Helena, Arkansas (Deceased)
The late James Hamilton was born January 16, 1882, at Greenville, Mississippi. He was baptized into Christ for the remission of sins by T. P. Porter, in 1902. He married Miss Rosetta Milt9n of Cohoma County, Mississippi, and two children were born to them. Sister Hamilton stood four square with him in the faith of the gospel. She answers well the description for wives given by the apostle Paul in the New Testament: She is grave, not a slanderer, sober, faithful in all things. Brother Hamilton was one of the pioneer preachers, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom and was of a good report within and without. He made a specialty of carrying the gospel to destitute places, often at the hazard of his own life. He succeeded in establishing congregations that reflect credit to the Brotherhood. Many persons who sat under the sound of his voice and heard the word of the Lord are live wires in the Church today, wherever they are. He established the congregations at Belen and Kosciusko, Mississippi, and in Helena, Arkansas. He lived a beautiful life and fell asleep in Jesus, October 17, 1941. "Blessed are they that dieth in the Lord, for they do rest from their labor and their works do follow them." --Gospel preacher listed in "Our Ministers and Song Leaders of the Church of Christ," by Annie C. Tuggle, 1945.
