Gospel Advocate Obituary

   Brother Lucas North was born in Ohio ninety-one years ago, but moved to this State (Tennessee) with his parents when but a child and located at Ethridge, Tenn., where he spent his long and useful life.  He leaves, to mourn their loss, two sons, four daughters, thirty-four grandchildren, and fifty-one great-grandchildren, also two sisters.  For more than forty years Brother North preached the gospel and had a large part in establishing and building up the congregation.  He was a man who everybody that knew him loved, and in whom everybody had the utmost confidence.  Brother North is gone, but his godly life and wholesome teaching will live in the hearts of those who knew him for many years to come.  Funeral services were conducted by Brother Mann, of Riverside, Tenn., before a large congregation in the church at Ethridge, on December 23, 1930.  Brother J. M. Hottel and the writer also made short talks.

The Death of Sarah Beard Gallahan North

   Sarah Beard Gallahan was born on April 25, 1841; was married to Lucas North on January 23, 1861; obeyed the gospel about the year 1871; and passed from earth to her reward on October 3, 1910.  She leaves a husband, Brother Lucas North (who is not a stranger to the readers of the Gospel Advocate), two sons, five daughters, thirty-six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren to mourn their loss.  The writer preached her funeral in the meetinghouse at Ethridge, Tenn., in the presence of a large congregation of friends and relatives.  Brother North has lost a loving companion; her children, a devoted mother; her neighbors, a true friend; and the church at Ethridge, one of its most faithful members.  May the Lord sustain and care for all the faithful and bereaved ones.

The North family plot is located in the old Etheridge Cemetery, Etheridge, Tennessee. Out of Lawrenceburg, head north about five miles on Highway 43. You will come to the community of Etheridge. Look for the Church of Christ on the left. Just before getting to it, turn left on Etheridge-Red Hill Rd. (CO. 938). Take the seventh street to the right, N. Maple Ave. Go to the end, and the road will make a sharp turn to the left. Enter the main cemetery though the gate where the sign is located on the right. Just as you enter, go to the left a little, and the North Family plot will be closeby.
