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.
