*Obituary
Fayetteville Democrat
Friday, October 19, 1888

Our old citizens are passing away one by one, and are being gathered into that land whither their fathers have gone before them. During the present year many of these full of years and crowned with the glory of a well spent life, have crossed the last flood and entered upon their reward. Among these I mention Charles J. Severs, a man long familiar to, and greatly revered by a very wide circle of friends, and by a large acquaintance, in this county, during a citizenship of fifty–five years. Mr. Severs, or "Uncle Charley," as he was familiarly called, was born near Knoxville, Tenn., November 16, 1811; came to Arkansas in 1833; was married to Mrs. Basima Ballard in 1834, and died at his residence, in this county, September 4, 1888. His wife died at Eureka Springs, September 13, 1881, having preceeded him to the better land by nearly seven years. He professed religion in his youth and lived an honored and reputable member of the J.E. Church and of the M.E. Church South for a period of sixty years. His character as a man, as a citizen and as a Christian gave him the confidence and esteem of all who knew him, and he left the world in bright hope of a blessed inheritance. He was a man of strong convictions; of generous impulses; frank and demonstrative in his manners; upright and honorable in his dealings and intercourse with men, and firm in his attachment to the right. Our old friend and brother, is greatly missed and greatly deplored, in the community in which he lived. His was the first death that ever occurred at his residence,—a period of fifty years. He leaves behind him five children, one–Mrs. Oates–having passed on before him many years ago. He served his day and generation well; he lived to purpose, died in the faith, and now rests from his labors. Peace to his ashes. H.M.W. October 12, 1888. Sentinel please copy.
