Sister A. E. Lovelady was born the 4th day of March, 1839 in Noxubee county, Mississippi. She professed religion in her 14th year at a Methodist meeting held by Brothers Box and Calloway, after which she joined the Missionary Baptist Church and was baptized by Brother William Lloyed.
She was married to G.O. Lovelady the 23rd day of March 1869. Then moved with her husband to Arkansas in March 1872 and settled in Logan county, there she and her husband put their letters into the Missionary Baptist church. There she lived until death.
The cold hand of death overtook her=August 19, 1883.
She and her husband lived together 24 years, 4 months and 27 days.
Sister Lovelady was a faithful member of the church about 27 years, She was faithful unto death, and the good book says: “ I will give thee a crown of Life,” Rev. 2:10. “ Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.” Rev. 14:13.
Oh, blessed thought to the faithful follower of Christ. When absent from the body they present with the Lord 2 Cor. 5:8.
Sister Lovelady was a good wife and a good mother. She a husband and four dear children, and a host of friends to mourn her loss, but we realize that our loss is her eternal gain,
From her pastor, friend and humble brother.
