Mary Angeline Hanson

Died:  January 3rd, at the residence of her father, Mr. Jno. S. McDearmon, Judsonia, White county, Ark., Mary Angeline Hanson, wife of Benj. F. Hanson. Mrs Hanson was born in King county, Tenn., Sept. 1850; united with the Sulphur Springs Baptist church (now Platean) in 1874 and married in 1877. At the early age of twenty-three she is called away leaving a child too young to realize his loss, and one has gone before. Mrs. H. belonged to a family whose tie of kindred nothing but death could sever, not even a devoted husband could more sincerely mourn or deeply feel this affliction than do her loving parents.

With loss of earth in them than heaven"
