Rev. Charles Albert Chadick (His Obituary Below)

(s/o Charles Rowan Chadick)

b. 13 May 1820, Roane, TN

d. 14 Aug 1888, Jefferson, AR

Rev. Charles Chaddick was born in Tenn. May 18, 1820, was converted and joined the Methodist Church in 1837; was married in 1841; licensed to preach in 1845; moved to Arkansas in 1848 where he lived and labored until August 14, 1888, where he quietly and triumphantly passed over the river to enjoy the reward of the faithful. Bro. Chaddick was a great sufferer for more than two years before his death, from that worst of afflictions, cancer, by which two-thirds of his face was literally destroyed. As a Local preacher, Bro. Chaddick was above ordinary and was loved and honored by all who knew him - a safe counselor, a faithful friend to every interest in the Church. As a friend and neighbor he was kind and accomodating. He will be missed and his life held in affectionate remberance by all who sustained intimate relations to him. He was a man of strong religious convictions; his works expressed his faith in the Christian religion, for his conduct was at all times consistent with his profession. A few weeks before his death I was talking with him about his suffering. Said he, "You think you could not endure what I am now enduring? I thought, when this cancer first started that I could not endure any more, but I have found that as the suffering increased so did the grace of my Lord; his grace was my sufficiency then it is my strength now. Doctors and medicines have failed, friends have grown weary, but the Lord seems to be drawing nearer every day." "Servent of God, well done; Rest from thy loved employ; The battle fought, the vict'ry, won. Enter the Master's joy."
