W. C. Looney

Died at  his home near Mt Comfort, Washington County, Arkansas, January 2, 1898. Aged 55 years, 1 month and 29 days.
Bro. Looney was born at Nashville, Tenn. He professed religion at the age of 16 years and united with the Presbyterian Church. In 1882 he moved to Crawford County, Arkansas; thence to Washington County, where he died. Though all his religious life he lived a close and dutiful Christian. Some three years before his death, he changed his church relation, uniting with the New Hope Baptist Church near Johnson, Ark., and was baptized by Eld. G. P. Hanks. Bro. Looney had suffered the last five years of his life from a stroke of paralysis. He bore his suffering with great patience and Christian fortitude till death relieved him, passing away gently and willingly to his home above. Thus passed away an exemplary Christian, a devoted husband, and an indulgent father. he leaves a grief stricken widow and five children to mourn their loss.
