J.J. Emerson

Elder J.J. Emerson, born JUne 11th, 1862, died at his home in West Fork, Ark., August 5, 1891.
Bro. Emerson suffered for a year with that dreadful disease, consumption. He bore his affliction with much patience, saying "the Lord's will be done." He was resigned to die, and died triumphant.
He was married eight years ago and leaves a wife and three little children to mourn their loss, but they will meet again. He who said. "I will be a father to the fatherless and a husband to the widow" will watch over, comfort and strengthen them. He will not forsake those who call upon him. May he watch over the dear ones left behind.
