Our precious boy has passed away, W. T. Blacklock; living in the Bear Creek neighborhood where he had resided for several years.  He was married to Lizza Allen on the 29th day of January, 1896.  Four children were born to them.

For five or six years he had been afflicted with rheumatism so that he suffered great pain but bore his suffering with patience.  On Thursday evening about 9 o'clock, May 27th, at his home, he fell asleep in Jesus.  He leaves a wife, four children, father, mother, three brothers, three sisters, and many relatives and friends to mourn his death. 

He was a loving husband and father, and loved his family and provided for them well.  He was 35 years and some months old.

We are assured that being parted from us he has joined loved ones with Jesus in that home that knows no sorrow.  May we so live that when we are called to go we will be prepared to meet him where we will never part any more.  He had not joined any church on this earth but joined the church of Christ no doubt a long time back.  When but a small boy he said he loved Jesus and long since he said he was a Christian.  Not long before he left us he gave us evidence of his hope in Christ.

He was a good and obedient child and was always ready to help the sick and afflicted and was a law abiding citizen.  May the peach of God rest upon the bereaved ones left behind. 

He was laid to rest in the Bear Creek cemetery.  Relatives, do ask the prayers of all Christians to pray for the salvation of these dear children.

Father and Mother.
