T. W. Quinn, Jr

T.W. Quinn, Jr. Died at Prattsville, Ark., on the 18th of February ult.. of malignant tumor of the bowels, in the 26th year of his age. Deceased was born and reared here, and at an early age professed faith in Christ and joined the Baptist Church and was a member when he died. Tommy left sufficient evidence of a well-grounded hope and died in the triumphs of a living faith.
Two years ago he was married to Miss Mattie Messenger, of this place by whom he left one little boy to survive him. May the Lord bless his dear wife  and son and may they too, when the summons comes be found ready to meet him who will be waiting and watching for them.
( It was our privilege to baptize Bro. Quinn and to enjoy the hospitality of his father's home for seven days when Tommy was a lad. We share with the family this sad bereavement and invoke the presence of the comforter in their hearts.  Ed.)
