Sarah C.S. Honeyman

Born March 23rd, 1866. Died September 6th, 1891, aged twenty-five years, five months, and fourteen days.
She was wife of Geo. W. Honeyman, a member of Oak Bower Baptist church. Another has faded on earth, to bloom n the Paradise of God. She died with consumption and suffered sadly for several months, until God saw fit to take her from earth's sorrows, to live with him in glory. She was a conservative character, her life a model of propriety. Her death a triumph of faith. She leaves a husband and three little children to mourn their loss. May God aid this bereaved brother in raising these little ones in each way that they may follow mother, as she followed Christ. If they ever see her more, it will be in heaven. She is not dead, but sleeping. God grant that the husband and children be gathered into the city of God at last. Amen.
Resolved,  That a copy of this obituary be sent to the Arkansas Baptist, and the Fort Smith Elevator for publication, and a copy be given to the bereaved husband. Done by order of the church in conference.
J.W. Mashburn, H.G. Johnson, I.M. Clary, Committee.
