BIGGS, HUDSON, SUMMERS posted by Robert McLain on Thursday, October 17, 1901

Mt. Echo Newspaper; Nov. 1, 1901 issue. Mrs. Eliza L. BIGGS (nee HUDSON) was born in the Indian Territory February 16, 1862. Soon after the Civil War she moved with her parents to Yellville, Arkansas, where her father was for ten years sheriff of Marion County. She was married to Rev. W.K. BIGGS, November 14, 1889. She joined the M. E. Church on probation, but was never received into the full connection of that church. In 1899 she was received into the M. E. Church, South, being baptised at the parsonage at Clinton by Presiding Elder P.B. SUMMERS. She departed this life at 2 o'clock Thursday morning, October 17, 1901, aged 39 years, 8 months and 1 day. She was the mother of seven children, all of whom survive her, the youngest being an infant scarcely four months old. It is customary to speak well of a person who is called away from us, but the life of Sister BIGGS needs no such recommendation. She was well known here, and her gentleness in speech and kindness in disposition, exemplifying fully the character of a true wife and mother, were common themes of conversation. She leaves her children, a husband and several brothers and sisters who are inexpressibly sad to lose one so dear. Brother BIGGS has been the Methodist pastor on the Clinton Circuit for three years, and is fully consecrated to his work. How to care for his now motherless children and carry on his ministrial work is to him a painful problem. The whole community joins in sympathy for the bereft, and in the following prayer for the motherless children. "O Lord, a mother to them be, And keep them from all harm; That they may love and worship thee, And dwell upon they charms."
