CHARLES H. MONROE
1865 - March 19, 1906
 
Charles H. Monroe died March 19, 1906, ate 41 at Clarksdale, Miss., at the home of his daughter Mrs. Henderson in full triumph of faith. His to was as most men of God, sometimes dark, but he ever knew how to keep a glad heart and trust God.
He felt an early call to the Ministry and joined the Conference in’81 at Shreveport under Bishop Foss and was sent to Campti as his first appointment. He improved his time and studied to do his work well. He helped in many worthy causes for our Methodism, also served some very important charges.
He was an excellent preacher, a brother indeed an ideal husband and devoted to his family. His one aspiration was to be a presiding elder, but it never came to him, for though a young man and just blooming into right maturity, the grim reaper ”Death” called him hence and he now lays down to sleep. He leaves a faithful wife and two daughters to mourn his loss.
His place is vacant among us, but his spirit lives on. We’ll see you again brother.
