Benjamin H. Stillman was born in DeRuyter, N. Y., April 2, 1835, and died April 12, 1908, in Riverside, California.
Mr. Stillman at an early age gave his heart to Christ and united with the Lincklaen Center Seventh-day Baptist Church, of which he was an active member when he went to Oregon about twenty years ago, and united with the Talent church at the time of its organization. After this people disbanded, he joined the Riverside Church. Less than a year ago he came to Riverside. That he was able to be among people of like faith the last months of his life gave him joy unspeakable; and he frequently remarked that it seemed almost like heaven to him.
When a child he delighted in the Scriptures. To the last he never grew weary of them, and when he became too weak to read, he loved to have the same story read to him.
He leaves a son, who was with him at the last and who deeply feels his loss, also a grandson who lives in New York. E. F. L.
