Annie Powell

At her home near Charleston, Ark. Annie Powell died May 19, 1897. Born in Jackson County, Virginia, July 2, 1868.
Sister Powell professed a hope in Christ July 1894. Joined Baptist Union church in Logan county, Ark.; baptized by Bro. Dodson. Remained with Union church until joined by letter to Pilgrim Rest church in 1895. Sister Powell was a devoted Christian, a kind companion, a loving affectionate mother. Husband, children, weep not, for she is only sleeping, the sleep, the blessed sleep, from which none never weep.
Thomas J. Flynn
Arkansas Baptist, July 28, 1897, page 15
