Mr. Pavey was born in Devonshire,England, September 4th, 1821. He came with his parents to Woodstock, Canada, in 1832, living there until 1866, when he moved to Illinois and from Illinois here in 1875. Deacon Pavey experienced religion and joined the Baptist church in 1836, and since that time he has ever been a sincere and working Christian and died in full hope of being and reigning with the Master that he has so long served. Mr. Pavey leaves a wife and a large number of children and grandchildren to mourn his loss. They have the sympathy of the whole community in their breavement.
