In Memoriam

Dies, at her home near Rock Spring in Rutherford county, Tenn., June 15 th 1882, Mrs. M.M. Brittain, at the age of 80 years 4 months. She was born Feb. 13th. 1802 ( Nolensville, Williamson Co., Tenn) Married to John Brittain July 9 ( ) 1818, became a disciple of Christ, and was baptized June 1 st, 1832, by Peyton Smith, while he was preaching with the disciples. She was the cousin of elder Peyton Smith.

She gave birth to 11 childeren, 8 of whom lived to maturity; all of these became members of the Chirch of Christ, Six survive her and were present at preaching at Rock Spring the day following her burial.

Sister, Brittain was a woman of large frame, good constitution, commanding personal appearance, fine common sense and great decision and force of Character; but with these, modest and retiring in her manners and thoroughly womanly in all her instincts and tastes.

She was firm and decided in her religious belief and practice as in all the affairs of life. Religion with her was not an excitement or an emotion, but it was an earnest life-work, growing out of a fixed faith. For fifty years she was an earnest and consistent member of the church of Christ at Rock Spring. Durning this time, admid troubled and discouragements in and out of the church, her faith never faltered, her quiet zeal never grew cold. She was constant in her services at church. So long as she lived, she regularly paid for a copy of the Gospel Advocate to be sent to each of her childeren. Her influence was felt for good, in her family, in the church, in the community. She was a prudent manager of her household affairs, an economical but bountiful provider, and was a true helper to her husband, and durind her widowhood, a wise counsllor and helper to her childeren.

The esteem in which she was held was manifested by the large concourse of neighbors and friends that attended her burial. Her childeren and friends in her death while mourning the loss of such a mother and friend, have the sweet assurance and consolation that a long life of steadfast service to God gives. " Though a sinner do evil one hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him. But it shall not be well with the wicked." D. L.

Notes for JAMES SMITH ( SHERWOOD? ) BRITTAIN:

Brittain

Bro. J. S. Brittain was born September 16, 1824. His father and mother lived near old Rock Springs chuech, Rutherford county, Tenn, and were both earnest members of that church. I did not know his father very well, he having died years ago. His mother was an earnest and devoted Chriatain and by example and precept tried to bring her childeren up in the service of the Lord. She raised a large family of childeren, and all of whom became Christians. James under this training becamb a member of the church in his youth and always took an interest in the church and its work and success. He was especially fond of attending preaching, sometimes, no doubt, he neglected the worship nearer home that needed his presence, in his love for attending preaching. But he was through life zealous and faithful in his profession of the Christian life. He was married to Mary A. Jenkins, June 2nd, 1864, with whom he lived happily until his death, Nov. 20, 1889. She was left with three childeren to tread the pathway of life. Bro. Brittain was an honest, upright man, and by his walk commanded the respect of all who knew him. He was faithful and true to his confidence in God, and died with the assurance that " an entrance, into the everlasting kingdom of our Loed and Savior Jesus Christ." David Lipcomb

The time is swiftly rolling on,

When with you I hope to meet,

And other Christians that have gone,

To walk the golden streets.

 

Notes for MARY ANN JENKINS:

Mary Jenkins Brittain.

By F.B. Srygley.

Sister Mary Brittain, formerly Mary Jenkins, died at her home near Nolensville, Tenn., on May 19, 1918. She was born on November 22, 1838, and hence, lacked only a few months being eighty years old. She obeyed the gospel at Rock Springs, in Rutherford County, Tenn the third Sunday in September, 1858. She was a member of the church nearly sixty years, and was faithful to it till her death. For about forty-five years of that time she was present at the meetings of the church. The last fifteen years of her life she was an invalid and therefore, could not attend all the meetings of the church, but she never forgot to give her means to support the gospel. She was a faittttthful wife;a tender loving mother; a good neighbor, and a true christian. Couls much more be said in commendation of any woman? She reared two sons and one daughter and taught them to be christians, and, therefore, to be useful men and women. Her husband and her only daughter preceded her several years to the glory worls; and while this saddened her life, it sweetened it and fit it for service. Her faith grew stronger in the eternal worl as the ties were broken in this world. Her sons and grandchilderen are left with the memories and the heritage of a faithful life to encourage them onward and upward to a brighter day. It will be a happy meeting when father and mother daughter, and sons all meet together in the glory world. Cherish the memory of mother and grandmother, imitate her example of faithfulness, and follow her as she followed Christ; and some sweet day there will be a happy reunion of family " over there."

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON KIDD:

Good Citizen before 1879

Nolensville, Jan. 28.- Since our last, the white-winged messenger of death has called one of our most highly esteemed citizens from the walks of men to the realities of the unknown beyond. Last Fridayat 1 a.m., George Washington Kidd passed away, just one week after the death of his little son, Howard. The once happy home is shrouded in double mourning. Mr Kidd was a man of many noble traits of character. Honored and beloved by all who knew him, his loss to the community can not be estimated. His christianity and honesty were never questioned; he was a member of the Christian Church. He leaves a wife, five little childeren, an aged mother, a brother and a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. Rev. Armstrong conducted the funeral service, at the home, Saturday at 11 a.m., in the presence of a large number of admiring friends. Interment took place at the kidd cemetery.

Notes for SARAH ANN NEAL:

Thus another has paid the debt we all owe. Mrs. Sarah A. Brittain ( nee Neal) was born in Rutherford County Tennessee, December 20, 1833, and died near Morganton, Van Buren County, Arkansas, at 7:30 O'clock on the evening of March 1, 1895. Was married to P.H. Brittain March 14, 1854. Came to Arkansas with her husband in 1859 and returned to Tennessee in 1870 on account of her health. Again came to Arkansas in 1885 where she has since lived. She professed faith in Christ in 1854 and joined the Christain Church and has since lived a sonsistent and pious Christian. She was mother of nine childeren six of whom still live.

"Aunt Sarah," as she was familiarly called, was every one's friend. Her life was one stainless and spotless. For the last few years she has been almost an invalid; she having that dreaded disease, catarrh of the lungs. For the last few weeks she was almost helpless. Her numerous friends showing their appreciation and love, by visiting her and administering to her wants. Before she died she expressed herself as perfectly willing and fully prepared to die, and as she approached the valley of death every mist cleared away, her face seemed to brighten, and she quietly fell asleep in death.

She leaves an aged husband, one daughter, five sones, many relatives and a host of friends to mourn her loss. Rev Watson preached her funeral to a large concourse of people. Placing explicit faith in him who never promises amiss, expect to meet her " some sweet day" where partings never come. Her husband has indeed lost a true and devoted wife, her childeren a loving mother, the community one of its best and the church one of its most devoted members. Sorrowing ones prepared to meet this one who is on the other shore beckoning you on to the place where all is joy, peace and happiness. One Who Know Her.

Notes for COLUMBUS LAFAYETTE BRITTAIN:

Brother C. L. Brittain was born, on July 12, 1834, in Rutherford County Tennessee near Rock Spring, where, on September 7, 1903, surrounded by his devoted family, he peacefully fell asleep in Jesus. Funeral sevices over the remains were conducted by Brethren F.B. Srygley and M.C. Kurfees at the church of Christ at Rock Spring. A large number of friends were present to pay their tribute of respect to the departed one, who was a true Christian, a kind neighbor, and an honorable citizen. Brother Brittain was baptized by Brother Joshua K. Speer in 1855, and was ever afterwards faithful to all his duties as a Christain. He always attended the services of the church when he was able to do so; he visited his neighbors when they were sick or in destress and administered to their necessities in a substantial way. His Home was noted for its hospitality. He was a man of firm convictions, of unquestionable integrity, of dauntless energy, of buisiness ability, and, above all, of strong and abiding faith in the Giver of life. He was married, in 1869, to Mary L. Brothers, who died in 1871. To this union a daughter was born. In 1873 he married to Fanny M. Batey, to whom a son and daughter were born. These childeren, with the wife, are left to mourn the loss of father and husband Let the bereaved ones sorrow not as those who have no hope. Remember the words of John which Brother Brittain so often quoted: " Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord fron henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them." He worked; he rests. M.C.R.

Notes for LUCY FRANCES LAURENCE:

Lucy Frances Laurance Brittain

Died of consumption at her home in Rutherford county, Tenn., on the 17th of October 1879, Mrs L.F. Brittain consort of P.S. Brittain, age 41 years. On October 11th, 1859, sister Frannie and brotherPeyton Brittain were married. In 1861 moved to Arkansas, where they remained 9 years; then returned to their old neighborhood and settled down near his mother's, where he now is living. For years sister Brittain had been afflicted, but not untill last spring, did disease assume such a serious character. She rallied, however, and partialy recovered from the first attack, but the second was too much for her shattered constitution and her spirit quietly yieled up the tenement of clay, to dwell, we trust in a habitation free from scickness, sorrow, pain or dissolution. Sister Brittain had for years been a disciple of Jesus, and earnestly labored for the cause she loved so well. She leaves a husband, 5 childeren, two boys and three girls, all memners od the church but one, to mourn her loss, also many other relatives and friends to fondly cherish the memory od the departed, and ever ready to drop a tear of sympathy, or kindly speak a word of encouragement and confort to the bereft ones, who still linger on the shores of time, till called like her to cross over into the beautiful and bright beyond where pleasures are forever more.
