J.T. McKinney

Elder J.T. McKinney died at Harrisburg, Ark., Feb. 6, 1891.
He was the son of J.B. and sister E. J. McKinney. Born in Alabama, June 30, 1868. He professed religion and united with Bethel Baptist church, near Harrisburg, in 1883, and was licensed to preach the Gospel in September 1886. Bro. McKinney adorned his profession by an orderly life, and was always prompt and liberal to his church. His father having passed over to "the promised land." this young brother had largely to care for his widowed mother and orphan brothers and sisters. Sacredly, tenderly he performed these duties. He was a model young man, he preached as opportunity offered and with acceptance. May God bless his bereaved mother and family.
