Edmond Richardson Gresham

Little Edmond Richardson, son of A.L. and Gattie Gresham died February 1, at 2.a.m.
Edmond was the favorite and pet of the town. His sudden and unexpected death shocked the whole community, resulting as it did, from a kick from a horse.
His remains were laid in the churchyard at Kingsland, Arkansas, to await the resurrection morn. May God bless and comfort the heart-broken parents. Edmond, "Thou art gone to the grave; but we will not deplore thee. Though sorrows and darkness encompass the tomb, the Savior has passed through its postals before thee, and the lamp of his love is thy guide through the gloom."
B. N. Hulteman

Arkansas Baptist, Little Rock, Arkansas
February 23, 1890, page 8, col. 3
