J. D. Gist

J. D. Gist was born July 23, 1849, died March 12, 1897. He was baptized into the fellowship of Greenwood church in 1872 and was ordained deacon in 1886. Bro. Gist was truly a good and faithful servant of the Lord. He leaves a wife, several small children and a host of friends to mourn. May God bless his widow and children and may they follow his example.
