MEMOIR OF THE LATE MRS. ANN FANSHAW,

OF ECKINGTON, NEAR SHEFFIELD.

By Mr. W. D. Harrison.

"The memory of the just is blessed." God evidently designs that "the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance;" and it is doubtless attributable to his Providence, that the church has been led from time to time to place upon record, the names of those who have been enabled, in the strength of grace, to combat successfully with the corruptions that are in the world, and in the human heart; and who, after having finished as hirelings their day, have left the field, triumphing over death, hell, and the grave.

Among those who have been so favoured, the name of Ann Fanshaw will long be remembered in Eckington, by the circle of her class-mates, and among her religious acquaintance, with feelings of the most lively interest and satisfaction.

Eckington was the place of her birth; and as she was not favoured with religious parents, no attempts were made to lead her infant mind to God, or to implant the seeds of early piety in her tender heart. Hence the corruptions of depraved nature which fhe brought with her into the world, strengthened with her strength, and grew with her growth, until, like mankind in general, she became thoughtless and unconcerned about her eternal welfare. The parents of the subject of this memoir being poor, when arrived at a proper age she was put out to service. Providence directed her path to a religious family in which she lived for several years, and was often observed to be much affected during family worship; but though oftentimes powerfully wrought upon, she resisted the Spirit, and refused to give her heart to God. At length she left her situation and united in marriage with an unsteady man; this proved to her a source of much suffering and trial all through life.

It is now nearly seven years since the Lord so powerfully convinced her of sin, that she saw and felt the necessity of being reconciled to him, through faith in the Redeemer, to an extent which she had not done
