Charity Adaline Dodds Cross was born May 11, 1851, was married to Jas. H. Cross November 28, 1878. She died at her home near Neoga, IL on February 8, 1891 aged 38 years 8 months and 27 days. The deceased made a profession of religion at an early age of 14 years and united with the Missionary Baptist church with which she lived a consistent and respected member till she was called to her reward. Sister Cross leaves a husband, three children, a sister, two brothers and a large concourse of friends to mourn her loss. Although the deceased was a great sufferer, she bore it all with Christian fortitude, and while the dreaded disease consumption was preying on her vitals, she murmured not, but bore all and expressed herself as having no fear of the future. The thoughts of leaving her companion, children and friends here, was the only thing that caused her to regret that she had to leave this world of tribulations and disappointments. It is a blessed though indeed, for the child of God, that when we are through with the trials and troubles of this life that there is a rest to them beyond this vale of tears. Let us bow in humble submission to the will of Him who doth all things well. And try to be reconciled to the wonderful workings of providence and try to look on the bright side of life, and try to live while in this world to the honor of God, discharging every known duty that awaits us, with alacrity and delight. And now may the Lord be pleased to pour into the bleeding hearts the balm of everlasting consolation and enable them to say: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven". The funeral services were conducted at Old Concord Baptist church by Rev. Allen Gaskill of the M.E. church and M. B. Moffit of the Baptist church, at which her remains were lain away to await the second coming of our Lord. Even so, Lord Jesus come quickly. Amen
