Her death was not unexpected since for more than a year she had been in bad health and for the last few months her vitality had been manifestly ebbing away.

She was a loyal member of the Woman's Home Mission Society and was most liberal in contribution to the benevolence supported through the organization.

His illness was of short duration, he having taken pneumonia about one week before his death. He leaves his grief stricken wife, Mrs. Joan F.

Parker of of Little Rock, Arkansas, and a host of friends and relatives to mourn his loss. His was a long, useful, active and energetic life and few men have impressed themselves so forcibly and favorably as "Uncle Priest", as he was called by those who loved his admirable traits of character. Only eternity can tell the good he has done for this and adjoining counties. During his lifetime he sold goods at Clarksburg, Huntingdon, Brodies Landing, and Wildersville, and during that time he was continually doing good for his country. He professed religion and joined the Baptist Church in 1898 and has lived a consistent Christian life until death.
While we mourn for Uncle Priest, we remember his noble character, his devotion to duty, his long life of usefulness. Goodbye husband, father, Christian brother and fellow citizen, may we meet again beyond the grave. -- M.F.P. Wildersville, Tennessee, January 30, 1906
