    Obituary: Sarah A. Minerva (Martin) Gable
    "The Southern Christian Advocate," 1 April 1885
    page 7, column 4

    GABLE Mrs. Sarah M. Gable was born Jan 10, 1817, and died Jan 24, 1885 after a brief illness. She was one of the oldest Methodists in the community in which she lived; having professed religion in early life and united with the church, she remained true to the end. She lived to a good old age and died in the full assurance of that hope which was set before her in the Gospel. Knowing in whom she had believed, and being persuaded that He was able to keep that which she had committed unto Him against that day, she breathed her life out sweetly with Him. J. D. F.
