Dr John Gibbs Arnall
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 29, 1844
Death: Jan. 25, 1879


It has pleased our Heavenly Father in the dispensation of his Providence to remove from our midst our beloved brother, Dr. J.G. Arnall, who died of pneumonia on the 24th inst., at his residence in Carrollton, Ga.
Dr. Arnall had been for six years a citizen of Carrollton, with the exception of the last year, during which he resided in the city of Newnan, being engaged in business in that city; but had recently moved to his home in Carrollton and
resumed the practice of his profession. During his residence here he had by
his amiable and courteous deportment, endeared himself to the hearts of many citizens of this county who deeply mourn his loss.

Dr. Arnall was, at the date of his death, about thirty-four years of age, having been, from his early youth, a consistent member of the Baptist church and for nearly two years an ordained deacon, the duties and responsibilities of which office he failed not to appreciate, being in any eminent degree possessed of the scriptural ualifications, grace, temperate, of Godly conversation and having a good report of them that are without.

Among his last words was a repetition of the short but expressive sentence found in the 7th verse of the 39th Psalm, "My hope is in Thee." It may truly be said of Dr. Arnall, he was a devoted husband and affectionate father; as a citizen, skillful, kind and attentive; as a Christian, meek and gentle, but firm and unwavering; as a Sunday school worker, zealous and untiring. But on earth, his labors of love are ended.

"Death came with cold hands and his eyelids have closed,
and laid his cold corpse in the tomb.
His soul has ascended to eternal repose,
Above, in his heavenly home.

His loved habitation and garden adieu,
No longer his footsteps ye greet,
A mansion celestial stands full in his view,
A paradise welcomes his feet."

In penning the above, the writer has feebly expressed the sentiment of a large circle of friends whose hearts beat in tender sympathy with the bereaved family of our departed brother, whose true comfort is found in the words of the blessed Savior:

"Blessed are the dead, which die in the Lord from henceforth, yes, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them." W.W. Roop, Carrollton, Jan. 27, 1879.
