Mrs. S.M. Anderson wife of Elder S.M. Anderson one of the ablest

Primitive Baptist divines

In this section, died at her home near Garfield Tuesday morning.

 

Mrs. Anderson had been ill for several weeks and the end was not

unexpected. She leaves a

Husband and several sons and daughters, all of whom are grown to mourn

her departure.

 

Mrs. Anderson had long been recognized as on of the best women of the

county. She was distinctly

a light to the community in which she lived and the influence of her

tender motherhood and many

lovable qualities spread far beyond her own immediate surroundings.

 

The greatest boon that God has ever given mankind is a noble Christian

woman. When she falls

asleep, the purest type of love and long suffering that He has given is

farewell.

Mrs. Sallie Skinner departed this life on February 14, 1902 at 1

o'clock.

 

The Lord took away our dear mother. It was so hard to give her up. She

was born March 1818 and died Feb 14, 1902

(this is on her tombstone), making her stay on earth 84 years, 1 month,

and some few days. She was a faithful member

of the Methodist church, she joined the church at eight years of age at

the Skinner church in South Carolina in which she

lived for 52 years. She always lived a Christian and raised her children

to love the Lord.

 

She was confined to her bed in January, she suffered greatly with heart

disease, she took her sickness meekly. The

beautiful smiles never left her face all through her sickness and would

tell us that angels were hovering around her

and would exclaim glory, for she was happy all the while. It is hard to

think I can never see my dear mother come to

my home on earth again but it is sweet to think I can meet her in

Heaven.

 

She prayed for all of her children and all her rising generation, that

they would all meet her in Heaven. She would sing

and shout all through her sickness. She was a good mother, and we never

will forget her long suffering. It was

heartrending to hear our dear old mother singing them. The last word she

said was glory.

 

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Chambers, her pastor, and

the one she loved so dearly. She leaves one daughter,

three sons and a host of relatives, friends, to mourn her loss.

Uncle Travis Hall died at the home of his daughter, Mrs Kate Wickstrum

last Monday. Uncle Travis was one of the oldest men in the county, being

about 90. He was one of the most liberal men that ever lived and

everybody that knew uncle Travis as he was, was his friend.

Friends throughout the county will learn with regret of the death of

Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, the wife of R.B. Thompson,

which occurred last night at her home at Kemp. Mrs. Thompson was the

daughter of John C. Hall. She had lived on the

same farm with Mr. Thompson for forty-five years. Death was the result

of paralysis.

 

Surviving are her five sons and five daughters: Mrs. J.G. Barnes, Mrs.

J. G. Baggett, Mrs. J.R. Flanders, Mrs. W.D. Beasley,

and Mrs. H.T. Thompson; and M.C. Thompson, C.H. Thompson, L.W. Thompson,

George A. Thompson, and I. G. Thompson.

 

The funeral was held Friday afternoon, Rev. E. R. Cowart officiating.

 

Mrs. Thompson will be mourned by many, as in her death the community

sustains a great loss.

Mrs. R. B. Thompson (nee Hall) died Dec. 14, 1916. She was married to

Mr. Thompson soon after the close of the Civil War, when

money was scarce and times were hard. She worked hard and was always

ready to lift her share of the burdens that lay before them.

She was the mother of ten children who with their father survive her.

She was a good wife, a good mother, a good neighbor, a good

friend, and a good Christian.

 

Oh, it was so hard to have to give her up, to see her carried out at the

door we had seen her go out of and come in all our lives,

when we knew it would be the last time she would pass thru, yet we feel

that we have been blessed to keep her as long as we did.

She was 78 years and 2 months old. We know that she is now in the Glory

world, resting from her labors, yes, mother's in heaven

with loved ones gone on before. Two little grandsons preceded her only a

few years and it seems we can almost see her fondling

and caressing them now. She's not a stranger there.

 

She lived only two days after she was taken sick and not being able to

swallow, or speak, we could do nothing for her, could not even

give her a drink of water, ah, and thought. But mother is now where she

will not thirst and is at rest.

 

She was her pastor's friend, we can't remember ever hearing her say

aught of her pastor.She always attended services when it was

possible for her to go. She was a good woman in sickness, as long as she

was able she visited the sick. In the last few years she

was not able to get out much but she was always inquiring after the

sick, it was still in her heart, but her body was too weak.

 

Cheer up children! Mother is not dead, she's just now beginning to live

the life that's promised to the saints. Oh,what a joyful thought.

 

Let's try to teach our children to travel the road that Mother traveled,

and one day to meet where partings will be no more.

 

Cheer up father! You know where she is. It wont be long, it may be soon.
