Father Dawson of Beech Grove
Father Dawson passed away Wednesday, December 24. Mr. Dawson lived to a ripe old age. He said several times before he died that he was just waiting to go home. He was much help in church work, and we were always glad to hear him talk in public.
He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his departure. His remains were laid to rest in the Friar graveyard in the presence of a large crowd of friends and neighbors. We would way to the bereaved ones, to live faithful to the end, and you will surely meet your husband and father in the bright beyond.
Daily Soliphone, Jan. 1,, 1902
