Charlie was born in Haralson Co, GA on Feb. 25, 1880, one of nine children of William and Charlotte Lipham. To the end of his days, he spoke with fond appreciation of his parents, and frequently made references to expressions and witticisms of 'my sainted Irish Mother.'
Brother Lipham and Miss Annie Lois Longino were married December 20, 1905 in Fairburn, his first appointment. . . His last appointment (after 40 years' service) was Elberton First church where he helped complete a parsonage. After two years he retired because of ill health and came to Dalton to live in the lovely retirement home he had built on Greenwood Drive. From 1949 until his death he was associated with First Methodist Church, Dalton and was loved and honored by all.
From THE HISTORY OF BOWDON COLLEGE, by Render R. Caswell, 1978, p. 3.
"Charles Merrill Lipham attended college at Oxford, Georgia, where Emory College was located, 'a lovely little village in Newton County, situated on a beautiful plateau that only fifty years before had been covered in a virgin forest. . . Emory College had been founded in 1836 by Georgia Methodists who desired for their children orthodox religious education and the cultivation of a strong, unassailable faith.' Such was the college that. . .Charlie Lipham chose to attend. If he had not already been a devout Christian when he enrolled, he could hardly have breathed for four years the pervasive atmosphere of pious Methodism without accepting a Christian philosophy that would have changed the entire course of his life."
