Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 17 Nov 1898

Death has again made its inroads upon the Pisgah Community and taken one of its best citizens. Jacob M. Bass departed this life on Nov. 7th. He came of two of Giles County's best families. the leading characteristics of his father's family are conviction, determination, honest and honor. Upon the part of the mother's family came peace, gentleness, prudence, sobriety. In the early afternoon of life he passed out from the walks of men to answer the summons from beyond the rive of live. He was my neighbor and friend. From childhood happy hours up to 36 years of age, when he folded his arms in death, I knew him. 'Tis not extravagant neither a lavish compliment to say I never knew a purer man. Through the mirror of retrospection I have surveyed his life since death. I never knew of any one speaking unkindly of him. Peace and prudence seemed to have been his watch words in life. Such a rich character as his is not the product of an hour or day, neither a week or a year but an abundant accumulation of a life time. Several years ago realizing that his morals and up-rightness would not meet the full measurement of time and eternity he professed religion and thereafter lived a most exemplary life. He was the nephew of Esq. J. Miller Bass and Uncle Jimmie Bass. May God in his abundant mercy and love bind up the sorrowing hearts of his devoted wife and brothers. May they rejoice in the fact that he has lived in their midst to leave the lamp lights of live burning all along the journey of life to guide them alright if they only prove faithful.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 20 Oct 1904

On the morning of October 5, 1904, Capt. B. M. Burch passed quietly away. He was born August 2, 1836, and departed this life October 5, 1904, age 68 years, 2 months and 3 days. His remains were laid to rest at Pisgah in the presence of his sorrowing family, one only, his youngest son, being absent in Texas. He was married Dec. 2, 1862 to Miss Mary M. Black, who together with her eight children survive him. During their wedded life of 42 years, death had never invaded their home until deceased passed away. He professed religion at New Zion 18 years ago, and  joined the Methodist Church at Friendship. His was an unusually quiet life. He lived not to be praised of by the world, or to win honor as the world calls honor, but passed the days as they came and went in peacefully and quietly discharging his duties as he conscientiously saw them. His life was based upon principles of right and wrong. He loved his fellowman and trusted him completely. He was a pure man, honest and truthful; free from all cunning and deceit. He was patient, long suffering, kind and benevolent. No one called upon him in vain when he was able to help. For the past eight or ten years of his life his mind has been impaired, hardly perceptible at first, but as each year passed leaving him worse than the preceding one, until he finally became totally unconscious of what he did. He became in his last days very restless and would wander from home in all kinds of weather, regardless of the entreaties of his family. Not being able to care for him properly at home he was carried last August to Central Hospital, Nashville. He was doing well until Sunday before his death, when he suddenly fell due to heart trouble to which he never rallied. A good husband, a kind father and a harmless citizen has gone, and God in his tender love and mercy has taken him home.

      Obituary: Pulaski Citizen Thursday January 20, 1910 "In Memory of Charlie Harwell"
I want to offer my humble tribute to the memory of that excellent Christian man, Charlie Harwell, who died Dec. 18, 1909, aged 40 years, 9 months, after lingering seven weeks with typhoid fever. He professed religion at Pisgah when only sixteen years of age and lived a consistent Christian life. He was a man of fine character, with a kind and sweet disposition, always cheerful and seemed to be happy, and tried to make everybody about him happy. Of course, he had his troubles like other men, also sorrow and grief, temptations and disappointments but was so confident of the fact that "all things work together for good to those that love the Lord," that he always looked on the bright side of every thing. He was always willing and ready to help those that needed help. He was conscious until the very last and left this testimony. "I'm going he; the battle has been fought and the victory won, and I can meet God in peace." With true Christian heroism he approached the grave, "like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams." When the end came it was sweetly calm and beautifully peaceful. Tis a sad thought to realize that he is dead, but we must not think of him as being dead, but just sleeping. How sweet it is for him to awake in that beautiful home on high, where parting, sickness, sorrow and death will never come. May God bless the wife, father, mother, brother and sisters and help them to realize that God, "doeth all things well."

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 11 May 1893

At the zenith of a life of good deeds, the “Silent Messenger” came to claim his own in the person of the venerable H. L. Harwell, who passed from earth last Thursday, May 4, at the home of his son, Mr. W. B. Harwell, at Pisgah. He was 79 years old and at the time of his death, and his life went out peacefully and quietly, like the lamp which had shed a radience to guide the feet of mankind in the path of duty, and then having served its purpose, ceased to shine. At the Prospect Camp Ground in 1835, he made a profession of religion and his life ever after was characterized by that piety, fortitude and integrity the is becoming in a follower of the meek and lowly Nazarene. In the year of 1844 he married Miss Mary C. Lester, a woman of rarely equaled intellectual power, which shone as a brilliant luminary in her spiritual as well as temporal life. The funeral was preached by Rev. J. G. Molloy, Friday, at the residence at Pisgah, with a large attendance of sorrowing friends and relatives. Mr. Harwell leaves two sons, Messrs., E. T. Harwell, of Prospect, and W. B. Harwell of Pisgah and a daughter, Mrs. C. A. Ralston, of Lester’s Station, and a large circle of warm friends to mourn his death. The Citizen joins these friends in sympathy for those left behind

Obituary: Citizen 12 Nov 1924 Woodrow & Frankewing “Dr. Love”

Death has again removed one of our old fashioned land marks in the person of Mrs. Harwell who departed this life Nov. 3, 1924, at the home of her only son, Walter Harwell, where she had been an invalid for some time. We wrote a sketch of her about twelve months ago. But now she rests from all her labors and sorrows, and is living in that bright world where they need no write ups for all that we could ever do or say for her has been done and said. The beautiful floral offering that decorated her grave came too late for her to see.. We can cheer the living but never the dead. Therefore we prefer to write them up while they are living and can appreciate what we say about them. We find this style of flowers has proven satisfactory for the living as well as for ourselves. If we cannot all write we can visit the sick and take them flowers and speak words of cheer and comfort before they pass through the dark valley and shadow of death. For there is no human light that can penetrate that valley. But if we have faith in Him who burst the bars of death and rose a triumphant conqueror over death, hell and the grave. We can find light in the valley of death as thousands have done who believed in the Divine bridges that Jesus built for us to cross from mortality to immortality. She leaves one son, and one daughter, Mrs. Walter Smith, twenty-one grandchildren and four great-grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Jim Samuels. In the absence of her pastor, services were held at Pisgah by the Rev. J. R. Parsons of Pulaski, where she was buried beside her husband, Cape Harwell.

On last Saturday morning June 27, just as the day was dawning the death angel lowered its wings in our community and claimed for its flower Miss Irma Keltner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Keltner. Miss Keltner was born Jan. 23, 1888. She joined the M. E. Church South in early childhood. For several years she has held a position in Pulaski, until last year, her health was such that she came home to spend the winter months. As time passed before she died she became reconciled that her stay on earth could not be long. In a talk to her pastor she says, “I haven’t any malice in my heart toward anyone.” She prepared for death as though she would a visit. During the last few days of her illness she told the family that she had an ambition to do something for her Lord. She was anxious to help poor little children. Miss Keltner had a host of friends who are sorely bereaved of her departure. She was loved by all who knew her. The death of this young lady should be a warning that death comes to the young as well as the aged. Weep not loved ones who have no hope, but let each of try to live so to meet her in a better world where no tears are shed where no more partings and goodbyes ever come. She is survived by her father and mother, one sister, Miss Janie and two brothers, Forest of Alabama and Clarence of this place. The funeral was conducted Sunday at 12 o’clock at this place by Rev. J. R. Holmes, and was attended by a large host of sympathetic friends and relatives. The grave was covered with many and beautiful florals. The family have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad hours of bereavement.

there, Monday afternoon. Dr. Lancaster lived at Pisgah all his life, and succeeded his father who was a merchant and practicing physician there before him. Dr. Lancaster is survived by his wife, and a son, his brother and sisters have preceded him to the beyond.

     Pulaski Citizen March 17, 1937 In Memory of Dr. G. W. Lancaster

The Pisgah Community was much saddened by the passing of Dr. Lancaster. He lived practically all his life at Pisgah--the little village he so greatly loved: and for around fifty years he practiced his profession. One cannot calculate in material means the inestimable good this kind Samaritan did in administering to the sick. He was a missionary indeed--having gone through hot and cold-- much of his life's work was without compensation. He was not a perfect man--he had his faults, as you and I, but there was never a more devoted father and husband. The Doctor was a man of culture and refinement, having read and studied until near the end, and it made him flexible to any form of society. The people will miss this useful, kind and sympathetic man, for the services he rendered to all classes was great. May God bless and care for his family. Allen Aymett, Sr.

Death is one blow that has to come whether soon or late. Which came to the home of Mrs. M. L. Loyd, March 1st 1902 and bade her loving son, Jimmie close his eyes which he was willing and ready to go. Jimmie was in his twenty-first year. Just in the youth of manhood he was taken sick last Monday with pneumonia and brain fever of which he suffered until death. Oh! how his sweet voice and smiles will be missed at home, but one more voice added to the great chorus above where there are3 loved ones gone before. Jimmie was a quiet and an unpretentious young man and always made it a rule to attend strictly to his own business. It does not seem possible that one so young and noble and true promising to be so useful in the affairs of life to be selecte4d as a target of death. He was a highly respected young man and he will be sadly missed by his friends in the entire community. He was one of those pleasant, warm-hearted young men whose company was always enjoyed and appreciated. He will not be forgotten by his many friends left behind, when some day we all expect to meet on that happy shore. A more obedient, affectionate and devoted son the writer never knew. His remains were brought to Pisgah for burial Sunday at 2 p. m. where there was a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn his death. Burial services were conducted by Rev. J. J. Shaw. The writer extends sympathy to the heart-broken family.

      Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 24 Jan 1934
On the evening of January 10th just as the golden sun faded into oblivion beneath the rosy tinted west, the silver cord of life broke and let the sweet life of Mrs. Albert Marks slip gently into eternity relieving her tired body of its pain and suffering. The Divine Will often goes perpendicular to ours and we bow in humble submission, but hard indeed it is to see one of our best and truest spirited away. But if we could push back the veil that intervenes and behold the other side! “Over there lies the land of fadeless day, it shall never pass away and they count not time by years for there is no night there.” Mrs. Marks’ life was one of consecration and good works. Her home was a place one always found a welcome and a congenial Christian atmosphere that was a blessingand benediction. She was possessed with a strong moral and Christian character that so lived and died that her life was an example for others. Few women ever gave more that was noble and good and asked or expected less in her quiet wasy from the world. As to duty and real Christianity, she had no superior and on the Resurrection morn when Jesus comes in all His glory, the gates of Heaven shall surely open wide for her. Death is not a final severance but only a parting for awhile. Mrs. Marks is with that innumerable company that no one could number. Her body sleeps in the silent city of the dead. Her spirit has gone to the God who gave it. She is supremely happy and forever free from the sorrow of earth, waiting for loved ones and friends to join her. Yes, dear friend you have passed over the river, your suffering is all over. You will sorrow and sigh no more but rest peacefully in the sweet beyond. Tarry by the throne, dear friend, till we join you there in the eternal homestead of our God, we shall again live together. “It is enough, earth’s struggles shall cease and Jesus calls us to Heaven’s perfect peace.  Mrs. Marks is survived by her husband, Mr. Albert Marks; two children, Catherine and Knox; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Shields Gunter; and two sisters, Miss Bass Gunter, Mrs. Van Ayres; two brothers, Bryan Gunter and Leonard Gunter. Funeral services were held at Pisgah Church Thursday at 2 p.m., Rev. Burden conducted the services assisted by Mr. Estep. The tired body was laid to rest in the Pisgah Cemetery.

Obituary: Citizen-Press 30 Nov 2004

The Rev. Shugart Martin, 92, of Pulaski died Nov. 28, 2004, at Meadowbrook Nursing Home. His life was a sermon. The reverend was retired as a United Methodist minister of the Tennessee Conference. He was a graduate of Hiwassee College, Emory and Henry College and he received a bachelor of divinity and master of divinity from Vanderbilt University School of Divinity. He served churches in the Hiwassee and Addilynn Circuit, Elm Street, Gallatin First and Savannah First in the Tennessee Conference. He wrote the proposal, which was later adopted by the Tennessee Conference, to “find ways to implement the decision of the Supreme Court of the U.S. and to lead us in abolishing any inequities that exist between the races in each of our communities.” The resolution did away with segregation by abolishing the Central Jurisdiction. Mr. Martins’s Christ-like ways led him through the trenches to the heights of humanity, where his love for God and others knew no bounds. He loved preaching the gospel and being a pastor to everybody. As he dedicated his life to others, countless numbers were drawn to his shining spirit, beaming smile and outstretched arms of friendship. He was, indeed, greatly loved by all who knew this kind “little man” who stood tall of character, faith and love. He was a good and gentle man, a faithful servant whose life made a real difference. He was preceded in death by his wife of 69 years, Sarah Margaret Melton Martin. Funeral services will be held at noon, Wednesday, Dec. 1, at Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church with the Rev. Maurice Moore, the Rev. Linda Tidrow, the Rev. Thurman Tidrow, the Rev. John Anderson and the Rev. Bettye Lewis officiating. His body will lie in state from 11 a.m.-noon at the church. Burial will be in Pisgah U.M. Church Cemetery. Survivors include daughters, Janice McKinney of Pulaski and Judy Dale of Slidell, La.; daughter-in-law, Fran Martin of Lebanon; sister, Frances Cook of Nashville; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 20 Feb 1908

Death has visited the Pisgah Community and claimed for its victim I. V., 19 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. A. Newton. I. V. has suffered since last summer with tuberculosis, but bore her suffering with the patience which only a Christian can. She was a member of the church at Pisgah, having joined two years ago, and just before dying told them that Jesus was with her and that she had lived a Christian for these last two years. Would that we had more girls such as she was. Having known I. V. since a child I know that there was not a better girl in the community. She was also a member of the Sunday School. She leaves a father, mother and three brothers, also lots of friends who will miss her. We would say to them grieve not for she has only gone to join those gone on before, where we expect to meet her again. Funeral was at Pisgah by Rev. T. A. Carden, after which burial was at Pisgah Cemetery. A Friend.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 26 Jun 1940

Mrs. Sarah A. Smith Owen was born April 12, 1863, died June 14, 1940. Having been reared in a Christian home she became a Christian early in life and joined the Methodist Church. Her Christian faith was an inspiration to those whom she came in contact with. She was married to Tom B. Owen fifty years ago and was a devoted wife and mother, the light and life of the home through the many years. She had unusual good health until the fatal sickness which was of several months duration and which she bore with patience comforted by the faith and hope that had been her strength through a long useful life. She loved the church and was interested in its welfare. The community has lost a noble, useful citizen; the church a loyal member, but the loss in the home is greater than all. She had given more than fifty years to her home and family but is there no longer to welcome the children with a smile to the home they loved so dearly nor is she there to cheer them on their way. Surviving her is her husband, Tom Owen, one daughter, Mrs. Hugh Oliver, Abilene, Texas; two sons, Brown Owen, Sheffield, Ala., and Beaty Owen, Cornersville, Tenn.; one brother, Will Smith, Diana, Tenn.; one sister, Mrs. J. W. Driver, Madison, Tenn.; and four grandchildren and many friends and other relatives. A son, Talmage Owen, died in 1918. Funeral services were at Pisgah by Rev. Vance Park, assisted by Rev. M. L. Harwell and Rev. Elisha Henry. Burial Pisgah Cemetery.

      Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 12 Apr 1900
Bunker Hill---On April 7, the infant babe of Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Roddie quietly passed into sweet life beyond, aged 7 months and one day. Marco was a sweet innocent little babe and was as smart a child as I ever saw to be so young. Little Marco had been suffering untold agony for the last two weeks with whooping cough and pneumonia and fatal results followed, carrying the little infant to its long, long home. The first link has been broken in this once happy family circle and the shadows rest deeply where recently all was sunshine. Loving parents and kind friends did all they could, but God took him home to be with loved ones gone on before. If he had lived he would have been subjected to the sins and sorrows of life. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Shaw, of Elkton, at the homestead, after which he was carried to Pisgah and laid to rest to await the resurrection morn.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 9 Oct 1968
A family argument between a father and grandfather following the father’s whipping his 14-
year-old son, culminated Thurday night in the shooting death of the father at his home. Dead is Archie Henry Salters, 61, father of nine children and in Giles County jail pending preliminary hearing is his father-in-law, 80 year old Ollie Neely who made his home with the family on Beech Hill Road, five miles east of Pulaski. Sheriff William Oliver, who investigated the shooting with deputies Paul White, Reedy Mitchell and Cecil Dugger, said the shooting took place about 8 p. m. at the Salters residence following a dispute between the two men. The argument concerned Salters having whipped his son after the boy and a brother had scuffled and broken out a storm door at the home. Following the exchange of words, Salters seated himself at the supper table, and Neely is alleged to have gone to another room where he obtained a rifle, returned to the table and fired two shots. Salters was dead on arrival of the officers at the residence. The body was taken to Rainey Funeral Home, Ardmore, Tenn., where funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Burial took place at Pisgah Cemetery, Giles County. Mr. Salters is survived by his wife, Annie Neely Salters, six sons, Grover, U. S. Army, Vietnam, Wayne, Jim, Thomas, Billy Joe, and Randy Ray Salters, all of Pulaski; three daughters, Mrs. Dorris Jones, Taft, Mrs. Opal Campbell, Cullman, Ala., and Miss Carlene Holt of Georgia.

"
Dr.
Smith died at his home near McBurg, July 8, 1911, age 78 years, and was buried Monday at Pisgah. He and Mrs. Smith were sick all last winter, and he came forth last spring in a feeble condition. He had gained sufficient strength to drive to Petersburg, and was in McBurg on the day his leg was broken, on returning home. From this hurt tetanus set up that resulted in his death. He was never a very strong man physically, but had a fine intellect and was a good reasoner. Like all of us he had his faults and sins, but had found rest from all the sins by believing in the finished work of Christ. He believed that the atoning merit of the Son of God was all sufficient to save him from his sins and believing this he had fought a good fight and kept the faith. True he was an ambitious man, but the indwelling of the Holy Spirit had toned up his life, and demonstrated to the world through him that there is a reality in the religion of Christ. He was identified with the Primitive Baptists at New Hope Church and fidelity to his church and family and friends was one of his strongest and greatest points. But there is no greater point in human life that fidelity to family and church and friends. We never met him and took his hand, and looked into that keen penetrating eye, that we did not feel conscious of the fact that great soul was living in the "earthy house." R. G. Myers of Dellrose, who knew his life and had lived at this door for twenty years spoke at the residence and paid him a very high eulogy, when the said that he had tried him and knew that he was an honest man. Elder Jim Britton also made a few brief remarks at the cemetery. He leaves a wife and four children: Mrs. Nevels in Texas, Mrs. Tom Caldwell, Miss Annie Smith and Pleas Smith. God bless this family and all who may read this tribute to "Rockey" John Smith, who has bid farewell to loved ones, and the sunlit hills of McBurg, and has gone to try the realities of that unseen world.

On the 29th of December the death angel visited the home of Will Smith and claimed for its victim his wife. She was a member of the Christian Church. She did not get to go to her church often, but she was always a worker in the church at this place, and the Missionary Society. She talked as if she was going off for a visit. She said she wanted Bro. Holmes to preach her funeral. She selected the songs she wanted the people to sing, and also selected who she wanted for her pall-bearers. They were as follows: J. M. Ingram, Dr. Birdsong, Prof. Ed Ingram, Dr. Judge Lancaster, R. C. Smith and William Oliver. We sympathize wit her bereaved husband and two children, Mrs. Will Gosnell and Clyde Smith. Weep not as those who have no hope, for we shall see her again.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 15 Apr 1920 Woodrow "Dr. Love"

On Thursday morning, April 8th "Curg" Smith left home on foot and told his wife that he would be at home that night. He came to Woodrow to see Mr. and Mrs. Sam Curtis, his wife's niece, and left on the three o'clock train for Frankewing. But told Mr. Curtis that he would not come back on the night train to go home as he had told his wife he would do, but would go across the Sutton farm from Frankewing. This was nearer than going the public road. We saw him at Frankewing and expressed surprise at seeing him out as he had been confined to his room for some time. But he said he had already walked to see cousin Hortense Campbell. He left Frankewing and the public road and on our return home we passed in the lane at Bradshaw Creek at the gate that leads across the grass lot bottom on the Sutton farm. We asked him if he could cross the little creek that flows across the bottom and he said he could. This was the last time he was seen alive, between four and five in the afternoon. His wife sat up late expecting him home but finally decided that he was spending the night at Woodrow and retired but said she dreamed that he was calling her and awoke to hear it raining. Friday morning when he failed to come home she sent Jack Watson to Woodrow. Mr. Curtis knew the way he said he was going home and we told Mr. Curtis where we had passed him on our way home. So they went across the bottom and little creek and found him dead in a small ditch. From his tracks he had attempted to recross the ditch to get a can of paint he had set down. He was stretched out full length face down, his feet against one bank and his body on the other bank, and there were no evidence that he had moved but expired in a short time in the same position in which he fell. He was 71 years of age and no one who knew him was surprised because he had failed to get up without help, for that had been his misfortune for several years. We all regret that he died this way but he was childish and his wife could not control him. But there was no evidence of foul play and the evidence was conclusive that he met death accidentally. He had been married twice, his first wife was Miss Martha Woodard and his next Miss Margie Woodard, a cousin. Mr. Smith was a high toned Christian, he was always cheerful and as harmless asa dove and did not have an enemy. But he became childish and believed that he could go and his wife could not control him. He was a member of the Methodist Church. He was buried at Pisgah Saturday after services by Rev. W. M. Cook. He leaves a wife, and one brother, Bob Smith of Albany, and one sister, Mrs. Neal of Birmingham. They were both at the burial and Mrs. Robert Smith and Charley Woodard of Albany were also there. The bereaved have much sympathy in their loss.

Mrs. Charlie Mack Harwell Watson wife of Matthew Watson of Bunker Hill died August 1 of tuberculosis at the home of her mother, Mrs. E. F. Aymett. Mrs. Watson was baptized when an infant by Rev. R. W. Seay. She joined the M.E. Church South in early childhood. She possessed a noble character. Everyone who knew her loved her. She bore her long suffering with a Christians's fortitude, which seemed never to tire. During the many visits paid her by her pastor she always gave assurance that it was well with her soul. Although again the "Reaper; Death," has allowed his scythe to creep in and cut one of our full bloomed flowers from our midst and carried her soul away to the land fairer than day, we should take heed to walk the narrow and straight road that leads us to eternal life. Her body was laid to rest at the cemetery here, after funeral services at the church by Rev. J. P. Homes. She is survived by her husband and mother, Mrs. E. F. Aymett and two brothers, Luther and Edgar Harwell. To these the loved ones of the deceased we extend our sympathy.

      The Pulaski Citizen 28 Jul 1904
Death has again visited Friendship Community, and claimed as a victim one of our beloved
friends--Nina E. Worsham--who was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. S. Gunter, and was married to J. B. Worsham in August 1893. Nina was born Dec. 31, 1875, professed religion and joined the M. E. Church at Friendship in 1893. She lived a consistent member until July 17, 1904, when she was called to answer the summons from beyond the river of life. She was my neighbor and friend for twenty-nine years. In her childhood days she was kind and affectionate, ever ready to do anything for the comfort and happiness of her parents. I knew her as not extravagant to say--to be one of the purest of women. I never heard her speak unkindly of any one; peace and prudence seemed to have been her watch word. Such a rich character as hers is not the product of an hour, or day, neither a month nor a year, but an abundant accumulation of a life time. She was a devoted wife and mother and as obedient to her parents as when a child. Oh, loving parents donigrieve forever, but look to the Giver of all that's best. He hath said in his promise that fadeth never, he giveth his beloved rest. We bow in humble submission to the will of him who doth all things well. May God in his abundant mercy and love kind up the sorrowing hearts of her husband two little children, parents, brothers and sisters. May they rejoice in the fact that she lived in their midst a true Christian, leaving the lamp of life burning, as a guide all along the rough pathway. Funeral services were conducted at Pisgah Church by Revs. T. A. Carden and C. A. Harwell, after which the remains were laid in the cemetery at that place. Call not back the dear departed Anchored safe where storms are o're On the border land we left her, Soon to meet and part no more. A Friend
