Southern Tidings, 27 June 1934, Volume XXVI #26
Taylor - Dolton Dennis Taylor was born December 26, 1911, and met a tragic death Saturday night, June 9, when the truck in which he was returning home from camp meeting collided with another truck, and our brother was instantly killed. Brother Taylor lived four miles south of Quitman, Miss. During the tent effort held in Quitman last summer, he and his faithful wife walked night after to attend the meetings. On January 27 of this year he was baptized and united with the Quitman church. He attended the spring colporteurs' institute and started at once doing resident colporteur work. He loved the truth with all his heart, and was doing all he could to spread the glad tidings of salvation to others. He leaves to mourn his death his parents, wife, a two-year-old son, and many other relatives and friends. He rests from his labors, but we believe as a result of his life and influence many other will yet be led to give themselves to the Lord as completely as did our brother. In the glorious resurrection morning we expect to meet our brother again. Words of comfort were spoken by the writer. Interment was in a cemetery near his home. L.A. Butterfield.
