WIGHT, Warren - Died, at his home five miles east of Bentonville, Uncle Warren Wight, after being confined to his bed for five long months, desiring all the time to pass away, being conscious to the last. He was born Aug. 28th, 1811, died April 27th, 1903, making his stay on earth 91 years and 8 months, less one day. He leaves one son and his son's wife and six grandchildren and a host of friends to mourn their loss. He had two sons and his wife who preceded him to the land beyond. J.H. Wight, the eldest, still survives him and is, with his family, living on the old home place and J.F. Wight, the 2nd son, died in Texas during the late war, and A.P. Wight died Jan. 23, 1893, and his wife died Dec. 2nd, 1896. Uncle Warren, as he was familiarly known, was born in Philadelphia, Penn. His parents left Penn. with him when he was three years of age, moving to Indiana where he lived with his parents till he was 21 years of age when he left his parents and came to Arkansas for his health where he has had good health until about five years ago when he was attacked with organic heart trouble and never has been well since. He first settled in Richland in Washington where he was married to Nancy Howry March 21st, 1838 and the same year moved to where Bentonville is and put in the first stock of groceries in the place. But in a short time he quit the grocery business and settled on the place where he resided till he was called away by death. He was a staunch Democrat all his life. He professed a hope in Jesus when 18 years of age but never united with any church but was of the primitive Baptist faith and expressed himself several times that he much regretted that he had failed to join the church before he became so feeble and advised his grandchildren to not put it off as he had done. He was laid to rest in the Little Flock cemetery, funeral services being conducted by Eld. Benj. Mahurin, assisted by Rev. P. Carnahan. Uncle Warren will be missed by all who knew him and especially by his son's family who spared no time or trouble to administer to his wants. He often wept, he said not because they were not kind to him, but because they were so good to him and he so helpless. G.I. Landers.
