Photograph Needed


REV. ALFRED I. BONE was born in the state of Kentucky, Feb. 27, 1821. Professed religion and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church when young. Was ordained ruling elder when he was twenty-one, and was for a number of years an efficient ruling elder. He joined Ewing Presbytery (Ark.) as a candidate for the ministry, Oct., 1867, and was licensed to preach the gospel at the same meeting of the Presbytery. When King Presbytery was organized he was within her bounds. On the 18th day of October, 1869, he was ordained by King Presbytery to the whole work of the ministry. Brother Bone was not what the world calls a great preacher, notwithstanding that he was a close thinker and what the writer calls a good theologian. But brother Bone is gone. He breathed his last Nov. 24, 1882. Truly a good man has gone. "Write blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, they rest from their labors, and their works do follow them."
