Bro. Weld

Brother Weld, born in 1836; died April 15, 1896; aged 60 years. Bro Weld was born in Ohio; lived some time in Illinois where he married  Mis W. A. Joyner in 1856. They moved to Arkansas in 1856 and settled in Deview and united with the Grand Hope Baptist Church. He lived an exemplary Christian life; loved his Church and its worship. His place in the Church and community will be hard to fill. Having lived a righteous life his death was in sweet peace.
He leaves a brother, sister, four children and many friends to remember his death. May they all meet him on the shining shore.
His Pastor

Arkansas Baptist, May 6, 1896, age 15

Note: The obit did not give a first name for Bro. Weld, but the 1880 Arkansas census has Lewis H Weld, born 1836 Ohio in De view, Woodruff county.
