Subject: [ARIZARD] Miser obit - who is this?
Date: Mon, 16 Feb 2009 10:06:54 -0600
I'm transcribing (slowly) some old Stone Co newspaper. The following item
concerned an Izard Co resident so thought I'd just pass it along for any
interested researchers (I have no connection to the Miser family). I'm
curious who her parents were. I've done a tiny bit of searching to find out
who who they were but she was born and died in between the 1880 and 1900
census so can't locate her that way.
Can anyone connect her to the right family?? Glenda
"Died - at her home in Calico Rock, Dec 15, 1897, Miss Hattie Bell
Miser, aged 15 years, 11 months and 4 days. She leaves a father, mother,
one sister and one brother to mourn her loss. She was sick 20 days and bore
her suffering with patience. She was a bright and lovely girl and loved by
all who knew her and an affectionate daughter and sister.
Dust to dust, ashes to ashes, there to remain until the resurrection
morn. The dust returns to dust, the spirit to God who gave it.
She was buried in the grave yard where her grandmother and grandfather
and three little sisters were laid to rest.
The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. John Anderson at the
grave, attended by a large crowed (sic) of mourning friends.
We have lost a beloved friend but heaven has gained a bright star.
Hattie is far from us now, but thank God we can go to her. "Who so ever
will come let him come, and drink of the water of life freely," and may God
grant that her parents may be ready to meet her in that land where there is
no more parting. A Friend"
