Barker Halbert

At Prattsville, Ark., on 7th day of Feb., of typhoid-pneumonia, Miss Barker Halbert, in the 42nd year of her age. Miss Halbert was born in the State of Mississippi, in the year 1840. She moved to this State with her parents when quite young and in the year 1859, professed faith in Christ, and was baptized into the fellowship of Philadelphia church, by Elder Joel Watson, she remained a consistent member until the day of her death. In all her relations of Christian, sister or friend in all the varied vocations of life, Miss Barker was the same genial, gentle spirit, the same kind sister and affectionate friend. She leaves many brothers and sisters to mourn her loss, but we feel assured that this separation will only be temporary, and that her many friends will soon, yes possibly soon, meet her where parting will be no more.                                                            A.
