Through all the period he was carefully nursed, and attended lovingly by his children, most of whom were with him at the time of his death.

3-28-1902 POPE JENNIE MRS SULLIVAN 4 7 1851 3 22 1902 CITY A TRIBUTE TO MRS.JENNIE POPE=Death, it is a harsh word in all seasons, but more especially does it jar upon our minds and wring our hearts, just at this time when nature is bursting into new life and beauty. Evidences of the glad spring time all about us and the throbbing throats of myriad's of early songsters peeling forth a joyous chorus in announcement of the happy season, tends to destroy all thought of death, but how sternly the grim reaper bids us halt, and now forcibly are we reminded that "in the midst of life we are in death," by the removal from earthly walks of one of the community's truest and noblest women. Forrest City was never more universally and keenly stricken than upon last Saturday afternoon, Mar.22,1902, when the news of Mrs.Jennie Pope's demise spread over the city like a pall of gloom. Mrs.Jennie Pope was directly descended from one of the proudest and oldest families of the South, and was the daughter of Dr.& Mrs.Charles L.Sullivan, who were among the early pioneer settlers of Eastern Arkansas. She was the last of her generation of a noble race; whose pride in and love for her family were among our most beautiful characteristics. She was a woman of superior intellect and was identified with Christian people of this city in all their efforts to promote universal charity and brotherly love. For many years, Mrs.Pope was a teacher in the public schools and being an accomplished musician, also took classes for the piano forte. Jennie Sullivan was born in the spring of 1851, at the old Sullivan homestead on the Military road, between Allen's Ferry and Taylor's Creek, in St.Francis county, Arkansas, and was married in January of the year 1875, to Mr.Will Pope, of Memphis, Tenn. To this union, two sons were born, viz.John L. and Paul. Mrs.Pope departed this life at 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon, at the age of 50 years and was buried the following day at the Forrest City cemetery. The funeral sermon was delivered by Elder A.N.Couch, of the Baptist church, of which she was a member. Charles R.Izard, who has been in Little Rock, returned Saturday to attend the bedside, of his aunty, Mrs.Jennie Pope, but arrived too late to see her alive. He will remain in town and take over circulation of the Commercial Appeal. We wish him success. A Card of Thanks from sons Paul and John L.Pope thanking friends for their assistance with their mother during her last illness.
3-28-1902 FOLBRE ELIZABETH MRS 1 15 1828 3 5 1902 INDIANA Mrs.Folbre=Mrs.Elizabeth Folbre was born at Bellevue, Kentucky, Jan.15,1828, and died at her residence in Aurora, Indiana, March 5,1902, aged 79 years.

They had nine children, six girls and three boys. Five daughters growing to womanhood, the sons dying in infancy. Of the immediate family now living there are three daughters and one granddaughter. Mrs.Folbre survived her husband, a well known business man, nearly fifteen years ago, and when death came to her after a short illness with little suffering, she passed away so peacefully that those about her bedside scarcely knew when life left her frail body. Mrs.Folbre was a woman of noble character, strong intellect, kind disposition, and extremely charitable to the failings of others. Dearborn Independent, Aurora, Ind.-Mrs.Folbre was an aunt of Capt.T.C.Folbre of Forrest City.

4-11-1902 CASTEEL A. CALLOWAY MR. 1817 12 27 1901 CITY Calloway Casteel, or "An old line Methodist."=Among the veteran toiler's and travelers of this world was one whose name was familiar and venerable among the citizens of Forrest City-Calloway Casteel, and it is with the keenest pleasure that I pay to a humble tribute to the memory of "the good old man." While the nineteenth century was moist with the morning dew, and our country was rising into the strength of an independent republic. In 1817, A.C.Calloway entered upon his long and honorable career. The place of his birth was noted for its good people and for its old people-East Tennessee. When a young man, he went to Alabama, but remained there only a few years. The old state was, however, not unkind to him, for it was while there that he found the greatest fortune a man ever found-a good wife and faith in Christ. Isabelle Simpson became his wife and walked by his side for over sixty years, or to the end of his way. She lingers still, but is looking wistfully in the direction of his departure. Two years after his marriage he was converted, and for nearly sixty years lived a Christian life. In 1848 he came to Arkansas and located near Mt.Vernon in St.Francis county. This vicinity, (now that of Forrest City) has been the scene of this good man's activities for more than half a century. By his industry and good sense he acquired and put into cultivation extensive and valuable lands, and became one of this county's most thrifty farmers. His possessions, however, he divided among his children when he became too old to care for them, reserving only what was necessary to sustain himself and wife during their last days. Among these was the old homestead nestling in old time comfort and simplicity beside a grove of forest trees. When he was converted, at a camp meeting in Alabama, he united with the Methodist church. In after life when frequent innovations appeared in the church he did not hesitate to express his preference for the old time simplicity and freedom referred to himself as an old line Methodist. He never made any boast of his religious life, but with kindness and gratitude worshiped God and imbued the Holy Spirit till the close of his life. Calloway Casteel seemed to have the confidence of everybody. If he ever had an enemies, he must have outlived them. His last day on earth was Dec.27,1901. Full of years, full of honors, and full of the Holy Ghost he left peacefully in his sleep and was gathered to his father's and his God.
4-18-1902 WISE MILLIE MRS. UNK 4 14 1902 DEMOCRAT DEMOCRAT TIMES=Mrs.Millie Wise of Sand Ridge, died Monday, Apr.14,1902, and was buried the next day at the Democrat Cemetery. She had been an invalid for the past ten years and her death was a surprise to no one.
4-25-1902 STOKES RUSSELL MR. UNK 4 22 1902 UNKNOWN Russell Stokes, who is in the employ of Ike Williams at Madison, drowned in St.Francis river near the Houston place, Tuesday, Apr.22,1902, about three miles north of Madison in about ten or twelve feet of water. He and another man were rafting logs. They undertook to cross the river in a boat or dugout, and it was swamped, one man hung on to the boat and was able to reach the shore, but Stokes was wearing rubber boots which pulled him down.
4-25-1902 TAYLOR W. L. MR. UNK 4 24 1902 UNKNOWN Killing at Whitmore=News reached the city yesterday morning, Apr.24,1902, that Tom Yarbrough, had shot and instantly killed his father in law, W.L.Taylor, at Whitmore. Deputy Sheriff Murphree and Coroner Alley went over on the morning train, the former to arrest Yarbrough, the latter to perform the inquest. The inquest determined that the two were mill hands at Bernham's mill, and that they had quarreled the day previous about some trivial matter. The next morning at about 6 am, while Taylor was walking across the mill platform, Yarbrough came upon him with a shotgun, and without further to do, fired the load taking effect in Taylor's head. He took three other shots, but only the first, took effect. Afterwards Yarbrough took to the woods and is still at large. Taylor died almost instantly.
5-2-1902 HEAD W. V. MR. UNK 4 27 1902 MARIANNA CHOPPED OFF HIS LOWER LIMBS=Capt.George Head was called suddenly to Marianna to attend to his brother, Mr.W.V.Head. The brother lives about a mile from Capt.Head's residence in Marianna, and had been suffering from an accident 23 years ago, affecting the brain, causing him to act erratically. He was out of his mind, and instead of killing his brother and his family, and burning their home, on Friday, he decided while sane to disable himself, which he took an ax and chopped off both legs just below the knee. Per the Marianna Index of yesterday, he died Saturday night, Apr.22,1902, of his injuries at the home of his brother, Capt.George Head. The unfortunate man was a truck farmer on the Jack's place near town. His remains were interred in the Marianna cemetery Sunday, Rev.R.A.Holloway officiating.
5-16-1902 TAYLOR GEORGE PRESSLEY JUDGE 10 13 1850 5 13 1902 CITY JUDGE TAYLOR PASSES AWAY=Buried under the auspices of the Masons. Judge George P.Taylor, who was stricken with apoplexy on May.7, died Tuesday, May 13,1902 at his home. He never spoke again from the attack on the 7th, but lay unconscious until death claimed its victim, and he passed away peacefully and without a struggle. "Death loves a shining mark," in claiming Hon.George P.Taylor as its victim, it has robbed the family of its mainstay and protector; of a loving husband, and a kind and indulgent father. He was perhaps better known and more universally esteemed than any other character in Eastern Arkansas. He has been prominent in social, business, church, political, and fraternal circles for many years, and in the discharge of his duties as a representative of his constituents here and following of his inclinations, has mingled with the great men of the state and nation among whom he has a legion of friends. The writer has known the Judge for sixteen years, and he has always been our friend, and his counsel was always wise and never selfish. The funeral sermon was delivered by Elder W.H.Paslay, who was assisted in the ceremonies by Elder A.N.Couch, at the Baptist church, Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The remains were accompanied from the residence by the Blue lodge and a Knights Tempter escort, to the Forrest City cemetery under the auspices of Forrest City Lodge No.198, F.A. & M. The Woodmen of the World also attended the funeral in a body, and accompanied the body to its resting place. The funeral procession was lead by Tyler Geo.W.Pearson, and the Citizen's Concert Band, and was one of the largest in the history of the city. The following biographical sketch is taken from the 1892 Souvenir edition of the Forrest City Times: A man of over six feet in height, and 195 pounds, was born in Cooper County, Missouri, Oct.13,1850, and traces his ancestry back to John Taylor of Scotch and Irish descent, who was the founder of that branch of the family on this side of the continent. He came to America before the great "Stamp Act" and "Boston Tea Party" occurred, and settled among the colonies in South Carolina. He was loyal to the country of his adoption when the great conflict began which announced the birth of the greatest nation on the face of the globe, and gave one of his sons to the cause of freedom. Early in the history of Kentucky, John Taylor emigrated to this territory, and here was born and reared his son, upon whom was bestowed the family name of John. He grew to manhood in a locality even then thinly settled, but being lured by the tales of the new region across the Mississippi, followed the train of emigrants westward, and among the prominent names in the early history of Cooper County, Missouri. appears that of John Taylor. He was there married to Miss Cockrell. After remaining there in that county till the breaking out of the war he moved to St.Louis. George P.Taylor spent his life in his native state, and attended school at Boonville, taught by Rev.Dr.Kemper.
5-16-1902 TAYLOR GEORGE PRESSLEY JUDGE CONT CITY He was fourteen when his father moved to St.Louis, and in 1867 removed to Arkansas; settling in Lee County on a plantation, where he remained until 1873. Then he came to Forrest City, and died here in 1879 of yellow fever, his wife preceding him by about a year. George P.Taylor located as citizen of St.Francis county in 1870, where he was engaged in farming, being married in Feb.1873 to Miss Alice Koonce, a native of this county. She is the mother of six children-Edgar P.,Walter R.,Alva J., Alice N., Nannie, and George Jr. In 1874 after the reconstruction act, Mr.Taylor was elected representative of St.Francis county, though at that time only twenty four years of age. He was re-elected in 1878 and 1880 was appointed county collector. In 1880 he entered into the real estate business at Forrest City. In 1885, the Forrest City Manufacturing Co. was formed, with Mr.Taylor as President, but a fire after caused the dissolution of the business. In 1881, he formed a partnership with Hatcher & Mann in the mercantile business, remaining two years. December, 1886, he was associated with James M.Stewart as real estate agents and brokers, then the only firm of that kind in the county. He is one of the organizers and is the secretary of the Forrest City Hotel company; a stockholder and director of the Bank of Eastern Arkansas. He also owns several plantations in this county, and is conceded to be one of its most prominent citizens. He is presently a member of the prosperous firm of Taylor & Izard, real estate and insurance agents. He is a member of the Baptist church, and their home is one of the finest here, with a well stocked library. Bringing the sketch on down to now: the firm of Taylor & Izard were succeeded by Geo.P.Taylor & Co., Edgar P.Taylor taking the junior partnership. In 1896, the subject of this sketch was made Brigadier General of the Arkansas State Guard by Governor Fishback. In 1898, he was elected to the office of County and Probate Judge. All of the family aforementioned survive him.
