-Lex BIGGERS, the little son of Mr. E. R. BIGGERS of Unionville, died Saturday morning at five o’clock.  He had been sick since before Christmas and suffered a great deal.  The little fellow was about 12 years old.  The body was buried at Hopewell Sunday.

 

[3] -Monroe Journal, Friday, February 2, 1923

 

-Resolutions of Respect – On the 2nd day of January, 1823, God in hid Allwise Providence saw fit to call from our midst Brother Clegg Crowell who was a faithful member of Hopewell Baptist church and one of the most loyal supporters of the Berean class of our Sunday school. Clegg was stricken with a lingering disease more than three years ago but he bore his affliction with Christian fortitude….

[4] -OBITUARY OF ELIZA JANE PRICE CROWELL

For The Enquirer.  On August 16, 1910, God in His infinite wisdom and goodness saw fit to send the dread messenger of death into the home of Mr. J. L. Crowell and claim as His own, his mother, Mrs. Jane Crowell, who had reached four score and one years.  Aunt Jane, as she was usually called, was the widow of John W. Crowell, who gave his life in the service of his country during the bloody conflict of ‘64-5.  Left broken-hearted as she was during those dark days of strife and bloodshed, with seven small children dependent upon her for support, she did not succumb under those dark hours of adversity but succeeded not only in providing a living for her children, but implanted firmly in their tender minds all those principles for which they are so much admired.  She had been a true member of Hopewell Baptist church ever since its organization and developed into a strong Christian character.  The death of this good woman has thrown a deep gloom over the entire community in which she lived.  The life that she lived was a credit not only to herself but a great benediction to all who knew her, and especially devoted to the care of the sick, and her good qualities shown forth as she administered to the wants of suffering and sorrowing humanity.  There is a vacancy in the home, in the church and in the community in which she lived that can never be filled, but her influence still lives.

            The members of the family who bow in sorrow are two sons, Messrs. E. H. and J. L. Crowell, and four daughters, Mesdames Mary Sutton. Margarette Griffin, Martha Connell and Malissa Bradford; fifty-five grandchildren and fifty great grandchildren.

            Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. M. D. L. Preslar, in the presence of a host of friends her body was laid to rest at its last resting place in Hopewell cemetery.

            While our hearts bleed with sorrow, we rejoice in the hope that her parting from this life means a birth into life eternal where nothing shall mar its beauty but where happiness shall reign supreme. May our lives be such that when we shall have conquered the last great enemy, we may see  Aunt Jane face to face and join her in giving everlasting praise to Jesus eternal in heaven

            “Servant of god, well done,

            Rest from thy love employ;

            The battle fought, the victory won,

            Enter the Master’s joy.” 

                                                A Nephew
