Pleasant Mound Masonic Lodge, Master Mason
Whereas, the afflicting hand of a kind Providence has been laid heavily upon us, we deeply deplore the death of our beloved brother, E. J. Plunkett, who departed this life 17 August, 1886; therefore, be it
Resolved, that in the death of Bro. Plunkett, Pleasant Mound Lodge No. 234 has lost one of its best members, and society one of its brightest stars, and the country one of its best citizens.
Resolved, that the Lodge most sincerely sympathizes with the family in there bereavement.
Resolved, that the Lodge wear the usual badge of mourning for the next thirty days, and that the W.M. appoint a committee to write out an obituary of Bro. Plunkett, and present to the widow one copy, and have one copy published in the Paris EXPRESS and one copy in the Magazine Serpent.
Brother E. J. Plunkett was born in what is now Logan County, Ark., 18 December, 1843; wedded Mary J. Bennett 7 November, 1869. Professed religion in August and joined the C.P. Church 30 September, 1874, and lived a devoted Christian until death. He was an affectionate husband and father, and an industrious, energetic farmer. He was made a Master Mason in Pleasant Mound Lodge No. 234 10 March, 1870, and soon became a bright, good worker, and was elevated to the highest position in the Lodge, and faithful in all his house, and highly esteemed by all who knew him. He was Sr. W. at the time of his demise. He was buried with Masonic honors 18 August, 1886. He leaves a widow, nine children, and many relatives and friends to mourn his untimely death; but we trust his loss to them is eternal gain to him, and we hope that all may so live as to meet him on the bright, sunny shore.
