W. A. Bryant

Died at Fordyce, Ark., March 30, 1897, after a long and severe illness. Bro. Bryant was one of our oldest brethren and we can not say his death was premature, for he was 75 years old. He lived to see his six children, now living, all grown and three preceded him to the "Glory-land."Of the six who are alive, four are professors. Bro. Bryant had been a Christian 45 years. He was among the first settlers of Dallas county. His Christian integrity had given him an irreproachable character. During the past year his ill health prevented his regular attendance at his church, but it was his delight to be there. The funeral occurred March 31 at Ebenezer church. The widow and children are well nigh heart broken. May God comfort and help them to emulate this one they loved so.
