Orlando E. Compton

Born in Lawrence [Laurens] county, S. C., April 9, 1853; moved with his parents to Hempstead county, Ark., in 1856; professed religion in 1870 and joined the church in 1872. In 1874 he married Miss Martha Copeland, a most estimable woman. To them were born eight children, Bro. Compton suffered intensely for two years, but it was the crucible which purified the gold. Dear bereaves ones, think of and imitate his purity, and may God grant that we all meet in that beautiful home of which he said, " Meet me there."
