7 Jul 1871The Charleston Daily News. (Charleston, South Carolina) on July 07, 1871, carried the following obituaries.

IN MEMORIAM.

Alexander Gordon and Robert Mure.

At a meeting of the corporation of the First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, held on the evening of July 3d, 1871, Mr. A. S. Johnston offered the following preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted:
The angel of Death has recruited his legions, and added two more victims to the grand army of the virtuous and good, and it goes marching on to its final reward.

This church mourns to-day the absence of two of its brightest ornaments – most cherished members and strong supports.

Since we last met it has pleased God, in His Infinite wisdom, to remove from our midst Alexander Gordon and Robert Mure, both natives of Kirkcudbright, Scotland, and, since their sojourn in their adopted homes, active members and ruling elders of this church.

A long and intimate social and religious association, taught us to recognize and appreciate those sterling virtues and high moral principles which adorned and Illustrated their lives, and which was so beautifully delineated in their deaths.
lt is with profound humility that we, as Christians, bow before the Divine Majesty, and recognize in this dispensation of Providence, that "our loss is to them gain," and that their spirits, wafted to brighter homes, are in the enjoyment of eternal bliss.

Both of our deceased brothers engaged the esteem, confidence and respect of both pastor and people, and held for four years the highest position of trust in our church. In all times of trouble and distress they were never found wanting in extending a helping hand, cheering the afflicted, and, by their high religions tone, giving moral dignity and strength to all undertakings with which they were connected.

With this church they were peculiarly and dearly connected, and principally through their energy, zeal and sound judgment, combined with true Christian magnanimity, are we indebted for support and comfort in times of our sorest trials.

All classes of our community have united in expressions of sorrow, with deep and profound reverence at the loss sustained, and it remains for us, their Christian brothers and fellow-members of this church, to mingle our tears with theirs, and lay this, our humble tribute of sympathy and grief, at the feet or those who "mourn only as they can mourn," who felt the greatest loss, and trust that an overruling Providence, who worketh all things for the best, will give Christian comfort and consolation in His own good time; therefore, be it

Resolved, That in the deaths of Alexander Gordon and Robert Mure, this church has lost two of its oldest and most esteemed officers – earnest friends, liberal contributors, and exemplary members.

Resolved, That this be recorded upon the minutes of this corporation, and that blank pages be Inscribed to their memories.

Resolved, That a copy or these proceedings be sent to the bereaved families of the deceased, accompanied with the hearty condolence of this church.

Resolved, That the same be published in the morning papers of this city and Southern Presbyterian and index of Columbia; also the papers of Kirkcudbright, Scotland, be requested to copy.

R.B. Dowie, Secretary.
