B. F. Kitchens

Died on March 5, 1897 at his home near Gurdon, Ark. Aged 55 years. Bro. Kitchens, professed Christ as his Savior and was baptized in 1879, uniting with the Baptist church in Grayson county, Texas. At the time of his death he was a member of Caney Creek Baptist church, near Gurdon. He was a native of Arkansas, being born in Clark county, August 10, 1841. Bro Kitchens was a truly good man, highly esteemed by all who knew him. Bro. Wells spoke words of comfort and hope before a large crowd that came in sorrow to the church at Gurdon, after which service the Masonic fraternity took charge of the remains and laid them to rest. The Lord comfort the dear mother and children. Bye and bye we shall meet again.
