OBITUARY: From Gospel Advocate, Nashville Tenn, June 16, 1910
Aunt Nancy Tosh was born on July 21, 1834, died on February 17, 1910. She had been a member of the church of Christ at Roan Creek, Carroll County, Tenn. for more than half a century. She was a woman of few words but of many faithful deeds to others. For many years she read the Gospel Advocate through without stopping. Her honesty, truthfulness, and industry were manifest in her everyday life lived with her from the tender age of seven years. Her two brothers and four sisters are gone on before. Services by C. C. Brown at our home. The remains were laid to rest in Lake City, Fla. This data was sent me relative to the death of Aunt Nancy Tosh (as she was familiarly called by all who knew her) by Sister J. O. Barnes of Lake City. Aunt Nancy impressed me as a Christian woman who possessed a deeply implanted desire to attend strictly to her own business. To know her was to love her. A number of her last years were spent under the hospitable roof of Brother J. O. Barnes, who married her niece, Miss Mollie Roark, of Hollow Rock Junction, Tenn several years ago. Since their happy union two of Sister Barnes' aunts have resided with them till death claimed their bodies and no doubt, paradise their spirits. Bro Barnes and wife were as kind and gentle to these aged veterans as we ought to be to infants. They seemed to never tire administering to their varied wants, day or night, till they fell asleep sweetly in Christ. I am a witness to the fact that the home of Brother Barnes was a dear place from which to leave this earth and go to heaven. It is truly a spiritual oasis even for the preacher in this sandy desert (Florida), worn and weary to stop a while and be entertained "without money and without price," and go on his journey refreshed and strengthened for the further struggles of this life. By this time I am sure that Bro Barnes and his faithful consort have learned to rejoice that dear "Aunt Nancy" has been honorably discharged from further service in the Lord's army down here, to spend eternity in the "Soldiers' Home" on the other shore. May God abundantly bless them both for their untiring labors of love in the Master's vineyard. M. H. Northcross, Winter Haven, Florida.
