John F. FINK

At 10 o'clock Sunday morning the spirit of Mr. Jno. F. Fink passed away without a struggle of manifestation of the sting of death.  Mr. Fink was known to be afflicted with heart disease and was carefully attended.  Sunday morning he rose as usual and did the usual turns to which he was accustomed, but later complained of not feeling well.  About 10 o'clock he lay down on his bed.  Very soon his daughter noticed that the breathing manifested dissolution and he soon breathed his last.  Mr. Fink would soon have reached his 77th birthday.  He was an exemplary Christian, having connected himself with Cold Water Lutheran church at an early age.  He was one of the charter members of St. James church in 1843 and has been one of the pillars of that church for 53 years, serving much of the time of late years as an elder.  Mr. Fink does not leave a large circle of immediate relatives, an only daughter, Mr. J. Frank Fink, two sisters, Mrs. Solomon Cline of Mt. Pleasant and Mrs. Sandy Earnhardt, who lived near him, and a half brother, Mr. Alvius Fink of Linwood.  Mr. Fink had been married twice, first to a Miss Winecoff and after her decease to Miss Neisler, who also preceeded him to the spirit world.  The funeral was preached by his pastor, Rev. Miller, at 1:30 o'clock, and the body was placed in the Lutheran cemetery to await the resurrection of the just.  Mr. Fink will be greatly missed at St. James at the Sunday morning services, where he so regularly filled his place in the community that reverenced him.   Source: "A Landmark Removed," The Daily Concord Standard, 10 January 1898, digital images, North Carolina Digital Heritage Center ( :accessed  22 October 2017).

Cary Ella FLOWE

On Wednesday night, October 28, our community was shocked and saddened by the death of one of our most lovable young ladies, Miss Cary Ella Flowe.  She was a member of Boger's Methodist Church, and was faithful to every trust committed to her.  She was a young lady of high integrity, loyal to every good cause.  She will be greatly missed by a host of friends, old and young, of the entire community.  The bereaved family has the deepest sympathy of the entire community.  Ella was the only child at home.  Besides her parents she leaves one sister, Mrs. M. L. Smith.  The remains were laid to rest Friday at Boger's Chapel, under a bank of beautiful flowers.  Notwithstanding the cold and gloomy weather one of the largest crowds that ever assembled at that church, came to pay their last respects to this lovely young lady.   Source: "Miss Cary Ella Flowe," The Concord Times, 5 November 1925, digital images, North Carolina Digital Heritage Center ( : accessed 12 February 2020).
