At the age of 16 he became a Christian and ten years later he dedicated his life in and entire consecration to God and experienced the grace of entire sanctification, which grace he professed to enjoy throughout life. On October 13, 1921 he departed this life, dying in the triumph of a living faith. During his long illness he often witnessed to God's wonderful grace and declared his great desire to go and be forever with his Lord. He married December 28, 1865 to Miss Hannah A. Duran of the vicinity of Pleasant Grove. To this union were born five children, three of whom remain. Perlia, the eldest died September 1867, her life being for a few short months, while Allen, the youngest child died October 2, 1893, at the age of 16. To mourn his loss there remain three children, Frederick, Rhea and Mrs. Frank Bennett, also five grandchildren, together with the beloved wife, who was his companion for more than half a century and whose untiring devotion through all the years never failed. Funeral services were held at the late residence, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. J.D. Roach, one of the former pastors. Interment was in the Griggsville Cemetery.
