as to be approved by her Lord and Saviour. She was the mother of six children, four of whom preceded her to the home in heaven; only two, Dr. W. Barratt of Buffalo, Erie County, New York, and Mrs. Dr. Boughton, of Wilson, Niagara County, New York, with the bereaved husband remain of the family to mourn her departure to the heavenly rest, for which she was so fully prepared. For two years she suffered patiently under the influence of disease, and at last she sweetly fell asleep in Jesus. She was at all times resigned to the will of the Master, for Jesus was ever present and precious to her. Her long and useful life was crowned in its closing, with wonderful manifestations of God's saving presence and power. She continued calmly trusting in Jesus to the last. Thus our departed Sister lived and died.
