Ellen E. Barnett

Ellen E Barnett died at her home in Van Buren county, Ark., March 25, 1895, aged 12 years, 2 months and 26 days.
Ellen was born in Etowah county, Alabama, December 29, 1882. She was moved several times and was finally brought to Van Buren county, Ark., in December 1890. Ellen's absence is a void in the family and community that can never be filled. She was kind, dutiful, and obedient girl, who loved her parents and was friendly to all. Her last word was "Ma". She leaves a father and mother, four brothers ans a host of friends behind her. She was not a member of any church, but she renounced everything of a worldly nature before her illness seized her. Funeral services were by Eld. W.F. Sims.
Ellen, rest till God shall call,
Thy kindred to thy side;
Until, like thee, their lot shall fall
With Jesus to abide.
S.B. Barnett
Her brother
Arkansas Baptist, April 3, 1895, page 8
