Excerpt from Semi-Centennial Celebration: Rev. D. Goodwillie, D.D. Pastor, of the United Presbyterian Congregation, of Liberty, Trumbull County, Ohio, From 1825 to 1875
But amid all these changes the pastor of this church has stood faithfully at his post. The generation to whom he, at first preached went down, one by one to the tomb; but when the fathers were gone, he preached to their children. As the years rolled on many of them passed to the other shore. Many too moved to other homes. They were scattered far and wide into almost all parts of the land, but still he kept on telling the wonderful story of the cross to them that remained. Truly He has instructed many. There are'men here, whose heads are whitening for the tomb, who can say I heard him preach when I was a boy. There are those here, well on in the journey of life, who can say he was the first minister I ever heard preach. What a multitude has been blessed by his ministry I What a work he has done! We praise God for it to-day.. True, we honor the man and esteem him very highly in love for his works sake, but I am sure he can say to-day with all his heart, not only, By the grace of God I am what I am, but, also, by the grace of God I have done what I have done. And we praise Him to-day who has made him faithful and kept him and the noble wife of his youth and partner of his labors through all these long years. Having therefore obtained help of the Lord he has continued to this day.
