Oil, yes, their liearts have been bereaved.
Lord give them strength to do thy will:
Dear S.vviour, be their Sun and .sliield.
Sorrowing patents, soon, soon you’ll go,
To yonr dear babe yon loved below.
Oh, Annie now needs not your tear.s,
Nor mother’s love, nor papa’s c.ares :
Eternal love for her prepaies.

1875, De.accn N. B. Tyson.
Brother Ty.son was born June 2Cth, i812,
in the State of Tenne.s.see, and County of
Montgomery. He joined the Primitive Bap
tist Church at Blooming Grove (in the County
and State of hia nativity) in 1829, and was
baptized by Elder .Josiah Horne. He lived
in the fellow.ship of said Chnreh until 1837,
when he moved to Henry County, and joined
Bam Fork Church, where he lived till 1848,
when he moved to Arkansa.s, Ouachita Coun
ty. Here he joined Bethesda Church, where
he lived ’till 1865 when he emigrated to Texas,
M'lam County, and joined New Providenee
Church, of which be died a member.
Brother Ty.son was made Deacon by Be
thesda Church in Arkansas in 1860. He
vras long the subject ©f this distressing dlsea,se
—■Asthma, and of which he suffered much,
but with great patience, Ilis aiaiable wlf©,
to whom he was truly devoted, died April
20th, which was, as may be .seen, hut a .short
time before his death. After her death he
.seemed not only willing but anxious to de
part. It seemed to he according to his de.sire,
for at the time of her burial he was taken
with the disease of which .she died—conges
tion of the Liver, of which he died in about
two week.s, and was buried by her side.
The writer visited him during his illness
and heard him expre.ss many of his thoughts
and much of his feeling ou the su’oject of his
life and death. A.fter hearing him speak of
hirs iff family life, a.id e.speci-
enler, or sorrow ever come.
Hesolved, That we ext^'nd the sym
pathies of the members of this Church to the
afllicted relatives of the deceased, kau htah a
copy of tiie.se resolutions be sent them, and
that the same be pubh. .ied in Zion’s La.xd-
aiarks. and also a blank page be in.s:crihed
and dedicated to our honored brctlicr in our

.solemn weight—an indescriKible
feeling'. I know that if I am what I profess
to be, it is not of me—it is all of grace. I
feel that if I am not prepared to die I never
will be. If I am changed I did not change
myself; the Almighty did it, and if he did it
it was done right.” Concerning his personal
character and life, ho remarked: “I know
that I have never done anything to merit
favor, yet I have ever tried to be a law-abid
ing man. I have been a member of the
Church ever since I was seventeen years old,
and have never been called to account for
anything I have said or done. If I have dis
honored the cause I do not know it. .Some
people .say the Old Baptists believe what is to
be will be a.ny now. They are ns far from
being an any how people as any in the
world,” &c. Here I remarked to brother
Ty.son that 1 felt to be under many obliga-
tios to him for his kindae.ss to me, to which
he replied : “ 1 havm’dbhe nothing but what
I felt that I ought to do. I ask no thanks
But I want yon, my dear brother, to watch
over my children when I am gone. Some of
them would, I think, join the Chnreh but for
certain hindrances. I want you to visit
them and talk with them. There are no ties
to hold me hero now, except my children,
but I must tear loose from them too.”

Sister Maey Tyson, consort of brother N.

joined the Primitive Baptist Church about
