The Gospel Messenger, Volume 8, No. 11 – November 1886:
Mrs. Elizabeth Maynor.
My mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Maynor, widow of W. H. Maynor, died at her home, Lee County, Ala., July 24th, 1886, in her 83rd year. She was a daughter of Asa Cox, and sister to Jesse and James Cox, of Harris County, Ga. She leaves eight living children, sixty-three grandchildren, and forty four great grandchildren. She lived to see one of her third generation married. For fifty-five years she was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church. For some time she was a member at Mt. Moriah, in Muscogee County, Ga., but subsequently was connected with the church at Providence, Lee County, Ala., which church finally dissolved, and the record is now with the church at Mt. Olive. Our hearts and homes are thus made desolate, but death is the gate that opens out of earth to a home eternal in the heavens. We hand our harps upon the willows and mourn for a time here, but hers is "strung and tuned by power divine."
She often said of her children that when done with the world all would be well with her. May we be enabled by faith to walk life's rugged way, knowing that every step brings us nearer to Jesus and to our dear mother, and other loved ones, in the heavenly glory, where we shall meet to part no more.
But, O! beyond this shadow land,
Where all is happy there,
We know full well those dear old hands,
Will palms of victory wear.
- Mrs. F. G. White.
