Mrs. Nannie (Vanderslice) DeLaughter

Born in Dallas County, Ark., November 1, 1862, died December 9, 1897.
Her life was spent here, except eight years in Nashville, Tenn. She professed he faith in Christ at Cypress church, under the ministry of Rev., Wm. Davis, and joined the Methodist church in 1878 and lived a devoted, active, religious life till the end. She was married to Rev. Benjamin DeLaughter June 7, 1896; was a great help to him in his trials, and a devoted wife, true and kind; beloved by those who knew her best, and made them feel that she was near to God. In her last moments she talked and sang of heaven, sweet home of the blest. Bereaved ones, cheer up; it won't be long till we shall see her, never more to part. Loving mother, husband and sister; weep not; she is at rest.
Arkansas Baptist, January 12, 1898, page 15
