Death of Levi Bouslog1810 - 1894
Springfield, Mo. Republican May 1894
In early life he was united with the Christian Church at Hillsboro, Ind., and lived an honorable Christian for many years in which time he prospered beyond his own expectations and accumulated considerable wealth, but like many others in times of prosperity, he forgot him from whom cometh all the blessings of life and wandered from paths of righteousness and while engaged in business in co-partnership with other men they failed financially, the burden of their loss falling heavily upon him, Thus again he was brought to realize the need of a savior and friend, one who would stand by him in adversity as well as prosperity, which but few, very few, as he has learned to his sorrow, earthly friends would do. He was again reinstated into the fellowship of the brethren at the same church where he had formerly been a member. He was a friend of the poor and noted for many charitable deeds to those in adverse circumstances of life.
The wild raging storms of his life are all o'er
Calmly, sweetly rests his spirits for evermore.
Forever, Oh! Forever, his spirit winged its flight
into the presence of God's eternal love and light.
