In Memory Roe Teague

On Friday, May 31, 1927, before midnight was nearing God sent the death angel down from the beautiful white throne and carried the sweet spirit of our precious father to that glorious city, where the walls are of jasper and the streets are gold; where streams of crystal are flowing and great wealth is unknown. It was so sad to give him up. The home is so lonely without him, and also his many friends loved him as a great man. But God's will be done. It makes no difference what it is.

It appears to us that life's choicest buds are taken. We know that he is safe in the arms of Jesus, and is free from all pain and care, but still it makes our hearts ache and throb to know that we will never hear his tender voice or see his kind dear face on this old earth any more.

He can not come back to us, but we can go to him, if we only live as he did and how sweet to know that we can see him again and live with him, never to part again.

He was born and reared in Cartersville, Ga., and as he grew to manhood he joined the Baptist church at that place, later moved his membership to Connesena Baptist Church, near Kingston. He later was married to Alice M. Collins, daughter of Perry G. Collins. Eleven children were born to them, two dying in infancy and one son was killed in a train wreck seven years ago. Only eight children survive with his widow.

The community surely never was shocked so bad before. He was in good health and went to Adairsville after his youngest daughter, who was still in school and when he came back he ate a hearty supper and was just like always, going on with his fun, and went to bed and about nine forty he died, only making a queer fuss which aroused the family.

He was sixty-three years of age. Lived most of his life in and around Barnsley. He was laid to rest at Halls Station.

The following acted as pallbearers: Messrs. R.L. Adams, C.C. Sherman, R.H. Kerce, H.L. Barnes, Harry Saylor and Wilkes Sherman. Rev. G.S. Bond, of Marietta and Brother Barnett of Ringgold, did the preaching and the Adairsville quartett had charge of the singing. W.P. Whitworth was in charge of funeral arrangements.
