"I do not believe in the transmission of grace, but in my anxious desire and hope with regard to myself, as a child of God, I can not but feel a lively satisfaction that the whole of my mother's family, so far as I know of them, were godly people. I knew my maternal grandmother and can testify as to her pious living and hopeful dying. The journal of my grandfather, Jacob Yoer, breathes throughout the spirit of divine grace, which accords with the evidence of my noble mother, who never tires of her praises of her father's deep and devoted spiritual character. He counseled his children to read the Bible on their knees. They were both Charlestonians by birth and members of the First Baptist Church of that city. Their remains are lying in the yard of that church.
