Nelson C. Varnell

Nelson C., only son of Rev. T. J. Varnell, departed this life on the morning of April 22nd, at the residence of his uncle, H.N. Royster, aged 10 years. 
Nelson was a good boy, truthful, kind-heated and obedient. He was the idol of his father and sisters, loved greatly by all who knew him. But relatives, weep not for him nor wish him back. Live so that when your trumpet shall sound to call you home, you will meet the beloved boy where parting will be no more.

" Thou art gone to the grave, but we need not deplore, thee
Though sorrow and darkness encompass the tomb,
Thy Savior has passed through its portals before thee,
And the lamps of his love is thy guide through the gloom."
April 26, 1891  - His Uncle
