Emma Geneva Hays

In this city on the 6th inst. of consumption, Miss Emma Geneva Hays, aged 20 years and 1 month.
Sister Hays was born in Lyon county, Ky., February 6, 1856; in 1869 she professed faith in Christ and was baptized into the fellowship of Third Street Baptist church in Covington, Ky., by Rev. George F. Pentecost. In 1871 she moved with her parents to Louisville, and united with the Pilgrim's Rest Baptist church; moved to Little Rock in 1875, and was in the organization of the Eighth Street Baptist church of this city. Sister Hys was truly a consistent christian, and much loved by her brethren and sisters. She was confined to her bed for several months, and bore her afflictions with patience and submission. She was conscious to the last moment and died in the full triumph of a living faith. B.
