    Notes 
    • "Mrs J C Scivally
      Mrs Martha Ann Scivally, wife of J C Scivally of this Conference and daughter of Rev M L Martin , was born in Prentiss County, Mississippi, August 5th, 1855. She with her parents, moved to Texas in 1870

      On November 29th, 1876, She was happily married to J C Scivally. Later Brother and Sister Scivally came to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma and in 1884, rev J C Scivally entered the itinerancy in Indian Mission Conference. From that good day to the day of her death... A period of almost Thirty-six years.. this faithful, devoted wife of an itinerancy Methodist Preacher, together with her husband went up and down this new land of their adoption, proclaiming a gospel of glad tidings to God's sometimes neglected poor.

      Their work has largely been a frontier work. They lived on small salaries, having never received, in all these thirty-six years of ardent and exception ally successful labor, as much as $1,000 for any single year's work. Their parsonages have often been small and uncomfortable.

      Twenty years ago they were sent to a town within the bounds of what is now the Chickasha District-- to a town now supporting one of our good stations. Their first night in this then frontier town was spent in a small log parsonage. It rained all the first night, and Brother and Sister Scivally had to stand in the leaky room and hold the two ends of a quilt over the heads of their children to protect them from the downpour of rain. This faithful woman never talked of hardships; never complained; never falter; never failed; courageous; self-sacrificing, counting not her life dear unto her, that she might finish that ministry that they had received of the Lord Jesus.

      She was the mother of ten children, five of whom preceded her by the glory world. The other Five-- all members of their mother's church--have set their faces heavenward, and together with their father-her husband- our dear Brother Scivally, are living in happy anticipation of meeting with wife and mother, loved and lost a while, in the sweet by and by, in the city which hath foundations whose builder and maker is God

      The end of earth's Pilgrimage to this faithful servant of God, came on evening of February 23rd, 1920, in the parsonage at Vinson, Oklahoma, where for the three preceding years, with her husband, as pastor and wife, they had so successfully labored among the people of Vinson charge

      Funeral services were conducted by Rev. J W Sims, assisted by Rev R L Ownbey, in the home church at Vinson, on February 24th at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, in the midst of the largest congregation ever assembled in that community

      The Woman's Missionary Society had charge of all arrangements. The attended in a body, Sister Scivally's chair being appropriately draped and vacant. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. The music was sweet and heavenly, after which she was laid to rest, awaiting the Resurrection Day"
