Wife of
John H.W.Overton.

MRS. SUSAN W. OVERTON Arkansas Baptist Newspaper October 24, 1900 page 15 col 2
Mrs. Susan W. Overton, daughter of J.C. Wharton, was born in Lawrence District,
S.C., September 23, 1836, moved with her parents to Tennessee, thence to Arkansas
in 1848. She accepted Christ and was baptized in 1849. Married to Mr. J.H.W. Overton,
August 3, 1854. With her husband, they settled in Bradley (now Cleveland) county, and
began their youthful married life near Toledo by settling down to farm life. They were
not afraid of hard work and soon opened a good farm and by industry and good management,
prosperity was the result. On this same farm they lived and reared a large family-ten
children, eight sons and two daughters. Four of these preceded their mother to the "home
over there." In 1860 Bro. Overton was converted and was baptized by Eld. Solomon Gardner
into the fellowship of New Hope church. Immediately he and his wife went into the
organization of Zion church, in which she lived a faithful and zealous member till her
death, which occurred at 1 o'clock a.m. June 3, 1900. Her death was the most triumphant
the writer ever witnessed. She was perfectly conscious till the last, and called all to
her bedside and bade us all goodbye. She told us not to weep, but to meet here where there
is no weeping. Her children were all present except one. My language fails, my pen is
too weak, to describe the death-bed scenes of Sister Overton. Her life was a constant
living power, but her death the greatest of all. May our dear Savior comfort Bro. Overton
in these his saddest moments of life, and all the children and grandchildren meet one
another on the shining shores of sweet deliverance. The deceased was my eldest sister
and the wife of Rev. J.H.W. Overton.
