npon his wife's lap, and in 10 minutes passed away.

for 25 years; worked in the JAHVille Colonv for those 25
'years, and was a faithful member all during this time.
He stood asja giant oak of the forest, fur Christ and His
Cause. And on .the 3rd. at 3 O'clock, there wa3 over ono
; hundred followed him to hi last resting place.
His Funeral services was conducted by Rev, L, S. Garrett.

With flowers upon his grave.
