Wife of John A. Wilson. Laura Buffaloe Obituary

Editor Times: It has been our
happy privilege to visit Mrs. Jennie
Wilson, wife of John A. Wilson,
of Carroll County, daughter of
William Buffaloe, of Kosciusko, on
her death bed. She made a profess-
sion of religion some two or three
months ago. We visited her at
various times since her profession
and have found her patiently bear-
ing her afflictions with Christian
fortitude, although her afflictions
were very great and sore; often her
soul being so much filled with the
love of God that she was happily
rejoicing in the Lord. But a few
days before she died we were called
to visit her when we found her
perfectly resigned. She has been
all through her afflictions, rejoicing
as it were, in the very jaws of death,
with her countenance all aglow
with the love of God plainly to be
seen making manifest the glorious
truths of the reality of the religion
of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Thank God for such a religion as this,
that will give us such a foretaste of
the heavenly joys, while our poor
bodies are racked with pains; and
we can lean on the strong arm of
Jesus and he will make us rejoice
even at death’s… friends of sister
Wilson “weep not then as those
that have no hope; she can not
come back to you but you can go
to her.”
W. A. Stafford
