Obituary and Biographical Detials

From Cabell’s Sketches and Recollections:

JOHN VICTOR was a member of the same [Reformed Methodist] Church, and was a connection of the Winfree family, having married Mary, the oldest daughter of Dr. Tilden. Mr. Victor was a native of Fredericksburg; but removing with his parents to Lynchburg when very young, he was for many years the principal jeweller and silversmith of the upper country; and an old-fashioned spoon, marked “Williams and Victor,” forcibly recalls the period when, with wonder and admiration, the windows and show-cases of this establishment were contemplated; bringing to mind also the time when, with his sweet, excellent wife by his side, he might be seen entering the house of God. When there, his zeal in the services of the sanctuary, and his mild, holy countenance, showed that his thoughts were far withdrawn from worldly concerns, and centred wholly in contemplation of heavenly things.
