Enoch Mitchell

Enoch Mitchell was born in Poinsett county, Ark., October 11, 1827, and died at his home in Harrisburg in the same county, February 5, 1896. He was married to Catherine Greenwood March 1, 1848. bro. Mitchell was three times elected treasurer of Poinsett county, and did for many years an active and upright mercantile business. In 1864 he was converted and joined the Baptist church, and ever afterwards lived a useful and consistent member till the Lord of Harvest bade him to cease from his sufferings and toil and enter into rest. Bro. Mitchell was a great sufferer for many months before his death and was thereby deprived of the pleasures of the sanctuary; and death, though it came suddenly , found him in the enjoyment of the Christian's hope and faith. He was a loving husband and kind father, And may grace and peace of the Heavenly Father abide with and bring at last into the heavenly rest the widow and fatherless.
