"Mrs. J C. Scivally

Mrs Martha Ann Scivially, wife of Rev. J. C. Sivally, of this Conference, and daughter of Rev. M. L. Martin (for more about him go to my Martin page) was born Prentiss County, Mississippi, August 5th,1855. She,with her parents, moved to Texas in 1870.

On Nove 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 intinerancy in Indian Mission Conference. From that good day to the day of her death- a period of almost thirty-six years-thi faithful, devoted wife of an intnerant Methodist preacher, together with her husband, went up and own 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 seceived, in all these thirty-six years of ardent and exceptionally sucesful labor, as much as $1,000 for any single year's work. Their parsonages haver often been small and uncomfortable

Twenty years ago they were sent to a town within the bounds of what is now the Chickasha Districk- to a towbn 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 that first night and Brother and Sister Scivally had to stand in the leaky room and hold the two ends of a quilt over their sleeping children to protect them from the downpour of rain.

She was mother of 10 children children, five of whom preceded her to the glory world. The other five- all members of their mother' church- have set their faces heavenward and together with their father- her husband- our dear Brother Scivally, are living in happy antication of meeting 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 God, came on the evening of Febuary 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 Febuary 24th at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, in the midst of the largest congregation ever assembled in that community,

"Rev. J. C. Scivally

In the passing of Rev. J. C. Scivally, which occurred at the home for a relative near Mangum, Oklhoma, on the morning of July 16,1932, the Methodist Church lost a circuit rider of the old type. He belonged to that robust class of men who laid the foundation of our Methodism in this state. He was not one of the first to come to the Indian Mission Confernce, for he did not appear until 1884, at which time he was admitted on trial at White Bead Hill.

For well nigh forty years the real pioneers had been penetration the hitherto crude and untouched settlements, and yer Brother Scivally began his work in fields unlike any we have today. The country was rough and roads were crudely laid out and rarley or never improved. The schools were of the most elementary type, and so such thing was know n as a man owning his home.

It was a story of the Old West to sit and hear him tell of the experences of himself and family in those earlier days. Most of us would hesitate long before we would willingly consent to be sent to the fields he regarded as a great priviege and opportunity.

Twelve years ago, this writher held funeral of his wife, and n the seventeenth day of July, 1832, assisted by his presiding Elder, Rev. E. A. Read and his Pastor, Rev. T. H. Ward and Rev R. B. Moreland and V. W. McNeeley, we held his funeral at Vinson, Oklahoma, and laid his body to rest beside that of his wife in cemetery at Vinson.

He was born in Tennessee February 4,1852 and at his death was slightly more than eighty years and five months old, and here we pause until the dawn of another day.
