In Memory of W. M. Thompson
In the passing away of your beloved friend and neighbor, W. M. Thompson, there has been one more link in the chain of Cedar Rock Community broken. As a citizen he was looked upon as a model, and while he took no stand in politics, he could always be found giving good advice on the right side of every question pertaining to his church, his business, and his country. He made no claims to a high education, attended no college but he served his people with a true love and faithful devotion. In his mercantile life he had many friends of both white and black. he had a smile for every one of his customers he came in contact with. His friends and customers today bow in humble submission to Almighty God and his wife and children.
If we could we would not call him back for we re sure he is at the right hand of God making intercession for us. He was always at his post of duty in his church and in the development of his country. May God bless his wife and children in their bereavement.
Oh sing to me of heaven
When I am called to die;
Sing songs of holy ecstasy
To waft my should on high.
A friend.

She was born and reared in Jackson and attended the Jackson public schools and was popular with a wide circle of friends in Butts and adjoining counties. she was 26 years of age and was a member of the Baptist Church.

Attachment 3

Died of typhoid fever on the second day of May 1862, John Pittman Kimbell.

The subject of this notice was born in Oglethorpe County March 28, 1940, where he spent a portion of his infancy. His father soon moved to Butts county where he was principally brought up. Brother Kimball united with the Baptist church at Philippi, Henry county, September 1859, and lived a Baptist until his death.
He enlisted in the Confederate army about the first of October, 1861 and during his short sojourn with the army he exhibited a Christian sprit towards his fellow soldiers, for he was almost constantly engaged in nursing the sick of his company, until in January he was seized with disease. Having recovered from this attack, he wrote to his father that it was a sweet thought to him that he had a father at home who remembered him at a rich throne of Grace; that he thanked God he Served a God who would succor His people when left alone without kindred to cheer them; that he had found the Holy Spirit comforting to his drooping sprit. He further remarked that he was, and always expected to be, glad that he tried to serve God when he was young.
Having recovered from his first attack, he resumed his office of Kindness to his fellow soldiers until April, when he was prostrated with typhoid fever and was sent to his father (Elder John T. Kimball) in Butts county. The disease was so deeply seated that when he arrived home his mind was wandering. However, a few days before his death, he remarked to his father that the greatest thing was happiness--that eternal happiness above.
In the death of our brother, the Church has sustained a loss of one of its most promising lights; the Army a worthy soldier; his parents, a dutiful son, the vicinity in which he lived, a beloved neighbor. But we feel confident that he is gone to that rest which awaiteth the people of God--Therefore, we use the exhortation of our Saviour, "Weep not for me, but weep for yourselves and your children". Signed WJS

Mrs. Mary P. Kimbell, nee Lumpkin, wife of Rev. John T. Kimbell the subject of this notice was born in Oglethorpe County GA in March 1810 and died in Butts County January 26th 1888. She had nearly lived 78 years. In the early life she obtained a hop in the Savior and was baptized in the year 1826 by Jack Lumpkin. On March 27th 1834 she was married to J. T. Kimbell; soon afterwards they removed from Oglethorpe county to Butts where they lived until her death.
Soon after settling in Butts, Mrs. Kimbell entered the work of the ministry. While it is meet to honor and praise men who tor a long life have honored the sacred calling, their wives should not be forgotten. Much of their success depends upon the wife. In this calling she is indeed, an helpmate. As a preachers wife she met the full measure of duty, and now that she is laid away in the silent grave it may truthfully be said of her that Jesus said of Mary when she had poured the ointment on His head:; "She hath done what she could".
When the final day shall come then it will be known what such a life has been worth. In butts county and to humanity generally.
About 1 year ago she had a fall from which she never recovered sufficiently to be able to walk. On the night of her death she appeared as well as for sometime past, and was making arrangements to attend worship at County line church on the following Sunday. After retiring, difficulty of breathing was discovered. She suffered about one hour, and passed away with the expression "Bless the Lord".
Her funeral was preached at the county Line church Friday afternoon by W. G. McMichael and she was carried to the grave surrounded by a large concourse of relatives and friends who were ready to bear testimony to the piety and worth of this aged and devoted disciple of the Lord. R. M. Hooton Jackson GA Jan 30 1888.
