Arnold French Chambliss
The Tate County Record, June 22, 1883
On the 27th of April, 1883, Arnold French, Infant son of MR. & MRS. W. R. CHAMBLISS. It lived only to bud and was called home to the Paradise of God, to bloom and become a sweet angle of mercy to descend on the ladder that Christ made to span the great gulf between earth and heaven; to hover around the hearts of its parents to draw them and others closer to their duty and to God, at the last hour of their sojourn here. They may say as did Christ "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
Mary Roxanna Chambliss
Tate County Record, August 1, 1884.

The deceased was born in Desoto now Tate County, Mississippi on the 25th of February 1855. Her maiden name was DEAN. She was baptised into fellowship of the Baptist Church in early life. Was married to Wm R. CHAMBLISS on the 11th day of September 1872, since which time she has lived as a most devoted Christian wife. She leaves behind her husband to mourn her loss and three sweet little children to ever be without the fond affections that is ever bestowed by such a loving mother. She bore her sickness with Christian fortitude, and frequently, during her sickness, gave evidence of her abiding faith in her Redeemer.

The Tate County, MS Record January 28, 1881
Mattie Chambliss the eldest child of W R and M R Chambliss after a few days suffering, died of croup, on the morning of January 19th, 1881. At the time of her death she was visiting her Grandmother, Mrs. Dean, near Hickory Grove, where she was born, February 25th, 1875. Being gentle, affectionate and obedient, she was the pride of her fond father, and a sweet comfort to her devoted mother, while her kind and amiable disposition won for her the admiration and affections of all who knew her. With sorrowing hearts and tearful eyes we bid her farewell hoping to meet her in that "Sweet By And By," of which she loved so much to sing.
