*************************************************
Information from F.A.G. Member #46607715:

"The Gospel Messenger", Volume 16, No. 8 August 1894:

Wm. H. Smith.

Died of consumption, W. H. Smith, in Lee County, Ala., June 5, 1894, in the fortieth year of his age, leaving a wife and four children in very destitute and needy circumstances. He was received into the fellowship of the church at Mount Olive (Primitive Baptist Church), in July, 1893, but was never able to attend the church meetings, or do but little if any work for support of his needy family. Referring to closing incidents in his life, Brother W. J. Parker writes, "I had a long talk with him two days before his death, and on several occasions some time before, and he said he was ready for death, patiently waiting the Lord's will and time." He was the son of Mr. T. L. and Mrs. S. C. Smith, of Chambers County, Ala. By the kindness of brethren and friends, a suitable burial case and other things were procured, and after a comforting discourse preached by Elder J. S. Baxley, our lamented Brother Smith was decently put in the grave in Union Grove Cemetery, there to wait the voice of God, when the dead in Christ shall be raised incorruptible.

- W.M.M. (Elder William M. Mitchell)
