OBITUARIES
  



Effie Estella Lisenby 

 Little Effie Estella Lisenby came as a heavenly sunbeam to the 
home of Mr. And Mrs. Wm. Lisenby Sept. 18th, 1907, to brighten their 
family circle for a few brief months. Sunday last the angels came and 
carried her spirit back to Jesus. She did not have length of days, nor 
heroic deeds to record, but her brief life played a part in influencing 
those who loved her to live for purity here and a heaven hereafter.

 The remains arrived here from Princeton, Ind., over the Southern on 
Monday afternoon and were taken to the home of Bob Yearwood on S. Sixth 
Street, from whence the funeral was conducted by Rev. W. A. Browder at 
10:30 a.m. Tuesday. She was buried at East Salem.     

Note: Effa Estella died of diphtheria.
