OBITUARY: Christian Messenger, Wednesday, July 24, 1889

In Memoriam
John C. Elliott was born in Marshall county, Tenn., Jan. 24th, 1827. Married to Alcy J. Bills, daughter of Dr. A. G. Bills, deceased, of Lewisburg, Tenn., Aug. 6th 1846. On May 25th, 1889, his soul was wafted back to God, who gave it, and all that was mortal of John C. Elliott was deposited by the side of the dust of his noble and true Christian wife, (who died July 16th, 1884,) in the old graveyard at Biardstown, Lamar county, Texas. Most of his life was spent in and around Lewisburg, Tenn., and he never tired of talking of the noble good people and old soldiers of the cross, who with him enlisted early in the ranks of the Reformation. ... For fifteen years he had lived in Lamar Co., Texas, and while he loved the home of his adoption, he always had a yearning for the old home.

He loved the Advocate, was a constant reader of it for many years. He knew its editors personally and loved them devotedly for their fidelity to the cause he loved above all else....

For me to say that John C. Elliott was for almost his entire life time a true Christian, only voices what all who have ever known him know to be true; then what higher tribute can we pay - what more can we say? To my mind no higher honor to morals belongs. We have no conception of anything higher. A Christian! That embraces everything good, grand, high, noble and sublime. John C. Elliott was a true follower of Christ. Oh, could I have it said of me, when I shall have finished my course here on earth, truthfully, as I have said of John C. Elliott, - he was a Christian. What more could I ask? What more could I expect? My nature is so different to his, I am so resentful, so impetuous and my ambitious nature is so hard to control. May God help us all to be resigned to his will and to control our sinful natures is our prayer.

Fraternally, JAMES A. ELLIOTT
Paris, Texas July 16, 1889.
