Moore---My sister, Mrs Sarah Bethea Moore, was born June 22, 1833, and died at the home of her son in Latta, SC., on the morning of December 27, 1891. She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, at Dothan, in 1845, and was converted at Little Rock during the camp meeting of 1848. She was happily married to James Moore, of Marlborough County, SC., in 1855, who preceded her to the spirit world about thirty five years. She leaves an only son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. Her sickness was long (five years) and severe, and of a character that required a great deal of attention. But she was fondly loved, tenderly nursed, watched and cherished by her children. Her daughter-in-law could not have been more attentive to her own mother. Though her sickness was so protracted she was never heard to murmur or complain at the providence of God, but declared constantly with holy emphasis; "All things work together for good to them that love God." As long as she could speak she expressed a "blessed hope." And when she passed out too far to speak back to us, I said, "Sister, if Jesus is with you, now, indicate it by raising your hand." Slowly the wasted hand was raised and pointed heavenward. At her request the writer preached her funeral, and in the presence of a large concourse of relatives and friends we buried her in the cemetery at Dothan by the side of father and many others who were dear to us. May God bless the children and grandchildren, and may we all meet in heaven. S J Bethea
