Died at the old homestead in Williamson Co. Tenn., July 15th 1876, Sister Rachel Cummins, aged 90 years, 5 months and 10 days. Sister Cummins obeyed the gospel in July 1843--was baptized by Bro. Jas. C. Anderson.
Sister Cummins was an earnest, zealous Christian, and until within a few years past, when old age and infirmity prevented, her seat in the congregation of the saints was rarely vacant. Being kindly cared for, and her wants administered to by her faithful children and grandchildren, she passed away from the world in the hope of a blissful immortality, and has left an example of devotion to the Master's service worthy of imitation. Aunt Rachel will long be remembered and cherished affectionately in the memories of her numerous offspring, and by a large circle of brethren, sisters and friends--who mourn for her, but not as those who have no hope. She is not lost, only gone before. Let all who knew her worth, prepare in life to meet her in a brighter and better state of experience, where sorrow and trouble can never come, and where the weary will be at rest.
