Edward Louis Jackson Clippings

See his family record.

     Obituary.--E. Louis Jackson was born May 3rd, 1863, and died Jan. 28th, 1892, at his home near Piedmont, W. Va. of consumption. During the last few years he was a great sufferer, and when the Master's call to depart came, it was gladly obeyed. How sad to die when just in the bloom of manhood, but what a consolation to the bereaved relatives and friends to know he is with the Saviour, where no sorrow, no change or decay can over come. He bid his friends good bye, asking them not to grieve, but to meet him in heaven. The funeral services were held at the residence of his aunt, Mrs. S. Barr, near Winchester, and were conducted by Revs. Miller and Strother. The pall-bearers were selected by the deceased. A large number of friends followed his remains to their final resting place in Mt. Hebron.
Gone are the hopes once cherished,
  Faded the flowers of yore;
He that I loved has perished,
  Passed to the other shore.
Forget him, O! when life shall cease
  To thrill this heart of mine,
And not till then will I forget
  One look or tone of him.
Forget him, 'tis a bitter word,
  I would it were unsaid;
Forgetfulness is not of life,
But with the silent dead.
