This lady, whose portrait we give, was born in Hardin county, Tenn., June 5, 1853, and the same year moved to St. Genevieve county, Missouri. At a protracted meeting in July, 1873, held by the pastor of Macedonia Baptist church, in Dent county, Mo., this sister was brought to Christ and through baptism (by Elder Adams) into said church. Returned to Hardin county, Tenn., in 1874, and on September 24, same year, united in marriage with Elder Peter S. Bruner, in Perry county, Mo., and came immediately to Texas. From that day her life and labors have been joined with his.
