John E. Bateman

John E., son of J.S. and Laura L. Bateman, died August 17, 1896; aged 22 years, 7 months and 17 days.
Bro. Bateman professed a hope in Christ in 1893, and united with the Mine Creek Baptist church at Nashville, Ark, in August 1894. He was a loyal Christian, a dutiful son, an exemplary citizen, loved by all who knew him. May  the Lord comfort them in all their sad bereavement.
