Ella Pettigrew

Died November 4, 1889, infant daughter of W. T.  and Rosa Pettigrew.
Sweet babe, given to father and mother for a few months, then gathered to him who said: " Of such is the kingdom of heaven" This is a case in which " the sun has set while it is still day." She is free, but we toil on in sorrow and tears. But out of the shadows that envelope the bereaved, there comes the voice of Jesus, saying: "Come unto me and I will give thee rest."   F. P. T
Arkansas Baptist, January 23, 1890, page 8
