From the Madera (California) Trib
une we learn additional particulars con
cerning Rev. Z. C. Rush, whose death has
already been recorded in The Journal.
He had been in ill health for about a
year past and the last week or two had
failed quite rapidly, so much so that he j
had expressed the belief that he would
not last long. He went to Madera in
1891, and founded the Baptist church
there. He accepted a call from the Bap
tist church at Albion, Nebraska, his old
home, about two years since, but bis
health failing,.he returned to California,
but did not again enter the ministry.
He was a native of Pennsylvania, aged
66 years and 2 months, and leaves a wife
and four sons.
