Mr. Junkins united with the Baptist church when a young man while living in the state of Maine. A short time afterward he came west and located in Kansas, where he resided until about thirty-five years ago when he came to Dallas county where resided until the death angel summoned him to his home in heaven.
After coming to this county he united with the Christian church at Pea Ridge, 1873, and remained a faithful servant of his Master until death. He will be greatly missed by his family, his friends and the community in which he lived. He was a kind father, and excellent neighbor and a worthy citizen. If his life were imitated by our citizens the quality of the county's manhood would be improved. It pleased him to see his children advance in life with a Godly walk and his instrutions to them was always in keeping with Holy Writ.
His remains were interred in the Benton Branch cemetery.
He leaves to mourn his death a wife and eight children and a host of friends; and to whom we would say; Weep not for him who's won the race And through true faith rests in God's grace; But only live and trust in God, And you'll meet when the long rough way is trod.
