Dr. William Wendel Searcy

M, b. 21 March 1810, d. 22 March 1874
     Dr. William Wendel Searcy was born on 21 March 1810 at Nashville, Davidson Co., TN. He was the son of Col. Robert Searcy and Elizabeth Wendel. Dr. William Wendel Searcy was graduated on 29 March 1832 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA; University of Pennsylvania Medical College

University of Pennsylvania matriculation records, 29 Oct 1915."In the matriculation records of the School of Medicine, there is an entry for William Searcy that indicates that he entered the School of Medicine in the fall of 1831 and received his M.D. degree on March 29, 1832. The entry also states that he came from Davidson, Tennessee. There is also a very small file on Searcy in our Alumni Records Collection. It contains a three-page questionnaire on Searcy filled out by his daughter, Josephine Searcy Green, in 1915. He married Emeline Malone Johnson, daughter of Benjamin Johnson, on 30 May 1833 at Williamson Co., TN. Dr. William Wendel Searcy died on 22 March 1874 at the home of his daughter Mrs. John Bysor, on White's Creek Pike, Davidson Co., TN, at age 64 Angel Family Records - Diane Wyman Brenum, brenum@earthlink.net. "Dr. William Wendel was born March 21, 1810, in Nashville, Tenn., and died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. John Bysor, in Davidson co., Tenn., March 22, 1874. If he were present with us in the flesh, he would emphatically disclaim against a fulsome eulogy for he was the soul of modesty and a stranger to vanity. It would be extravaqgant of me to affirm, that, as far as poor human nature would permit, he walked in all the ordinances and commandments of the Lord blameless. An old friend, who had known him long and well, remarked that "he had never known a man of stricter integrity." An honorable, high-toned man of the old school, he would not stoop to a mean thing. He never violated a contract, and his promises were all fulfilled. His word, whether spoken in haste or with deliberation, was indelible and unchangeable as his signature. He had but one character, he was a Christian and a gentleman at home with his family, and he was the same man abroad. He graduated in medicine with the highest honors at the University of Pennsylvania in 1831. Devoted to his profession, and fond of refined literature, he was a close, untiring student up to the day of his fatal illness. No subject could be breached in science or theology with which he was not familiar. His contributions to medical journals (of which he furnished many, years ago) was elegant in diction and displayed fine literary taste, and were univerallly read with approval by the profession. At the time of his death he was (and had been for many years) a member of the M. E. Church South. Early in life he became a student and admirer of the works of Emanuel Swedenborg. He told me that he regarded the philosophy of Swedenborg as a beautiful science, that presented the relations between God and Nature by its charming correspondences more perfectly and lucidly than any other system. He stated to me, time and again, that "he did not think it was the wish or intention of Swedenborg that a visible Church should be constructed out of his teachings; and he regretted that a beautiful science, that should be the common posession of all the Churches, should be merged into one sect." He performed all the duties imposed by the Church to which he belonged, and his board was free to the itenerant preacher. His enjoyments were with his wife and children at home - there he was happy and contented. A few years since his wife, a pure Christian woman, went over into the Promised Land. The strong man was staggered by this blow, and he has been praying and longing to di[------] since. Death was but a joyous transition [-----]n; he talked of death as the Gate of Life. He was conscious to the last moment and testified that the Valley and Shadow of Death was illumined. With the exception of two - an absent boy and girl living in distant States - his children were about him when he died; he leaves to them a precious legacy - a good name and a beautiful memory. W. M. Green.
