Obituary: In Memory: Otha Franklin Springer was born February 18th, 1905, and departed this life to be with Jesus October 29th, 1925. His stay on earth was the short while of only 20 years, 8 months and 11 days. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Springer, was born in Carroll County where he lived with his parents until the age of 13 years, then with his parents, moved to this country where he lived until his death. At the early age of 15 years he gave his heart and life to God. A little later he united with the Missionary Baptist Church at Mt. Gilead and there until Jesus called him home he lived a beautiful Christian life. No better boy can this old world afford than Otha was--an obedient son, a loving brother and a friend to everyone. The body was laid to rest in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery and on account of the bad weather only short funeral services were held. ---Felix Ivy

Obituary: The all wise God saw fit in His infinite wisdom to remove from our midst our friend and neighbor Mrs. Anna Gibson, who departed this life December 20, 1899. She was born October 13, 1872. She was daughter of F.H. and Nancy Douglass, and was married to J.F. Gibson, October, 1898, to whom was born one child, who preceded her to the better world. She bore her sickness with great fortitude and professed a hope in Christ five or six months before her death, but never joined any church. She leaves a kind husband and a widowed mother, two sisters and three brothers and a host of relations to ??? her death. I hope their loss is her eternal gain. We could enumerate many things that would characterize our dear sister as a child of God, but suffice to say that she had the Bible signs of a Christian and we believe her spirit is now hovering around the great white thrown. We would say to the bereaved husband, relatives, and friends, grieve not as those who have no hope, but let us ask the Lord to give us the grace to say, "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord." She is far better off than any of us.

Dearest wife thee has left us.
And our less we deeply feel.
But 'tis God that has bereft us,
He can our sorrows heal.

A FRIEND.
