Mary E. Mann

Sister Mary E. Mann was born in Georgia, September 12, 1831; professed religion very young and joined the Baptist church being baptized by Eld. A. Fitzgerald. Her maiden was Brown and she was married to Jas. Mann July 20, 1851. To them were born six children, three of whom passed over the river while young and three are living, to wit:  Mrs. Si. Boss, Mrs. George Suttle and J. A. Mann, now of Ft. Smith.
Sister Mann died February 3, 1896, as happy as she could be; her last words were, "My soul's so happy." She told her son that  she had lived a life that caused her not to ear death. She was a sister that had many friends and no enemies. She was a member of Boonesville Baptist church at the time of her death, and the writer attended her funeral February 5, 1896, at Glendale graveyard. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."
