      FAMILY HISTORY IN RHYME by Dr.J.L.Fisher (married Pearl Hennessee)


      (in 1866:)
      There was a little family, Who lived in Tennessee, Father, Mother,
      Sisters, Brother, Whose name was Hennessee.

      (in 1878:)
      They lived in peace and pleasure, For twelve years and more, When Jesus
      called their Della, To Canaan's golden shore.

      (in 1881:)
      Then they lived together, For only three more years, When Jesus called the
      father, Beyond this vale of tears.

      Now, the mother and her children, For only six years more, Labored for a
      living, On Caney Fork's shore.

      (in 1887:)
      When Jesus called the mother, To come to Canaan's shore, To rest from her
      labor, With Him forevermore.

      Now in this cold world alone, Six orphans were left, To love and help each
      other on, Though the road be rough at best.

      (in 1897:)
      Then in Eighteen-Ninety-Seven Their sister Minnie died And went home to
      Heaven, To dwell by parents' side.

      (in 1914:)
      Now four sisters and a brother, In distant homes apart, In love for each
      other, Are joined in hand and heart.

      So may they live, so may they love, Till Jesus calls them home above, And
      this last line shall be my prayer, That they may meet each other there.
