Pastor of the New Monmouth Baptist Church Since October 1893 - He Leaves a Widow and Five children - Other Deaths.

Rev. P. A. H. Kline, the pastor of the New Monmouth Baptist church, died at that place yesterday morning at ten o'clock. The cause of his death was cancer of the spleen. He was 49 years old. Mr. Kline was born in Prussia, Germany, and came to this country when he was five years old. He was ordained a minister at Summit, N. J., in 1888, where he had his first charge. He remained there three years and then went to Clinton, where he was pastor of the Baptist church there for eight years. In October, 1893, he went to New Monmouth. His health had been poor since he first took charge of the church at New Monmouth, but he was not confined to his bed for any length of time. On the first of June he preached in his church, expecting to take a vacation from then until the first of October, the pulpit in the interim to be supplied by friends of the pastor. This was his last service in the church. Mr. Kline was a man much beloved by his congregation, and his death is a great loss to his many friends. He leaves a widow and five children. The funeral will take place from the church at eleven o'clock on Friday morning, and the interment will be in Evergreen cemetery, Elizabeth.
