Southern Christian Advocate, issue dated January 12, 1899 Vol 62 #30 page 10 column 1 from the Sandor Teszler Library of Wofford College:


May---daughter of E Bethea, died December 20, 1898, in her 11th year. Though young she had been so instructed as to realize Jesus as her Saviour. Her sweet spirit made her a favorite and the joy of the home. It was a custom as family prayers to have a short prayer for each one. This little one never failed. Her prayers were unusually clear for her years. Her brother, Arthur, seemed to be a favorite, and in every prayer, she mentioned him. It was so with peculiar emphasis at the last prayer service the night she was taken ill. After a short sleep the day she died, she said to her Ma, "I dreamed I died and went to heaven." In a few hours this was realized. The Lord bless the stricken home and may the loved ones meet again in heaven. J E B
