  • Notes 
    • Liberty Journal, August 18, 1909

      Embley Mount was born in Warren county, Ohio, 12 September 1829 and departed this life, 6 August 1909, aged 80 years, 10 months and 19 days. He emigrated with his parents to Knox county, Illinois about the year 1836. He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Axtell, 28 August 1852, to whom were born six children, one of the children having preceded him to the spirit world and five of them are still living - all of whom were present at the bedside.

      Brother Mount dedicated his life to God in early manhood, and was a faithful and loyal worker in his vineyard all the days of his life. Those who knew Brother Mount knew him only as a noble-hearted Christian, and he will be greatly missed by all - especially in the home. His last sickness was of quite a duration and at times the suffering intensse, yet all was borne with such patience as only a Christian could command.

      Brother Mount has only begun to live, for he leaves a bright testimony behind that he was going home to heaven to live with Jesus and the many relatives and friends who had preceded him to that glorious place which Christ has gone to prepare for all of his faithful followers. He did not leave unexpectedly to himself, but as one going on a journey made all preparations necessary for his leave.

      The funeral service was conducted in the Methodist Episcopal Church by his former pastor, G.G. Morrison, of Reynolds, assisted by the pastor of the church, and the pastor of the Baptist church, text being Romans 8-16. He was laid to rest in the Liberty cemetery, there to await the resurrection morn when soul and body will be reunited and come forth in robes of righeousness.
