John B. Rankin

John B. Rankin was born in Mississippi in 1847; married Miss Elizabeth Moreland in 1877, and moved to Arkansas in 1879. In 1886 he joined the Baptists and lived a consistent member until God called him to rest. Heart disease and pneumonia caused his death, which occurred January 15, 1896. He had been in ill health for some time and often said he did not fear death. He leaves a father, wife, three daughters and four sons to mourn his death. We all pray they may be united in heaven.
