Union Soldier-Co. E, 34th Illinois Infantry

Eld. A. W. Austin, born Nov 13, 1842, died Aug 22, 1917, aged 74 years, 9 months and 9 days. He was united in marriage with Malinda Barnhizer, Oct 1, 1865. To this union were born five sons and five daughters, five of whom have gone before. Two sons and three daughters, with their mother remain. Bro. Austin was a devoted husband and father. He united with the church in 1881, and served in the deacon's office for a few years, after which he was called to the ministry. Bro. Austin spent one year in the Burr Oak church, Kans. Then, with his family, he moved to Belleville, Kans. At this point, five years of his active services were given. Here a comfortable house of worship was built. The missionary spirit burning in his heart, he again made a change of location, this time moving to Texas, to a place known as the Williams Creek congregation. Six years of his life were spent here. He did much preaching and visited the members scattered in the state. While in Texas he was ordained to the eldership. He served his District twice on Standing Committee, and was especially active in District Work. About the year 1893 he, with his family, moved to Oklahoma, locating on a farm near Cushing, in the Big Creek congregation, in which congregation he labored for the last twenty-four years. In his early years in this locality he was associated in service with Eld. Samuel Edgecomb, now of Fresno, Cal. To these two faithful servants of God the church here attributes much. Bro. Austin was a power in personal work. No sacrifice was too great for him to make for the good of the church, and for the comforting of the burdened, and helping men and women too the best in life. He was a very spiritual man as week as meek. He leaned very heavily upn his God, having conducted family worship in his home from a very early date. Services by the writer, assisted by Rev.Lindsey, of the M. E. Church. Text, Job 19:25. (N. S. Gripe, Ripley, Okla)
