His obituary was published in The Free Church of Scotland Monthly Record, April 1 1869, p.90 and re-published on Ecclegen website: The Free Church of Scotland has lost another of her devoted sons, in the removal, by death, of the Rev. Cosmo Macpherson of Strathbraan and Dalguise. He died in the seventy-second year of his age, in the manse at Strathbraan, on the 13th of February last, after an illness of about six months.
Mr. Macpherson was a native of Tomintoul, in the parish of Kirkmichael, Banffshire, where he received the rudiments of his education. From the parish school he passed to the University and King’s College, Aberdeen, in which, with approbation, he concluded his literary, philosophical, and theological career as a student. A few years prior to the Disruption of 1843 he became a licentiate of the Established Church, and was soon thereafter appointed assistant to the Rev. Mr. Wilson of Aberdeen, where his faithful, evangelical ministrations were so much prized, that the parishioners marked their appreciation of them by the presentation of a handsome gold watch with suitable inscription, to which he ofttimes afterwards facetiously referred, as an indication, through his instrumentality, of the breaking up of the hard crust of Moderatism, in a district long subject to its baneful influence. During this period of his incumbency as assistant preacher, he and another of like mind were confirmed in their attachment to the principles of the Ten Years’ Conflict by the reading of the “Witness” newspaper, under the able editorship of Hugh Miller, whose services to the cause of Christ the Day will alone reveal. The two associates became ministers of the Free Church, one of whom still labours with success in the north of Scotland.
In 1845, after commending himself by his faithful labours to the adherents of the Free Church of Strathbraan and Dalguise, encouraged by the presence and powerful support of Lord Dalhousie, who then resided in that district, and who has laid the Free Church, there and elsewhere, under an immense debt of obligation, the subject of this notice was unanimously chosen and ordained as their pastor.
Mr. Macpherson was never possessed of much physical strength; yet with this manifest disadvantage, with unflagging zeal and unceasing diligence during the four-and-twenty years of his ministry, he laboured on at his post of duty—a post rendered arduous because of the necessarily scattered and divided nature of his flock— the two congregations being territorially separated by a distance of seven miles. The decay of strength consequent on the infirmities of advancing years, and the sure approaching footsteps of the last enemy, compelled him to withdraw from the field, till at length he, with assurance, committed his spirit into the hands of his blessed Redeemer.
Possessed of a well-balanced mind, with the intellectual and moral powers well proportioned, and these brought under the sanctifying power of Divine grace. Mr. Macpherson’s ministrations were ever intelligible, savoury, and practical. His pulpit addresses were the result of most careful study and preparation, of clear, accurate thinking, of a mind well stored with the good old theology of Reforming and Puritan divines; and above all, they bore evidence to a heart deeply imbued with the spirit of his Master and with the truth, whose lessons in their bearing on the details of Christian life were urged with all his characteristic energy and force of character; laid out, moreover, in well-arranged periods, and delivered in tones of impressive import.
In the spheres of domestic and social life, Mr. Macpherson was affectionate, kind, genial, generous, and unassuming. His brethren prized much his ministerial intercourse, and the Presbytery of Dunkeld testified their confidence in his business habits by conferring upon him the important office of the clerkship, the duties of which he most faithfully discharged to the last.
When God, in his adorable and all-wise providence, gave monitions to his servant of his approaching end, he was prepared; and throughout the course of his illness, with steadfast and unfaltering faith, waited calmly the hour of his decease. The last night of his life was spent much in silent prayer, apparently for strength and grace in passing the swellings of Jordan. Being made aware, a few hours before his departure, of an affecting trial, which rendered the bereavement doubly heavy to the family—the death of an infant daughter after a short illness—he thanked God that she had gone before; and in the near prospect of being welcomed by the tender ransomed spirit at the gates of the celestial city, he took a calm and peaceful farewell of his family and surrounding friends. He has left behind him a widow and six children.
