She was the sweet 'ittle daughter of Carter and Willie Echols. Just 9 months old when God said come up higher little Kate I have a brigh er place than earth for you She was too sweet for us to keep here. We know not why God took her from us so soon, but God knew best. I would say to her father and mother weep not for little Kate is resting in the arms of Jesus where no sick ness ever comes. She was here just a short while but will al ways remember her sweet smiles. She leaves a father, mother, one brother and a host of other relatives to mourn our loss. We 'oved her, yes, we loved her but angels loved her more and they have come and taken her to yonder shining shore.

Oi Miss Martha Benefield, w i o (lep.Wed this hie Se.) -m-j her the 15th, 1916. She was laid to rest in Dunkins Creek cemetery Saturday Sept. 16th.. She leaves a fatehr, mother, 4 brothers and three sisters to i mourn her loss, but their loss is, her eternal gain. She was a kind and loving child an dsister and was loved by ail who knew her. It was God’s will to take her from this world of sorrow, and we pray God that we may live a life in this world so as to meet dear Martha in Heaven where all is peace and happi ness and no farewell tears are shed. It is so sad to know we will never see her sweet face on earth no more nor hear her ten der sweet voice no more in this world but it is sweet to know we all have the assurance that if we live as we should we will meet Martha in heaven never to take the parting hand. We have the assurance that her soul has gone home to God in peace while the body sleeps a peace ful sleep awaiting the resurrec tion morn. Words can not tell the sadness that filled our he arts when from dear Martha we had to part, lonely the hours since dear Martha is gone, but oh, a brighter home than ours is now her own. Her sufferings are all over now and we feel sure that she is enjoying the sweetness of heaven and sing ing the sweet songs of Zion. She has paid the debt we all must pay sooner or later. The clear Lord has carried her to that beautiful home not made with lands eternal in the heavens. We loved her, yes, we loved her, but the angels loved her more. May God’s richest blessings pour out from heaven above up on all to live a better life in the future than we have in the past so when we are called away we can meet dear Martha that has gone on before. She was loved by all who knew her and always had a smile for all whom she met. A precious one from us is gone, a voice we loved is still, a place is vacant in the home that never can be tilled, peace ful in the grave so low thou art .vailing ever waiting for the dear ones here below, We’ll join thee in t’ne heavenly land no more to take the parting hand. Written by her loving friend, Lela Pendley. I leave a piece to leave be hind for my dear husband while I have my right mind. I hope and pray to God will guide us both to heaven, that is my ear :u st prayers to meet our darling in heaven. I can say that Ed has been a true, kind husband to me during all of my sickness and hope he will have good luck and live a happy life and at the judgment bar <>; God we will meet to part no more when there will be n<> more sorrow nor no more pains, but all will be joy and peace. I have lived in hopes of being well but 1 will hope no more, on iy dying hopes and I can’t tell no one what m\ sufferings has been for 1 don’t no my self.
