Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 24, 1834
Death: Dec. 27, 1910

Venerable Citizen Gone S. R. Boggs Succumbs To Attack of Pneumonia Tuesday Evening at 6 o'clock After Short Illness. Mr.S. R. Boggs, a venerable and hightly respected Christian gentleman, expired Tuesday evening at 6 o'clock at his home in the eastern portion of the city after a brief attack of pneumonia, and was buried Wednesday afternoon in the Forrest City cemetery, Rev. J. R. Nelson, officating. Deceased was born near Holly Springs , Miss., November 24, 1834, where he lived until the breaking out of the civil war, when he entered the ranks of the Southern army and did valiant service for the lost cause. After the war he returned to the South and was married in 1868 to Miss Mattie P. Lamb, near Grand Junction, Tennessee. The family removed to Arkansas and settled in Forrest City in 1881, where the deceased was held in high esteem for his sterling, manly qualities and for his unswerving devotion and loyalty to his family and friends. He is survived by a heartbroken widow and one son, R. B. Boggs, and two little grandchildren, who are deeply grieved and bowed down in sincere contrition and sorrow. In years gone by Mr. Boggs nursed the junior editor of this paper through a critical illness, and sat patiently at his bedside night after night for forty long and weary nights. He was faithful and true, kind and gentle as a woman, and we ever afterwards esteemed him highly. Our heart goes out to them in this dark and bitter hour, but more especially do we condole with the frail and saintly little lad who had been bereft of her beloved companion in the twilight of life when perhaps, she feels, there is little left for her but to watch for the last golden sunset that will reunite them again in those ethereal regions where there is no death and no parting. May God comfort her dear heart and shower richest blessings upon her is the prayer of The Times and her legion of friends here.(NOTE:THANKS BRENDA FOR FINDING THIS OBIT IN THE FC TIMES NEWSPAPER)
