Asbury, third child of James and Mary Bazill was born in Loudon County, Virginia, August 22nd, 1853, and passed away October 10, 1931. Aged 78 years, 1 month and 19 days. He moved with his parents to Ohio when he was only 8 years old, and has ever since been a resident of this state. On December 26th, 1872 he was united in marriage to Elmira Catherine Marlin. To this union two children were born: Wilbur William, who passed away in 1895 at the age of 21 years, and Miss Myra Belle of Bradford, Ohio. Eighteen years ago Mr. and Mrs. Bazill took into their home a niece Miss Pauline Marlin who has been a part of the home circle. Six years ago the wife and mother was called home to glory. During these years, the home had been lovingly cared for by the faithful daughter and niece. On July 6th, 1923 brother Bazill and family united with the Covington Church of the Brethren. He lived most of his active life near Bradford. He was noted for his fine Christian character and was highly esteemed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He was always interested in the church and was a loyal member of the Men's Bible Class. In active life he was a carpenter and served the Pa. R. R. as house foreman for 25 years. He was an accurate builder. In his passing the family loses a loving father; the church a loyal member; and the community a kind friend and neighbor. Besides the daughters the only other immediate survivor is his brother Charles Bazill of Dayton, Ohio.
His body will be laid to rest by the side of his companion in Highland Cemetery at Covington, Ohio.
One less at home-
The charmed circle broken; a dear face
Missed day by day from its accustomed place;
But cleaned and saved and perfected by grace.
One more in heaven,
One more at home,
This is not home, where cramped in earthly mold,
Our sight of Christ is dim, our love is cold;
But then, face to face we shall behold,
Our home and heaven.
One less on earth!
