At Conway, Ark., July 7th, 1890, Elbert Emerson, son of Joseph and Roanna Fitzpatrick; born August 18th, 1884.
Though little Elbert only lived six years, his patience in enduring the anguish of long sickness had developed in a marked degree his moral faculties. His family testify that in fortitude and patience he taught them many valuable lessons. The funeral was conducted by Elder Jackson, and was well attended. The mother said: " We expect to meet our little boy in the city of the Lord"
