CAVNESS, Jasper - Died December 1, 1910 at the home of his brother, Elmer Garrett in Springdale, Ark., Jasper Cavness, age fifty years nine months and twenty-six days. Deceased was born in Benton county, Ark. February 5, 1860. From his youth he manifested a great desire for a good education and by personal energy and effort he obtained through the high schools and academies of the county a liberal education. He received the highest grade certificates from county examiners and taught in the public schools of Arkansas and Oklahoma for thirty years, giving general satisfaction to his students and patrons. February 1884 he was married to Miss Martha Woods. To them were born three children, two of whom died in infancy. Mrs. V.S. Williams, the only living daughter, upon whom he doted so lovingly, was with him in his last illness, who, together with all the dear loved ones, did all that human help could do to support and comfort him in his sufferings until the end came. Some years ago he professed faith in Christ as his Savior, but, neglecting the means of grace essential to spiritual growth and development, he bacame cold and careless - had lost the "joy of salvation." September 1909 he sought and obtained this joy, united with the Presbyterian Church at Lincoln, Ark. and entered upon the faithful discharge of christian duties and was happy in his christian life and work until his triumphant death. The funeral service, held at Woods' church, notwithstanding the inclement weather, was attended by a great company of his kindred, friends and old neighbors, thus extending sympathy and condolence to the sorrowing. The remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground on the farm of J.N. Woods, where so many of the kindred and loved ones are "sleeping in Jesus." May the Holy Spirit comfort the disconsolate and broken hearted. P. Carnahan.
