Martha F. Nutt

Matha F. Nutt, wife of Rev. Thos. Nutt. Born Oct. 23, 1842 in Tippah county, Miss. Professed religion Aug. 1861, and united with the Baptist church at Pine Grove by baptism; married Eld. Thos. Nutt Jan 2, 1870, died April 14, 1891.
Sister Nutt was one of the constituent members of the Cleveland church; a devoted and exemplary member, highly respected by all who knew her. In the death of Sister Nutt the church has lost a worthy and useful member, Bro. Nutt a deserving and pious companion, her children a loving mother and a safe protector, and the community an excellent, accommodating neighbor. We mourn the loss, but meekly bow in humble submission to him that doeth all things well.
The entire community joins in extending to the bereaved family our heart-felt sympathy, and say, "Look forward to the time when, with the blessed Savior, we can and expect to again see Sister Nutt, as she is transformed from the invalid of three years of suffering to as prominent a saint as she was a wife, mother, sister, and neighbor."
Weep not, blessed are they who fall asleep in Jesus.
