Daisy Belle Johnson
Daisy Belle, daughter of William H. and Nancy A. Johnson, was 
born Sept. 26, 1878, and died Nov. 15, 1899, aged 21 years, 1 
month and 19 days.

She was very studious and planned to fit herself for teaching, 
and had received a teacher license, when she was stricken with 
that fatal disease, consumption.  She fought bravely against 
the disease, and would ride out in the buggy only a few days 
before her death.

She was converted and joined the M.E. Church at Pleasant Grove 
in December, 1891 under the labors of Rev. W. D. McIntosh.  She 
was faithful to the services of the church and walked in the ways 
of righteousness.  She was perfectly resigned to her lot, and said 
to her pastor, "It is all right; I am willing to go or stay, just 
as God wills."  And to her friends, in the hour of death, she said, 
"I am so happy,  I will soon be with Jesus," and then calmly told 
all present good-by, and with the last audible word was praising 
God. Her death was one of great victory.
The funeral services were conducted at Hopewell Friday, Nov. 17, at 
11 o'clock, by her pastor, the writer, and a great congregation of 
weeping relatives and friends followed her to the cemetery, where 
she was laid to rest.
