Date of Death: March 18, 1925


Franklin B. Pogue was born near Maple Plain, Minn., July 20, 1898; and died March 18, 1925. He was the eldest son of Elder James F. Pogue, a well-known Seventh-day Adventist minister, who died in 1910. Brother Pogue was educated for service in the cause. In 1918 he took up work in the North Dakota Conference as Secretary of the Tract Society, and in the month of August last year he was asked to take also the position as Secretary-Treasurer of that conference. He rendered excellent service in this capacity. His illness was short, and his death was a shock to all.

The services were conducted in the Jamestown church before a large audience. The writer officiated, and Elder Charles Thompson delivered the funeral address. Brother Pogue is survived by his wife, three children, mother, one brother, and one sister.
