Matthew McIver

Son of Archibald  and N.A. McIver, was born in Moore County, N.C., Dec. 3, 1847; moved to Hempstead County, Ark., Dec. 1851. He was married to Miss S. J. Conway, January 9, 1878; joined the Missionary Baptist church in the summer of 1895; departed this life November 15, 1896.
A precious one from us has gone;
A voice we love is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which can never be filled.
May God bless and comfort loved ones left behind, but especially would we ask God to comfort the sad and lonely wife and help her to bear this, the greatest trial of her life.
                                                            His Sorrowing Sister
Arkansas Baptist, March 10, 1897, page 15
