Mrs. Martha Poe

Died in Russellville, Ark., Dec. 3, 1897. Sister Poe was born in North Carolina and moved to Grant County, Arkansas, over forty years ago. For several years after the war she lived in Little Rock, and kept the Poe Hotel on Fifth Street. Her daughter married Bro. A.T. Davis, of Russellville and in recent years she made her home there. She was a devoted Christian, and from early life a devoted Baptist. In 1871 our editor was a guest at the Poe Hotel, and at that time was impressed with her Christian fidelity. Ready for the harvest, the reaper gathered her. The Lord comfort the bereaved ones.
