J.D. Adcock

Morrison's Bluff, Ark.

J.D. Adcock died on March 4, 1895. Bro. Adcock died with triumphant faith, and spoke frequently to the effect that his long cherished hope would soon develop into a beautiful reality. He said "religion has always been safe to live by, now I know it is good to die by." Blessed truth. He  was a deacon in Bethel Baptist church. The writer, as his pastor for many years, has been sustained by his prayers, sympathy, counsel and financial support as he has enjoyed such from few others. The loss to the community, the Masonic fraternity, the church and the family is almost irreparable, but his gain exceeds our loss. God comfort and save the bereaved ones.
