A Mother in Israel Passes Quietly Away
Editor Times: On the night of the 11th of June, Mrs. Jennie Armour, quietly breathed her life away at the home of her son in-law, Mr. H.J. Lindsey. She was formerly Miss Jennie Faires and was born in South Carolina, Oct. 23, 1809, and emigrated with her father’s family to this country in 1816 and settled on Big Cypress, near where Wesley’s Chapel now stands. On August 30th 1831, she married Wm. Faires and moved to Tipton county, Tenn., where she lived with her husband til his death, which occurred on August 6, 1839. She then returned to Lauderdale with the responsibility of rearing three little children, and remained in her widowhood until she was married to Wm. B. Amour, Feb 13, 1848 by whom she raised two daughters and lived a pleasant life until Oct 11, 1881, when he died and again she was left a widow; after which she went to stay with her daughters, Mrs. Henry J. Lindsey and Mrs. Harrison M. Wallace, dying at the home of former as stated above. In young womanhood she professed faith in Christ and joined the M.E. Church South, of which she lived a consistent member during the remaining years of a long and useful life. The writer knew her from his infancy up to the time of her death and never saw her perform an action or heard her utter a sentence that was unbecoming in a wife, a mother, a neighbor or a Christian, which can be truthfully said of very few mortal beings. It was a custom with her to lecture her neighbor’s children as well as her own to be upright, honest and truthful, and would invariably point them to the Savior. According to the law of nature the last few years of her life she was from extreme old age in very feeble heath. She was in her 86th year, but seemed to suffer but little and complain but little. Four children yet survive her. Two of whom are in Texas, Andrew J. Faires and Mrs. J.A. Bryant. She died as she had lived, in peace with God and all mankind. A long procession of friends and relatives followed her remains to their final resting place at Wesley’s Chapel. The Rev. Mr. Chappell performed the burial service. May the bereaved and the sympathizing ones meet her in that happy home above the starry skies.
---- John L. Austin, Threet, Ala., June 18, 1895
