In Waterford, Miss., Saturday, October 27, 1891, Annie Harper only daughter of Louise and Douglas Hamilton aged 5 years and 5 months. A thrill of sorrow and sympathy was in every heart at the announcement Sabbath morning, that this lovely child had closed her beautiful brown eyes on these earth scenes forever. While little feet were gathering here to learn the Savior's name, she had joined the glad throng "Around the throne in Heaven." None who ever saw little Annie, could forget her rare winsomeness, her light tripping busy footsteps about the home, her sweet sayings, wise and womanly beyond her years. They laid her beneath the falling leaves, and who can measure the joys and hopes buried in that little mound. Though we know she is safe with the sweet young aunt and honored gray- haired uncle whose joint name she bore, such sorrow would be beyond our poor human weakness to bear, were it not for the message left us by the blessed Comforter, who takes "these little ones who believe on Him" to his own arms, and says "Let not your heart be troubled".
On November 30, 1918, the sweet spirit of Mrs. Sallie May Young wife of E. D. Young, four miles east of Waterford, took it's flight from a world of sin and sorrow to the beautiful City of God, where all is sunshine and happiness, and where pain and sorrow come no more. Mrs. Young was a pure, sweet Christian wife, and was loved by all who knew her. She was always ready, willing and anxious to lend a helping hand to all she could. She was first stricken with a severe attack of influenza which was followed by pneumonia, and was ill only a few days. She was laid to rest in Spring Creek Cemetery Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the funeral being conducted by Rev. J. P. Horton. She is survived by a husband, three small children, two boys and one girl. A mother, Mrs. Willie Moore, five sisters, Mrs. J.C. Young, Mrs. W. M. Young, Mrs. A. C. Young, Mrs. R. C. Johnson, and Miss Clyde Moore. Two brothers, Mr. W. C. and J. L. Moore, and a number of friends and relatives who mourn at her departure.
RE: Boling's in Truslow Cemetery Your Thomas Jefferson appears to be the brother of my great grandfather Benjamin Frederick Boling. Both children of Charles Spence Boling and Irena Atkins. So that would make us distant cousins. Thanks again!
Boling's in Truslow Cemetery I see you are the manager for several Boling memorials in the Truslow Cemetery in Tate County, MS. Is there any relation? I am looking for information on John Henderson Boling. Do you know who his parents are? Thank you!
