Born into slavery in 1808, Page was brought to Florida by his owner, John Parkhill, in 1828. He was ordained as the first black Baptist minister in Florida at New Port, Wakulla County, in 1852. While still a slave, he formed his first congregation at Bel Aire, believed to be the oldest black church congregation in Florida.
