Arnold Jarmon McLean Phillips

Obituary of L. B. Jarmon, Wartrace, Tennessee.

Rev. L. B. Jarmon died on August 7, 1920, at his home, in Wartrace, Tenn,. aged seventy-five years. He became a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church forty-two years ago. I knew him intimately for twenty-five years as a freind, neighbor, and pastor and can truly say that the world has not produced many men his equal. Most of his ministerial life was in the Duck River Association, and he was well known and loved by the host of Baptists in Middle Tennessee. Truly a great and good man in Isreal has fallen. His life was an inspiration, and he will be missed in his community. He and his wife celebrated their golden wedding anniversary a short time before his death. Seven children survivie him-three sons and four daughters.

As a Confederate soldier L. B. Jarmon entered the army at the age of seventeen, and he was paroled at the end of the war. He enlisted in the 4th Tennessee Cavalry under Joe Wheeler, and his captain was J. M. Phillips, afterwards a baptist preacher. He was wounded in the left kneecap and was sent to the hospital in Columbus, Ga., where he remained for some time. After being paroled he returned home, getting there safely by May 18, 1865. He was married to Miss Fannie McLean, of Midland, Rutherford County, 1870, and was a devoted husband and father.

"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

[J.O. Arnold]
