LILLARD, Robert Whitley  

July 31, 1847 - May 22 1905 

Robert Whitley Lillard departed this life May 22, 1905. He was born near Stanford, July 31 1847. His mother was Miss Anne Whitley, daughter of Wm. Whitley, a pioneer and well-known Indian fighter.
His father was a Baptist minister and editor of the Western Recorder. 

Mr. Lillard began his education at Georgetown, KY., but graduated from Washington and Lee University, Lexington, VA., in 1871. After this he spent some time traveling in Europe staying for the
most part in Germany pursuing his studies.

 Shortly after his return, he married Miss Susie Craig, daughter of Dr. John Craig, the distinguished surgeon. To them two children were given, Miss Sadie and Ashley Lillard. Less than a year ago he
married Miss Fanny Gray, of Winchester, Tenn. Mr. Lillard's characteristics were strongly marked. Affable, he won many friends, candid, affectionate, true, he retained them. A Christian from early boyhood,
he grew stronger in the faith as the years passed and more consecrated in his walk and conversation. "Laying aside every weight he ran with patience the race set before him, looking unto Jesus, the author and
preceptor of faith." He has won the victor's crown. In his last moments he was given a vision of the beautiful lights of the eternal city, his heavenly home and the strength to declare it to those about him. He
lives in the hearts that loved him. I cannot say and I will not say that he is dead. He is just away. A Friend.
