James Garrison

James Garrison was born Aug. 8, 1863, and died near Van Buren, Crawford county, Ark., Nov. 14, 1890.
Bro. Garrison was a consistent member of the Baptist church, and died in full triumph of the living faith. It seems indeed a strange dispensation of God's providence, that he should take from us our brother, so young, and so full of promise and usefulness, yet we know he doeth all things well, and we bow in submission to his will.

"Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the storm of life has fled;
Then in heaven with joy to great thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed."

By order of the church.
E.T. Blair
T.M. Garner

Arkansas Baptist, Little Rock, Arkansas
