Obituary

Sister Frances Bennett was born Oct. 8, 1848, in White County, Tenn. She professed religion and joined the M. E. church South in the fall of 1865, in which she lived a devoted Christian till the death angel called her home from Clinton, Arkansas, July 10, 1896.

She was married to P. C. Bennett Aug. 30, 1866, their happy union has blessed with two children, both of whom still live to comfort their father, and share in his sore bereavement. Sister Bennett was a devoted wife and mother, highly respected and loved by all who knew her. She leaves a host of friends who heartily sympathize with the relatives in their death sorrow.

Dear husband and children weep not as those who have no hope, be comforted with these words: The Lord himself shall descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the cloud, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

C. H. Nelson.
Clinton, Ark., July 20, 1896
