Mrs. Antha Ferguson

Died May 3, 1897 at Pawnee Agency, Oklahoma, aged 54 years. She was converted in youth, but did not join the Baptists until 1887, when she and her husband were baptized by Bro W. E. Penn. She married W.H. Ferguson in February 1875. For several years she was an invalid and a great sufferer, but bore it all with Christian fortitude, while being tenderly cared for by a devoted husband and loving children. She leaves a husband, one son and one daughter to mourn. The body was brought to Bentonville, Ark., for burial and the services were held in the Baptist church; a large congregation gathering to sympathize with relatives. Pastor J. T. Moore preached from Phil. 1:21 and then the body was laid away to await the resurrection.
