Eliza Green Vaughn

Eliza Green, was born in Georgia, November 27, 1839, and died at Stamps, Ark, January 21, 1896. Was married to A. Vaughn September 17, 1870; professed  faith in Christ adn joined the Baptist church when 14 years old, and lived a consistent member and most devoted Christian to the end of life. She was for many years a most zealous worker in the church and Sunday school, and even in failing health she used all the power of her influence as a humble follower of the Savior to be faithful in the discharge of their duties, as members of the body of Christ on earth. When the end came her faith was unwavering and her way clear.  She said repeatedly that she was not afraid to die; she knew in whom she had believed. She died as she had lived, trusting only in the merits of the blood of Christ for eternal life. She leaves a husband, daughter and a large circle of friends to mourn her death. To all of them we say, weep not for her as for one who has no hope, but ever live so that we may all be with her when the Lord comes to make up his jewels.
