William H. Watt

Died at Hot Springs, Arkansas, January 25th, 1891, age forty-three years.
Bro. Watt was born in Gibson county, Tennessee, and emigrated to Polk county, Arkansas in 1866. In 1869, he married Miss M.G. Williams. In 1875 they  moved to Hot Springs, where he has been in business ever since. He professed religion in his fifteenth year and joined the Methodists, but for years regarded his baptism as invalid. In 1886 he united with the Baptist church, and he and his wife were baptised by Dr. W.A. Clark. His death was in the triumph in faith. His last words were: " I must leave you all soon, and go to my eternal home." He leaves a loving wife, two noble sons and two affectionate daughters, who, with a host of friends mourn his death. The sons and oldest daughter are members of the church. Funeral services were conducted by Pastor Reaves. May the Lord comfort and keep the weeping family.
