Death of a Good Colored Citizen (Obituary from Union-Recorder, July 6, 1886)
July DeSauseaure, an aged resident of this city and a minister of the Colored Methodist Church South, died at his residence on Monday the 21st inst., after a long season of bad health. He was during slavery times a trusted and esteemed servant of the late Col. David C. Campbell, of this place, and as long as he lived he retained and manifested his affection for the children of his former master; a feeling of regard which was reciprocated by them. He was a man much above the average of his race in intelligence and good judgement and we never heard of his using these endowments for any other than good purposes. The last time he came from his home in the suburbs down into the business part of our city was on the day when he cast his vote at the polls in favor of prohibition. He was probably about eighty years of age and was buried in our cemetery, his remains having been attended by a large concourse of his people to their last resting place.
