"During his second year in Newfield he was stricken with paralysis, from
which he slowly rallied until, eighteen months later, a second shock compelled
him to resign his pastorate. He then returned to Cochituate, where, amid
many friends, he spent the rest of his life. On Dec. 30, 1893, he had a
third paralytic shock, from the effect of which he died in ten days.
During this last sickness, with the exception of the last two days of
unconsciousness, his mind was clear, his faith in Christ unwavering, and his ;ove
and confidence in his faithful companion and co-laborer for thirty years
commanding. He could not ne too grateful to God for all she was to him and
had done for him. Mr. Nottage had a sunny disposition, a studious mind
well developed and stored, an unfailing faith in the Bible as the inspired word
of God, and in Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour, great love for the
Methodist Episcopal Church, and a holy ambition to promote the welfare of
man. He was an excellent preacher and faithful pastor, a public minded
citizen, winning strong supporters in each of his pastorates, and his memory is
cherished today by a large circle of choice friends." - Memoir in Zion's
Herald by Rev. N. T. Whitaker.
