Obituary: Rebecca Tackett
19 Aug 1837 - 13 Jan 1913

August 19, 1837. She was the daughter of a Pioneer Regular Baptist preacher to wit: Rev. Jessie Caudill. She was married to Abel Tackett, Sr., February 22, 1855. She joined the Long Fork Church of Regular Baptist April the third Saturday, 1879. And was baptized on the third Saturday in May, 1879 by Rev. William McCown. From that day up to the end of her earthly life, she lived the life of a faithful Christian. We believe the world was made better by the life of this noble Christian woman, Her examples of virtue and modesty will live in the minds of her children, grandchildren and neighbors for many years to come. We were truly grieved to give up this good sister and mother but it pleased God whom she has served so faithful for about thirty three years to call for her and to take her from this world of trouble into a world of eternal rest, where today we do believe she is sweetly resting on the "banks of sweet Canaan" in company with her dear old father, husband and daughter who crossed the stormy Jordon before her, Yes in company with a host of Angels. All playing on harps of gold awaiting redemption, to wit: the redemption of their bodies. The funeral of sister Tackett will be preached on the second Saturday and Sunday in September, 1914. All of her relatives, friends and neighbors in fact all lovers of Christian virtue is invited to be present. Written by: Willard S. Akers
