(*) The following obituary from Greenville, S. C., newspaper, was omitted in the notice of Isaac Hoyt1795 Benedict, son of Peter5 (51), on page 304.
Mr. Benedict was a native of Danbury, Ct., but had been for more than twenty years a citizen of our town. His character was distinguished by those sterling virtues, which led him to do good to all around him, and won for him the reputation of an honest man. For many years past he had been a member and Deacon of the Baptist church, in this place, and his life bore ample evidence to the sincerity of his profession. He has left a good name, and the memory of a long and virtuous life for the consolation of his children and numerous friends.
