Mrs. Elizabeth Birmingham

Mrs. Elizabeth was born August 25, 1853; professed religion in August 1897 and joined the Methodist church and became convinced that she was wrong and joined the Missionary Baptist and was baptized September 5, 1896, and lived a faithful Christian till God called her September 28, 1897. She leaves a husband and six children to mourn her loss, but weep not, for she is--
Borne by angels on their wings,
 Far from earth the spirit flies
Finds her God and sits and sings,
Triumphantly in paradise.
Arkansas Baptist, November 24, 1897, page 15
