KIND WORDS FOR KENNETH NEWBERN

Kenneth R Newbern was born in Jarvisburg Currituck county, North Carolina March 11, 1906 and died at five minutes after one o'clock on the  the afternoon of August 5, 1926 age 20 years, four months 25 days after an illness of seven weeks duration, during which all that tender hands and medical attention could do both in the home and in St. Christopher's Hospital in Norfolk VA. was done to preserve his life; But the young life full of promise and so valuable to us all, seemed destined to close its activities here; and he gradully  grew worse until death put an end to his youthful ambition just in the morning of a bright young manhood. He leaves to mourn their loss his father Nicholas C. and Mae Dutcher Newbern, his mother. Also four brothers, Graham, Nicholas Jr, Thomas and Fred Newbern, of Jarvisburg, N. C. Six sisters Mrs. Nellie Flora of Moyock, N. C., Mrs. Grace Forbes of Currituck, N. C., Mrs. Janie O' Neal, Olive, Ruby, and Hester Newbern of Jarvisburg. To know Kenneth was to love him. Honor, chastity, congeniality, and frankness were his chief virtures,  what was conspicuous to all who knew him was his devotion to his mother. We may appropriately say of Kenneth his sun has gone down while it is still day. In the glorious resurrection day which is close at hand He will be able to respond to the dictates of divine love and  justice  and the writer feels confident he will be among the meek who shall inherit the earth.  Tis better to die before the life gets stained with sin and come up in the resurrection with rightous inclinations than live to be stained by the wicked world and driven by trouble in to wrong and come forth that day to be corrected by the stern judgements of him to whom every knee must bow and every tongue confess. Thus while we mourn let us keep in mind that Kenneth is better off than we are who wait behind.  Look up into the face of God and in your hearts say

 "Dear God, let skies be overcast
that seems best to thee,
Take from my arms the dearest thing
thy love has given me,
Let sweet or bitter fill  my cup
according to thy will,
I will closer clasp thy hand in mine
and in the flame hold still
And thus altho thou slay me
I will praise thee night and day
I will lay each burden at thy feet
and bear a song away."

Kenneth Raynor Newbern was born March 11, 1906 and died August 5,1926, living his whole life in Jarvisburg, NC.  He was the son of Nicholas C. and Lillie Mae Dutcher Newbern.  Kenneth is buried beside his parents in the field behind the home of Murden Newbern, the daughter-in-law of Nicholas & Mae. This was across the road (NC 158) from the location of the Newbern home which was also the former home of Governor Jarvis. I believe these graves were moved to this location when the road was widened.  (Note: There was another Kenneth Raynor Newbern, son of Graham Newbern and grandson of Mae and Nicholas Newbern.).  (Submitted by Glenda Walker who found these items written by an unknown author in the Dutcher Bible and has kindly offered them to this site.)
