Mastin Ashcraft

Died of pneumonia at his residence,  Saline county., Ark, February 24, 1859. He bore his extreme sufferings with great patience for five days, giving in  his last moments evidence of his preparation for death. It was the writer's lot to witness the heart rending scenen of the final worldly separation of the husband and father from the wife and six little weeping children, pleading that the Lors would protect them. Brethren let them share your prayers.
