Dr. R. M. Barnes

Died February 1, 1897, after an illness of one year. He was 78 years old. Professed religion while young and joined the Baptist church; moved to Charleston, Ark., in 1858, and has lived here most of the time since. He was a deacon in the Baptist Church at this place and was a faithful servant of Christ and the pastor's friend; active in the church and mission work. He leaves a wife, who was very much devoted to him  and one daughter, Mrs. Alice B. Wallis, to mourn over his death, but they weep not as those who have no hope, for he died in full triumph of a living faith. L. Quinn
