Death of David W. Hampton

Roanoke Beacon
23 Sep 1898

DIED. At his home at Water Lily, Currituck county, on the 16th inst., David W. Hampton, Esq., aged about 55 years.

The deceased was a member of the Primitive Baptist church and lived a life full of love to his God and all mankind, and his death filled the hearts of all who knew him with grief. But to his relatives and friends who mourn, comes the messenger of peace, saying in a still, small voice, “It is well. He has passed beyond this veil of tears; he has entered the gate that stands ajar and taken up his abode in that home not made by hands, eternal in the heavens.”

The Beacon, which he so much enjoyed, extends to the bereaved heartfelt sympathies.
