Marcus Warren Carter was born in the state of Ohio, Jan. 26, 1883, and departed this life May 22, 1913, aged thirty years., three months and twenty-six days. He was married March 12, 1902, to Miss Lulu B. Tomlinson (at Dickens, Iowa). To this union were born four children; Maude, born June 5, 1903, Archie, born Aug. 7, 1905, Mabel, born July 24, 1908, and a daughter (Merle) who died in infancy.
Brother Carter was converted Jan. 1906 and sanctified during the spring of 1909. He united with the Methodist Episcopal church soon after his conversion. In 1911 he transferred his membership the Free Methodist church of which church he was a member at his decease. The call to the gospel ministry came to brother Carter soon after his conversion, and he at once began to prepare himself for that field of labor beginning to exercise his gifts in actual ministry during the summer of 1912, being in full sympathy and laboring largely in association with the Iowa Holiness Work. In his preparation brother Carter spent some time at C.H.U. and two years in the school at Spencer, Iowa, moving to University Park, Iowa, in the fall of 1912 to continue his preparation from which place he departed this life, leaving a wife, three children, a father and mother, five brothers and two sisters and many friends to mourn his departure. But their loss is his gain, for "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints".
The funeral was conducted from the University Chapel, Sunday, May 25, 1913, at 2:30 p.m., the writer preaching the sermon from 11 Tim. 4: 7,8. Dr. McLaughlin and others assisted in the service. His remains were laid to rest in the University Park Cemetery.
