Jesse A. Shults Obituary

From Dr. James Perkins:
Obituary-Errata, page 716
DeSoto County, Miss. Oct. 28, 1849
Dear Brother Campbell: It becomes my painful duty to record the death of my loving and affectionate husband, Jesse Shults.  On the first day of June last, he fell asleep in Jesus, of a disease of the lungs. His affliction, though not very long, was revere, yet he bore it with Christian fortitude and resignation. He was young in the cause of the Redeemer, but zealous, and desirous to do all the good he could.  He made the Bible his study, and was also a reader of your Harbinger.  Just before he departed, he exhorted all present to prepare to meet him in Heaven, that he was going there, and believed that God would own and accept him, and for me not to grieve after him.  He requested that sweet song to be sung-
When languor and disease invade
This trembling house of clay,
'Tis sweet to look beyond my pains,
And long to fly away.
He has left me and two helpless little children to mourn his irreparable loss, the youngest one a promising little son, which he named Alexander Campbell, and said he was raising him for the Lord.
Margaret Shults.
