April 14th A.D. 1796 Died January 23, 1880 _________ Blessed Jesus "The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose, I will not, I will not desert to his foes; That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I'll never, no never, no never forsake He.
------------------------------------------ Published 1762 “How Firm a Foundation, ye Saints of the Lord” is a hymn that for over two centuries has assured believers of the faithfulness of Christ and the certainty of hope. The first verse acts almost as an introduction to the rest of the text, giving us cause to stop and ponder the Word of assurance that God has given us, described in greater detail in the next four verses. Those four verses are in fact paraphrases of Scripture passages: Isaiah 41:10, 43:2, Romans 8:3-39, Hebrews 13:5, and Deuteronomy 31:6. In the words of this hymn then, we carry with us the Word from God, and the call to trust in that Word. But God’s Word is expansive and not limited to letters on a page - the fifth verse moves us to a trust in the Word made flesh in Jesus Christ. Thus we are assured by the words we sing, the Word we are given, and the Word made flesh, of the steadfastness of God and His unfailing love.
RE: Henry L Cable I know the guy who used to have all the records when he worked for the city. He recently retired from the city. I'll try to contact him for you and ask if he still has access to the files or who does. I'll let you know what I find out as soon as I hear back from him.
RE: Thank you You are very welcome. Wish the stone would have been in better shape, but at least the name is still visible. I didn't create the memorial so I can't add anything to the site, but if you send a correction notice using the edit button on his site you may be able to get the creator of the site to update the site with actual information.
Another member, John Steele, transferred Charlotte Jane Hunter Aker to me today and I am now transferring her to you. I know that you have been working on the Aker's and Charlotte was the first wife of Francis Theodore Aker and the mother of Walter Marion Aker.
