SAMMONS, Ada   It is with thoughts of my Saviour on my mind that I will attempt to write part of my obituary. I, Ada Jean Branham Samons, was born June 21, 1952, the daughter of the late Elisha and Goldie McCoy Branham. I have left this earthly home for a beautiful Kingdom, on Friday, October 7, 2005. She is preceded in death by her mother and father; one brother, Russell Branham; three sisters: Alma Branham, Eusla Branham, and Anzie Branham. Her surviving brothers are Kenton Branham, Troy Branham, and Elisha Branham Jr. Her surviving sisters are Marie Tackett and Ann Sigler. Also many nieces and nephews, and one beloved dear friend, Lillian Akers. On August 7, 1971, I was united in marriage to Daniel Lee Samons, my companion of 34 years; not only my husband, but my brother in Christ. Some of my greatest blessings have been hearing him blessed by our Great God to preach his Gospel. To our union was born two daughters: Anzie Samons Thacker and Amy Lee Samons; one son-in-law, who is like my son, Scott Thacker; three precious grandchildren: Kayla Renee Thacker, Byron Scott Thacker, and Jason Daniel Lee Samons. On June 26, 1971, I was born again, a second time, this time as a child of God. This was the greatest day of my life. I have had many blessings, but this was the greatest one of all, and one I can always feel a great place like no other time, when I think back to that day. I was baptized by Elder Johnnie Hall and Elder Junia Damron, and blessed to wash my mother's feet that same day. In 1984, I washed her feet at home, this being her last communion before her death in 1985. I have had many illnesses in this life, but I want all my sickness and sorrow here. I know when I awake in that Great morning, I won't be sick anymore, and will be able to live forever with my Saviour. To my children, grandchildren, and my dear companion, I hate to leave you, but don't cry for me. I will be happy and not hurting anymore. Please keep God's faith, and some day we can meet again, never to be parted no more. Written by: Ada Samons Edited by: Anzie Thacker Funeral for Ada Jean Samons will be conducted Monday, October 10, 2005, at 1 p.m., at the Hall Funeral Home Chapel, in Martin, with Regular Baptist ministers officiating.

SCOTT, Andy   Obituary of Andy Scott as found in the Minutes of the One Hundred and Sixty-Eighth Annual Session of The New Salem Association of Old Regular Baptist 1993. Original copy in the possession Terry Triplett. Obituary of Andy Scott, Written by his son-in-law Terry Triplett It is with a heavy heart that I write the obituary of my Father-in-law Andy Scott. Andy was born on Stone Coal Creek, in Garrett, Kentucky (Floyd County) on May 18, 1912 to Jefferson Scott and Mary Ward Scott, and passed this life on August 1, 1993 making his stay on earth 81 years, 2 months and 14 days. Early in life he met and married Callie Hale, who proceeded him in death, and to this union was born 13 children. Two children, Elizabeth Scott and Dan Scott also preceded him in death. Left to mourn his passing are 4 sons, Earnest Scott, Randolph Scott, Frank Scott and Rodney Scott. Seven daughters, Wanda Lee Rister, Imolene Hicks, Irene Butcher Talaska, Linda Faye Christain, Sallie May Pratt, Mattie Ruth Triplett and Mary Sue Wicker. 46 Grand Children, 37 Great Grand Children, 2 Great Great Grand Children and many many friends. Andy was a hard worker all his life. He Retired from two unions, the UMWA (united mine workers of America) and the Laborers International Union. He was proud to be a union worker for over 50 years. In his retirement he loved hunting and fishing and enjoyed life to it's fullest. Andy never joined a church, but attended Stone Coal Old Regular Baptist Church regularly and felt that it was his home. Four days before Andy died Elder Ed Moore said he had a dream about Andy. He said in his dream he and Andy were cutting down a tree. Ed said that the tree was made of glass and it was sparkling like crystal. Ed said in his dream that they cut the tree down and he turned to see Andy and he was climbing up a limb like a squirrel and disappeared in a cloud. Ed said Andy never looked back. On the morning of the day Andy passed away, I think he knew he was dying, but I never saw any fear in his eyes. As the day grew longer and he grew weaker, his love for his family and friends grew stronger. When the time came, he just went to sleep. In my heart I feel that a band of Angels was around his bed to take him home. The Bible says that a tree is known by the fruit it bears. I've been a member of Andy's family for 23 years, Andy's fruit was good.  Submitted by trip608@msn.com

SCOTT, Callie Hale    Obituary of Callie Hale Scott as found in the Minutes of the One Hundred and Sixty-First Annual Session of The New Salem Association of Old Regular Baptist 1986. Original copy in the possession Terry Triplett. Callie Hale Scott With the help of the good Lord and all the fond memories I hold so precious to me, I'll try to write an obituary of my beloved mother, Callie Hale Scott. Mom was born January 16, 1917 at Manton, Kentucky. She entered into eternal rest on Easter Sunday, March 30, 1986, making her stay on earth a little over 69 years. In early life mom met, loved and married Andy Scott, and to this union thirteen children were born (two of whom preceded Mom in death). Left to mourn her passing are her companion, Andy; four sons; Ernest of Romulus, Mich., Randolph of Westland, Mich, Frank and Rodney, both of Garrett, Kentucky; seven daughters; Wanda Rister, Sally Pratt and Mattie Triplett all of Garrett, Kentucky, Imolene Hicks of Albion, Mich., Irene Talaska of Westland, Mich., Linda Christian of Romulus, Mich., and Mary wicker of Rom City, Ind.. Also left to mourn her passing are forty-four Grandchildren, eighteen Great-Grandchildren, two brothers and a sister. Mom was a kind and Loving person, she was always thinking of us children and our needs. In our times of hardships, mom would always want to know if we needed help from her and dad. She didn't want us to do without the things we needed. I've always thought my parents were the best anybody could have. We didn't have a lot of money, but we had and still have plenty of love for each other. I've heard Elder Burt Howard say so many times around deaths and funerals that if a person has the faith and believes, God will show them that there loved one is at rest. I've had such beautiful dreams about my Mother, and I belive with all my heart that she's at rest. She's a sleep in Jesus, waiting for that trumpet to sound so she can go home, where there will be no more sickness and suffering. Our family sends out our thanks and love to all the beautiful people who helped us in our time of need. A special thanks to Brother Morris Wicker and Brother Jerry Manns; they stood by our family all the way. God bless both of you. I write this in Loving memory of my precious mother, whom I will never forget as long as I live. Written by: Your loving daughter, Mattie Triplett  Submitted by trip608@msn.com
