C. E. Emerson

C. E. Emerson died March 3, 1891  near Austin, Lonoke county Arkansas.
This brother was born in Madison county, Tennessee, May 1831. He fell dead on the floor, on the above named date at his home. He had been a citizen of that vicinity for nearly forty years, and a member and deacon of Austin Baptist Church. I had been his pastor for sixteen years, from first to last, knew him intimately, and can say he was a good and faithful man in every department of life, as a husband, father, neighbor, citizen, church member and an officer. I have known him for twenty five years, all of which he has been afflicted with a bad sore leg that gave him much pain. He left a wife, one son, one sister and one brother to mourn his loss; many dear friends having preceded him to the glory land. May the grace of God sustain the widow and all surviving relatives and friends is the prayer of this pastor.
