Rev John Thomas Singleton
Birth: Jul. 15, 1872
Georgia, USA
Death: Jun. 29, 1945
Atlanta
Fulton County
Georgia, USA

Rev. John Thomas Singleton along with his wife Anna were the patriarch's and matriarch's of a Christian family of eleven children. The Singleton family have been described as a pioneer missionary family in the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (C.M.E.). Singleton, born in Georgia later met and united in Holy Matrimony to Anna Elizabeth Bishop in the presence of two hundred witnesses in Milledgeville, Georgia on July 15, 1888. Between the years of 1890 and 1911, eleven children were added to this union. Rev. and Mrs. Singleton provided an environment for their children which nurtured desirable thoughts, habits and motives and they taught their children character by precept and example. Rev. Singleton received his calling to the ministry and pastored several C.M.E. church's throughout Georgia during his ministry. It was at an early age of the children that the family moved to Atlanta, Georgia where Singleton owned a shoe shop. He also later served as an associate pastor of historic Butler Street C.M.E. Church (1942-1945) and there his children and many of his decedents became and remained faithful members years after his death. Rev. Singleton departed this life in Atlanta in June of 1945. The congregation of Butler Street Church presented the Singleton family with a plaque in 1996 on the occasion of the church's 114th anniversary in memory of Rev. Singleton for his many years of ministry and leadership in the C.M.E. church.

"Working, toiling, laboring up the highway with a devoted and faithful wife, sharing burdens, joys or sorrows, trying to raise and educate eleven children, we always kept in mind THE KINGDOM FIRST...for our toils and cares shall be 'til toils and cares shall end."

-Rev. J. T. Singleton
