The Greene County Record, Quinque, VA

July 10,1902 “DEATH OF WILLIAM E. HARLOW” by J. E. H. (his son James Edward Harlow)

The venerable William E. Harlow is dead 76 years passed over his head On Tuesday, the 8th day of July, He bade his friends and home goodbye.

His life was almost void of sin. Sorrows and afflictions were known to him, And tho he sleeps beneath the sod, He lived obedient to his God.

Born of the humblest parentage, with poverty as his heritage. at the age of eight left Mother’s bed Alone to earn his lowly bread.

And when he got to be a man He married Miss Herring, Sarah Ann About 18 and 45. Eight children born, five still alive.

By occupation was a wheelwright, was at Manassas and Bull Run fight, And as the war came to a close, His wife took her final repose.

Was known around his native land As an exemplary Christian man. Was a Baptist, but not out and out As to communion had some doubt.

Had many lines of scripture read, And many requiem anthems said, And held in reverence everywhere, The subject of our faith and prayer.

He gladly bore his master’s yoke And no untruthful sentence spoke. Said he did not fear to die And before the angels testify.

In the mystic order, accepted and free A Mason raised to high degree, And by that order, grand and just, And was returned again “dust to dust”.

He was living in Charlottesville, in 1882, when the cornerstone was laid for the original Congregation Beth Israel synagogue on Market and Second Street at the current site of the Jefferson Madison Regional Library. It was the first synagogue in this region of Virginia; he helped build this synagogue.
