H.H. Atkinson

Born in Noxubee county, Miss., Sept. 26, 1854. Died at Star City Ark. Dec. 11 1896. Aged 42 years 2 months and 15 days.
Bro. Atkinson came with his parents to Arkansas when but a child. In 1864 he joined the Baptist church and remained faithful until death. He, with his family, moved to Star City two years ago and united with this church. He was always ready to give a reason for his hope. An affectionate husband loving father and faithful friend. Always encouraging his pastor and aiding his church by his prayers, counsel and means. He recently entered the profession of law and was growing rapidly in favor and had a bright future before him. He leaves a loving wife, three children, two brothers and two sisters sorely bereaved. May God sanctify this providence to the good of relatives and friends. D.E. Gambrell
