A member of the Georgia Constitutional Convention of 1861. A strong advocate for local self-government. Well has thou fought the better fight against opposing numbers the cause of truth. In word mightier than they in arm. And for testimony of truth hath borne unmerited reproach. Far worse to bear than VIOLENCE.
A kind husband A tender loving father Ever faithful in friendship Remembering the widow and the orphan An humble Christian He daringly (?) Bid his children Rely on Jesus He was for 34 years a member of the Baptist Church For by grace are we saved through faith and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God.
