from The Gospel Advocate, April 1928

     Brother Morg Burns, of Magness, Ark., died on March 3, 1928.
He was born on August 20, 1855.  He was married to Molly Holderby 
in 1880, to which union were born fifteen children, of whom twelve 
survive.  He obeyed the gospel in 1900.  Every preacher that has 
held meetings at Magness for a quarter of a century will remember 
Brother Burns, whose home was not more than a stone's cast from 
the church house.  He was truly a preacher's friend, an enthusiastic 
worker in the church, and his innocent peculiarities and manner of 
expression made a lasting impression on all who knew him.  I reached 
Magness on March 1, and learning that he was sick, Brother Jernigan 
and I drove by to see him.  As an example of his peculiar manner of 
expression, he said to me:  "Well, I am through.  I don't want a 
thing--no cattle, sheep, hogs--not a thing.  I have nothing to do but 
to die."  I have known him many years, as I held my first protracted 
meeting at Magness in 1898, and have held meetings there since and 
preached numerous times.  Brother Burns was a Christian and an untiring 
worker in the church.  He was a real asset to the congregation, and none 
would be missed more than Brother Burns.  Funeral services were conducted 
by the writer in the church house.  May his children remember his good 
counsel, and join him "in the sweet by and by."
