Rebecca Parker

Born in North Carolina in 1839, moved to Tennessee early in life; professed religion and joined Big Creek Baptist church. Moved to Saline county, Ark., in 1888 and joined Union church. She leaves five sons and four daughters bereaved and a host of friends to sympathize with them. The funeral was conducted by Eld. C.C. Wornock at Union Baptist church, September 25, 1896. Many loving but sad hearts followed her remains to the cemetery, where she now silently waits to meet her Lord in glory.
  " We love her, yes, we love her,
     But the Master loves her more,
     And he has sweetly called her
     To heaven's shining shore"

Arkansas Baptist, December 2, 1896, page 13
