Minister Passes To Reward - 

Rev. J. F. Carroll, aged 32 years, passed to his 
reward last Thursday, December 9, at his home at Soldier after a lingering 
illness of several months with that dread disease tuberculosis. For some time 
it has been known that he could not recover and all the time he held close to 
his Maker with an eye to Him who is mighty and able to deliver. He was His 
servant here for years and was at the time of his death minister at Soldier 
and pastor of the church at Soldier. The church and citizenship of Soldier 
know they have lost a friend and neighbor and the work of Christ's kingdom will miss him.     

He leaves a loving wife and three children, the eldest of 
whom is but six; a kind mother; three brothers and four sisters, a large 
church and a host of friends to grieve his departure. He told them all to 
prepare to meet him where he had gone to reap the reward laid up for him and 
all the true Christian workers. He was a member of the Pilgrim Holiness 
church, and his funeral was held at the church of which he was pastor, 
conducted by Rev. Raymond Simpkins, pastor of the local church here, after 
which his remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near. (Carter County 
Herald, Dec 16, 1926) I think his name was James Floyd Carroll, son of John 
Morgan and Phebe Ellen Smith.
