Crittenden County Press, 8 Dec 1910:
W. B. Crider was born April 10, 1828, died Oct. 26, 1910 aged 82 years, 6 months and 16 days. He professed faith in Christ when 19 years of age at Piney Fork camp meeting and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Piney Fork. He was made a ruling Elder in 1851 and served as same for 59 years. He married first to Arminta Crider in 1849, a little over a year she died. He was again married to Miss Elizabeth Butler in 1855. To this union were born 10 children. He was again married to Mrs. Womelduff in 1876, again death entered his home. He married again Miss Linia Lamb, in 1894. He leaves to mourn his loss a wife and two children, Arminta Bradley of Kansas and Jack Crider of Oklahoma, and a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. He will be missed, but by none like these three companions.
Eight children have preceeded him to that home for which he had been looking for years. I can truthfully say Bro. Crider was one of the best men I ever knew. He was a devoted husband and father. His friends and companions never tired of administering to his wants. He was true blue Cumberland Presbyterian and loved his church. His health failed a few years ago. He suffered a great deal but bore it all so patiently.
In the death of Bro. Crider the church as lost an earnest christian worker and the home of a loving companion. The funeral was preached in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, at Piney Fork, in the presence of a large congregation.
At the close of the service the Masonic Fraternity took charge of the remains and conducted same to the cemetery, where the body was laid to rest, by their beautiful ritualistic service. We say to the wife and children, "Weep not as those who have no hope, father is not dead by sleepth". May the God of love bless and comfort your hearts, is my prayer. Rev. J. R. King
