Note: 1804. Professed religion and joined the Baptist church in 1825. SisterMcCuistion was the oldest member of the oldest church in Texas. Hermembership has been continuously with the old North Church for overforty years. When the split took place between the Missionary andanti-Missionary Baptists in 1830, she refused to take sides in thecontroversy amd remained with the original church and really held ittogether. She was the mother of eight children, only four of whomsurvive her. During all those years of her pilgrimage, she was mosttender and devoted mother, an affectionate and faithful wife, aconsistent and consecrated Christian. Her husband had a misfortune afew weeks ago to be accidentally hurt, and for a time his life was injeopardy. During his period of suffering, her care of him was astouchingly tender as it might have been a century ago. She lingeredabout two weeks on the banks of the river of death, and then passedover to her home in heaven. She was fully conscious of herapproaching death and spoke of it calmly and hopefully unto the end.She called around her bedside her family and friends and bade each atouching farewell, gave careful instructions and faithful admonitions,and then in the fulness of time, ripe with age and rich in experience,she fell asleep in Jesus.
The whole community waited at her bedside and followed her belovedremains to the tomb. She had looked back on a life well spent, with aconscience void of offense toward God and man, and looked forward tothe land of the glorified with sweet and hopeful anticipations.
Note: Mary Ann McCuistion was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee, July 5
