Aaron O. Askew Dead: The LEDGER records with sorrow the death of Aaron O. Askew, esquire, of Askewsville. Last Sunday Mr. Askew felt unwell and took to his bed. On Monday he felt well enough to get up and dress, but soon retired. During Monday night his son called him and receiving no answer he went to the bed and found his father speechless. Mr. Askew never rallied. Kind friends and neighbors were in constant attendance at his bedside. He died Friday morning just before day. Mr. Askew was a brave Confederate soldier. His neighbors will miss him for he was truly a good friend. He was one of the best Democrats in the county and the party has lost a dutiful worker. His wife was Miss Janie Cherry, daughter of Solomon Cherry, esquire. M[r]. Askew leaves five children --A. O. Askew, Jr., Mrs. W. G. White, Solomon C. Askew, Edward O. Askew and Miss Janie C. Askew.

Dr. ANDREW J. ASKEW. Departed this life, at his residence in the county of Bertie on Wednesday the 30th day of September 1874, Dr. Andrew J. Askew, after a protracted illness of many months, in the 59th year of his age. . . . Dr. Andrew J. Askew in his early boyhood evinced a disposition for literary and professional life, and his means being ample to supply all his needs was placed at the best Institutions of learning in our State. After. . . preparation in the high school at Louisburg taught by Mr. Bobbett, one of the first educators in his day, he was matriculated in the University of North Carolina in the summer of 1835.
. . . After leaving the University of North Carolina, he entered upon the study of medicine under Dr. Cohoon who was then residing in the town of Winton in Hertford county. Completing his preparatory studies, he proceeded to Philadelphia, mat[ri]culating in the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in that renowned Institution, with much proficiency and with the enti[r]e respect and esteem of the learned Professors, whose lectures he had attended. . . .
Returning . . . he was married in the year 183- to Miss Mary Cross, of Hertford county, a most excellent and accomplished lady, and of high family and social position. He settled in the county of Bertie, on his patrimonial inheritance, the homestead of his father and mother, where he continued to reside . . . Endowed by nature, with a kind, gentle and cheerful disposition, unpretending and unostentatious in his manners seeking as the business o[f] his life, that greatest of all profession[s], which on its reaching, and deep-searching philanthrophy, and charity, delights in administering to, and alleviating the pains, suffering, and diseases of our poor frail, fallen and decaying humanity, Dr. Askew may in truth and justice, be called by the friends and neighbors around him the "good samaritan." . . . Dr. Askew sought that retirement and peace in his rural home, surrounded by his neighbors and friends by whom he was [b]eloved and esteemed, and could their tears, sympathies and prayers have prevailed, he would now be living amon[g]st them. For thirty five years or more of his life did Dr. Askew devote his best energies, his skillful learning, and his entire attention to the p[r]actice of his profession.
Over a large section of t[h]e counties of Bertie and Hertford, in sun-shine and in storm, in heat and cold, could this good man be seen, ev[e]r hastening to the house of sickness, suffering and distress!  . . .he became a christian, and connected himself with the Baptist church. . .He was the friend and promoter of all the educational, benevolent, and charitable Institutions, which have been built up, and fostered by the great christian denomination of which he was a devout and consistent member. He leaves a widow, and numerous family of children and grand-children, and many connections of the most respectable families in the counties of Bertie and Hertford. . . .He was a kind and affectionate husband, a tender father, a good brother, a sincere friend, a skillful and self-sacrificing Physician, and faithful neighbor, and true and consitant christian. . .

In Memoriam.
Died at Pitch Landing on the 29th of July, 1877, age 27 years, John E. Askew. He was the oldest son of the late, beloved and lamented Dr. A. J. Askew and his wife, Mary. The stay and hope of a widowed mother is gone; a large family smitten with woe and the whole [co]mmunity shocked in the suddenness of an irreparab[l]e loss. The young man thus struck down on the very threshold of his manhood was brave and comely, and full of promise for the future. Hundreds of his friends gathered to his burial and by their tears, gave proof of the hold the dead youth had won in public affection. In his brief illness he expressed much sorrow that the Savior had been so little in his previous thoughts, but peace was his in the last sorrowful hour. Hope came to him in his agony and lighted with a beautiful smile a face that grew in death as that of an angel. O[h] deep and wond[r]ous mystery of God! What blessed compensatisn is thus born in even the darkest providence? But alas! John E. Askew has come and gone and nothing is left but the memory of his gracious and manly virtues. May God give peace to his ashes and comfort to his sorrowing friends.
