Hon. Samuel W. Oliver,
My Friends:--We have assembled for a very solemn purpose.  To pay the last tribute and respect to the memory of a departed friend and to shed the last tear of affection on the grave which now contains him.  To follow near our fellow beings to the habitation of the dead is at al times a serious service, in the present circumstances it is peculiarly so.  In one fatal moment by deplorable accident, our lamented friend has been hurried from time into eternity.  He has been cut off in the morning of life, amidst the highest promises or usefulness.

In the death of General Greening, the community has sustained a heavy loss--his neighbors and acquaintances have been deprived of a distinguished friend--and his family has suffered a bereavement that is irreparable.

Was it not impious to question the devices of providence, we would appeal to the almighty ruler of events, and ask why was it permitted, why was it that this bitter cup could not be passed by?--though my friends, in this a dispensation, we may read how uncertain, how unsubstantial are all worldly prospects.  The highly esteemed individual whose death we now so much lament, had within him all that we usually think necessary to complete our earthly blessedness.  His virtues and intelligence had already given him an elevated rank in public estimation;  as a politician his course had been ratified by the applause of fellow citizens;  as a lawyer his promise and integrity had inspired the confidence of all;  in the walks of private and domestic life by his amiable and agreeable deportment and acquired the respect and esteem of all who knew him.  But alas, neither his assets, virtues, or his capacity to be serviceable to his fellow-men could stay the hand of the inestimable archer death.  He has descended to an early grave, attended by the regret and heart felt sorrow of a numerous circle of friends

To his disconsolate wife and relatives we would say even in this afflicting catastrophe there is something from which they may derive consolation;  he has not left behind one blemish on his escutcheon--with the record of him there is not associated a single vice.   In conduct, he was pure and exemplary; in time his infant children may be pointed to a just model for imitation to the character and conduct of their father.

But, my friends, while we solemnly mourn the loss of him over whom the grave is closed--while we deeply sympathize with the distressed family, let us not fail to be impressed by the warning, which this melancholy event so loudly inculcates.  Let us not fail to be deeply impressed by what a frail te__ we enjoy this life.  None can tell what a day may bring forth--in the morning proud in promise, rich in future hopes, and before night we be like the withered grass before the mowing sickle.  As the dew of the morning and the herbage of the field, so man passeth and is no more.

To us who constituted his immediate friends and associates, while we bewail his untimely end, let us endeavor to imitate his virtue that like him, even in death we may be ___ed.  Let us by clearly adhering to the precepts of religion (when the vain days of this world, as to us, shall have ended) and  endeavor to rise triumphant with the prospect of a blessed immortality.


THIS DATE in Alabama History-by W. J. Boles -Nov 28, 1839

While on the way to  Pensacola on a business trip ,Eldridge S. Greening, youthful politician and office holder, and candidate for Congress, was accidentally killed when thrown from his buggy which ran against a tree by the roadside.  He was born in 1798 and died in 1828 in Conecuh County where he located and began the practice of law in his early twenties.  He was a great grandson** of a Revolutionary  War soldier, and son of a man prominent in the political life of the Carolinas.   At the age of 23 he was elected to represent Conecuh County in the State Legislature and after one term as county solicitor was elected to the Legislature in 1825 and again in 1827.  He was a candidate for representative of Congress in 1828 when his accidental death cut short his career before he had reached the prime of life.  He is said to have been a man of outstanding ability, popular with the people and with a future that promised great things for him politically.
