In Memory of D.A. Lindsey obituary

David Alexander Lindsey was born in Monroe County, Tennessee, March 7, 1863, and departed this life in the hope of a glorious immortality on Jan. 31, 1905, near Dyersburg, aged 41 years, 10 months and 24 days.
He was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Evans, of Georgia, in 1882 (3/30/1881 Whitfield Co., Ga), and with her walked life's journey in loving sympathy and fellowship for 23 years. To them were born twelve children, seven of whom preceded their father to glory and gave him welcome to that world of bliss.
About a year and a half ago, Alex was converted and joined the M.E. Church, South, at Ferguson, on the Fowlkes circuit. As a husband, father, and citizen Alex lived an exemplary life. He was a life worthy of emulation. Always honest, king, and true, he had a host of friends, and not a known enemy.
Shortly before dying he called to his bedside his weeping wife and five children and kissed them saying to his wife: "Lizzie, don't weep for me, I am going to a better place than this. While you are here with five of our children, i will be in heaven with seven. Don't weep for me." Then he closed his eyes in Jesus.
We would say to the bereaved wife and children, that God in this kindness has only taken their companion and father over home, of of pain and into bliss, and that he stands in the other shore to complete the circle if they only trust in Jesus.
Upton hearing of the death of his Uncle Alex, Oscar Evans, now in College at Athens, Tenn.,wrote to his aunt and the five children the following stanzas. Coming from a heart saddened by the news, they are burdened with good advice:
Weep no for those before us gone, Nor grieve after things that are past, But try to gain what others have wond, and rejoice with them at last."
