Albert B. Needham Obituary

Died at his home, in Hardin County, Kentucky, Sunday 8th. He was a plain, humble citizen, of an honorable family, and never disgraced the name. He was a Christian, an earnest, and consistent one. He's an honorable life in a line.

He was an affectionate man in his family and in the world. A man with a heart in him. He had the eloquence of tears. He was hospitable. What a host have warmed at his hearth and been refreshed at his table. He was a humorous companionable man at home with the old or the young.

He was twice happily married, blessed with two of the noblest of women. He raised a large family thet are scattered here and there over the earth.

His duties were humble. He earned his bread in the sweat of his face, a life long laborer. He dignified toil. He not only directed the affairs of his farm, but he made a hand with the hands. The weariness of work was forgotten in his happy family circle, and at his consecrated family altar.

The dumb animals could understand him and found a friend in him. He never forgot them, and his last act was to go out to the barn on Sunday morning to turn out the stock, and died there in a good old age while attending to this humble duty.

He adorned the humble walks of life, and if ever a man deserved this line from the heart, this was the man. I feel death has robbed me of another earthly prop, but he is drawing now at the other end of the line.

The last time I preached in Hardin, he embraced and wept on my neck. How often he has done so. The next time will be in heaven. I lay these lines at his bier, an honest offering as a soul ever brought. May the peace that blessed him, bless all he loved and prayed for.
