Elder J.N. McCall

Was born October 6, 1842, departed this life February 18, 1897. He professed religion in 1887 and was
ordained deacon December 25, 1887, and ordained to the full ministry of the gospel in 1888 and lived a faithful servant for the Master till the Lord said come up higher, you have been faithful over a few things; enter into the joys of thy Lord and I'll make thee ruler over many things. Blessed are they that fall asleep in Jesus. The writer preached his funeral at Mission No. 2 to a large congregation, November 14, 1897. He leaves a wife and six children, and an old mother of 98 years, one brother and sister, to mourn his loss. God's will be done.
Though today we be filled with  mourning
mercy still in on the throne
With thy smile of love returning,
We can sing, "They will be done"
                                        Rev. J.F. Clark
Arkansas Baptist, November 24, 1897, page 15
