Eld. J.B. Yeager

Born in Miss. Sept. 23, 1823, Died in Texas August 20, 1897. Bro. Yeager moved to Dallas county, Ark. and joined Tulip church (now New Hope). He afterwards went into the organization of Holly Springs church about 1845. He joined the Masons at Holly Springs in 1855. He lived a consistent member of this church and lodge until his death. He was ordained to the ministry June 27, 1856, by Aaron Yates and R.M. Thrasher. He was a faithful, pioneer, preacher and a landmark Baptist, he did great good in the ministry spending most of his life preaching without pay; but his reward will be great in heaven.
Resolved that we bow submissively to the Lords will and that we extend our sympathy to the bereaved children and that a copy of this be sent to the Arkansas Baptist and also be placed on our church record.
