One of the most touching of these vents is the death of Mrs. F. H. Hoff, who was lung a citizen of this portion of our county, and who, while here and also in her last abode on earth, won the affection of all with whom she became acquainted. We have confidence that the kind, beneficent favor of our Heavenly Father has been with her, and that she has been borne upward on the wings of His sustaining providence.
Mrs. Gallegly has been for a long time confined to her bed by a lingering and painful illness through which she has not yet passed in safety. We learn this morning that she is getting better.
The following sketch in sacred to the memory or sister M. A. J. Jenkins, wife of brother Jas. A. Jenkins, who departed this life on the morning of January 2nd, 1892, at 1:20 o'clock.
For ninety days she was confined to her room, and though her sufferings were intense she bore them with the greatest Christian fortitude without murmuring, and often remarked during her affliction that she would try to bear it with patience to the end. Sister Jenkins was born in Amite county, Miss., July 3rd, 1830; married to Jas. A. Jenkins June 3rd, 1845--Col. John G. Robinson, M. B. P., officiating. She bore eleven children seven sons and four daughters--six of whom (three sons and three daughters) survive her. All of her children were present at her funeral, except Silas H., who arrived a few hours after her interment, owing to delay in telegrams, which was a source of great grief to him and the family. Sister Jenkins was baptized into the fellowship of the Zion Hill Baptist church by Elder Z. Reeves, in 1849. Thus through the cares, toils and perplexities of forty-three years she walked and communed with God, bearing the cross of her Savior meekly and successfully, and laying it down triumphantly, to go home to wear the crown of righteousness which the righteous Judge shall give those who love his appearing. At the time of her death sister Jenkins was a member of the New Zion church, in whose interest she had labored zealously for a number of years, and who shall now miss her pious examples and labors of love.
