      The following is from a newspaper obituary about Charles David Roper of Stewart County, Tennessee.

      Author of obituary is A.J. Simer.

      "DIED: At his residence is Stewart County, Tennessee, on the 10th, Mr. Charles Roper, in the 83d year of his age.

      He is no more; he has passed from time to Eternity. Truly may it be said of him, that he died the death of the righteous. He esponsed the Christian Religion, and attached himself to the Methodist Epistocopal Church about 58 years ago, and if it can be said of any now, He was an Israelite in whom there was no guile.

      While his eleven living Children feel deeply his loss, they rejoice in the full assurance that their loss is his gain; and that he has gone to join their Angel Mother who died Feb. 4th, 1867, and their Sainted Brothers and Sister, who we have reason to believe are now basking in the Eternal Sunshine around the Throne of God.

      He was born in the State of North Carolina, May 23d, 1787, and emigrated to Tennessee in 1808, and was married to Rachael Atkins, Feb. 10th, 1810. From the date of his marriage to that of his death, he lived in this County. He leaves a large circle of acquaintances beside his numerous relatives who mourn his loss.

      He was one of the first settlers of this County. He served under Gen. Jackson, in the war of 1812, was at the battle of Tipecanoe and Horseshoe bend, 1815, was discharged from service Feb. 12th 1815.
