Emma Wright

Daughter of C. W. and Delia Wright. Born NOvember 6, 1886; died at Alleene, Ark., April 17, 1897.
She leaves a devoted and Christian father and mother, a little brother and many relatives and friends to mourn their loss. She will be sadly missed by family, friends, and especially by the writer. Dear Emma was no ordinary child.  Her expressions and acts were far beyond her years. Her precious face and eyes were so expressive that a divine light seemed beaming from them. "Death loves a shining mark." Oh, God, teach us to look up through our grief and say "Father, thy will be done"
Mattie Daniels
Arkansas Baptist, April 29m 1897, page 9
