Biography* Cleveland County Herald, Cleveland County AR
Elizabeth Greenville Greenlees was born in Ala. March 28th, 1834, came with her parents to Ark. in 1851. Was twice married first to James C. Harrison, in 1858 afterwards to John C. Culpepper in 1867 and died at her home in Rison, Ark., Oct. 11, 1905. In early woman-hood she joined the M.E.C. South, and remained a consistent member of the same till the day of her translation.
It is no empty eulogy to say that in all the relations of life, she
measured up to the highest standard of what she conceivd to be her duty.
Her last illnes was many months. duration yet she bore her sufferings
with a patience and fortitude which evidenced the sustaining power of God's grace.
Calm and conscious till the tide of life had ebbed away and the last
pulse had tolled her funeral dirge, she knew no terror, felt no despair,
but with a trust unshaken she went Joyfully and serenely down into the valley of the shadow of death. Those who loved her doubt not that she received the welcome invitation "Come you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you".
Besides her husband she leaves one daughter, five sons and several grandchildren. To these our tenderest sympathies go forth; especially to the aged companion by whose side she journeyed so many years. It will not be long till he shall join her in that land of the _?_ where no sad partings ever come. May he be ever in God's holy keeping.
Beneath the flower strewn mound in the City Cemetery lies her sacred dust, her soul is triumphant in the Etysian Fields of the blest.
May all who love her meet her there.
Her friend Oct. 17, 1905.
