He met reverses, but has manfully battled with life's uncertainties, and has always made a comfortable provision for his family, who later became well to do through inheritance. He had lived in Forrest City and Haynes about 37 years during which long time he has been a good citizen, a genial friend, and a believer in the future of this country. He engaged in the cotton business for years, being a buyer for the Lesser-Goldman Cotton Company, of which Julius Lesser, the deceased millionaire, was the "power" behind the throne. He was high in masonry, having reached the thirty second degree, and was a member here when they had a temple. Acting as escort, the Masons went with the body on the Rock Island, to include:Messrs.Sol Lewis, Isadore Yoffie, Rev.Kirker, A.L.Stevens, Robert Hamilton, and Charles H.Sanders.

|| IZARD EFFIE L. MRS. HOWELL 1871 2 26 1902 CITY || DEATH OF MRS.R.J.IZARD-After ten weeks of painful illness, which was borne with Christian fortitude, notwithstanding the the unremitting attention of physicians, nurses, and sympathetic friends, on Wednesday afternoon, Feb.26,1902, the spirit of Mrs.Richard J.Izard returned to it's maker.Mrs.Izard was the daughter of Mr.& Mrs.J.L.Howell, of Howell, Ark., was born in that village, and had scarcely turned thirty years of age at the time of her demise.

|| IZARD FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS Dr. 2 9 1825 3 6 1901 CITY CSA || The Editor of The Forrest City, Ark., paper had the following to say of him when he passed to the great beyond, and we quote - "With mingled sentiments of pathos and joy we record this week the passing of one of St. Francis County's most honorable and venerable citizens, who in life was known and loved by hosts of friends and kinsmen in this community and wherever he was known. We are sad because of the absence of this noble character from the familiar earthly paths along which he exercised an elevating influence. Dr F. J. Izard might well have been termed one of the Lord's most trusted sentinels. Armed with the sword of the spirit he guarded his Master's interest faithfully and well, never losing an opportunity to challenge the enemy and reason with him about his soul's salvation and his words of admonition were always burdened with love and brotherly kindness. His devotion to his family was beautiful and steadfast, and he cherished, next to his religion, a sacred love for his children and those who bore his name. We rejoice because of the sweet assurance which he gave us in the last days that "all was well; Death had no sting for this valiant Christian, and he passed away into the valley of the shadows surrounded by a halo of glory, leaning on the mighty arm of his Redeemer, his venerable countenance lighted up by the heavenly smile of implicit trust and confidence. He was born in or near Huntsville, Alabama, Feb 9, 1825, and passed to his eternal reward March 6, 1901. He came to Arkansas when but an infant, with his father and mother, who were among the earliest settlers near Mt Vernon, then a small village situated about one mile north of the present site of Forrest City. He grew to young manhood surrounded by the environment peculiar to those early times, and passed through all the trying viciss- udes and unsettled conditions brought about by the civil way; but by close study and unceasing application, acquired a very flattering knowledge of the common school branches and entered somewhat into the classics. In May 1854 he was married to Miss Sarah Elizabeth Whitaker, and to them were born the six children heretofore mentioned. Thus passes from the scene of action a good man, a good citizen, a loyal companion and a devoted father, and having fought a good fight now enters into his well earned peace and rest.

|| JACKSON EVERETT H. UNK 3 14 1898 CITY || Everett H.Jackson, formerly assistant-postmaster of this city, and a most upright and honorable, highly respected and greatly loved young man, died Monday night, Mar.14,1898 at the home of his brother, T.H.Jackson, in Cherry Valley, of consumption. His remains were brought here for interment, arriving Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock, and were met at the depot by the Knights of Honor and a large concourse of citizens and friends, and followed to the cemetery, where services were conducted by Rev.A.E.Holloway, of the Methodist church, and the Knights of Honor, of both of which deceased was an esteemed member. "Eb" as he was familiarly known and called, had been in bad health for several years. Last year he had an operation performed, for fistula, and has never grown better. Recently he went to San Antonio, but grew worse and did not stay but a short time. After returning to Cherry Valley he gradually and rapidly grew weaker, and the end came to his sufferings Monday. In life we had talked with him of our health, and of his contemplated trip to San Antonio. He expressed the wish that we could go together. He seemed to think that the change would do him good, and that he would be able to go to work when he arrived there. But he waited too long. Death had marked him, and he is now at peace. He was an earnest and energetic worker in the Methodist church and that organization has missed his services, especially at the young people's meetings. The bereaved family has our sincere sympathy in this sad hour, though it is comforting to know that his brother's sufferings are o'er, and his life, so pure, has gone out and back to the giver, and that his soul is now with God.
