Rev E F Appling
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 16, 1840
Death: Jan. 22, 1929

January 24, 1929

Rev. E.F. Appling, aged 88, retired Baptist minister, died at the home of his son, Graves Appling, 15 miles north of Rison in Grant county, Tuesday, following a long period of failing health.
Rev. Appling, who was a Confederate veteran, had been in the ministry for more than 60 years. He was a charter member of the Taylor lodge No. 206, F. and A.M. located at Grapevine, having been a member of the fraternity for 53 years. He was one of the best-known citizens of this section, being prominent in church and fraternal circles. For a number of years a Masonic celebration has been held by his lodge in honor of his birthday, at which the attendance sometimes runs into the thousands.
Funeral services were held Wednesday morning at Clements cemetery near Grapevine, conducted by the Revs. Geo. F. Moody of this city and J.W. Kelly of Sheridan. Burial ceremonies were in charge of the Masons of Taylor and neighboring lodges.
He is survived by three sons, Graves, Ben and John Appling of near Grapevine, and one daughter, Mrs. Hattie Reep, of Pine Bluff.
