Cullman Tribune, issue of 14 Apr 1892:
Died at her home, near Walter Ala, March 24, 1892, Mrs Amanda Barnett, wife of J W Barnett, age 40 years. She had been a member of the Missionary Baptist Church 28 years, was a devoted Christian, lived by all who knew her. She lingered about three months, after she was confined to her bed, with consumption.
On the evening of her death she called her family around her and taking each of them by the hand she told them to live so as to meet her in the better land, that she longed to go home and be at rest.
When she had ended her talk she looked up at her two daughters, who were weeping by her bedside, and like the blessed Savior, who provided a home for his mother in his last hour, she said, "Take care of my poor old mother and my darling baby." Then clapping her hands she shouted, "Glory, glory, this is the sweetest sickness that I have ever had. I see such a sweet place. I would not give it for ten thousand such worlds as this."
She rested a few hours and then raising her eyes she said, "Oh Lord, if it is thy will take me home to Jesus right now" then closing her eyes passed away without a struggle. She leaves her mother, husband and seven children and a host of friends to mourn her loss.
May the Lord sanctify their bereavement to the good of their souls. Truly a good woman has passed away.
