Mount Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church Record:

J. H. Brand received by Letter on July 31, 1908.
"The LaFayette Sun"- November 11, 1908:

In Memoriam.

In memory of James H. Brand, who was born July 1, 1868, and departed this life October 27th, 1908.
He was a devoted husband and son. He leaves a mother, father, wife and 8 children, four sisters, two brothers and many other relatives and friends to mourn his death.
His death was due to Bright's Disease and many other incurable diseases.
He was carried to Mount Pisgah Church and after singing his favorite song, "The Bower of Prayer" (Page 100 in The Sacred Harp) and a prayer by S. P. Smith, his remains were laid to rest in Mount Pisgah Cemetery to await the resurrection morn.
Weep not for him, dear wife and children, for now he is gone. The same hand that led him has kindly assisted him home.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in your home
Which never can be filled.

God in His wisdom has recalled
The boon His love has given;
And though the body slumbers here,
His soul is safe in Heaven.

We loved him, yes we loved him,
But Jesus loved him more;
And He has safely took him
To that bright and shining shore.

- Written by his loving niece, Miss Eva Mobley, Wise, Ala.
