1545. Nancy Rushie Akers

Wife of Joseph Hall

Sister Nancy Rushie Hall, the daughter of Elijah and Synthia J Akers, was born Dec 26,1889, and departed this life Jan 11,1932, being 42 years, 11 months and 16 days of age at death. She was married to Joe Hall Oct 2,1907 and unto them were born four children, two boys, Otis and Clyde Hall and two girls, Parilee and Onedeis Hall, all of whom remain in mourning for the loss of the noble mother. Sister Hall leaves and aged father and mother, nine brothers, to wit:Ben Akers, Marion Akers, Fonce Akers, Med Akers, Pearl Akers, Willie Akers, Fred Akers, Walter Akers, and Allen Akers, and one sister Ottowa Boyd as comourners in the loss of this humble Christian. She was preceded in death by one sister Parlee Stewart of Tippacanoe, Ohio and one brother Levi Otsego Akers, of Dana, KY, both of whom left a hope of life eternal. She joined the Old Regular Baptist Church at the Little Dove Church, Honaker, Ky., over twenty years, and shortly moved her fellowship to the New Salem Church, at Harold, Kentucky, where it remained until her death. No greater faith and godly devotion has been exhibited in this writer's vision than that manifested by this little believer. Her love for the old church never grew cold, even tho she was confined to her bed for over twelve years. During her long confinement, every season and sometimes oftener she would manifest her memory of the brethren and sisters by sending to the church a bunch of beautiful flowers, and accompany them with a written testimonial of her growing faith in God, and immeasurable love for Christ and his children, verily, like Job of old she persevered unfalteringly faithful through all her years of indescribable pain and suffering, and met the end with a smile on her face, saying "I have seen Christ and his angels coming after me." Her conversation, to the writer's personal knowledge, was the nearest a godly one, continually. Let me say, to these little children: You remember now, and no doubt will, when you grow old, your mother's life how she used to shout praises to her Lord, how she prayed and trusted in the great Jehovah. Do not forget that shining trail of purity of life, and steadfastness in faith, she left untarnished before you. Weep not for her loss, but rather believe in her God and Saviour that you may get ready to meet her in the bye and bye. To her aged father and mother, your days among the living are few. Renew your faith, and march on to the day when you can meet your daughter in a beautiful city. To her brothers and sister, weep not because of her silent slumber, but let your very souls behold the lamb of God through humble faith and repentance, which some of you have already done, that you too may live and die in the sweet hope of a glorious meeting of your sister, in a world where parting is not known. That frail, weak and sickly body that was planted in the lonesome cemetery on Prater Creek, was not handed down to oblivion. God almighty, knows today the very spot where it is sleeping. That soul that left this body smilingly and rejoicingly, is today resting and basking beneath the throne of God and his Son. No trouble, no pain, no worry, just a waiting angel that will come at God's command, one of these days with Christ, at a great sound of a trumpet together from one end of the earth to the other, all of these sleeping saints. Written by I. A. Smiley


3839. Ottis Manford Hall

It is with deepest sorrow that I will try to write an obituary
of my dearest husband Ottis M. Hall. He was born February 15, 1909
at Dana, Kentucky, and departed this life February 27, 1966, making
his stay here on earth 57 years 12 days. He was the son of Joe Hall
and Rushie Akers Hall. Both preceded him in death. On May 6, 1930
he was married to Ada Dawson and unto this union was born no child-
ren but he leaves a very sad and heart broken wife.
He was not baptized in this water here that runs down the strem
but I would never say he was not baptized by the fire and the Holy Ghost
because he loved the bible, the word of God. It pleased him to hear it
and I have heard him praise the Lord and he would say, Ada Let's read
the bible. About the last scripture we read together was Acts, the second
chapter . . . forty.seventh verse. So there are so many sweet words I
could say about him and the Bible but the sorrow is getting too great.

Written by his heart-broken wife, Ada Hall


Ada Dawson

HALL, ADA DAWSON
Ada Dawson Hall, age 86, of Hueysville, Ky., widow of Ottis Hall, passed away Monday, August 3, 1998, at Our Lady of the Way Hospital, Martin, Ky. She was the daughter of the late Efrom and Margaret Spears Dawson. She was born March 18, 1912, in Johnson County, Ky. Sister Hall was a homemaker and a member of the New Salem Church at Harold, Kentucky for 53 years.Sister Ada was never blessed to bear children. She and her husband, Ottis, moved to a farm in Ohio and after he died she lived there for many years. She loved her little home on the farm. For some unknown reason this home burned, which left her homeless. Sister Ada was blessed with a wonderful nephew, Chester Mullins, who was good to bring her to the New Salem Church, a place where she dearly loved to be. This was especially so at communion meeting time. Sister Ada was a very kind person and loved everyone she knew. She had a good word and wore a lovely smile for all that she came in contact with. Her last few months on earth were lived with a wonderful niece, Margaret Handshoe, at Hueysville, Ky. Margaret loved her Aunt Ada, and gave her the best of care. Then, finally, she became very sick and had to be placed in the hospital for a few days. One day she looked up at Margaret and said, "I want to thank you for all you have done for me." Shortly afterward she was called to her eternal home. I surely was blessed having Sister Ada as a friend, a sister in Christ, and a relative by marriage. I loved her visits to my home when it was possible for her to do so. So, dear Ada, you're sleeping by your husband on a lonely little cemetery. You don't hear the birds singing or see the lovely flowers blooming, and neither do you feel a gentle breeze as it sweeps across your face, but better things await you, farther on, that will pay you for all the hardships that you suffered during your natural life. When you awake all will be everlasting peace and joy in heaven with Jesus, the One you loved so much, and sang praises to His holy name.
Written by a sister in hope, Anna Sue Layne Clarke
