Obits For The House Surname
From Tate County, Mississippi

Obit of
John Dean House

The Tate County Democrat, May 1887

One more little Lamb called for from time to time we have been called upon to chronicle the departed worthy and give the history and character they have made while living. Especially what man has done while in the flesh. But when we are called upon to chronicle the death of Sam J and Nellie House's infant son, J Dean House, who died May 11, 1887, he being 10 months old. We have only to refer you to the sacred history to get its character and to know its final destination for there we learn when Christ was on earth he called little children unto him and took them to his arms and blessed them and said: Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven. "Then we can only say, this little lamb is a bright little angel in His Kingdom, and has added one more polished stone to his building. But to its Parents we would say, while it almost breaks their very hearts to part with him, he has only gone before to draw their affection upon high and when God calls for them they may be prepared as polished stones to be placed in that same building, and while love is the adhesive element, may the love for this infant be the cement that will unite the several stones into one common mass to complete the great temple of the Lord.
