Fort, Micajah

 The Tennessee Baptist
January 12, 1856

 Died in Bolivar, Tennessee, Dec. 19, 1855.  Micajah Fort aged 87 years.

Brother Fort was born and raised in North Carolina, but early in life removed to Kentucky, where he professes religion in 1814.

He did not immediately join the church on account of some difficulties existing in the body; but he ever sustained a consistent life.  He finally united with Little River Baptist Church, Christian County, Kentucky, of which he continued a devouted [sic] member many years.  About three years since he removed to Bolivar and united with the church at this place.

Brother Fort endeavored, from the time he professed religion, to illustrate the genuineness of his faith by a well ordered life.  He made the Bible his constant study until he was deprived of sight.  After he became blind, as long as hearing was preserved, he took delight in listening to the reading of God's Word and the preaching of the gospel.  When both sight and hearing failed, he loved to repeat passages of scripture, which his memory enabled him to do with great accuracy.  During his last illness he was resigned to the will of God, his faith and his hope never failed him.  If he was impatient at all, it was for the hour of his departure from earth to heaven.

May God sanctify this bereavement to the spiritual good of his afflicted children and relatives and also to the church of which he was a beloved member.
