The County sites are back up. And here I was thinking no one ever uses them since Monica and Justin are the only contributors. But lo and behold, they are out there. Who knew.

The underlying problem hasn't been resolved. So if you find dead links or things that don't work, just use the back button.

Date of Death: 23 Aug 1876
Subject: Amos S. Vaux
Source: unknown, quoting St. Louis Evangelist

VAUX - Died, August 23d, 1876, Amos S. Vaux, of Typhoid fever. Our friends was a young man of great promise, much loved by all who knew him, a constant member of the Sabbath school and Bible class in Andrew county, Missouri.

He has gone, yes, gone forever,
From this world of sin and care;
Gone to dwell with angels ever
In a world that's bright and fair.


How we miss our dear companion
Since he left our little band;
But we trust he is in heaven,
In that happy, better land.


Never was his seat found vacant
Until death called him to go;
And our class seems sad and lonely
Since he left us here below.


May we all prepare to meet him
When this changing life shall cease;
May we have a joyful meeting
In that home of blissful ease.
