Mrs. Cynthia (BROWN) SARRATT, ATKINS
Obituary: WALKER COUNTY MESSENGER of Date 1892

"Mrs. Cynthia ATKINS, wife of Capt. C.B. ATKINS, was born in Union Co., SC. Dec. 28, 1832, She married C.B. ATKINS in 1850, Moved to Georgia in 1859, and united with Bethlehem Baptist Church in 1860 and was baptized by Rev. Jacob TATE. On the 11th August, God in his infinite wisdom saw proper to pluck this beautiful flower from the earthly home and to transplant it to his garden above, the celestial home of the good where it will add beauty and lead grace through eternity. While a devoted Christian was among the living, it was her soul's chief delight, it was a pleasure which surpassed other pleasures to do all she could for the entertainment of God's people. Many a sumptuous dinner has she prepared for her beloved Pastor and friends; but bereaved friends, you should not mourn your loss for now it is her privilege to be with her Savior whom she so faithfully and earnestly served." [REF:#1800.003]
[The Pastor who wrote the above obituary, has the wrong birth date for Mrs. Cynthia (BROWN) SARRATT, ATKINS it should be 28 Dec. 1822. ..prs]
OBITUARY: WALKER COUNTY MESSENGER of Jul. 05, 1900
"Memorial of C.B. ATKINS who was born April 5, 1828 and departed this life April 17, 1900. Brother ATKINS professed religion in early life, and joined the New Hope Baptist Church in Spartanburg, SC. Afterwards he moved to Chattooga Co., GA. and joined Bethlehem Baptist Church and was ordained a Deacon, and discharged the duties of his office faithfully until God saw fit to remove him from this life to one eternal. Brother ATKINS was an open hearted, cheerful Christian, always had a pleasant smile and a kind word for his fellow man where ever he met them and was ever ready with his purse to help the poor and needy and to support the cause of Christ in any way he could. He was an honorary member of the WMS of Bethlehem Church and did much to help and encourage the work of missions, and was faithful to attend his meetings and was a good Sunday school worker. Brother ATKINS loved his own church but possessed much of that beautiful unselfish love for all Christians of every name that is characteristic of true Christians and always when it was convenient joined their worship. We feel that our Church has lost one of it's best members, yet we believe our loss is his gain. A calm review of long acquaintance reveals the grace of sincerity, humility and love bestowed on his character, which begins all good on earth for immortal ends. Brother ATKINS was confined to his bed for several months and suffered great pain, yet he bore his afflictions with Christian fortitude and patience. He expresses a willingness to die and said he was ready for his Father's call. We will ever remember his prayers and his voice in singing God's praise. How often we have heard him sing that precious old hymn, 'Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound' Brother ATKINS leaves six children and a large number of Grandchildren, besides other relatives and friends who morn his death."
