Obit*
Mrs. Mary Spurlock was born in Henry County, Tennessee January 8,
1832. She was the daughter of Burris and Martha Estes. She was converted
in her thirteenth year, and first united with the Missionary Baptist Church
and remained a member of that church about three years. She then joined the
M.E. Church South, in which she lived a pious member until the day of her
death, which occurred September 17th, 1882 in Sharp County, Arkansas.

Sister Spurlock was married to David Spurlock, July 8th, 1847. She was
the mother of ten children, seven of whom are married, and nine of the ten
are members of the M.E. Church South, and I trust they are all on their way
to heaven. The youngest, little Benny, was a mourner at Shiloh, during the
great revival that has just closed. Our sister was confined to her bed over
seven weeks, did suffer much, but she bore her afflictions as none but a
Christian can. I visited her a number of times during her illness, and always
found her submissive to the will of God. The day before she died, I found her
happy. I conversed with her about her future prospects, and she said, 'all is
well." She praised God aloud and continued to praise Him until her strength
was gone. Thank God for the testimony of the dying saint. Sunday at 4 p.m. she fell asleep in Jesus. Monday we buried her at Shiloh. A large concourse of weeping friends and relatives attended the funeral, and after the burial services, we deposited her remains in the grave there to wait the resurrection.
Sleep on, Aunt Mary, and by and by Christ shall descend and call your sleeping dust to life again."
