Dorcas Hinton was born in Knox County, Tennessee, December 23rd, 1824. Died at her home near Carpenter's Campground, Blount County, March 28, 1890, being aged sixty-six years, three months, four days.

She was united in marriage with S.C. Hinton, April 4th, 1844, in Knox County. A large family was the result of this union of which eight children are living. At the age of seventeen she made a profession of religion, and joined the Baptist church of Stock Creek, Knox County.

In 1852 she and her husband moved to Blount County. She then transferred her membership to the Baptist church at Six Mile of which she lived a faithful member until the new Baptist church was built at Laurel Bank; she again transferred her membership to that church as it was nearer her home and more convenient to attend, and lived an earnest and devoted Chrisian until her death.

Her husband succeeded her a few years since to the land beyond. She was kind, tender-hearted and hospitable to all; was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and left many relatives and warm friends to mourn her loss. She was very anxious to be restored to health, but when convinced that it was not in accordance with the Divine will for her to recover she was perfectly resigned.

While her departure is a sad affliction to near and dear, it has doubtless been to her but a passport through the pearley gate that opens to the life and bliss which lies beyond this dark vale of sin and sorrow. Therefore let us not sorrow concerning her which is asleep, even as others which have no hope.
