Dooley, Rev. William Esom

Obituary of Reverend William E. Dooley from June, 1915 DeQueen Bee. Rev. W. E. Dooley departed this life at Idabel, Oklahoma, May 28, 1915. He was born near Columbia, Murry (sic) County, Tenn., October 28, 1838. He moved with his parents, when a lad, to Oxford, Miss. Enlisted in in (sic) the Confederate army, at Oxford, February 19, 1862, and served through the war between the states, in the army of Northern Virginia. He moved to Lockesburg, Ark., shortly after the war, where he lived till 1911, when he moved to Idabel, Oklahoma. He was converted and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1854. Joined the Mound Prairie Presbytery 1869 and was licensed to preach in 1871 and ordained in 1879. Bro. Dooley was twice married. His first wife was Miss Nancy (sic) A. Melton, to whom he was married April 12, 1859. Of this union there were born 7 children: four of whom lived to mourn his loss. His second wife, was Mrs. Naomi Alsobrook, to whom he was married April 26, 1911; she survives him. Brother Dooley was one of the most noble men that it was ever our good fortune to meet. He was one of those noble Christian characters that makes everyone, with whom they come in contact, feel as though they were in the presence of a man of God; yet he did not as some do, repel the ungodly, for he could make the most ungodly man feel perfectly at east in his presence. This gave him the greater power for good. And this influence he ever used to the fullest extent, in furthering the Master's cause. His last marriage was a very happy one; as sister Dooley was a consecrated Christian woman, and he lived out the last few years of his life, surrounded by loving friends and relatives. If ever a man could say with Paul, "I have fought a good fight; I have kept the faith; henceforth, there is laid up for me in Heaven, a crown of righteousness," it was Brother Dooley. We want to say to the relatives and kind friends, that while Brother Dooley has left us, and we can never see his radiant face again on this earth, we know where he is; he has pointed us the way, if we only follow as he directed, we are sure of another meeting, where there will be no more parting, pain or sorrow. --- A Friend.
