Caroline V. Stovall

Mrs. Caroline V. Stovall consort of R.A. Stovall died in the town of Cabot at her home on the 16th of May 1885. She had been the subject of severe afflictions for many years, yet she bore it with great patience.
She was born in Grenada, Mississippi on the 17th of April 1839, was born again and united with the Baptist church in 1857. Was married on the 13th of March 1859. They soon emigrated to the Prairie county, afterward Lonoke county and settled near where she died. And united with the church. The writer can give testimony to the fact that she was a good church member, as he was her pastor for many years. She loved the church. I visited her often for the past eighteen years, and frequently during her late illness, and conversed with her frequently on her departure, and the prospect of the future, and she gave every appearance of her readiness and willingness to depart, and be at rest. Truly it may be said how blessed are the righteous when they die. She left a husband and three children and a large circle of friends to mourn their loss. May God of all grace support them. R.J. C.
