Wm. P. Farmer

At the home of his son-in-law, F. M. Golightly, near Palestine, Ark., Wm. P. Farmer, May 8, 1890.
Bro. Farmer was born in Abbeville district, South Carolina, in 1804, emigrated to Arkansas in 1841, and died after a lingering illness of over four months. He bore his sufferings with Christian fortitude. At the time of his death he was a member of Big Creek Baptist church. He served a Justice of Peace of Crittenden county, where he first settled.
He leaves behind him to mourn their loss an aged wife of eighty-two years, one daughter and a large number of relatives and friends. May God in his wisdom and mercy bless those that are left to mourn their loss.
   His body rests beneath the sod,
   His soul rests in the arms of God.
