Monroe Watchman Obituary:

Henry Watts Arnot died at his home on June 24, 1898 in the 76th year of
his age. He was soundly converted to God at a Camp meeting held at
Centreville, now Greenville, about 60 years ago, and united with the Methodist
Church, and ever after lived a consistent and faithful member of that communion.
For many years he was the class leader of the society at Mt Hedding
Methodist Church, South. He was the class leader of the writer from the time he
united with the Church until he entered the ministry. He belonged to a pious
family originally from Scotland and was closely related to the Rev. Wm
Arnot, a noted divine of Scotland. He adorned his profession by a long life
devoted to the cause of God which he espoused in early life. He rests from toil
and affliction in the Paradise of God and his body awaits the resurrection
of the just at the second coming of the Lord Christ. He is not dead but
sleepeth.
He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn his absence: Two went on
before and they have doubtless met each other already there. Cheer up
sorrowing ones, and be faithful unto death. A great company is assembling there to
greet you at your coming.
A C McNeer
Whereas, it pleased Jehovah in His wise providence, to take from us on
Friday evening, June 24, 1898, our aged and beloved brother in Christ, Henry W
Arnot, in the 76th year of his age, therefore be it Resolved by the Mount
Heading M. E. Church, South Sunday School concurring
1st, That we recognize in our deceased brother a true and consistent
Christian, a kind father, a useful and worthy citizen and a good neighbor.
2nd, That by his death our church has been deprived of one of its most
useful members, as he was constant in his attendance at worship, faithful for
many years as our class leader, ever ready to bear a heavy share of the
church's financial burdens, never faulting in emergencies, but ever ready to
cheerfully perform any Christian duty. We miss him from his pew. He is missed
from the family altar, and he is missed as a kind neighbor.
3rd, We, as a church and Sunday school, mourn his loss, but with the glad
hope that we will again see him in a glorious Resurrection,
4th, That we submissively bow to the will of God who called him and who
doeth all things well.
5th, That we extend to the bereaved widow and children our Christian
sympathy with the assurance that their loss is his eternal gain.
6th, That these resolutions be sent to the Monroe Watchman for publication
and a copy sent to the family.
