Myra L. Maxwell

Daughter of John and Amanda Thornton Maxwell. Born in Tate county, Miss; baptized into Hickory Grove Baptist church 1889, by pastor E.L. Wesson; came to Searcy, Ark., with her parents in January 1891; died July 26, 1897, after an illness of five days. Myra was one of our brightest and best girls. She completed her education more than a year ago and had been engaged in teaching, with flattering prospects of a useful life. Her bright face and nobility of character won her many friends. Sadly she is missed in her home, her church and the entire circle in which she moved. The funeral was preached in the Baptist church, by the writer, to a large congregation of sorrowing friends. Text, Romans 5:12. May God comfort the heart broken family with the precious hope of meeting where there is no more death.
