Elder Jonathan Hunt

Born July 2, 1842, died January 24, 1890, at his home in Scott county, Arkansas, of a stroke of apoplexy and (Hemiplegia) paralysis; on the farm that he was born on.
He professed faith in Christ, 1858, and was in the midst of his usefulness, yet fully ripe.
Most deeply do we feel our loss; yet we will not murmur at the goodness of God to one of his fauthful servants. No! sleep on, dear brother. Let thy happy spirit dwell with the dear Savior thou loved so well. By and by, by the grace of God, we will meet you in that happy home where Jesus is. The fruit of your warm exhortations will follow thee, "Till then, adieu, most dearly beloved."
