M.M. Mashburn

M.M. Mashburn died near Fairview, Ark., July 8, 1895. Aged 78 Years. He was born in South Carolina in 1817. Moved to Alabama in early life; thence to Arkansas in 1866. He professed religion in 1842 and served as deacon 45 years, and was one of the most useful members in his church and community. Surely the world is better for his having lived in it. He raised a large family who are nearly all Baptists. Just before his death he selected Bro. Kelly and another minister to conduct the funeral, and also selected the songs to be sung. He leaves a wife and many friends to mourn their loss. Though he is dead, yet our faith says he lives forever. Thank God for this hope.
