Mrs. E.E. Lindsey

The subject of this notice, Mrs. E.E. Lindsey was born Feb. 28, 1843, baptized in White River in the fall of 1853 united in  marriage with E.H. Lindsey the 27th of Oct. 1875, and departed this life Oct. 2, 1881. The deceased was a Christian, and in her daily walk the principals of Christianity were fully exemplified. As a wife, mother and step-mother, she could not have been excelled. Unto all God's people there remaineth a rest, and with those who have preceded her she rests from the disturbance of passion, the vanity of pursuit and the vexation of disappointment; rest from all the sins and sorrows of this miserable world; rest which shall not be merely an indolent cessation from labor, but a full and satisfactory enjoyment.
"Rest dearest one but,
Forgive ye blest, the tributary tear.
That mourns your exit from a world like this;
Forgive the wish that would have kept you here,
And stayed your progress to the state of bliss."

[ We tender our most earnest sympathy to brother Lindsey in his sad bereavement and humbly pray out heavenly Father to deal gently with him and his little motherless ones. - Eds.]
