Robert Emmitt Fleming: I will now try to write an obituary of a dear friend and Brother in Christ. Robert Emmitt Fleming was born June 17, 1875 and deceased April 24, 1971 being 95 years, 7 monjths, and 7 days old.

He was married to Rose Colley Fleming in 1897 (now deceased) and to hthis union were born 6 sons; Ireland, Earl, Curtis, Ralph, and Tim Fleming all of Clintwood, Va., and one son deceased Lawrence Fleming, also Ayers Fleming, another son deceased. Three daughters living and one deceased, Pearl Fleming, the living daughters are, Mrs. Clarice Rowlett of Bristol, Va., Mrs. Marie Sutherland of Baltimore Maryland, Mrs. Parry Swecker of Baltimore Maryland. He also leaves 31 grandchildren, 52 great grandchildren and 13 great great grandchildren. He will be missed dearly by all his loved ones, but especially by his children.
His second marriage was to Mary Jane Mullins, who is now deceased. His third marriage was to Ollie May Adams, and his fourth marriage was to Rose Coasten who is his living widow.
He joined the old Regular Baptist Church Nov., 8, 1947, and was batpized by Elder Joe Jones and lived many years as a member of the church.
We must say, sleep on Brother Emmitt, some day God will awake you and take you to live with him forever.
