His mind is calm, rational and always sane, he is indifferent to the external, somewhat careless of his appearance, and of simple habits, he has been a useful man in his day and generation. The public schools have been his special care. It has been his delight to beautify the grounds. He is widely informed, a good public speaker, and a very strong debater. Caldwell, J.R.

He was connected with the Orthodox Congregational denomination, to the support of which he contributed.5,6

Rev. Benson Sewall1

M, #13283, b. 2 July 1862, d. 28 December 1887
     Rev. Benson Sewall was born on 2 July 1862 in Wenham, Essex County, Massachusetts.2 He was the son of Prof. John Smith Sewall and Louisa B. Benson.1 Rev. Benson Sewall drowned on 28 December 1887 in Hampden, Penobscot County, Maine, at the age of 25 whilst skating on the Penobscot.3 He was buried on 30 April 1888 in Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine, Lot Number, 3CG.4

"[he] ..... graduated at Bowdoin College in 1883. The death of his sister left him the only child of his parents. He early consecrated himself to Christ and to the Christian ministry. He spent four summers in the Summer Schools at Amherst, Burlington, and Boston, and two in Europe, going the second time for study in Germany. During the two years that intervened between College and Seminary he was Principal of the Academy in Shoreham, Vt., and entered upon his work there with the vigor of youth and the high aims of a Christian. His labors proved an inspiration not only to his pupils but throughout the community. Returning he entered Bangor Theological Seminary in the autumn of 1885, and would have graduated next June. At the close of his middle year he spent three months in home missionary work in Iowa, to which he devoted the energies of a robust body, a clear brain, an earnest purpose, and a warm heart. The results were remarkable, and the churches he served are praising God for his fidelity and success.

His youthful culture took a wide range, from such work as preparing the Index for Professor Harper’s Hebrew Grammar, to the study of art and music, of both which he was very fond. He was well read in the master minds of literature. He had for a long time purposed to offer himself to the Board for service as a foreign missionary. Three years of his college course and the whole of his seminary work were made to point steadfastly in this direction. But while yet his preparations were going forward, his Master has transferred him to another sphere, where his youthful promise will find fuller fruition, where his ardor will find larger scope, and where the Lord can make his ministrations - even perhaps to the pagan empires over whom his heart yearned - more effective than any service he might have rendered in a longer life below."2

With her family by her side our beautiful mother passed on to her next journey, surrounded by love.

Her family was her all and rarely missed an event. She was also a sports fanatic and you didn’t call when football was on!!

She leaves her three daughters; Lynn Peters (Gary), granddaughter; Aaron Cooper (Gary) and their children; Jordan, Tessa, Tyler (Monique) and her great-great grandchildren; Brooklynn, Brayden and Briella; her grandson Mike Peters (Lindsey) and their sons Madden and Ryland and grandson Murray Peters(Julia) and their children Jackson and Jayla.
